Climatologists Recycling The Same BS From 35 Years Ago

In 1974, Steven Schneider was busy trying to convince Nixon that global cooling was going to kill us all. But then he realized the big money was in global warming (rather than cooling) and by 1979 was peddling the identical WAIS collapse theory which was being recycled by scientists last week.

Just three years earlier, Schneider was still upset that the White House had ignored his global cooling hysteria.

    It looks like Holdren might have been first to start the conversion, in 1974. Lamb followed in 1976, and Schneider not long after.

    All prior ice-age alarmists, converted to the CAGW religion, where there’s far more money to be had.

      Which shows it was all about politics and money and not about science.

      We are at the tail end of the Holocene and there is nothing that says we will not descend into glaciation in a decade, a century, or a thousand years from now. But one thing is for darn certain even if we miss the glaciation bullet and have an extended Holocene – and that hope is now vanishingly small after the Lisiecki and Raymo’s 2005 rebuttal of the Loutre and Berger’s 2003 astronomical model – We are still looking at colder weather for the next several thousand years. The solar insolation is just not there to keep the earth warm until the earth heads for the next climate optimum. No matter what the Climastrologists say CO2 can not manufacture energy it can only reflect energy that fell on to the earth from the sun in the first place. (Interesting how that point is never mentioned.)

      Solar energy reached a summer maximum (9% higher than at present) ~11 ka ago and has been decreasing since then, primarily in response to the precession of the equinoxes. The extra energy elevated early Holocene summer temperatures throughout the Arctic 1-3°C above 20th century averages

      Five of the six interglacials dating back to the Mid Pleistocene Transition have each lasted just half of a precessional cycle and the Little Ice Age was the Holocene’s half of a precessional cycle mark.

      If Ilya G. Usoskin of the Sodankyl Geophysical Observatory (Oulu unit) is correct it was a Solar Grand Maximum link that probably pulled the earth out of glacial inception. The Modern Warm Period, reportedly less warm then the Medieval Warm Period, marks the second thermal pulse, a few centuries older than half a precession cycle. In the closest analog to the Holocene, the second half of MIS-11, there were two thermal pulses before glacial inception.

      I am sure the elite are well aware of all of this and have decided to strip the wealth from western civilization and head for warmer climes while leaving the rest of us as ill prepared as possible. Death by famine has always been a favorite method for getting rid of excess population.

      Note the timing of the transition in the USA.
      1. We went from 25 percent of the labor force in manufacturing in 1970 to less than 9% in 2010.
      2. We went from the next generation always being more wealthy than the last to the baby boomer being the first generation of Americans being poorer than their parents.
      3. In the 1980s the Corporate Raider/Leveraged Buyout feeding frenzy stripped most mid sized US corporations of their wealth and left formerly debt free corporations saddled with crushing debt. Most are now gone and so are the jobs they created.

      Statistics (courtesy of Bridgewater) showed in 1990, foreign ownership of U.S. assets amounted to 33% of U.S. GDP. By 2002 this had increased to over 70% of U.S. GDP. http://www.fame.org/HTM/greg%20Pickup%201%2010%2003%20report.htm

    Thank you, Steven, for having the courage to “speak the truth bluntly.”

    Many AGW skeptics cannot grasp that public deception became the primary goal of government research agencies after WWII.

  3. Billy Liar says:

    The WAIS is collapsing so fast it will be entirely gone by the time the sun becomes a red giant. I’m at least 97% sure of that.
