Globaloney: In 2009 ABC News Said We’d All Be Dead From Global Warming by 2015

Well, do you feel dead? ABC said we’d all be dead by now, thanks to global warming. In 2009 an ABC “News” special claimed that by the year 2015 the world will have been destroyed by global warming and we’d all be dead or dying by now. Missed it by that much, huh?

In 2009, ABC “News” aired a piece called “Earth 2100,” hosted by Bob Woodruff.

ABC News ran a news special in 2009 called Earth 2100, a program warning its viewers about the dangers of climate change.

ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff says the show “puts participants in the future and asks them to report back about what it is like to live in this future world. The first stop is the year 2015.”

Describing dangerous temperature levels and dropping agricultural production, the news package brings in The Weather Channel’s Heidi Cullen, who says, “There’s about one billion people who are malnourished. That number just continually grows.”

The doomsday predictions for 2015 go further and include $12.00 for a gallon of milk and $9.00 a gallon for gasoline, if there is any gas at all that is left.

Chris Cuomo, who teased the special at the time, said to Woodruff of the predictions, “I think we’re familiar with some of these issues, but, boy, 2015? That’s seven years from now. Could it really be that bad?”

Woodruff replies, “It’s very soon, you know. But all you have to do is look at the world today right today. You know, you’ve got gas prices going up. You got food prices going up. You’ve got extreme weather.
