The Vanishing 50 Million.

Back in 2005, the United Nations Environment Programme predicted that global warming would create 50 million climate refugees by 2010. It was repeated by the The Left/ Mainstream Media as gospel, proof that "we have to do something" - e.g., more government control over our lives.

2010 is now past, and someone took a look at the UN's claim. Not only was the UN off by, oh... 50 million, they have tried to disappear the prediction now that is makes the UN and the chicken little AGW cult look like fools.

Read the whole thing. And remember this next time you hear some "expert" on TV or radio claiming dire consequences because of "global warming" "climate change".

UPDATE: Oh, wait... it's now 50 million by 2020. Geez. These people are starting to sound less like scientists and more like end-of-the-world types when they wake up the day after they predicted the end of it all.
