Here it is.<quoted text>
The ice age story was false. http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/weather/climat...
Wow, you are proven to be yet again to be UNINFORMED.
We have over a hundred years of record temperatures.
We have climate information going back centuries.
"The '70s was an unusually cold decade."
"Thomas Peterson of the National Climatic Data Center surveyed dozens of peer-reviewed scientific articles from 1965 to 1979" - Dozens? There were only dozens to review, or did he cherry pick? Not enough information in the article to know.
" Peterson, who was also a contributor to the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 2007 report." - oh, snap!
I might be "uninformed", but I don't need an article to tell me they were wrong about the coming ice age.
Not from your article, but interesting information none the less
“The worriers about cooling included Science, the most influential scientific journal in the world, quoting an official of the World Meteorological Organization; the National Academy of Sciences worrying about the onset of a 10,000 year ice age; Newsweek warning that food production could be adversely affected within a decade; the New York Times quoting an official of the National Center for Atmospheric Research; and Science Digest, the science periodical with the largest circulation.”
“Several schools of thought in climate science interpret existing data in different ways. One argues that, instead of growing warmer, the Earth may enter an Ice Age as a result of man-made fuels combustion. The combustion of fossil fuels releases large quantities of particulate matter into the atmosphere, which may reflect sunlight away from the Earth, thus cooling the planet.”
