At one time, there was unanimous consensus for global cooling after 1940.
SCIENTISTS AGREE WORLD IS COLDER – But Climate Experts Meeting Here Fail to Agree on Reasons for Change – View Article – NYTimes.com
Glaciers were growing during that time, after receding for the previous 200 years.
GISS showed some of this cooling in their 1997 temperature data. But it didn’t fit the narrative, so they later simply eliminated it.
This is also useful to demonstrate what Hansen claimed was the beginnings of global warming in his 1981 paper, where he pointed to 15 years of temperature increases from 1965 to 1980. Hansen, true to his world view, cherry-picked the Agung volcanic eruption temperature dip as the start of his dead-certain man-made temperature increase.
Steve it also looks like you may have found the “pivot point somewhere around 1960” Seems every year except 1964 moves in that adjustment.
This is how progressives operate. Because history does not support their narrative, they are constantly rewriting it, and filling kids heads with nonsense. Progressives know that when the generation that lived the true history dies, they will own the past.
Progressive/Liberal new codes word for fascism. Fascism is state/cult control of everything. Globaloneywarmtarding is no different. They will have Winston Smith rewrite climate history, until the last ice age disappears….
Anthony Watts site WUWT just went down.
Don’t panic Gail, it’s there. We’re good…
New South Wales government just poked IPCC alarmist agenda right in the eye.
Shock News: Australia having “unprecedented lowest frequency of Cyclones since End of the Roman Empire!
Alarmists said we were gonna have more and bigger cyclones and now they say we are gonna have less cyclones. This just after two of the wettest La nina’s hit Eastern Australia. It’s obvious that ANY weather is exaggerated by Alarmists as evidence supporting their religious dogma.
So far we have had just a taste, but what the heck are the alarmists going to do when cycle 24 ends and the SHTF big time as the Polar Express hits repeatedly and with a vengeance?
By 2015 they will be retiring at least 10% of our coal fired generation, most in the mid-Atlantic states. The Democrats have ‘bought’ a lot of votes by robbing Peter to pay Paul but most of those ‘Pauls are not brainwashed hardcore leftists, just opportunists and are going to be madder than wet hens when they are treated like the UK pensioners.
Oh, that is what all the DHS ammo is for, I forgot.
It is not going to be the conservative “fruit cake” survival types who are going to be the problem. If the electricity and food run out or even if the cost just spike I do not want to be any where near a city.
Perhaps it is time to start handing out the addresses of certain university profs to the inner city types /sarc
It’s funny how much resistance there is to the idea global cooling was a mainstream scientific idea in the 1970s. Of course, if the IPCC estimates fall any further (the confidence intervals now bottom out at .3 degrees by 2100, down from 1.1 in 2001) the possibility of global cooling will triumphantly rejoin the mainstream in the next IPCC report.
I’ve come to realize there are basically two flavors of people who believe the CAGW hype:
1) Gaia cultists who care more about driving the policy than good science
2) Gullible fools who get all of their information from #1
Most leading climate scientists are G1, most science reporters are G2. Sadly, schools just don’t teach intellectual honesty and rigorous scientific skepticism anymore.
