remember New York City underwater? The Park Ave. breast stroke? dire predictions?

Remember the Park Avenue breast stroke?  When New York City was underwater? 

And gas over $9 a gallon? A carton of milk costs almost $13?

Remember when that happened on June 12, 2015? No? This was the wildly-inaccurate world of 2015 predicted by ABC News 11 years ago this week. Appearing on Good Morning America in 2008, Bob Woodruff hyped Earth 2100, a special that pushed apocalyptic predictions of the then-futuristic 2015.

The segment included supposedly prophetic videos, such as a teenager declaring, “It’s June 8th, 2015. One carton of milk is $12.99.” (On the actual June 8, 2015, a gallon of milk cost, on average, $3.39.) Another clip featured this prediction for 2015 “Gas reached over $9 a gallon.” (In reality, gas cost an average of $2.75 four years ago.)


Firenze Sage     On  a serious note. Why don’t the current soothsayers check the past predictions before  making fools of themselves.
