A New York Times article from 1995 falsely claimed America’s east coast beaches would be gone by 2020 due to human-induced factors, a failed prediction that is emblematic of climate alarmists’ subversive efforts to scare the public into supporting climate change initiatives.
In the article highlighted by meteorologist Chris Martz Monday titled, “Scientists Say Earth’s Warming Could Set Off Wide Disruptions,” The Times cites United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change “experts” who claimed “global climate change is indeed in progress and that at least some of the warming is due to human action, specifically the burning of coal, oil and wood.”
In 1995, experts told the NY Times that east coast beaches would be wiped out by 2020; forecasts based on models. Despite being wrong, rapid acceleration scenarios are still used today. Obviously didn’t learn a darn thing. “Climate science is where arrogance and ignorance meet.” pic.twitter.com/w6yaNyht7a

The article went on to outline changes the UN’s so-called “climate experts” expect, including:
*A continuing rise in average global sea level, which is likely to amount to more than a foot and a half by the year 2100. This, say the scientists, would inundate parts of many heavily populated river deltas and the cities on them, making them uninhabitable, and would destroy many beaches around the world. At the most likely rate of rise, some experts say, most of the beaches on the East Coast of the United States would be gone in 25 years. They are already disappearing at an average of 2 to 3 feet a year.
