PowerLine Catching Up With MCT On The 70′s Global Cooling Scam

One of my favorite web sites, PowerLine, is finally catching up with MCT on the ‘Global Cooling Scam’ from the 1970′s.

If you read PowerLine you would’ve read this today:

The climate campaign always tries to downplay the fact that the global cause du jour in the mid-1970s was the prospect of a new ice age.  It was only a handful of marginal scientists (though Newsweek reported the scientific community was “almost unanimous” about the threat of cooling, almost as though it was a “consensus”), and a few scattered media reports.

However, long time MCT readers would’ve known about the global cooling hype from the 70′s and its resurgence a few years ago. Via MCT 7/8/2010:

It’s like the 70′s all over again. Remember the TV Show In Search Of… hosted by Leonard Nimoy?

If Spock… I mean Leonard Nimoy… Is hosting a show warning everyone of the doom we all face from the impending ice age on prime time TV, you know it wasn’t a fringe idea.

The whole thing is such a scam.

    “However, long time MCT readers would’ve known about the global cooling hype from the 70′s and its resurgence a few years ago.”

    I knew about it in the ’70s. Because I’m, like, old and stuff. There actually was a lot of reporting about it, and the proposed solution looks mighty familiar these days.

      That’s funny!

      But in all seriousness, there is tons of literature, videos and information from the 70′s with ‘scientists’ claiming the next ice age is right around the corner. They can’t deny it.
