<p>[See <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/scott-whitlock/2015/06/12/flashback-abcs-0…; for more.] New York City underwater? Gas over $9 a gallon? A carton&nbsp;of milk costs almost $13? Welcome to June 12, &nbsp;2015. Or at least that was the wildly-inaccurate version of 2015 predicted by ABC News exactly seven years ago. Appearing on <em>Good Morning America </em>in 2008, Bob Woodruff hyped <em>Earth 2100</em>, a special that pushed apocalyptic predictions of the then-futuristic 2015.The segment included supposedly prophetic videos, such as a teenager declaring, &quot;It&#39;s June 8th, 2015. One carton of milk is $12.99.&quot; (On the actual June 8, 2015, a gallon of milk cost, on average, <a href="http://data.bls.gov/cgi-bin/surveymost">$3.39</a&gt;.) Another clip featured this prediction for the current year: &quot;Gas reached over $9 a gallon.&quot; (In reality, gas costs an average of <a href="http://fuelgaugereport.aaa.com/">$2.75</a&gt;.)&nbsp;</p>
