Science 1973 – Glaciers To Cover Long Island

The suspicion that winters are getting colder is no longer merely a suspi­cion among climatologists. Over the last 30 years permanent snow on Baffin Island in Canada has expanded. Pack ice around Iceland in the winter is increasing and becoming a serious hazard to navigation. Warmth-loving armadillos that mi­grated northward in the first half of this century are now retreating southward toward Texas and Oklahoma.

If all indications are correct, worse is yet to come. Judging by what has happened in the past, it may very well get cold enough to allow great glaciers thousands of feet thick to cover North America as far south as Long Island, burying the highest peaks of the White Mountains and Adirondacks.

    But according to our alarmist friends, the 1970’s Ice Age scare never happened and that starting their charts in 1979 is not a cherry pick.

    What about the recent paper (a “discovery” according to Zeller) demonstrating that it is possible to estimate temperature to within 1 degree C on any planet (in our solar system, if I correctly understand it) with only two things: (1) planet’s distance from the sun, and (2) atmospheric pressure at the surface.

    CO2 is treated no differently than the other gases which, of course implies that co2 capability to influence warming (if it ever had any influence) has long since basically diminished to zero.

    The alarmists will likely give this one a serious peer-review post haste.
