1977 – National Geographic Blamed Identical Weather On Global Cooling

In 1977, National Geographic blamed an almost identical weather pattern as 2015 – on global cooling.

They could have recycled the identical article this year, and replaced the word cooling with warming.

    I remember great snowmobiling here (central maine) from about 11-1976 to 3-1978.
    we used to go out a few times a week to visit family 30 miles (by trail) away and it was good machine weather.

    • dmacleo says:

      that should be 11-1976 to 3-1977 and 11-1977 to 3-1978
      we generally stored the machines in spring and summer.
      the air cooled ones were never really good at grass drags like I used to do in mid 1990’s.

    • Yep, 2015 has been Identical to 1977…. amazing…

      Except our Highly Paid and High IQ Scientists now blame heat and CO2 for the cold ….

    This is a fantastic post.

    Fred Singer has been exploring the idea of preparing for global cooling. He’s not exactly predicting it, but he’s suggesting that we should investigate climate engineering technologies. Here’s his latest.

      Fred will never make a Climate Scientist – he shoots himself in the foot with the statement “Obviously, all predictions must be validated by direct observations.” The very idea! /sarc off

  4. These studies may be true! But we must be realistic. Measuring devices are now so advanced and precise. We see that air pollution is much more. In the same time global warming has accelerated. So we have to adapt our current knowledge. We have the right to decide for the future.
    I have tried to help the world and I am successful in my research:
    The latest research achievements of water science:
    Discover a new scientific formula of water (Answer of the most difficult question of global hydropower):
    Do not worry because new formula discover can solve the world environment problems (E>P+1at). The use of oil and gas has ended really! This new formula works with its new method (Immersion Turbines in depth of sea water in zero resultant forces). Thus in power generation, water does not exit from the dams! This is a new industrial revolution in the world. All the scientists in the world are in the shock now. With this great discovery will solve the problem of global warming too. It is a scientific fact. I found the answer a question of science that hundreds of years, scientists are looking for answers. Now the time has come to say that we could find a new theory to produce clean energy more powerful than atomic energy:
    Which one is better now (E=mc^2) or (E>P+1at)?!
    (E=mc^2) in physics
    (E>P+1at) in hydropower
    I could prove that (E>P+1at) is very better than (E=mc^2).
    The answer is very simple. You can investigate and judge.
    Today is the end time of two world wars: 1- Energy world war 2- Climate change world war. The global hardest hydropower question was answered and amazing effect on the climate change! The global hydropower hardest question is: How to get the energy potential of the water level weight in dams and seas? The most advanced answer: The scientific use of the formula (E > P+1at) and the most advanced new method of producing electricity from immersion turbines in depth of seas and oceans water. With amazing discover of a new clean energy formula in depth of water (E>P+1at). The immersion turbine method in depth of sea water is the base of this new model. This invention can change the world and it can start a new industrial revolution in the world. Many scientists believe that the discovery of the formula is unparalleled. Although many still in shock! How this formula has not be discovered by scientists in the world. The project titled (Kurdestan and US clean energy coordination) runs in cooperation with the United States introduced. Of course, this beautiful project after the National Hydropower Association 2015 conference is done in the United States. This invention is patented in Department of Justice in Kurdestan of Iraq No. 952/6 on 12/6/2013. Now all countries can benefit from that if they are Kurdestan partners and businesses in this new clean energy method. You can read the articles of (Change the world with Kurdistan’s industrial revolution) and (A Kurdish inventor has found a new method for electricity production under water).
    Thank you

    I remember that year well. One big difference in the winter this year stands out. Florida did not get the terrible cold in 2015, the fronts hardly made it to Florida.

    I agree, fantastic post.

    The weather is about to get wilder. SNOW threatens the Tour of California cycling race. Southern CA, Mid May, Snow. And not just a little…8 to 12 in. Well I didn’t see that coming.


  9. The article quotes George Kukla, a sharp scientist.

    Snow has forced the Tour of California to officially relocate Stage 6:
