RUSH: Our buddies at the Media Research Center went back to their archives and they dragged up (or dragged out) a Good Morning America promo for a climate change special ABC was running back in 2008. Good Morning America played a promo for a special that aired that fall called Earth 2100, and I want to play for you a portion of the promo. Remember, ABC played this in 2008, 11 years ago on Good Morning America…
PETER GLEICK: (dramatic music) In 2015, we’ve still failed to address the climate problem!
JOHN HOLDREN: We’re going to see more floods, more droughts, more (fire noise) wildfires!
UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: (channel change sound effect) Flames cover hundreds of square miles.
MAN 1: (storm b-roll noise) We expect more intense hurricanes!
MAN 2: Well, how warm is it going to get? How much will sea level rise? We don’t really know where the end is.
MAN 3: (channel change sound effect) Temperatures have hit dangerous levels.
MAN 4: (channel change sound effect) Agricultural production’s dropping because temperatures are rising!
HEIDI CULLEN: (images of hungry people) There’s about one billion people who are malnourished. That number just continually grows!
TEENAGE BOY: (prediction of the future) It’s June 8th, 2015. One carton of milk is $12.99.
MAN 5: (prediction of the future) Gas has reached over $9 a gallon!
MAN 6: I’m scared (bleep) right now. But I have to get this out.
RUSH: It was a bunch of young people in this ad. They were predicting that by 2015 — four years ago — milk would be 13 bucks a gallon, gasoline over $9 a gallon. The video effects show Manhattan half underwater.
They show very little of Miami left. This was gonna happen by 2015, and this was just a promo for a special that was to run and did run in the fall of 2008 called Earth 2100 — and it’s a good catch, because it illustrates just how wrong and fearmongering the entire climate change, global warming (now “extreme weather”) crowd is.
