“It’s June 8th, 2015. One carton of milk is $12.99.”
“Gas reached over $9 a gallon.”
Oh yeah, and New York City is underwater.
That was according to a futuristic presentation put together by special guest Bob Woodruff on ABC News’s Good Morning America recorded on June 8, 2008.
It was supposed to be realistic too. This wasn’t a joke or a screening of the next apocalyptic Hollywood flick. This was the true terrors of global warming unleashed, altering life as we’ve known it forever. This was likely!
So likely, that Chris Cuomo, then host of Good Morning America, expressed apprehension about the looming possibility. “I think we’re familiar with some of these issues,” he said, “but, boy, 2015? That’s seven years from now. Could it really be that bad?”
The answer, of course, is no.
Fast-forward to reality, when the average gallon of milk costs $3.39, gasoline is $2.75, and New York City is definitely still there.
Looks like all that hype and horror was for nothing. Not that Bob Woodruff, ABC in general or Good Morning America in particular will say as much.
Just goes to show you that it’s a joke to call ABC “news,” and global warming isn’t science; it’s one giant, ridiculous hoax right up there with Scientology and Alien Greys. It’s just that ABC and global warming have managed to snow a lot more people.
