Only One Thing Has Changed Since 1977

In 1977, the US had a spectacularly incompetent left wing president. It was cold and snowy in New York.

Everything was identical to the present, except for one thing. In 1977, experts blamed it on global cooling, instead of the current global warming wankers.

    You forgot the pervasive presence of the Internet in the 21st Century. That’s a big change.

    No wonder “Internet Neutrality” is still being pushed–to end Global Warming!

    • Dave N says:

      That’s a pertinent point: I’ll bet there would have been many more on the “bandwagon” had the internet been so prevalent in the mid-late 70’s, and their mindless drivel would be being repeated to haunt them, like it will be in a few years.

    • Robertv says:

      Since 1977 Earth has become a very small place.

    I could, possibly, maybe, sort of, be possible to map the Jet Stream in the middle 1940s by mapping out where Japan’s balloon bombs landed, or were intercepted. It’s just an idea but its the only idea I have just now.

    Mark my words, the time of comeuppance and retribution will come for the pitiful scare mongering Chicken Littles, that target children with there baseless and despicable messages of fear. They will get it good, for their fraudulence and deceptions in pursuit of their elitist political goals that will have devastating economic impacts on billions, leading directly to the death of millions. With economies battered and dreams of a better world.. in tatters because of the extreme political agenda of the Prophets of Doom, their time will come, and they, the left wing elitists and science charlatans will be backed against the wall by the full wrath of billions who have suffered from their greed and stupidity, and I’ll be first in line to put them there.

    • Jason Calley says:

      “pitiful scare mongering Chicken Littles, that target children with there baseless and despicable messages of fear. ”

      That pretty well sums them up. Shame on them. These are the same people who want to raise a generation of children so weak that the kids can’t even play in the park without having an adult to supervise .

      • I. Lou Minotti says:

        You’ll both get a kick out of Selwyn Duke’s American Thinker article from yesterday. A few quotes: “Everything is over-hyped today, from the weather to entertainment to sports to hopey-changey politicians . . . . conditioned as people are to be protected puppets of the state . . . . During my childhood in the early and mid’70s–you know, back when they warned us in elementary school of an impending ice age–we had impressive blizzards . . . . We have become a soft people . . . . Whatever the case, Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore.”

        In addition, we find governors Chris Christie and Mario Cuomo imposing travel bans via executive fiat, including shutting down the subways for our “protection.”

        • Gail Combs says:

          The winning sentence from that article:
          “… the new commandment, “Thou shalt ensconce thy progeny in bubble wrap.””

          I rode a crazy thoroughbred without a helmet, a bike without a helmet, rock climbed without a helmet, back packed in the mountains alone, drove a carriage and pair without a helmet down trails I am not sure I could navigate on foot…..

    Jonova discusses the increasing number of warmist fits of anger and violent threats made against skeptics:

    One outburst from the cliimate loon Professor Corety Bradshaw:

    “My overwhelming emotion is anger; anger that is fuelled not so much by ignorance, but by greed and profiteering at the expense of future generations“, wrote Professor Corety Bradshaw, the director of ecological modeling at the University of Adelaide.

    ”I am not referring to some vague, existential bonding to the future human race; rather, I am speaking as a father of a seven year-old girl who loves animals and nature in general. As a biologist, I see irrefutable evidence every day that human-driven climate disruption will turn out to be one of the main drivers of the Anthropocene mass extinction event now well under way.”

    Yeah right, he sees irrefutable evidence of doom every day. What a bunch of absolute baloney I say.

    Anyway, at Jonova, Roy Hogue commented:

    I have a message for Professor Corety Bradshaw.

    I have never seen the slightest sign of your alarmist predictions coming true. Not a SINGLE ONE HAS COME TRUE. In the meantime I see: the world deteriorating into wanton self indulgence; religious strife so virulent that just to be anything but a believer in one particular brand of Islam should carry a death penalty; back breaking national debt and waste of the hard earned wealth of the productive people spurred on in large part by the global warming that isn’t happening; deterioration of public education into indoctrination; lying government officials; … I could go on and on.

    In March my first grandchild will be born. I fear for his future not because of climate change but because of the insanity I just recited. And frankly, if you don’t like hearing that I think you know where you can go if you want to do something about it. Enough is enough.

    There has been other change…

    • emsnews says:

      Back in 1967 when I took the SAT, few took it. Only 30% of us went to university.

      Now, nearly everyone takes it except for kids in prison, drop outs, etc.

      • NancyG says:

        The graph goes to show that most students shouldn’t be going to university, yet the US government pushes for everyone to go. When did being a blue collar worker become a bad thing? Those are the people that keep our country running, not the white collar elites sitting behind a desk.

        My daughter’s friend was touring colleges and my daughter and I tagged along. This girl’s father told me his other daughter majored in pottery. Pottery? He complained that it wasn’t going to get her a job, yet he paid for her to go. Too many people, both the student and the parents, buy into the everyone needs to go to college meme.

        We were buying a house from a CEO at Bloomingdale’s. He and his wife looked down their noses at us because hubby was a blue collar (multiple) laundromat owner. During a legal dispute over us needing more time because the buyer of our house got delayed in closing we had to submit W2 forms. Hubby made more money than the CEO. I wonder how that made him feel. Moral of the story, you don’t need a college education to make a good living, they just don’t want you to know that. Plus, you don’t start your adult life in debt up to your eyeballs.

        • gator69 says:

          A 2 year degree, and three years experience, can equal a 6 figure income.


          * A trillion dollars in student loans.

          * Record high unemployment.

          * Three million good jobs that no one seems to want.

          The goal of Profoundly Disconnected® is to challenge the absurd belief that a four-year degree is the only path to success. The Skills Gap is here, and if we don’t close it, it’ll swallow us all. Which is a long way of saying, we could use your help…

          I interviewed a woman who earned her 4 year degree in African Dance, all paid for by us. She could not understand why she was unable to find work, and probably still lives off welfare.

      Notice how that coincides with the upswing in teacher’s unions, liberal takeover of curricula and the start of the fed’s starting the Department of Education.

    • annieoakley says:

      I took the test in 1968. I did well but I can read and understand what I read to this day.

  6. philjourdan says:

    The excuses may be different, but the idiots in charge have not changed.

  7. stewart pid says:

    Dang u Tony … I had a 1973 VW Westphalia van like the one in the first photo behind the Hertz truck and had almost purged the memory of the POS from my hard drive and your post brought back all the bad memories!
    The thing was entropy on wheels 😦

  8. emsnews says:

    I was in Park Slope in 1977. Lots and lots of blizzards back then. Endless snow shoveling. We lived near the Flatbush Ave subway entrance and had to shovel out the stairs there so we could commute to work. The city was struggling with bankruptcy so they barely plowed the streets to avoid overtime payments to workers.

  9. nielszoo says:

    Carter was a dream compared to this guy.

    See the next wave in the stratosphere. Its effects will be visible for about a week.
    These waves smash polar vortex.
