Guardian 1974 : Global Cooling Most Serious Threat Humans Have Ever Faced

The Guardian says global warming is the most serious threat man has ever faced.


In 1974 the Guardian said global cooling is the biggest threat man has ever faced.

The Guardian also says now that the ice age scare (which they were pimping in 1974) never happened.

    The media lies.

    Finally most people have figured that out.

    September 28, 2015 Americans’ Trust in Media Remains at Historical Low

    Four in 10 Americans say they have “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of trust and confidence in the mass media to report the news fully, accurately and fairly….

    Americans’ confidence in the media has slowly eroded from a high of 55% in 1998 and 1999. Since 2007, the majority of Americans have had little or no trust in the mass media….

    This decline follows the same trajectory as Americans’ confidence in many institutions and their declining trust in the federal government’s ability to handle domestic and international problems over the same time period….

    Notice the two categories of “a great deal” or “a fair amount” had to be combined. This is new because the historic reporting of just “a great deal” formerly used is now below 10%. (More ‘Hide the Decline’ )

    This year is worse:

    September 14, 2016 Americans’ Trust in Mass Media Sinks to New Low

    Americans’ trust and confidence in the mass media “to report the news fully, accurately and fairly” has dropped to its lowest level in Gallup polling history, with 32% saying they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the media. This is down eight percentage points from last year.

    Given Gallop says Obummers approval rating is 54% and the Unemployment is 9.7% (Instead of the more realistic 23%) It makes you wonder just how far the ‘trust in media’ has really sunk.

    Luckily an April 18, 2016 article tells you what Gallup is trying to hide. Only 6% of Americans trust the media – survey

    A survey of more than 2,000 adults released on Sunday showed that trust in the media has dipped to dramatically low levels. About 52 percent of respondents said they have “some confidence” in the press, while 41 percent said they have “hardly any confidence.”

    “Over the last two decades, research shows the public has grown increasingly skeptical of the news industry,” the report from the American Press Institute reads. “The study reaffirms that consumers do value broad concepts of trust like fairness, balance, accuracy, and completeness. At least two-thirds of Americans cite each of these four general principles as very important to them.”….

    The American Press Institute report comes in the wake of a September 2015 Gallup poll which found that only 7 percent of Americans have a great deal of trust in the media, with about 33 percent saying they had a fair amount, and 60 percent claiming they had either little or no trust in the media…

    I wonder how badly the trust has eroded since April.

  2. The irony is that sometime in the next ~2000 years we expect to get a sharp decline in temperature (because that’s what has happened in most previous inter-glacial periods).

    That means there’s about a 1 in 20 chance that within the lifetime of children born today, that they will see the beginning of the next “ice-age” (although technically it’s just a recurrent dip in temperatures for a few thousand year and not the actual ice-age which takes ~100,000 years).

    Also … there’s no chance of getting more than a 1-2C rise in global temperature – because something in the climate system stops it happening (as the ice-age record shows – something stops the “runaway warming” coming out of an ice-age).

    Cold has killed around a million people in the UK since Hanson lied to the senate about global warming. In the same time, in the worst summer (2003) there’s evidence of a few thousand heat related deaths. In other words, it could get a lot hotter and they’d still be more cold related deaths than heat related.

    Everything points to the most serious problem being a potential “ice-age”, it will certainly result in severe economic problems and cold related deaths. In contrast any warming will be halted, it will REDUCE deaths and is very unlikely to result in economic harm, in contrast the net result even according to Stern is likely to be beneficial.

    So, why aren’t we being scared witless about impending cooling? Why isn’t NASA forging cooling data? … the reason is because the scamsters never found a way to blame cooling on humanity and thereby get our stupid politicians to attempt to stop cooling by pouring shedloads of cash into the pockets of the scamsters. The politicians never found a way to convince the public that cooling need us to go along with crazy political change supposedly needed to combat “climate change”.

    But … when the warming scam is dead as we get further natural cooling … and there’s no chance of more money for the scamsters or more vile political schemes being foisted on us through global warming … just you watch how quickly the same people attempt to use supposed “runaway cooling” to line their pockets and push through their vile politics.

      “Cold has killed around a million people in the UK since Hanson lied to the senate about global warming.”

      That’s not true, is it?

      where are the figures?

      • Gail Combs says:

        I really really would like to see the ClimAstrologists and their enablers like Jimmy Boy and others here facing Nurenburg style trials for all the deaths they have KNOWINGLY caused.

        In the UK alone the number of deaths:
        For 2007-2008 was 27,480.
        For 2008-2009 the 36,700.
        In 2009/2010 there were 25,400
        2010-2011 showed 25,700
        2012-2013 there were 31,100
        TOTAL = 146,380 in the five years up to 2013.
        THAT is only the death tolls the UK government is willing to tell us.

        2/04/2015 Death toll soars as cold snap hits UK

        According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS) some 28,800 people died in the fortnight ending January 23….

        Fuel poverty scandal

        Meanwhile, the Daily Telegraph reported that the winter death toll is expected to exceed 40,000, the highest figure for the past 15 years.

        So you can figure some where around 35,000 a year since the insanity started James Hansen and Tim Wirth deliberately Gaslighted the US Congress 1988.

        In 2010 the news reported:
        Britain is freezing to death
        MIDDLE class families are among millions of Britons who cannot afford to heat their homes this winter, as elderly ride on buses all day to stay in the warm.

        One study has estimated that biofuels could be causing as many as 192,000 excess deaths per year. – Goklany IM. Could biofuel policies increase death and disease in developing countries? Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, 2011; 16: 9–13.

        Indur Goklany in looking at the daily death reports found excess winter deaths are more than triple the number killed on the road.

        The statistics indicate that:

        For the 10-year period, 1998-2007, Australia had excess winter deaths of 6,779 per yr out of a total of 131,613 deaths per yr (avg.) This works out to 5.2% of all deaths per yr (on avg).
        For the 10-yr period, 1999-2008, NZ had excess winter deaths of 1,542 per yr out of a total of 27,792 deaths per yr (avg.) This is equivalent to 5.5% of all deaths per yr (on avg).

        The excess deaths in winter are roughly more than 4.5 times (Australia) and 3.75 times (New Zealand) the annual road toll.

        Then there is the Bio-fuel idiocy.
        Over 9 million people die worldwide each year because of hunger and malnutrition. Of those over half are children with 5 million deaths. The food crisis of 2008 drove an additional 100 million people into poverty. Biofuels forced global food prices up by 75%—far more than previously estimated—according to a World Bank report. The USA supplies most of the export corn and a lot of the export grain. Over a third of US corn is now used to produce ethanol; about half of vegetable oils in the EU goes towards the production of biodiesel. (Vegetable oils like Palm Oil that have caused the cutting down of rain forests.)

        These are older graphs but show we are going backwards in providing food despite the fact enough is produced.

  3. Andy DC says:

    The Ice Age in Cincinnati seemingly did begin shortly after 1974, when the absolutely brutal January 1977 hit that city with unprecedented cold, dropping to temperatures to -26 F, with monthly anomalies averaging nearly 20 degrees below normal. The following winters 1978 and 1979 were nearly as cold.

    Climatologist and author David Ludlum said winters 1977, 1978 and 1979 were the three coldest consecutive winters in American history, with major cities Boston, Buffalo and Chicago paralyzed by snow for weeks if not month on end. Snow down to Miami and Homestead. Not bad for a non-existent Ice Age scare! Anyone living through those winters east of Rockies knows just how exceptionally cold and snowy they were!

  4. Griff says:

    Somehow then the shortest melting season produced the second lowest area and extent…

    How do you explain that?

    Its clearly not getting any colder, if in a short season it can remove that much ice…

    • Gail Combs says:

      The Air temperature has ZERO to do with ice melt since about 7/8ths of an iceberg is below the water line. That means the temperature of the water is the critical factor in melting ice.

      The other critical factor is storms and wind direction. The two major sea ice loss years were 2007 and 2012 when a lot of multi-year ice was lost. Storms and wind was the reason and NASA reluctantly admitted it.

      October 3, 2007 on the sea Ice loss

      Just last Monday, NASA was quietly issuing a press release explaining why Arctic sea ice loss was so great this year. (h/t Douglas Hoyt).

      From the release:

      A team led by Son Nghiem of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., studied trends in Arctic perennial ice cover by combining data from NASA’s Quick Scatterometer (QuikScat) satellite with a computing model based on observations of sea ice drift from the International Arctic Buoy Programme. QuikScat can identify and map different classes of sea ice, including older, thicker perennial ice and younger, thinner seasonal ice.

      “Unusual atmospheric conditions set up wind patterns that compressed the sea ice, loaded it into the Transpolar Drift Stream and then sped its flow out of the Arctic,” said Son Nghiem of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and leader of the study. When that sea ice reached lower latitudes, it rapidly melted in the warmer waters.


      Same thing happened again in 2012
      In September of 2012 NASA finally admited it was an Arctic Cyclone and winds that did in the Arctic Sea Ice.
      “The September 18 NASA video notes: “A powerful storm wreaked havoc on the Arctic sea ice cover in August 2012. This visualization shows the strength and direction of the winds and their impact on the ice: the red vectors represent the fastest winds, while blue vectors stand for slower winds.” link

      Back to the sea water temperature. AndyG has stated over and over the Atlantic has been warm because of the phase of the AMO which is just now turning.

      This is what goes on in the Pacific. Remember all the hype about ‘The Blob’ of warm water off Alaska??
