1974 : NCAR Called Global Cooling The “New Norm” And Blamed Climate Disasters On It | Real Science

by Walter Orr Roberts  Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies, and National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, Colorado

In February of 1972 earth-orbiting artificial satellites revealed the existence of a greatly increased area of the snow and ice cover of the north polar cap as compared to all previous years of space age observations. Some scientists believe that this may have presaged the onset of the dramatic climate anomalies of 1972 that brought far-reaching adversities to the world’s peoples. Moreover, there is mounting evidence that the bad climate of 1972 may be the forerunner of a long series of less favorable agricultural crop years that lie ahead for most world societies. Thus widespread food shortages threaten just at the same time that world populations are growing to new highs. Indeed, less favorable climate may be the new global norm. The Earth may have entered a new “little ice age”

There are strong signs that these recent climate disasters were not random deviations from the usual weather, but instead signals of the emergence of a new normal for world climates.

Remember when Global Cooling was signaled by expanding Arctic ice?

Today the Global Warming howlers cite shrinking Arctic ice as proof of their assertions. Unfortunately for them, Arctic ice isn’t shrinking. It’s growing.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. 1972 was before the development of the SUV. SUVs (which are just one aspect of Anthropogenic Global Warming) are responsible for the reversal of the encoldening of the planet and for tipping the balance into all of us dying of earthquakes and dehydration*. In other words, We’re all gonna die!

    * I read some time ago an argument that global warming will cause more water to go into the atmosphere, and the warmer air will make the water vapor more energetic and therefore more likely to escape to space, and therefore global warming will make our oceans disappear. The article (?) did not address the seemingly greater problem caused by loss of atmosphere if the increased kinetic energy were actually that great.
