Climate Alarmists Have Been Wrong About Virtually Everything

Alex Newman — New American — January 8, 2016

The 1975 Newsweek article entitled “The Cooling World,” which claimed Earth’s temperature had been plunging for decades due to humanity’s activities, opens as follows:

There are ominous signs that the Earth’s weather patterns have begun to change dramatically and that these changes may portend a drastic decline in food production — with serious political implications for just about every nation on Earth. The drop in food output could begin quite soon, perhaps only 10 years from now. The regions destined to feel its impact are the great wheat-producing lands of Canada and the U.S.S.R. in the North, along with a number of marginally self-sufficient tropical areas — parts of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indochina and Indonesia — where the growing season is dependent upon the rains brought by the monsoon.

The evidence in support of these predictions has now begun to accumulate so massively that meteor­ologists are hard-pressed to keep up with it. In England, farmers have seen their growing season decline by about two weeks since 1950, with a resultant overall loss in grain production estimated at up to 100,000 tons annually.

The article quotes dire statistics from the National Academy of Sciences, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Center for Climatic and Environmental Assessment, Columbia University, and the University of Wisconsin Madison to indicate how dire the global cooling was, and would be.

Experts suggested grandiose schemes to alleviate the problems, including “melting the arctic ice cap by covering it with black soot or diverting arctic rivers,” Newsweek reported. It added, “The longer the planners delay, the more difficult will they find it to cope with climatic change once the results become grim reality.” Sound familiar — except that the “climate change” alarmists were warning against global cooling?

For decades, climate alarmists have been warning that, without a United Nations-run global “climate” regime to control human activity, alleged man-made “climate change” will bring the wrath of “Mother Earth” down upon humanity.  Continue reading here….

    I know it is dangerous to venture into this pissing contest, but the “sky” is not “falling”. Although you green mavins refuse to read what other (that is non-“Climatologists”) scientists have to say about the history and geology of the planet, the facts suggest that the “hockey stick” model of Prof. Michael Mann is a fiction, and that the trace gas, CO2 drives nothing, least of all world temperature increase. I know that if you continue to shout your mantra of climate alarmism, a lot of people will start to believe it. The tragedy in this is that they are all being made to pay for this folly.

      The belief in AGW has become a religion. It follows the template of almost every other religion known to man, which includes: doomsday predictions, apocalyptic scenarios, guilt, shame, sin, tithing (carbon fees and taxes), blind faith and ridicule of non-believers. The zealots of this new world ideology believe that theirs is the one-true religion and dissension is not to be tolerated.
