“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”
- George Orwell 1984
Scientific American claims that the 1970’s global cooling scare consisted of nine paragraphs in Newsweek in 1975.
The Scientific American claim is rather incredible, given that the Newsweek article referenced specific people at NOAA, The National Academy of Sciences, and used temperature data from NCAR.
I could write an entire book of references to the 1970’s global cooling scare, but here are a few highlights. In 1972, “42 top American and European investigators” from the National Science Foundation wrote a letter to President Nixon warning of a new ice age within a century.
NCAR’s top people were warning of global cooling.
Obama’s future science adviser warned of a new ice age.
NASA’s top climatologist warned of a new ice age.
Front Page of the New York Times, July 18, 1970. US and Soviet scientists were worried about Arctic cooling and expanding Arctic ice, and wanted to melt the Arctic by spreading coal dust on it.
The National Academy of Sciences wanted to relocate six million people to save them from drought caused by global cooling.
In 1978, an international team of specialists saw no end in sight to the cooling.
The report, prepared by German, Japanese and American specialists, appears in the Dec. 15 issue of Nature, the British journal.
In 1961, there was unanimous consensus among scientists that earth was cooling.
The National Academy of Sciences showed the cooling, and warned that it could be serious within a century.
NCAR showed the cooling, and blamed drought, floods, blizzards, tornadoes and hurricanes on it.
NASA has since (quite predictably) erased the cooling.
The list above is just barely scratching the surface. As I mentioned, I could write an entire book on this topic.
Organizations which depend financially on global warming alarmism (like NASA and Scientific American) have ramped up their lies and fraud to a level which was supposed to be fictional in Orwell’s novel 1984.
