Earth’s Environment Getting Better—Not Worse!

This month, thousands of left-leaning scientists issued a bleak warning to mankind about how we will destroy the planet unless urgent action is taken immediately.  For those of you with a longer memory, you are correct if the alarm bells sound like a re-run.

In an article published in the journal Bioscience, over 15,000 scientists (I’m not sure what the qualifications were to be considered a scientist for this study) said, “Soon it will be too late to shift course away from our failing trajectory, and time is running out.”

The article is meant to update a similarly hyped notice issued back in 1992, ominously titled, World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity, and signed by 1,700 scientists. That treatise predicted many environmental catastrophes to come if humans remained on their current path.

Of course the 1992 predictions were wildly off the mark.

Back then the scientists said that if current trends continued air pollution would get worse, water supplies would run short, oceans would die and the world’s supply of fish would sharply decline, land would become less productive, vast acres of forests would be “gone in a few years,” mass extinctions of species would limit the ability to develop new medicines, and unchecked population growth would cause more to live in poverty and suffer malnutrition. All of this cataclysmic tragedy would occur within “a few decades,” according the report.

So what happened instead?

  • In the United States (where we lead the world in cleaning up our messes), since 1992 air pollution is down for every single pollutant measured my the Environmental Protection Agency. Plus, our carbon dioxide emissions are down thanks—not to government regulations—to the innovation of fracking.
  • Global supplies of clean water have increased. In 1990, 76 percent of the world’s population had reasonable access to drinking water. By 2010 that had increased to 89 percent, according to a report from the Food and Agricultural Organization at the United Nations.
  • The per-capita supply of fish worldwide has climbed roughly 30 percent since 1992.
  • Land has gotten far more productive, not less.  In fact while the share of land devoted to agriculture hasn’t significantly changed since 1990, we are able to feed 34 percent more people—and feed them better than ever.
  • The amount of forestland in the world declined by just 3 percent from 1990 to 2010, while in the U.S. it has increased.
  • The pharmaceutical industry is in a golden age of innovation, with more than 5,000 new treatments in the production pipeline.
  • While there was no concerted effort to control population (aside from the gruesome stuff Planned Parenthood does), the planet’s population grew by almost 1.9 billion — a 34 percent increase in 25 years. All the while world hunger and poverty have dropped dramatically.  The share of the global population that is undernourished declined more than 40 percent between 1990 and 2015, according to the U.N.  Also, the share of the global population living in abject poverty went down by more than 35 percent.

Today’s doomsday scientists are making the same blunder they made 25 years ago. They are blinded by the liberal lens through which they view the world.
