1986 : Experts Told The US Senate That Earth Would Warm 8 Degrees By 2030’s

FORECASTING FOR THE GREENHOUSE EFFECT
Published: June 15, 1986

The world’s warming trend is still imperfectly understood, but scientists generally agree that the 100-year forecast is worsening. The Senate Environmental Pollution subcommittee last week listened to experts on the ”greenhouse effect,” the atmospheric buildup of carbon dioxide and other gases, primarily from the burning of fossil fuels, that slows the escape of heat from the earth’s surface. Their principal conclusion: its impact will show up sooner than previously expected, perhaps within a decade. The most pessimistic projections envision a rise in global temperatures by as much as 8 degrees Fahrenheit by the 2030’s.

One thing they got right – forecasts are worsening. These experts are snake oil salesmen, stealing taxpayer money.

    That can’t be right – snake oil is valuable.
