As the media have collaborated to bombard the populace with environmental and climate doom propaganda, it is only fair and reasonable to hold their feet to the fire (as it were) and examine past media promoted predictions that have failed to materialise.

From The Canberra Times, September 26, 1988

On September 7, 2018, which is close enough to 30 years after the above article, an aircraft landed on a runway that was still under construction at the Maldives International Airport. Why would one build a new runway when the island was soon to be completely underwater?

I guess since the tourists keep visiting, the drinking water did not run out in 1992 either. Should we score this as two fails?

Current score: Experts 0 – Reality 13.
