New York Magazine’s “The Uninhabitable Earth” is a repeat of false predictions from decades ago

Real scientists learn form their mistakes, and from the mistakes of others.
However, the environmental doomsayers who have been making these bogus predictions for many decades have expressed absolutely zero interest in learning why these predictions of the past failed to come true.
Instead, these doomsayers pretend that these failed predictions were never made, in the hopes that their current audience has either forgotten about them, or was never even aware of them in the first place.
Whatever happened to the scientific method?
Whatever happened to a willingness to admit to being wrong?
Whatever happened to the desire to learn from one’s mistakes, as well as from the mistakes of others?
For the scientifically illiterates out there who don’t know that carbon dioxide is the bottom of the food chain, here is an article form NASA called “Carbon Dioxide Fertilization Greening Earth, Study Finds.”
Also, back when the dinosaurs were alive, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels were five times as high as they are today, and global temperatures were so high that there were no polar ice caps. But the earth was not “uninhabitable.” It was actually the exact opposite, which is why it was home to the biggest land animals that the planet has ever had.
