Almost every major climate organization endorsed the 1970s ice age scare, including NCAR, CRU, NAS, NASA – as did the CIA.

In the last decade, the Arctic ice and snow cap has expanded 12 per cent, and for the first time in this century. ships making for Iceland ports have been impeded by drifting ice.

WEATHER: The Big Freeze
Why had the rain turned white? Startled millionaires wintering in their baronial mansions in West Palm Beach, Fla., peered closer last week at the miracle that was falling from the skies and discovered—could it be?—yes, the substance was snow, the first ever reported there. Since mid-November, pedestrians in Dallas, unaccustomed to such hazards, have been slipping on sleet-slicked sidewalks. Meanwhile, a series of blizzards has smothered Buffalo this winter with an astonishing 126.6 in. of snow.

From the Dakotas and Minnesota, across the icy Great Lakes of the Middle West and down…

    For some strange reason, the alarmists like to “debunk” this by saying it was just one article in Time magazine that said an ice age was possibly coming. Seems they’re wrong (again).

  2. rick says:

    IT seems they overfixed global cooling in the seventies.what’s next global medium.

  3. Savannah Guy says:

    What a bunch of self important, puffed up morons we are! We know SO much! In fact, we are lucky to hit the floor with our own hats.

    The same twits who were invested in Left Wing socialist soak-the-rich tax schemes, based on climate change in the ’70s, are at it again. Then, it was Global Cooling, the Second Ice Age, and other drivel. More recently we’ve had Global Warming… oops, none for 16 years… and now Climate Change. Funny how the political prescriptions never change, though. Tax the West, send money to the Third World… blah, blah, blah… and all with a huge pit stop for the money at some endless series of bureaucracies, where it can be, uhm, diverted into God knows what.

    Yep, we are very, very smart.

  4. Bill says:

    Which are the links to the various scientific organizations saying this? Those would be especially damning.

    “Almost every major climate organization endorsed the 1970s ice age scare, including NCAR, CRU, NAS, NASA – as did the CIA.” I did see the CIA one.

  5. Paul M says:

    No, no! The 1970s ice age scare never happened! Comrade Connolley says so, and Comrade Connolley is always right!

  6. Billy Liar says:

    Hubert Lamb got it right. He was just a bit off with his timing …

    the climate may warm up again but only for a short period of decades

    the warming happened quicker than he thought: we’ll see whether the cooling occurs.

  7. J.S. Sawyer of the Met Office published a paper called http://www.fas.harvard.edu/~eps5/writing_assignment/CLIMATE_BKGD/Sawyer_Nature_1972.pdf in Nature in 1972, forecasting global warming of 0.6 degrees C by the year 2000 based on climate modelling by Manabe and Wetherald.

    The actual warming was about 0.5 degrees C – so Sawyer’s forecast of warming in the early 1970s was pretty good, and demonstrated the success of the early climate models.

  8. J.S. Sawyer of the Met Office published a paper called Man-Made Carbon Dioxide and the Greenhouse Effect in Nature in 1972, forecasting global warming of 0.6 degrees C by the year 2000 based on climate modelling by Manabe and Wetherald.

    The actual warming was about 0.5 degrees C – so Sawyer’s forecast of warming in the early 1970s was pretty good, and demonstrated the success of the early climate models.

    • In 1988, James Hansen’s model forecast 1.3C warming by 2010, and demonstrated that climate models are close to useless.

    • Actually I just read the paper Betts linked to and it pretty much perfectly encapsulates the sceptical position. Somewhere between 1.3C – 2.4C of warming for a doubling of CO2. Lack of recent evidence for increases in atmospheric water vapour puts the range closer to 1.3C. Translation: global warming will be minor and therefore most likely a net benefit to the planet.

      The other observation is that this paper from 1972 sounds exactly like the papers I’ve read over the last few years. Or in other words, climatology doesn’t appear to have progressed very much at all in 40 years. :-(

    Interesting paper here, peer reviewed by James Hansen IIRC:

    Schneider S. & Rasool S., “Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide and Aerosols – Effects of Large Increases on Global Climate”, Science, vol.173, 9 July 1971, p.138-141

    We report here on the first results of a calculation in which separate estimates were made of the effects on global temperature of large increases in the amount of CO2 and dust in the atmosphere. It is found that even an increase by a factor of 8 in the amount of CO2, which is highly unlikely in the next several thousand years, will produce an increase in the surface temperature of less than 2 deg. K.

    However, the effect on surface temperature of an increase in the aerosol content of the atmosphere is found to be quite significant. An increase by a factor of 4 in the equilibrium dust concentration in the global atmosphere, which cannot be ruled out as a possibility within the next century, could decrease the mean surface temperature by as much as 3.5 deg. K. If sustained over a period of several years, such a temperature decrease could be sufficient to trigger an ice age!

    same b.s. for global warming scare…it’s always fear about something or other meanwhile the perpetrators of these hoaxes make billions off of the fkn stupid people who believe this non stop bullshit.
