    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.

    Good find, Peil. I think we've determined that the global warming crowd doesn't want to be bothered with the facts, though.
     
  3. With a name like Phil Valentine he's got to be right. Nice packaging.

    1895 is probably a good year, or a good era, to find some old photos of glaciers, and compare them to those glaciers today. But since we had a record cold day somewhere last week I suppose the glaciers will advance to their old positions now. But they better hurry, since the next warming will occur within a decade (they need to advance a coupla miles, and retreat those same miles, fast!), in keeping with the OP's flipflopping "model" you see...

    Don't be ignorant. It's a natural warming cycle.
