Stop Believing The Chicken Littles Of The World

A CASE IN POINT The Chicken Littles are always wrong.  They are alarmists.  They are thorough going Malthusians ... we're running out of everything important soonest.  The sky is falling.  CO2 will cause global warming ... all this nonsense.  Check out the claims from the past for a hearty laugh.  One of my favorites is:
“At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable.”
• Kenneth Watt, Ecologist
The reality is that these folks are lunatics and always have been.  They don't understand science or technology or much of anything else and they specialize in claiming the world is about to end.  Well by this time it was supposed to be all over and the same voices are repeating the same sad mantras.
