1871 : New York Times Terrified About Climate Change


But at least one newspaper got it right in 1871. The Brisbane Courier recognized that belief in “climate change” reflected nothing other than human stupidity.

We have often noticed that in the tabular statements of those compilers of weather records who write to the Times, useful and welcome as their communications are, every season is sure to be “extraordinary,” almost every month one of the driest or wettest, or windiest, coldest or hottest, ever known. Much observation, which ought to correct a tendency to exaggerate, seems in some minds to have rather a tendency to increase it.

10 Jan 1871 – IMAGINARY CHANGES OF CLIMATE. (Pall Mall Gazette.)

Nothing has changed, other than the fact that the climate change stupidity has propagated to the highest levels of the autocracy.

    Slightly O/T: take a look at the Antarctic ice at 20°E longitude – it’s far enough north to touch Cape Horn (if it were at the same longitude). The ice edge (at 20°E) is ~850 nm from the land (nearly 1,000 miles). Half the South Sandwich islands appear to be in the Antarctic ice. I wonder how often that happens? Perhaps it really is unprecedented.

    Perhaps some of these old newspaper stories should be sent to various newspapers of today – it might wake a few of them up. Oh, wait. No, they already know it’s not true, don’t they. I forgot.

    FYI: Brisbane in Aussie is pronounced “Brisbn”. Unusually, I wasn’t the cause of this.
