From April 3, 2006 column by George Will

Science magazine (Dec. 10, 1976) warned of "extensive Northern Hemisphere glaciation." Science Digest (February 1973) reported that "the world's climatologists are agreed" that we must "prepare for the next ice age." The Christian Science Monitor ("Warning: Earth's Climate is Changing Faster Than Even Experts Expect," Aug. 27, 1974) reported that glaciers "have begun to advance," "growing seasons in England and Scandinavia are getting shorter" and "the North Atlantic is cooling down about as fast as an ocean can cool." Newsweek agreed ("The Cooling World," April 28, 1975) that meteorologists "are almost unanimous" that catastrophic famines might result from the global cooling that the New York Times (Sept. 14, 1975) said "may mark the return to another ice age." The Times (May 21, 1975) also said "a major cooling of the climate is widely considered inevitable" now that it is "well established" that the Northern Hemisphere's climate "has been getting cooler since about 1950."

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me.

You'd think we'd have learned. Oh well, I'm getting my order for extra fire wood and down clothing ready!

Global warming or global freezing! They just can't make up their minds.

Genesis 8:22
While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease."

I was in Highschool when this global cooling garbage was being force-fed to us. I was hoping that wasn't the only one to remember that stuff from back in the '70's. I remember Leonard Nimoy did an entire "In Search Of" program on that subject. Buffalo, NY had just gotten buried in a snow storm and pictures of that event were used on that show to illustrate how dire the situation was getting.

I personally believe it is agenda driven by socialistic (liberal) thinkers who like to gin up problems that only big government can solve......
