The Ice Age Effect

"It is 12,500 years since the last ice age ended, which means the next
one is long overdue.  When the ice comes, most of North America, Britain,
and northern Europe will disappear under the glaciers. ... The right
conditions can arise within a single decade."
                                       -- Fred Hoyle
                                       Ice: The Ultimate Human Catastrophe
                                       (Continuum Publishing, 1981)

"...the atmosphere has been growing gradually cooler for the past three
decades.  The trend shows no indication of reversing."
                                       -- TIME, June 24, 1974

"...the overall cooling trend is unmistakable, and in coming years it
will profoundly affect agriculture, geoploitics, and human survival
                                       -- Dr. Reid Bryson, People
                                       November 24, 1980

"For years now, climatologists have foreseen a trend toward colder
weather -- longer range, to be sure, but a trend as inevitable as death.
.. According to [one] theory, all it would take is a single cold
summer to plunge the earth into a sudden apocalypse of ice."
                                       -- Rolling Stone, May 12, 1983

AIDS Apocalypse

"One leading medical school on the West Coast had published a study
which shows that the acutal number of AIDS victims is from 3 to 10 times
the CDC 'official statistics.'  This would mean ... 14 million may be
walking around with the antibodies indicating that they have been
exposed to the disease."
                                       -- Dr. James McKeever
                                       The AIDS Plague
                                       (Omega Publications, 1985)

"By the end of 1986, there will be approximately 350,000 persons
suffereing severe debilitating physical and mental illnesses
as a result of AIDS infection who are not included in the total of
AIDS cases reported by the CDC."
                                       -- Gene Antonio
                                       The AIDS Cover-Up?
                                       (Ignatius Press, 1986)

"The experts [World Health Organization] predict that 100 million will
be stricken by 1990."
                                       -- TIME, December 1, 1986

"Research studies now project that one in five -- listen to me, hard to
believe -- one in five heterosexuals could be dead from AIDS at the end
of the next three years.  That's by 1990.  One in five.  It is no longer
a gay disease."
                                       -- Oprah Winfrey
                                       "The Oprah Winfrey Show"
                                       February 18, 1987
