New York Times : Debate Was Over By 1979

The New York Times says global warming was settled science and beyond debate by the late 1970’s – based on data collected during the prior thirty years.

Nearly everything we understand about global warming was understood in 1979. By that year, data collected since 1957 confirmed what had been known since before the turn of the 20th century: Human beings have altered Earth’s atmosphere through the indiscriminate burning of fossil fuels. The main scientific questions were settled beyond debate.

    Before kick-off at 18:00 on Saturday temperatures pitchside showed -14.9C (5.18F), which was agonizingly short of the -15C limit which means teams have the right to cancel matches, TASS reports.

    The windchill factor reportedly made the actual temperature feel as low as -25C, as heavily-padded players braved the cold to play out a 1-1 draw.

    ‘Nearly everything we understand about global warming was understood in 1979. By that year, data collected since 1957 confirmed what had been known since before the turn of the 20th century’

    That is preposterous. Before satellite measurement began in 1979, there was no comprehensive data.

    ‘This narrative by Nathaniel Rich is a work of history, addressing the 10-year period from 1979 to 1989: the decisive decade when humankind first came to a broad understanding of the causes and dangers of climate change.’

    Alternative history.

    Nathaniel Rich is a trained parrot:

    “Dangers of climate change, dangers of climate change.”
