Global Warming....Scaring the public since 1895.

Discussion in 'Politics' started by peilthetraveler, Feb 11, 2011.


    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.
