There have always been predictions about the end of the world. Here are a few recent examples:
2006-JAN-25: James Kingsley predicted a major "Earthquake Storm" near Los Angeles, CA. It was to start shortly after midnight of 2006-JAN-25, last for 2 hours, and be centered in Redondo Beach. The individual quakes range in magnitude from 7.1 to 7.9, and will be called "The Big One".
2006-MAY-25: Eric Julien of the Exopolitics Institute predicted that a remnant from a comet would hit the Atlantic ocean and generate massive tsunami almost 200 meters (650 feet) in height. Most heavily affected will be the Atlantic coasts between the equator and the Tropic of Cancer. He predicted that there will be tens of millions of deaths. North America and Europe was to be hit with less devastating tsunamis. Dozens of underwater volcanoes were to erupt, raising the temperature of the ocean to the boiling point.
2006-JUN-06: "666," the number of the beast mentioned in the biblical book of Revelation, is really a date: 06/06/06 or 2006-JUN-6. He expected the rapture and start of the tribulation on that date.

100 months - that's a nice round number. Especially handy if you're running a publicity-seeking campaign.

I don't suppose this Andrew Simms fellow has a career dependant on people believing in climate change?

Expart - he certainly does. He is Policy Director at the New Economics Foundation and head of the Climate Change programme. I don't imagine you get that job without being fully committed to the party line.

Yeah, I somehow imagine that the pandemic has not been much of a great "leveler" for those poorest in our society. :( more
