On my way to Denver early Wendesday morning. Packing, setting up the bike, and planning trip details today. The computer is the first thing into my tail bag.

Day # 1  :   First stop out of Fresno, California will be somewhere close to Winslow,  Ar (676 miles).   Just turned 70 a couple of days ago,  so,  I never know if I can ride 12 hours,  as planned,  or not,  but that is the plan.   Talk to you all tomorrow (Wednesday) evening.  I am ready for just about anything except a tornado   . . . . . .   not worried,  just saying.   

Day #2  Winslow to Sante Fe,  New Mexico  (326 miles)

Day #3  Sante Fe to Denver (392 miles)

Or I just might ride from Winslow to Denver without a stopover.  


Update:  Got to Winslow.  Almost no "bars"  . . . . .  could not communicate wiith some;  could not update the blog.  

Day #2:  Drove through Santa Fe.  Very nice city.  Made it to Las Vegas N.M.  Easy 5 hour ride into Denver, tomorrow.  A great trip.   Day #3 will put me in Denver around noon after a short,  5 hour ride. 

Update #2:  BTW,  local weather reports for Albuquerque,  New Mexico, announced the end of 183 consecutive days of under-70 degree weather,  with its forecasted high of near 80 degrees,  yesterday.  Hmmm,  no "global warming" in Albuquerque, but the drought continues in California.   Like I always say:  "There is no such thing as global warming;  it's all regional,  folks.  

Update #3:  I will be posting this evening for Saturday's edition  . . . .  nothing revolutionary.  I will be talking about Hillary's campaign and chances for winning the presidency; the sad state of affairs that is the radicalized, Al Sharpton inspired,  anti-American Movement that so destructive to a few of our largest cities; an appraisal of the GOP 2016 candidate offering(s) with Christie, Rick Santorum, and Donald Trump near the bottom,  and,  a review of the nation's economy from some of the best minds in the business.  

Update #4:  When on a trip  (I have put 38,000 miles on my VTX in the last three seasons),  I ride between 7 and 12 hours per day,  depending on whether or not I am taking pictures along the way.  My first long trip (960 miles to Seattle four years ago) found me taking two days to recover the first "leg" of that trip after 8 hours on the road  . . . . .  I had to call my son,  in Seattle,  and tell him I would have to take an extra day to finish the trip) proved the need to get in riding shape and stay in shape.  I weighed 330 pounds,  back then.  Today,  I weigh 263 on my weigh to 220 pounds, and, can ride 12 -14 hours a day, everyday,  if I need to be somewhere.  

Update: Weight loss and a riding tip:
While riding,  you expend 35 calories an hour over your regular energy burn rate, or so I am told. On a round trip of 2,000 miles are more  (this trip will be closer to 2,800 miles by the time I get home, next week),  I can lose 3 to 4 pounds of weight, and this ride is the beginning of my "long-trip" riding season,  although I ride nearly everyday,  year round.    

Judging from minor personal soreness,  the muscles most used on a long ride are (in order of the degree of soreness) your neck muscles,  the upper back muscles across the lower shoulders (not the lower back, surprisingly),  and the inside of your thighs.  It is important to do a little gym work and take a couple of pre-trip rides,  as prelim to any long trip   . . . . . .   especially if you are 70 years old.   

And there is the issue of butt-fatique.  I customized my seat four years ago,  and that has proven to be a good thing.  But,  the butt has a memory.  While the first day is usually very comfortable, for me,  the second day can be more problematic.  I have a sheep-skin seat cover with an added foam foundation,  that changes the seating configuration,  giving the butt a different option   . . . . . . .   one day on and one day off,  gives me a very comfortable,  long-term ride (yes,  I am a genius).    

Update #4  (May 6 in Denver):  Lots of rain and threat of snow for remainder of week  (Wednesday through Sunday).   Wanted to leave here for home,  on Saturday.  If I can get over Raton Pass at the Colorado/New Mex border,  the rest of the ride should be a good ride as far as weather is concerned.  Traffic between Denver and "the Springs,"  could be problematic.  But,  Saturday has the threat of snow and 20 degree weather.  I have heated gear so,  if I want to fight the cold and take a chance on the snow,  I will leave Saturday.  Time will tell.  

I have a couple of business appointments to keep,  while here and a pre-marriage counseling session on Friday.  

If Vail is open and the weather in Utah is allowable,  I might go home via that route.  It is 350 miles closer.  So it is either south to Albuquerque or north over Vail  (11,400 ft).  

Does the Senate have the power to stop a bogus Iranian deal?

The post-Senate bill giving that house review of any proposed deal with Iran by the Obama Administration,  has been sharply criticized by the Right Wing of the GOP,  as "meaningless" in view of the fact after the Senate's review,  there is no reason to believe a Senate rejection of the "deal" would hold up against a Presidential veto.    True or false?   

As it turns out,  the "Corker Bill" (named after the primary sponsor of the bill) only guaranteed a Senate review.  An Obama veto of that proposal was "veto proof,"  which explains why Obama finally agreed to the bill.  

But the treaty,  itself,  after Senate review,  may not survive Senate rejection:

Proponents of the legislation, such as Republican co-author Senator Bob Corker, say the bill gives Congress a chance to review an Iran agreement and could stop Obama from lifting sanctions during the review process. Critics, however, want to strengthen the bill's mechanisms and lower the threshold necessary for Congress to disapprove the deal. Their hope is to be able to ultimately stop Obama from at least lifting those sanctions created by Congress, as opposed to the ones created through executive order or the United Nations Security Council. Boehner's comments this weekend confirm their suspicions that Corker's bill is too weak to stop Obama from implementing a bad Iran deal.  (see Bloomberg for the larger article). 

We should not assume that this issue will be a problem,  however.  To date and after 17 months of negotiations,  there is no "deal."  Nothing could be more of an embarrassment to Obama,  than to come to the end of his presidency,  without a deal,  and to know that the next president,  might not honor the work done on this deal,  especially if that president turns out to be a Republican. 

So far,  all we have is a lot of talk and nothing to show for it.  Maybe,  just maybe,  we are all worried about something that will not happen.  I mean,  Obama has failed in so many issues he has proposed to accomplished.  A failure to make an Iranian deal,  would only add to a legacy of failure,  for Obama. 

The nation has had 6.5 years to witness the implementation of Obama's Utopian policies. No one but the most partisan like what they see.

Maybe Hillary is in more trouble that anyone cares to admit. See what you think:

<<<<  Sunday talk shows were not good for the Clintons.  

Former Democratic San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown: “It could even be fatal to Clinton’s candidacy.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews:   . . . . . .   when countries give you money, they want something besides love.”

Wall Street Journal’s Kimberly Strassel: Everyone seems to understand this is a huge problem, other than the Clintons.  The Clintons seem to think that the normal rules don’t apply to them.”

New York Times Political Reporter Peter Baker: “This is a big issue for Hillary Clinton.”

Pulitzer Prize-Winning Historian Doris Kearns Goodwin:   . . . . . .   she has to answer this herself.”

Bloomberg Politics’ John Heilemann :   And I think they’ve—whether it’s illegal or not—violated the spirit of President Obama’s presidency.”

 Meet the Press host Chuck Todd:    I heard an earful last night [at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner] from various Democrats, some who work in the Clinton campaign that said, “Why is she still taking foreign donations?

National Journal’s Ron Fournier: . . . . . . .    You don’t have to be a lawyer to know that they violated ethics laws. . . . . . . . . This is very bad governance.”

Bloomberg Politics’ Mark Halperin: The Clinton Cash revelations are “extraordinarily serious,” said Halperin. “  . . . . .    everybody knows that a lot of those donations were from people who wanted access to the Clintons.”

Finally, GW Bush has had enough and speaks out against Obama and what this man is doing to this country.

<<< Bush shakes hands with as prolific a political coward and backstabber,  as this country has ever seen.  Even Bush has had enough. "By hook or crook" were Obama's words a few weeks ago,  words that perfectly frame his actions as our first Rogue President.   

In a closed-door meeting with Jewish Donors Saturday night, former President George W. Bush delivered his harshest public criticisms to date against his successor on foreign policy, saying that President Barack Obama is being naïve about Iran and the pending nuclear deal and losing the war against the Islamic State.  One attendee at the Republican Jewish Coalition session, held at the 

Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas with owner Sheldon Adelson in attendance, transcribed large portions of Bush’s remarks. The former president, who rarely ever criticizes Obama in public, at first remarked that the idea of re-entering the political arena was something he didn’t want to do. He then proceeded to explain why Obama, in his view, was placing the U.S. in "retreat" around the world. He also said Obama was misreading Iran’s intentions while relaxing sanctions on Tehran too easily. 

1.  Bush said that Obama’s plan to lift sanctions on Iran with a promise that they could snap back in place at any time was not plausible. 
2.  He also said the deal would be bad for American national security in the long term.

3.  He criticized Obama’s decision to withdraw all U.S. troops in Iraq at the end of 2011 as a "classic bluder." 

4.  Bush said he views the rise of the Islamic State as al-Qaeda’s "second act” and that they may have changed the name but that murdering innocents is still the favored tactic. 

5. He defended his own administration’s handling of terrorism, noting that the terrorist Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who confessed to killing Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, was captured on his watch: “Just remember the guy who slit Danny Pearl’s throat is in Gitmo, and now they're doing it on TV.”

6.  Bush pointed out that Obama promised to degrade and destroy Islamic State's forces but then didn’t develop a strategy to complete the mission,

Before watching another black official refusing to salute the Flag, watch this video and know this: radical blacks do not represent black Amerian opinion, not by a long shot.

Update and a correction to the original report,  below.  It is 1 pm PST on Monday,  and I am watching a Baltimore Police Force that has been ordered by this black mayor,  to only use rocks,  not guns or rubber bullets,  and to give the rioters their space to loot and burn.  It is embarrassing,  as I watch what is happening.  

Clearly,  I wanted to give the Mayor a good report.  Turns out,  she is most undeserving.  

Original report: 

Now,  don't misunderstand.  The Mayor has her black bias  (we ALL have biases),  and she thanked Frarrakhan's Islamic Nation for their cooperation,  but the point is this,  bias or not,  peace and diplomacy are seen as "preferred action" to burning cities and threatening police. 

This is how far off base, the Radicalized Black Community, a definite minority within the larger black community, has taken their anti-American agenda - to the point of viewing the Flag as a racist symbol. Time for them to leave the nation.

A little truth about the history of the Democrat Party, a history they want you to believe the GOP created.

Editor, click to enlarge.
I find it interesting that the history Democrats complain about most,  slavery,  the KKK, Jim Crow laws,  and Manifest Destiny,  were all the creation of Democrats to the exclusion of Republicans.  How this bunch of hypocrites managed to rewrite history on all of this,  is beyond me,  but the facts are the fact.  

I watched the Fox News program,  Kit Carson,  today,  and was startled to see the sad role that Manifest Destiny played in the conquest of the Western United States.  The following was taken from Wikipedia,  hardly a conservative outpost, and,  adds to the history of the once,  imperialistic/racist collective,  that was the Democrat Party through the 1960's.  I don't mention this to blame Dems for the past,  but,  if they think they can turn the tables and blame the GOP for that which they created,   well,  that is not going to happen here,  at Midknight Review   ~   editor,  John Smtihson.

Historians have emphasized that "Manifest Destiny" was a contested concept—Democrats endorsed the idea but many prominent Americans (such as Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, and most Whigs) rejected it. Historian Daniel Walker Howe writes, "American imperialism did not represent an American consensus; it provoked bitter dissent within the national polity.... Whigs saw America's moral mission as one of democratic example rather than one of conquest."[4]
Newspaper editor John O'Sullivan coined the term Manifest Destiny in 1845 to describe the essence of this mindset which was a rhetorical tone.[5] It was used by Democrats in the 1840s to justify the war with Mexico and it was also used to divide half of Oregon with the United Kingdom. But Manifest Destiny always limped along because of its internal limitations and the issue of slavery, says Merk. It never became a national priority. By 1843 John Quincy Adams, originally a major supporter, had changed his mind and repudiated Manifest Destiny because it meant the expansion of slavery in Texas.[6]
Merk concludes:
From the outset Manifest Destiny—vast in program, in its sense of continentalism—was slight in support. It lacked national, sectional, or party following commensurate with its magnitude. The reason was it did not reflect the national spirit. The thesis that it embodied nationalism, found in much historical writing, is backed by little real supporting evidence.[7]

Libs and the pathology that allows Utopian political theory:

I have a theory about Libs and the pathology that allows them to make bizarre and ridiculous statements: their synapses are all screwed up when it comes to political/critical thinking. 

Editor with his happy face
So they believe that you can simply say your are a women and, Bam!, you are a she, or "Bush brought down the Twin Tower" when we actually watched them fall because of two planes, or "We are friends to Israel" while divulging Israel's nuclear secrets and enabling Iran to pursue its nuclear intent, or "now is the time the oceans begin to recede and the earth begins to cool" or "Hillary is a rich, Middle Class babe," or "its best to outlaw DDT and let 20 million die in Africa via malaria than fight the Greenies in this country," or "tobacco is more addictive than heroine," or, "its a good idea to turn all the drivers in Colorado into Stoners, I mean what could go wrong?" or "we will never run out of money so why a balanced budget," or "there is no God except when we choose to quote Him on the issue of welfare for the poor." 

Get it? And, oh, case closed !!!!!

We don't pay ransom for hostages? Bull. Obama paid 5 million for 16 Americans when Egypt was being over-run by the Muslim Brotherhood (with the blessings of Obama).

<<<<<    Warren Weinstein of Rockville, Maryland, was killed in a drone attack in January.  Obama could have paid a ransom or allowed for one to be paid,  in view of what he did in the Bowe Bergdahl "trade" and the 5 million he gave to Egypt rebels for the freedom of 7 Americans,  back in 2012.  Obama did not bother to tell the family until earlier in April.  The negotiated for Weinstein's release for three months without knowing that he had died months earlier

CAIRO (March 1, 2012) – Seven American rights workers are on a plane out of Egypt after the U.S. paid nearly $5 million in bail costs to secure their freedom.    Egyptian officials said the U.S. paid $300,000 each for 16 Americans, nine of whom were already out of the country.    The State Department said the money was paid by the nongovernmental organizations where the democracy and rights workers work. However, the NGOs receive U.S. funding for their operations.

Editor's notes:  Defenders of Obama,  claim the money was "bail money."  Of course,  this is beside the fact that these Americans were not going to on trial for anything.  They were only taken captive for ransom,  and Obama,  determined not to have "Jimmy Carter moment,"  paid the big bucks.  Understand that his was for the release of 7 Americans still being held and 9 Americans who were no longer in Egypt,  making "bail money" a false narrative.  

Weather data versus theoretical weather "models" tell us that warming is more a myth than a reality . . . . so says a Duke University study. Grrrrr, those damned rightwingers at Duke !!!

Click to enlarger

 <<<  On the left, we have the analytical results  of actual physical evidence and observation,  versus,  on the right,  a consensus summary of mathematical equations called "weather models," used to scare folks over the past 20 plus years.  Turns out that satellite data trumps mathematical theory. 

 Here is the headline:

Our climate models are WRONG: Global warming has slowed - and recent changes are down to ‘natural variability’, says study

  • Duke University study looked at 1,000 years of temperature records
  • It compared it to the most severe emissions scenarios by the IPCC
  • Found that natural variability can slow or speed the rate of warming
  • These 'climate wiggles' were not properly accounted for in IPCC report

The study compared its results to the most severe emissions scenarios outlined by the Intergovernmental Panel [the United Nations - editor] on Climate Change (IPCC).

'Based on our analysis, a middle-of-the-road warming scenario [as opposed to a fearful and destructive warming trend - editor] is more likely, at least for now,' said Patrick Brown, a doctoral student in climatology at Duke University.

The research, uses observed data, rather than the more commonly used climate models, to estimate decade-to-decade variability.

Holder's Department of Justice was a model on par with that of the JFK years. Says who? Says Holder.

A racist sleaze who replaced 40 of the DOJ top investigative positions with Progressives who shared the same sense of black militancy as Holder.  His DOJ refused to prosecute black on white crime, freed two convicted New Black Panthers waiting sentencing,  brought no criminal complaints against any of Obama's Wall Street buds,  and described himself as a principled department head,  when no one else of import,  was/is willing to make that  claim.  50 years from now,  he will be forgotten,  having done nothing to merit his memory as AG.  Good riddens to a near evil member of the radicalized Progressive arm of the Democrat Party. 

No more Mr. Nice Guys, especially if they will not go to bat for their own kin.

<<<< I like Jeb,  but this is why I will not support his nomination during the primary process.  

As reported in Breitbart,  Jeb declined any harsh criticism of Hillary Clinton,  despite Bill's disgracefull accusations against brother George,  and Obama's outrageous politics centered in a blame game featuring brother George.   " . . . . . . .   all Bush would say about the growing controversy is that Clinton is “going to have to be held accountable, like all of us, about dealings.” He added, “That’s part of the process, right?”The one-time Florida Governor continued saying, “I don’t ‘go off’ on Hillary Clinton.”

Me?  I am sick and tired of the nice guy approach taken by the Bush family and losers such as McCain and the venerable Mitt Romney.

Hillary thinks she is going to change our deeply felt religious beliefs as she feeds rhetorical coodies to the abortion lobby. Time for real leadership, after eight years of failed domestic reformation, no?

 <<<  I am a serious candidate.  Scouts Honor.  Don't I look serious?  

Mark Hensch / The Hill:
Clinton: ‘Deep-seated’ beliefs block abortion access  —  Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Thursday said “deep-seated ... religious beliefs” have to be changed before the world's women will get full access to abortion.  —  “Far too many women are still denied critical access …
Editor's notes:  I don't intend to denigrate,  but,  seriously,  is this woman not in touch with reality or what?  "Women are still denied critical access?"  1.4 million abortions per year,  make you out to be a liar,  plain and simple.  
In addition,  she has no concern for a 7 pound infant,  in the third trimester,  being pulled apart during an abortion.  Nazi Germany has absolutely nothing over the abortion lobby in this country. 
She is not charismatic in the slightest,  and has no innate ability to drive the changing of attitudes and deep-seated religious beliefs.  In point of fact,  her statement outlines an impossible agenda.  Who in this world will surrender to her logic against "deep-seated religious beliefs?"  Whether you are religious or not,  no one in their right mind could see this as a serious statement of intent.

Obama takes full responsibility. Seriously . . . . . . so what?

Erin Dooley / ABC News:
Obama: ‘I Take Full Responsibility’ For US Operation That Killed Innocent Hostages Held By Al Qaeda … President Obama said today that he takes “full responsibility” for a U.S. government counterterrorism operation that killed two innocent hostages held by al Qaeda.

For the record, 11 of Bill Clinton's 13 speech, in which he earned $500,000 to $750,000 came after Hillary became Secretary of State. Who would think $750,000 for an hours work is money laundering? Apparently nobody.

Cloward-Piven, Saul Alinsky, Utopian style socialism, One World governance - unfamiliar terms that are at the center of the coming elections.

The Cloward-Piven strategy has been around since 1966 and involves destroying the current social infrastructure in order to clear it away for a new system. Specifically, inundate social systems such as welfare with impossible demands until they collapse under the weight. Then, use the social unrest that follows the loss of benefits to push society into collapse and erase capitalism. Their strategy goes hand-in-hand with Saul Alinsky and Rules for Radicals and thus fits well into the mindset of Alinsky acolytes such as Barack Obama and his administration. This can be seen in the successful push to get Americans on government benefits and this author contends through the push for amnesty.

If one wants to completely collapse capitalism and replace both it and its complimentary representative form of government with a central system, one has to collapse the state and local governments into that central system. This is being accomplished through ever increasing programs that are mandated by the federal government but left to more local sources of revenue for funding. It has taken decades to get the drain in place, but now it is and those that want to bring down the system need to prime the pump.

While there are a tremendous number of Americans on government services and those services have sometimes failed, there has not been enough social unrest to crash the system. Certain race mongers have even tried to get minorities to rise up and riot as they did in the 1960’s, but this also hasn’t had the desired effect.

The only thing left to do is bring more people into the system to further strain benefit systems. The current influx of immigrants from Central America, especially children, is meant to be that final death blow. The federal government is moving these children all over the country and paying for their foster care. However, all the other benefits they are required to receive such as schooling and healthcare are covered through state and local programs. In the case of school, the Justice Department isn’t even allowing local school systems to question the ages or immigration status of incoming students. There are literally adults with greying hair claiming to be 17 and signing up for high school. Its very doubtful they will show up, but the services and the money to pay for them still have to be allocated.
As the public stays focused on the amnesty argument, the open borders and government policies are ensuring that more and more people are pouring into the country. No matter their intentions, they are utilizing services that are costing money. Pundits and others argue about where the money is going to come from to pay for the increased strain on the system, but the truth is that the money is meant to run out. The pressure will build, benefit structures will collapse, and the civil unrest envisioned by Cloward and Piven will finally be realized. At that point, the national government will be the only entity left to step forward and “save the day.” The federal system itself will break down and a socialist centralized government will take its place.

Quinnipiac: Rubio 15%; Bush 13%, Cruz 9%. Hillary is 47 to 48 in terms of trust to the negative. (no article).

51 million immigrants in 8 years with less than 10 million becoming citizens: Such is a part of a plan; it is intentional and Utopian, marking the end of this once great nation as we know it.

Washington Examiner:       A report from the Center for Immigration Studies that analyzed the statistics said that by 2023, one in seven U.S. residents will be an immigrant, rising to one in five by 2060 when the immigrant population totals 78 million.
The report was provided to Secrets and released Wednesday evening.
The surge in immigrant population, both legal and illegal, threatens to slam into the presidential campaign as GOP candidates move to figure out what their position is and the president tries to use executive powers to exempt some 5 million illegals from deportation.

Editor's notes:  Understand that is not the white versus everyone else,  thing,  that is the problem,  Rather,  it is the legal versus the illegal thing that is the problem.  And why so many illegals?  

Well,  for starters,  many like the support and given to them when they come to this country.  Secondly,  the immigration-to-citizenship system is so outdated as to be almost non-existent,  and leadership such as that offered by the radicalized Utopian,  B Obama,   is doing absolutely nothing to fix the system;  contrary to popular Utopian pov,  the pen and the phone cannot be used to legislate repair to our legal,  immigration process, importing folks from South America not withstanding. 

During the immigration-to-citizenship process, applicants are educated as to our national history,  our Constitutional and the rule of law and order that is a part of our grand tradition.  The nation,  as we know it,  will not survive if this process is overwhelmed and,or circumvented,  as is the intent of those radicals in current national leadership.  That is problem.  

The radical Utopians want all elections to be about race and gender and fringe issues,  because such issues mask their Utopian,  One World,  agenda to change this country into something very different from the Founders Intent.    They simply do not want the problems fixed because they do not share the same concern for the continuation of this once great nation,  as does the remaining patriot population.  Overwhelming the immigration process goes to their agenda,  while destroying that which was “built by slave masters and imperialists.” 

It was M Obama who framed the radicalized Barack Obama with these words:  

 May of 2008:
MICHELLE OBAMA, speaking in Puerto Rico: "Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we're going to have to change our traditions, our history; we're going to have to move into a different place as a nation."

It was Barack Obama's words that confirm her statement,  words spoken in 2014: 

A similar statement was presented on 7/23/14,  saying much the same thing as the above:  

“Part of people’s concern is just the sense that around the world the old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite yet to where we need to be in terms of a new order that’s based on a different set of principles, that’s based on a sense of common humanity, that’s based on economies that work for all people. … But here in the United States, what people are also concerned about is the fact that although the economy has done well in the aggregate, for the average person it feels as if incomes, wages just haven’t gone up; that people, no matter how hard they work, they feel stuck.”

And,  without debate,  this contrast as to the future of the nation,  is what is at stake in the coming election cycle and beyond. 

In a word,  2016 will be about the United States and its “becoming” as a member state of the world,  with its governing power centered in something similar to the United Nations,  or,  the United States as sovereign nation and leader in a world of bullies,  thieves and authoritarian  power(s). 

Environmental Predictions made on the First Earth Day, back in 1970. Like I always say: These people could not predict what happens after one flushes a toilet:

How accurate were the predictions made around the time of the first Earth Day in 1970?  Here are 18 predictions of that day and time. 

1. Harvard biologist George Wald estimated that “civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”
2. “We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation,” wrote Washington University biologist Barry Commoner in the Earth Day issue of the scholarly journal Environment.
3. The day after the first Earth Day, the New York Times editorial page warned, “Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.”
4. “Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make,” Paul Ehrlich confidently declared in the April 1970 Mademoiselle. “The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.”
5. “Most of the people who are going to die in the greatest cataclysm in the history of man have already been born,” wrote Paul Ehrlich in a 1969 essay titled “Eco-Catastrophe! “By…[1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.”
6. Ehrlich sketched out his most alarmist scenario for the 1970 Earth Day issue of The Progressive, assuring readers that between 1980 and 1989, some 4 billion people, including 65 million Americans, would perish in the “Great Die-Off.”
7. “It is already too late to avoid mass starvation,” declared Denis Hayes, the chief organizer for Earth Day, in the Spring 1970 issue of The Living Wilderness.
8. Peter Gunter, a North Texas State University professor, wrote in 1970, “Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions….By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.”
9. In January 1970, Life reported, “Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….”
10. Ecologist Kenneth Watt told Time that, “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.”
11. Barry Commoner predicted that decaying organic pollutants would use up all of the oxygen in America’s rivers, causing freshwater fish to suffocate.
12. Paul Ehrlich chimed in, predicting in his 1970 that “air pollution…is certainly going to take hundreds of thousands of lives in the next few years alone.” Ehrlich sketched a scenario in which 200,000 Americans would die in 1973 during “smog disasters” in New York and Los Angeles.
13. Paul Ehrlich warned in the May 1970 issue of Audubon that DDT and other chlorinated hydrocarbons “may have substantially reduced the life expectancy of people born since 1945.” Ehrlich warned that Americans born since 1946…now had a life expectancy of only 49 years, and he predicted that if current patterns continued this expectancy would reach 42 years by 1980, when it might level out.
14. Ecologist Kenneth Watt declared, “By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate…that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, `Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, `I am very sorry, there isn’t any.'”
15. Harrison Brown, a scientist at the National Academy of Sciences, published a chart in Scientific American that looked at metal reserves and estimated the humanity would totally run out of copper shortly after 2000. Lead, zinc, tin, gold, and silver would be gone before 1990.
16. Sen. Gaylord Nelson wrote in Look that, “Dr. S. Dillon Ripley, secretary of the Smithsonian Institute, believes that in 25 years, somewhere between 75 and 80 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.”
17. In 1975, Paul Ehrlich predicted that “since more than nine-tenths of the original tropical rainforests will be removed in most areas within the next 30 years or so, it is expected that half of the organisms in these areas will vanish with it.”
18. Kenneth Watt warned about a pending Ice Age in a speech. “The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years,” he declared. “If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.”
