Waiting on Doomsday

Sunday, August 26th, 2012

Wired has a great article called Apocalypse Not: Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Worry About End Times

Give it a read, it’s filled with great quotes of harbingers of doom, like the worst President of the latter half the 20th Century, James Earl Carter III telling us back in 1977: “We could use up all the proven reserves of oil in the entire world by the of end of the next decade.”

For more of this prattle, check out the “predictions” from the first Lenin’s Birthday celebration, also known as “Earth Day.”

As I put it quite some time ago, “Between Global Thermonuclear War with the Soviet Union, Global Cooling, the Population Bomb, DDT, AIDS, the Elbola virus, a half dozen other doomsday issues, and now Global Warming, it’s like living in one long 1970’s disaster film.”
