If I make a prediction like this and then say unless you do the following:
- “Drink 3 glasses of water everyday and reduce your driving by 1 mile a week”
- “Eat more Fish”
- “Hug your child”
Would the world really believed I saved it!?!?
When someone predicts something, like “Human Climate Change” (the new politically correct term used because Global Warming is now Global Cooling) and that polar bears will drown, Disney World and NYC will be under water, etc. people listen. If no one is convinced of this “crisis”, it’s no big deal since we won’t remember in 50 years that it was ever predicted. However, if the “crisis” is averted, and now we can claim it was resolved because you followed my lead, how can it be proven?
