The Government Knew

In 1941 the US government explained why increasing levels of CO2 would not have a significant impact on the climate.

“IT WILL be news to many people that man, during his geo- logically brief existence on earth, has never known a “normal” climate. We are now at the tail end of an ice age and living in a period of crustal and climatic violence as great as any the earth has known. This is why we have to think so much about the weather. Such periods of revolution have occurred briefly several times in the history of the earth.”

“Much has been written about varying amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere as a possible cause of glacial periods. The theory received a fatal blow when it was realized that carbon dioxide is very selective as to the wave lengths of radiant energy it will absorb, filtering nut only such waves as even very minute quantities of water vapor dispose of anyway. No probable Increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide could materially affect either the amount of insolation reaching the surface or the amount of terrestrial radiation lost to space.

    Better save that bulletin. It’ll be gone tomorrow.

    A lot of common sense and knowledge has been destroyed to pave the way for the NWO .

    Great info! Thanks!

    Yeah they knew. I learned this in college in the late 70s. My engineering sciences teacher taught us the truth, and told us to ignore all the ice age talk at the time. Unfortunately we are dealing with a totally corrupt and ignorant media.
    The good news is for a time today, the Twitter lords couldn’t keep up with the vaccine injury trend, but I just heard they are considering suspending MTG again for saying the word IVERMECTIN

    • For thirty years scientific knowledge has been denigrated in the popular media as ‘uncool’. Technical pig ignorance and new age crystal waving crap were the order of the day. Why is it surprising that the general public has fallen prey to charlatans?

    There are many modern studies which give 0.5-0.6°C warming for doubling CO2 levels.
    This new paper suggests 0.7°C cooling by 2100, by greening driven by the higher CO2 levels.

    • This reminds me of the ‘Daisy World’ model of James Lovelock, where cooling of the planet encouraged more absorbant vegetation in order to get the energy needed to survive, and heating would lead to less absorption. This provided an overall temperature regulation by varying the albedo. I suspect they had to relate this particular paper to ‘global warming’ to get the funds, but I’m not sure the sponsors will be happy with the result.

    Never ceases to amaze me the amount of historical data revealed on this website.
