They use it because almost half of the US population has been taught to not think and to disregard reality.
They use it because it works.

The Bill WILL get paid. It is our choice whether it gets paid in currency or suffering.

Yes Phat, unless we pay with cash you WILL become poor and suffer. And generations of Americans will suffer.

The issue is that far too many people don't have a clue about HOW to think.
A lot of folk simply have never learned how to think. We see that here quite often.
They claim that the fact that some projection have not yet happened yet seem to totally misunderstand, seemingly intentionally misunderstand, that the projection were the very things that drove changes that have so far mitigated some of the direst predictions.
Yet so far the trend actually continues to point towards those direst projections and what reality show is that human efforts have changed the timing but so far there is no indication that we have done anything more than postpone the consequences.

And I was one of the programmers not only dealing with the issue but working with state government IT people from all over the US to make sure that any Y2K crisis was only ripples on a summer pond. The Government Information Management Sciences group was active in identifying issues unique to each mainframe computer system and programming language as well as to the entirely different threats faced in the mini, micro and desktop environments.
The threat was very, very real and the cooperation and information sharing that resulted in the very minor problems that did ensue put paid to the absurdity of your positions.

while Sarah is boring it's interesting how many of us were directly involved
While Sarah is boring it's interesting how many of us were directly involved in the Y2K solutions.
Little things that seem unexpected do show up and this thread is one such example.
EvC is a really small sample but consider just how many of those posting in this thread were actually direct parts of why the Y2K issue turned out to be ripples on a summer pond rather than a tsunami.

But no one has been caught crying wolf and you obviously haven't been able to actually read the scientific prediction honestly.
It also seems you have absolutely no understanding of science or even simply how to read with comprehension.
