Maybe it's because I don't want an accessory on my wrist that offers almost no advantages over the cell in my pocket, meanwhile costing the same as a nice watch but looking like an 80's calculator wrist watch.

And something that is only in style for about 6 months... I have a Tag from 2001. I have a Rolex from 1966. A 4 year old iWatch is trash... Not a good investment or accessory.

We can start back in the 50s and 60s when the big fear was global cooling. There were even project on the feasibility of launching large mirrors to the Lagrange points to collect more sunlight to send to the earth. Well, that changed...

Then there is the multi foot sea level rise that started pushing in the 70s but really kicked off in the 80s. Also never happened.

How about the "tipping points" we were supposed to hit in 1990, 1990, 2005, 2010, and 2015. We have another one in 2020 we will also not hit.

Also, by about the same dates as the tipping points above, we were supposed to lose the polar ice cap. Also never happened.

This is the problem with literate people over 40. We remember reading the stuff.
