Global warming activist scientists may not be the first to proclaim a doomsday year of 2047 as the end of time. See: Oh No! ’2047 Is The New 2012!’ A new Mayan Calendar Deadline! ‘A climate plague affecting every living thing’ — AP: ‘Temps Go Off the Charts Around 2047′
A Climate Depot analysis has uncovered that 2047 has long been seen as a successor to 2012 as an apocalyptic date.
The website ChaCha.com in 2011, answered the following question: “Why do people think the world will end in 2047?”
ANSWER: ‘Someone started this rumor because calendars on many cell phones go to 2047.’ Screen shot below:
Others have worried about the year 2047 for the same reason. A question posted on a BYU website on February 1, 2012, asked:
“My cell phone’s calendar ends on December 31, 2047. Does that mean that the world is going to end then, according to the obviously infallible Book of Verizon? I’m scared!”
Fear of 2047 is not just limited to cell phone users and global warming activists. A group known as “The Church of !BLAIR!” has long predicted that 2047 would be the end of times as well. September 14, 2047 to be precise.
According the website “Religious Tolerance”: 2047-SEP-14: According to The Church of !BLAIR!, the human race will probably be terminated at 3:28 AM (Soho, England time). The church teaches, with tongue firmly in cheek, that if the human race does not discard their plastic conformity, then the Gods will withdraw their protection. The Gods don’t want us to worship them; they don’t want sacrifices or even offerings. They just want us to rid itself of our excessive “Normalcy”. At that point, Astro-Lemurs (extra-terrestrials similar in shape to lemurs, but with rainbow colored bodies) will attack the entire human race and beat them to death with gigantic burritos. You have been warned. 😉 Unfortunately, the Church is no longer online to reinforce their warnings.
2047 has also been featured in Star Trek as the year Los Angeles “is struck by an earthquake and parts of the cities go to the sea.”
According to Wikipedia, “In SimCity video game, Rio de Janeiro is flooded due to global warming. A balkanized India enters a war.” And “in the real world, on July 1st, Hong Kong may end the one-country-two-systems regime with China, the guarantees will be over.”
For sea food overs, it may be a good thing the world ends in 2047 , because by 2048, we will run of seafood, anyway – according to 2006 research:
Seafood May Be Gone by 2048, Study Says: ‘Unless humans act now, seafood may disappear by 2048, concludes the lead author of a new study that paints a grim picture for ocean and human health.’ — By John Roach for National Geographic News – November 2, 2006
There have been many climate “tipping points” associated with the global warming movement. See: Climate Depot Factsheet on Inconvenient History of Global Warming ‘Tipping Points’ — Hours, Days, Months, Years, Millennium — Earth ‘Serially Doomed
Most recently, NASA’s former lead global warming scientist James Hansen said we only had 4 years left to save the planet in January 2009.

Did Bob Geldof get advance copy of 2047 end of times study but got the year wrong? See: Musician-turned-activist Bob Geldof: ‘All humans will die before 2030′ due to global warming! ‘We may not get to 2030. We need to address the problem of climate change urgently’
