    In that article they didn’t seem to carry the end of the world panic. 3-4 decades later scientists were recycling the language with the added panic. Didn’t we get worried about global cooling and the next ice age a quarter century later?

    Oh, I liked the footnote about “White Christmas” going above 6,000,000 sales.

    And today, time to panic because the MSM and the weather channel says so.
    Now the weather channel has a video out which they visibly promote on their home page as Scary Scenario, 2035. Make’s me lol because of all the warmist quotes talking about the need to scare monger, and specifically highlighting the term “scary scenario.”
    “Isn’t the only hope for this planet the total collapse of industrial civilisation?” -Maurice Strong, ex UNEP Director
    “We’ve got to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing.” -leftist Senator Tim Wirth, 1993
    “We have to offer up scary scenarios… each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective and being honest.” -Stephen Schneider, lead ipcc author, 1989
    “It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.” -Paul Watson, Greenpeace
    “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed — and hence clamorous to be led to safety — by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” -H. L. Mencken
    “Unless we announce disasters no one will listen.” -Sir John Houghton, ex ipcc chair
    “The only way to get our society to truly change is to frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe.” -Daniel Botkin, ex Chair of Enironmental Studies, UCSB
    “The life of all mankind is in danger because of global warming .” -Osama Bin Laden
    “Global warming will kill most of us, and turn the rest of us into cannibals.” -Ted Turner
    “It’s global warming. It’s ruining our country. It’s ruining our world.” -Harry Reid, Democrat

    It was recently reported that the North Pole was ‘ice free’ for the first time in history. It was later discovered to be a drifting webcam. Did they have webcams back in the day? 🙂

    New York Times – May 18, 1926
    Lincoln Ellsworth of the Amundsen-Ellsworth transpolar expedition told The Associated Press here today that he saw much open water at the North Pole when he and his sixteen companions passed over it last Tuesday night in the dirigible Norge.

    Edmonton Journal – 29 May 1928
    Reported Open Water Near the North Pole

    Ottawa Citizen – Apr 3, 1969
    North Pole is the goal
    …While the Pole itself doesn’t move, the ice above it does – sometimes there is open water at the site and hitting the exact loca-tion is no easy chore….

      Then in 2000 the ‘unthinkable’ happened……..again. Apparently it’s not unusual according to the NOAA.

      New York Times – 29 August 2000
      Correction: August 29, 2000, Tuesday A front-page article on Aug. 19 and a brief report on Aug. 20 in The Week in Review about the sighting of open water at the North Pole misstated the normal conditions of the sea ice there. A clear spot has probably opened at the pole before, scientists say, because about 10 percent of the Arctic Ocean is clear of ice in a typical summer. The reports also referred incompletely to the link between the open water and global warming. The lack of ice at the pole is not necessarily related to global warming.

      Common Dreams – 4 September 2000
      Climate Change Has The World Skating On Thin Ice
      by Lester R. Brown

      “If any explorers had been hiking to the North Pole this summer, they would have had to swim the last few miles. The discovery of open water at the Pole by an ice-breaker cruise ship in mid August surprised many in the scientific community.”
      NOAA Faqs – found 18 November 2013
      10. Is it true that the North Pole is now water?
      Recently there have been newspaper articles describing the existence of open water at the North Pole. This situation is infrequent but has been known to occur as the ice is shifted around by winds. In itself, this observation is not meaningful.
