Yes there was a Global Cooling Scare

Timothy Birdnow

Global Warmists dismiss those of us who remember the "Global Cooling" panic of the 1970's as silly. They claim there was just one artiice - a Newsweek story, and that was it.  They are dead wrong.

Take a look at this, courtesy of Helen Dyer

1845 – The whole of Sir John Franklin’s expedition to find the NW Passage died and their ships were crushed by the ice near Baffin Island
1909-1910 – Amundsen sailed an ice free NW Passage
1922 – The Arctic is warming and fishermen are catching species that have never been seen there before. Yawn
1970 – Kenneth Field "The world is cooling and global temperatures could drop by up to 11C that would freeze the North Atlantic for 4- months of the year within 20-years …”

2009 – CLIMATEGATE EMAILS!!
2013 – Who can forget Prophessor Turney of Sydney and the Oz ‘Ship of Fools’ icebound after predicting no ice (makes one proud to be Australian, dun’it?) http://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/12/30/the-antarctic-research-fiasco-would-you-could-you-in-a-boat/

2013 – In 2000, scientists at perhaps the world’s centre of global warming alarmism issued this prediction:

According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, within a few years winter snowfall will become "a very rare and exciting event”.

”Children just aren’t going to know what snow is<http://blogs.news.com.au/heraldsun/andrewbolt/index.php/heraldsun/comments/i_dont_think_the_warmists_models_are_working/>,” he said.

It’s now 2013 - which surely must now qualify as "within a few years”.

Russia:<http://rt.com/news/winter-snow-russia-weather-275/>

On Friday, Moscow was on a verge of traffic collapse as more than 10 inches of snow fell on the city<http://rt.com/news/winter-snow-russia-weather-275/>,which is more than half of January’s average… In the Altai Republic in Western Siberia, 12 Russian settlements were isolated because of the snowstorm…

In the end of 2012, Russia saw extreme winter not witnessed since 1938. The coldest-ever December in Russia led to the evacuation of hundreds of people in Siberia, where temperatures fell below -50 degrees Celsius; Moscow also saw its coldest night ever for the season.

Britain:<http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jan/20/snow-britain-big-freeze>

Snow is expected to blanket the UK for the next week, with no end to the freezing conditions in sight.

Europe:<http://www.dw.de/snow-and-security-crew-strike-delay-european-flights/a-16532585>

Snowfalls across western Europe have disrupted travel plans, with cancellations and closures at some major airports.

I really don’t think global warming is working out as the experts predicted.

Subject: 120 Years Of Climate Scares And Progressive Scams...



120 years of climate scares – no kidding, people are stupid! And gullible…
By Thomas Lifson
Scientists seeking funding and journalists seeking an audience agree: panic sells.
"Global cooling is going to kills us all!” "No, wait: global warming is going to kill us all!”
All that’s missing is a back-and-forth of "You shut up!” "No, you shut up!” That is reserved for those who doubt the need for panic.
That’s the gist of an amazing chronology of the last 120 years of scare-mongering on climate, assembled by butnowyouknow.net<http://butnowyouknow.net/those-who-fail-to-learn-from-history/climate-change-timeline/> and reprinted by the estimable James Watt in Wattsupwiththat<http://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/07/29/a-brief-history-of-climate-panic-and-crisis-both-warming-and-cooling/>, who updates it to the present.

· 1969 – "If I were a gambler, I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000? — Paul Ehrlich (while he now predicts doom from global warming, this quote only gets honorable mention, as he was talking about his crazy fear of overpopulation)

· 1981 - Global Warming – "of an almost unprecedented magnitude” – New York Times
· 1988 - I would like to draw three main conclusions. Number one, the earth is warmer in 1988 than at any time in the history of instrumental measurements. Number two, the global warming is now large enough that we can ascribe with a high degree of confidence a cause and effect relationship to the greenhouse effect. And number three, our computer climate simulations indicate that thegreenhouse effect is already large enough to begin to effect the probability of extreme events such as summer heat waves. – Jim Hansen, June 1988 testimony<http://image.guardian.co.uk/sys-files/Environment/documents/2008/06/23/ClimateChangeHearing1988.pdf> before Congress, see His later quote<http://butnowyouknow.net/those-who-fail-to-learn-from-history/climate-change-timeline/#hype> andHis superior’s objection<http://butnowyouknow.net/those-who-fail-to-learn-from-history/climate-change-timeline/#horror> for context
· 1989 -"On the one hand, as scientists we are ethically bound to the scientific method, in effect promising to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but – which means that we must include all doubts, the caveats, the ifs, ands and buts. On the other hand, we are not just scientists but human beings as well. And like most people we’d like to see the world a better place, which in this context translates into our working to reduce the risk of potentially disastrous climate change. To do that we need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination. That, of course, means getting loads of media coverage. So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have. This "double ethical bind” we frequently find ourselves in cannot be solved by any formula. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest. I hope that means being both.” – Stephen Schneider, lead author of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change,Discover magazine, October 1989
· 1990 - "We’ve got to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing – in terms of economic policy and environmental policy” – Senator Timothy Wirth
· 1993 - "Global climate change may alter temperature and rainfall patterns, many scientists fear, with uncertain consequences for agriculture.” – U.S. News and World Report
· 1998 - No matter if the science [of global warming] is all phony . . . climate change [provides] the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.” —Christine Stewart, Canadian Minister of the Environment, Calgary Herald, 1998
· 2001 - "Scientists no longer doubt that global warming is happening, and almost nobody questions the fact that humans are at least partly responsible.” – Time Magazine, Monday, Apr. 09, 2001<http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,999630,00.html>
· 2003 - Emphasis on extreme scenarios may have been appropriate at one time, when the public and decision-makers were relatively unaware of the global warming issue, and energy sources such as "synfuels,” shale oil and tar sands were receiving strong consideration” – Jim Hansen, NASA Global Warming activist, Can we defuse The Global Warming Time Bomb?<http://naturalscience.com/ns/articles/01-16/ns_jeh6.html>, 2003
· 2006 - "I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis.” — Al Gore, Grist magazine, May 2006<http://www.grist.org/news/maindish/2006/05/09/roberts/index.html>
· 2006 – "It is not a debate over whether the earth has been warming over the past century. The earth is always warming or cooling, at least a few tenths of a degree…” —Richard S. Lindzen, the Alfred P. Sloan professor of meteorology at MIT
· 2006 – "What we have fundamentally forgotten is simple primary school science. Climate always changes. It is always…warming or cooling, it’s never stable. And if it were stable, it would actually be interesting scientifically because it would be the first time for four and a half billion years.” —Philip Stott, emeritus professor of bio-geography at the University of London
· 2006 - "Since 1895, the media has alternated between global cooling and warming scares during four separate and sometimes overlapping time periods. From 1895 until the 1930’s the media peddled a coming ice age. From the late 1920’s until the 1960’s they warned of global warming. From the 1950’s until the 1970’s they warned us again of a coming ice age. This makes modern global warming the fourth estate’s fourth attempt to promote opposing climate change fears during the last 100 years.” –Senator James Inhofe<http://epw.senate.gov/speechitem.cfm?party=rep&id=263759>, Monday, September 25, 2006
· 2007- "I gave a talk recently (on fallacies of global warming) and three members of the Canadian government, the environmental cabinet, came up afterwards and said, ‘We agree with you, but it’s not worth our jobs to say anything.’ So what’s being created is a huge industry with billions of dollars of government money and people’s jobs dependent on it.” – Dr. Tim Ball, Coast-to-Coast, Feb 6, 2007
· 2008 – "Hansen was never muzzled even though he violated NASA’s official agency position on climate forecasting (i.e., we did not know enough to forecast climate change or mankind’s effect on it). Hansen thus embarrassed NASA by coming out with his claims of global warming in 1988 in his testimony before Congress” – Dr. John S. Theon, retired Chief of the Climate Processes Research Program atNASA, see above for Hansen quotes
Section updated by Anthony:
· 2009 – Climate change: melting ice will trigger wave of natural disasters. Scientists at a London conference next week will warn of earthquakes, avalanches and volcanic eruptions as the atmosphere heats up and geology is altered. Even Britain could face being struck by tsunamis – "Not only are the oceans and atmosphere conspiring against us, bringing baking temperatures, more powerful storms and floods, but the crust beneath our feet seems likely to join in too,” – Professor Bill McGuire, director of the Benfield Hazard Research Centre, at University College London, – The Guardian, Sep 2009<http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2009/sep/06/global-warming-natural-disasters-conference>.
· 2010 – What Global Warming Looks Like. It was more than 5°C (about 10°F) warmer than climatology in the eastern European region including Moscow. There was an area in eastern Asia that was similarly unusually hot. The eastern part of the United States was unusually warm, although not to the degree of the hot spots in Eurasia. James Hansen – NASA GISS, August 11, 2010<http://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/2010july/>.
· 2011 – Where Did Global Warming Go? "In Washington, ‘climate change’ has become a lightning rod, it’s a four-letter word,” said Andrew J. Hoffman, director of the University of Michigan’s Erb Institute for Sustainable Development. – New York Times, Oct 15, 2011.<http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/16/sunday-review/whatever-happened-to-global-warming.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0>
· 2012 – Global warming close to becoming irreversible-scientists. "This is the critical decade. If we don’t get the curves turned around this decade we will cross those lines,” said Will Steffen, executive director of the Australian National University’s climate change institute, speaking at a conference in London. Reuters, Mar 26, 2012<http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/03/26/us-climate-thresholds-idUSBRE82P0UJ20120326>
· 2013 – Global-warming ‘proof’ is evaporating. The 2013 hurricane season just ended as one of the five quietest years since 1960. But don’t expect anyone who pointed to last year’s hurricanes as "proof” of the need to act against global warming to apologize; the warmists don’t work that way. New York Post, Dec 5, 2013<http://nypost.com/2013/12/05/global-warming-proof-is-evaporating/>
· 2014 – Climate change: It’s even worse than we thought. Five years ago, the last report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change painted a gloomy picture of our planet’s future. As climate scientists gather evidence for the next report, due in 2014, Michael Le Page gives seven reasons why things are looking even grimmer. –New Scientist<http://www.newscientist.com/special/worse-climate> (undated in 2014)

2 Indeed it is!  Helen is a jewel on this issue, she hosts a global warming group in the land Down Under that points out all sorts of fascinating things.

No Global Cooling Panic my a, er, eye!
