Orwellian Class Fraud At Scientific American

“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.

How the “Global Cooling” Story Came to Be – Scientific American

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.

Newsweek April 28, 1975

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.

NOAA Powerpoint  Slide 6

NCAR’s top people were warning of global cooling.

12 Jun 1974, Page 20 – at Newspapers.com

Obama’s future science adviser warned of  a new ice age.

Global ecology : readings toward a rational strategy for man / edited by John P. Holdren, Paul R. Eh… | National Library of Australia

NASA’s top climatologist warned of a new ice age.

U.S. Scientist Sees New Ice Age Coming

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.

U.S. and Soviet Press Studies of a Colder Arctic – The New York Times

The National Academy of Sciences wanted to relocate six million people to save them from drought caused by global cooling.

TimesMachine: December 29, 1974 – NYTimes.com

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.

International Team of Specialists Finds No End in Sight to 30‐Year Cooling Trend in Northern Hemisphere – The New York Times

In 1961, there was unanimous consensus among scientists that earth was cooling.

January 30, 1961 – NYTimes

The National Academy of Sciences showed the cooling, and warned that it could be serious within a century.

1975 National Academy Of Sciences Report

NCAR showed the cooling, and blamed drought, floods, blizzards, tornadoes and hurricanes on it.

21 Jul 1974, Page 13 – The Des Moines Register at Newspapers.com

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.

    I’m banned from posting over at “Scientific American” otherwise I’d link to some of your stuff in their comments section. I’m banned from “National Geographic” too.

    • AZ1971 says:

      Wear those bans with pride.

    • Shaun says:

      That is hilarious! … I think AZ1971 nailed it.. Wear with pride!

    • Graydon Tranquilla says:

      New, younger management at both National Geographic and Scientific American sets the agenda for all their staff……. same thing happened at Enron…… and look how that turned out…

    • Jason Nichols says:

      I’m not banned on either and I post quite frequently about how the so called “science” behind any attribution claims related to global warming is flawed. The truth is they could be right. They could be wrong. There IS a warming trend but the causes, and whether or not it will last are still more than debatable. Science follows the rules of logic. Consensus, even we it to truly exist, is not an indicator of correctness and correlation is not an indicator of causality. I have been saying this frequently and am still able to comment on articles. Could it be that you were combative, boat, or otherwise in violation of the TOS for the comments section?

      • tonyheller says:

        Fake warming trend. Capital letters don’t change that.

      • gator69 says:

        I have been banned from sites simply for asking inconvenient questions. I once had a warmist tell me that RealClimate would not ban people for asking legitimate questions. So I gave him a question to ask, he then edited the question to make it as warmist-friendly and Emily Post polite as possible, and posted it as a known warmist. He said he thought it was a reasonable and good question. The comment was bore holed.

  2. JMS Martins says:

    I can testify that what Tony Heller here presents was true!
    I finished university in 1973 in Portugal (then, not a scientifically advanced country). Global cooling was one of the main topics discussed at our courses of ecology, plant and animal physiology, etc. Of course they were presented in a scientific, elevated mood, with no hysteria. In those days, no one wondered what such a thing as a “NGO” would be (there were some, with long traditions, usually concerned and well informed institutions of the civil society).
    In those days, I read Scientific American at the library of the embassy of the USA in Lisbon (thank you older folks, the taxes you payed helped many of us in our studies). Latter, I was a subscriber. And then Scientific American started its campaigns of advocacy of several non-scientific “trends” that came about. It lost its tradition of good, reliable information; it forgot its more than century old roots. And it lost my subscription, and myself as a reader.

  3. kyle_fouro says:

    Doesn’t the insistence that “most scientists” predicted warming essentially debunk the whole “Exxon knew” campaign?

  4. Rob says:

    This is one of the main reasons why I don’t buy into the stuff they are peddling since they were wrong then about what they were saying regarding the doom and gloom so why in the hell would I believe these people now? If people show me they have no idea what the hell they are talking about then what they are saying becomes useless to me. I’m also not big on people trying to claim the exact opposite results of something as they do with first global cooling from increased CO2 and now warming.

    The other main reason why I don’t believe this stuff is the fact data has been adjusted and it isn’t even the fact it has been adjusted to favour the narrative they are pushing now. No, it’s simply the mere fact of adjusting data which to me says the data is questionable or the people behind it are incompetent. If older data “needs” to be adjusted then who is to say recent data won’t need to be as well.

    I take all charts and data regarding older temperature readings with a huge grain of salt regardless if they show warming, cooling, or no change.

    • Luis says:

      I agree with you, my reason was that Co2 is a trace gas with 99.96% being other gases. Logic tells me it can’t be a significant effect on our climate. Also, most of the thermal energy is stored in water and water vapor is several times more a greenhouse gas.

  5. Kris Johanson says:

    How would you even cover the arctic or Greenland with coal? Think about the logistics of that. Pfffftt

    Dear Mr. President, we hate everything you stand for, being Republican and all… But please put us in charge of the next Manhattan Project because otherwise we’ll sit here languishing in our puny insignificance at Brown U.

  6. AZ1971 says:

    The most interesting part of climate change/global warming revolves around HOW the world moves from a period of warmth and stability to one of an ice age. No one ever talks about the mechanism of how that’s possible … well, almost no one:

    Among the hypotheses to be assessed is one that attributes ice ages to the absence of pack ice on the Arctic Ocean. Winds off that ocean are very dry and drop little snow on Northern lands, but if the sea were open the snows would be heavy and ice sheets would begin to form, the hypothesis holds.

    Such an idea assumes that the ocean, once free of ice, would not soon freeze again. At present, the brilliant snow surface of the pack reflects much solar energy back into space. If the ocean were ice free, it is argued, this would not occur, and the water would warm up enough to prevent refreezing.

    Given the rhetoric of impending doom resulting from an ice-free Arctic, it’s interesting to postulate whether or not scientists have given this old theory any new life. Since snowfall on land cannot be melted from underneath (like open ice packs can) at what point would sufficient snow build up to cause a higher albedo and self-sustaining feedback?

    No one talks about this. No one talks about how much of a lie the “official” global temperature record is, because they’re attempting to draw a direction 1:1 line between increasing atmospheric CO2 content and the temperature. It’s not even an accurate prediction, because CO2 follows a logarithmic curve and the vast majority of its GHG effect occurs as the result of the first 20 ppm content.

    I would love to see today’s scientists give some thought to how a new ice age would begin, the mechanism(s) by which the change-over to a colder planet would take place, and whether or not it has anything to do with CO2.

    • Douglas Hoyt says:

      I think the first sign that an ice age is coming soon will be seen on Baffin Island where it will become snow covered all summer long. The snow will not melt over the entire summer. This will increase the albedo and the regional cooling there will expand, perhaps pushing us into an ice age in as little as 10 years. The 10 year figure comes from some beetle studies in England where the warm weather beetles disappeared very quickly.

    • Snowleopard says:

      While I agree, I would say that the reverse problem is even more interesting. Where do the kilocalories necessary to melt a 1-2 mile high ice sheet that stretches over thousands of square miles come from? How does this happen in a few centuries?

      So we do not know how an “natural” ice age starts, we know even less about how one ends, but governments, building on this ignorance, have more than half the world convinced that man caused warming is ahead

      • Snowleopard says:

        If we cannot understand and predict the course of the current ~100Kyr ice age climate cycle, how is it possible to define the effects of man (if any) in altering it. Obviously it is not.

  8. GW Smith says:

    More great content, Tony! Thanks! You’re the man!

  9. Ulric Lyons says:

    The 1970’s cooling was mainly down to stronger-hotter solar wind driving a colder AMO & Arctic, and driving a multi-year La Nina, by increasing positive North Atlantic Oscillation states. The reverse has occurred since the mid 1990’s with declining solar wind strength increasing negative NAO, driving a warm AMO and Arctic.

    Tony, write that book. Please. Personally I remember the 70’s cooling scare.

  11. Andy DC says:

    The “normal” January temperature in DC dropped nearly 2 degrees between 1961 and 1981, so the cooling was not exactly imaginary.

  12. Henk van der Wilt says:

    Personally I am shocked that people in the field of history are so laid back these days. All around us they are trying to lie and cheat and change history itself. Would that not make those people that call themselves historians obsolete?

    So many sources available, I think one book would not do it justice Tony. This could be a whole encyclopedia !! Great work as usual in exposing the truth!

  13. TA says:

    A “tour de force” on Global Cooling, Tony.

    I’ll put this post in my collection.

    Scientific American of today is trying to rewrite history. So does Wikileaks on this subject. It’s amazing how a pack of lies can spread so widely. I guess religious zealots will do anything to sell the CAGW Lie.

    I lived through the Global Cooling era. There is no doubt the scientists of that day were just as sure human-caused Global Cooling was occurring as they are today about human-caused Global Warming.

    They were wrong then and it looks like they might be wrong today, too. They certainly don’t have any evidence to back up their claims other than a bogus, bastardized Hockey Stick chart. It’s the only thing they can point to and it’s a Big Lie. A proven lie.

    You are doing a good job of holding their feet to the fire, Tony.

    Well, when the Global Warming crisis finally fizzles out, I imagine they will explain it the same way:

    Tony, Exxon NEEDS your help, and you are worth a fortune to Exxon. This collection of articles devastates the claim by the NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and a few other AGS that Exxon KNEW about man-made global warming in the 1970s or 1980s. The articles reveal many scientists at that time agreed man was COOLING the earth via soot from burning hydrocarbons, dust from farming, aerosols and other substances.

  19. JerryC says:

    It’s in no way credible that an issue like global cooling would be covered prominently by Newsweek and only Newsweek. All weekly magazines like Time and Newsweek ever did was summarize the conventional wisdom, and they didn’t (and don’t) write stories on topics that hadn’t already been covered extensively by more specialized publications.

      …. you have to either be TOTALLY GULLIBLE and NÁIVE.

      probably read the Guardian and think it is unbiased fact ???? DOH

      …. or deep on the climate trough, to go into that sewer.

      Let me guess, some sort of low-end entrepreneur/climate con-artist.

      William Connelly? Really? The man banned from Wikipedia?

      i>In a vote of 7-0, The most prolific climate revisionist editor ever at Wikipedia, with over 5400 article revisions has been banned from making any edits about climate related articles for six months.

      Good God, how bad a “climate warrior” must you be to get banned from Wiki? LOL

      ”It would be a shame to discuss a topic and cherry pick only evidence that supports one point of view.”

      Well, of course, Andy, but you can’t get away with dumb platitudes like this.

      State your claim. Are you saying that the evidential record of the 1970’s global cooling scare is fabricated and based on only nine paragraphs in a 1975 magazine article as claimed by Scientific American? Do you have anything to say about the evidence presented by Tony Heller?

    • sunsettommy says:

      Andy Ferrell,

      William Connolly manage to miss HUNDREDS of science papers discussing the cooling trend,which was OBVIOUS in those days. His presentation is a LIE!

      I posted the links to them earlier in the thread,you didn’t look in them?

      285 Papers 70s Cooling 1

      https://realclimatescience.com/2017/10/orwellian-class-fraud-at-scientific-american/#comment-68328

      How could you miss my first paragraph?

      “There are HUNDREDS of published science papers too about the Cooling and ice balances:”

    • sunsettommy says:

      Andy Ferrell, you didn’t offer any counter to Tony’s presentation at all, just a boring claim of cherrypicking,which is bogus.

      It is clear you can’t dispute what Tony posted.

    • Bart says:

      That American Meteorological study used a grand total of only 71 papers over 15 years. That’s less than 5 per year. Sounds like cherry picking.

      And on the third page it admits there was a consensus:

      “..By the early 1970s, when Mitchell updated his work (Mitchell 1972), the notion of a global cooling trend was widely accepted…”

    Short-term trends don’t really mean much. I do know that I was climbing mountains in the 1970s in Canada where I had to walk 8 miles from the road over ground covered by glaciers in 1904. And glaciers everywhere only continue to recede. In the Himalaya there are long valleys with new vegetation moving in which into the last century were filled with ice.
