According to the UN's MyWorld poll of seven million people in 194 countries, out of the sixteen possibilities climate action came out ... wait for it ... dead last.

In general, the only people who thought it was important were the perpetually offended white wokerati with pronouns ...

Why is it that rational folks around the planet put the priority of climate action so low? Well, first off, there are serious issues out there that affect us today — affordable food, jobs, healthcare, reliable energy for farmers and householders, real stuff, not a bunch of climate blowhards screaming that the sky is falling.

And the second reason is, folks know in their heart of hearts that science is all about making falsifiable predictions ... and in that regard, climate science is a dumpster fire.

So I thought I'd take a look at what climate scientists, and those who believe climate scientists, and governments, and the UN, have predicted about the future. We'll start with this classic:

Strongest earthquake since volcano erupted shakes La Palma island - 4.5 magnitude

Lava cascades from Spain's Cumbre Vieja volcano

Lava cascades from Spain's Cumbre Vieja volcano
A 4.5-magnitude earthquake shook La Palma in Spain's Canary Islands in what was the strongest recorded temblor since volcanic eruptions began 26 days ago, authorities said Thursday.

The quake was one of around 60 recorded overnight, Spain's National Geographic Institute said, as the Cumbre Vieja volcano continued to spew fiery rivers of lava that are destroying everything in their path and dumping molten rock into the Atlantic Ocean.

The lava has partially or completely destroyed more than 1,600 buildings, about half of them houses, officials said, though prompt evacuations have so far prevented any deaths. Around 7,000 people have had to abandon their homes, 300 of them Thursday.

A man stands near his house damaged by an earthquake in Karangasem on the island of Bali, Indonesia, Saturday, Oct. 16, 2021. A few people were killed and another several were injured when a moderately strong earthquake and an aftershock hit the island early Saturday.
Three people were killed and another seven were injured when a moderately strong earthquake and an aftershock hit Indonesia's resort island of Bali early Saturday.

The quake hit just before dawn, causing people to run outdoors in a panic. It struck just as the island is beginning to reopen to tourism as the pandemic wanes.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the magnitude 4.8 quake was centered 62 kilometers (38.5 miles) northeast of Singaraja, a Bali port town. Its shallow depth of 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) may have amplified the amount of damage.

A magnitude 4.3 aftershock followed. That quake was relatively deep, at 282 kilometers (174 miles).
