Another “doomsday date” is looming – this one largely forgotten since an Australian television network broadcast globalist predictions of over-population, pollution, hunger and poverty.

That date is 2040 – just 22 years from now.

It’s all based on a computer program developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology circa 1973 by pioneer Jay Forrester who was commissioned by the Club of Rome to determine how sustainable global mega-trends were at the time.

Not surprisingly, given the Club of Rome’s predilections toward the need for global government to steer the course of humanity, the computer read-out showed civilization would come to an end in 2040.

The forecast was made by a program dubbed, of course, “World One.”

The Club of Rome is an organization comprised of thinkers, former world heads of states, scientists, and U.N. bureaucrats with the mission to “promote understanding of the global challenges facing humanity and to propose solutions through scientific analysis, communication, and advocacy.”

Dug up from the TV vaults, the program predicts things are going to get extremely bad in 2020 – just about the time, coincidentally, Donald Trump is seeking re-election as president of the United States. That’s when the quality of life goes down to zero. Pollution becomes so serious it will start to kill people, which in turn will cause the population to diminish, lower than it was in the 1900s.

“At this stage, around 2040 to 2050, civilized life as we know it on this planet will cease to exist,” the report states.

Alexander King, the then-leader of the Club of Rome, evaluated the program’s results to also mean that nation-states will lose their sovereignty, forecasting a New World Order with corporations managing everything.

“Sovereignty of nations is no longer absolute,” King told the Australian Broadcast Network. “There is a gradual diminishing of sovereignty, little bit by little bit. Even in the big nations, this will happen.”

What was the prescription back then to save the planet and humanity?

The Club of Rome predicted some nations, like the U.S., would have to cut back on their appetites for gobbling up the world’s resources. It hoped that in the future world, prestige would stem from “low consumption” (the term “carbon footprint,” had not yet been devised).

The organization is now celebrating its 50th anniversary, still with the same self-description: “The Club of Rome is an organization of individuals who share a common concern for the future of humanity and strive to make a difference. Our members are notable scientists, economists, businessmen and businesswomen, high level civil servants and former heads of state from around the world. Our mission is to promote understanding of the global challenges facing humanity and to propose solutions through scientific analysis, communication and advocacy.”

In October, a 50th anniversary two-day conference will be hold by the Club of Rome on the “Sustainability Challenges for a World of 10 Billion People.”

Six sessions are planned:

1. Addressing a Planetary Emergency: Global Climate Change
2. What Economy is Needed for a World of 10 Billion People?
3. Implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
4. Prospects for Renewable Energy and a True Green Economy
5. Insuring Humanity Survives the Anthropocene
6. Human Values for the Anthropocene

Founded by David Rockefeller, past and current members have included: Al Gore , Mikhail Gorbachev, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Bill Gates, Ted Turner, George Soros, Tony Blair, Deepak Chopra, Henry Kissinger, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Marianne Williamson, King Juan Carlos I and most former United Nations general secretaries and high-ranking officials.
