1970 : US And Soviet Union Worried About A New Ice Age

“The United States and the Soviet Union are mounting large-scale investigations to determine why the Arctic climate is becoming more frigid, why parts of the Arctic sea ice have recently become ominously thicker and whether the extent of that ice cover contributes to the onset of ice ages.”

    Young people were actually fearful for the future back then. Now the young people fear the heat and wear masks.

    I attended the first Earth Day in 1969. The topic was the new ice age.

    Now, the present collection of hand wringing muppets don’t believe anyone but a tiny few “conspiracy theorists” believed man-made global cooling was even a thing. That’s how successful the AGW disinformation brigade are.

      I don’t remember any of the Global Cooling Alarmists saying the cooling between the 1940s and the 1970s was caused by man. I’m sure there were some who said it was our fault, but I don’t remember any.

    Back in the mid-1950s my second grade class was taken to the Franklin Institute’s Fells Planetarium, a popular annual outing in suburban Philadelphia. The program on this visit was about the “coming ice age….” complete with a reporter in a small boat off the Florida coast describing the ice bergs surrounding him. He is cut off mid-sentence as his boat is crushed between two ice bergs. As a child watching this, I was terrified, but I was also inspired to study the actual science of such things.
