I don't know about any such prophets, but the undeniable fact is that the globe is getting warmer. It has happened before. It will happen again. The action of our kind only contribute to make it hotter than before, this time. The effects can be misleading, and the quote tries to mislead and perhaps invalidate some of what goes on within this broader view, by just narrowing it down into something such as maniac confusion.
