Is it back to global warming from climate change? I thought it was global cooling in the 70's? Libtards crack me up!

Only if you were a fool.

"Global cooling was a conjecture during the 1970s of imminent cooling of the Earth's surface and atmosphere along with a posited commencement of glaciation. This hypothesis had little support in the scientific community, but gained temporary popular attention due to a combination of a slight downward trend of temperatures from the 1940s to the early 1970s and press reports that did not accurately reflect the scientific understanding of ice age cycles. In contrast to the global cooling conjecture, the current scientific opinion on climate change is that the Earth has not durably cooled, but undergone global warming throughout the 20th centuryIn response to such reports, the World Meteorological Organization issued a warning in June 1976 that a very significant warming of global climate was probable".

Well the liberals sure bought into it because they, and the science community, were sure giving warnings. Time magazine had an article in 1974 that said "When meteorologists take an average of temperatures around the globe, they find that the atmosphere has been growing gradually cooler for the past three decades. The trend shows no indication of reversing. Climatological Cassandras are becoming increasingly apprehensive, for the weather aberrations they are studying may be the harbinger of another ice age." And what did they attribute this to? Aerosols. That's right aerosols.
Another article in 2007 found that the same thing is happening now that happened in the 1920's:
Dec. 13, 2007 — Two researchers here spent months scouring through old expedition logs and reports, and reviewing 70-year-old maps and photos before making a surprising discovery: They found that the effects of the current warming and melting of Greenland's glaciers that has alarmed the world's climate scientists occurred in the decades following an abrupt warming in the 1920s.

In a nutshell, the global temperature and weather patterns have fluctuated in an almost identical pattern since time began. Instead of realizing that their ideology is not just flawed but flat out wrong, liberals have been using one lie after another to divide groups of people in order to gain power. If they told what their real agenda was, they would have been long since gone from American culture. Global warming and climate change is simply another political tool used by liberal socialist/communist to further their agenda. They have recently targeted the one and only TRUE beacon of freedom in this world, which is the United States of America. When she falls, the world will be thrown into complete chaos because America was the only country capable of holding up the rest of the world and keeping order while the leaders of other countries ACTUALLY suppress their citizens so they may be filthy rich. We don't realize how lucky we are to be free but I fear we will soon find out.

And you've swallowed, hook, line, and sinker the very bait that has been set by every reactionary movement throughout history...confuse and confound, divide and conquer....then rule with a iron fist. If there is a threat to this country, it is those that wrap themselves in the flag, espouse a hard-line religious zeal, all the while seeking to deny others their right to self-determination.

I would hate being as pessimistic, as fatalistic as most of you.

In a nutshell, here's the rest of the article with which you have taken so much liberty.
Their evidence reinforces the belief that glaciers and other bodies of ice are exquisitely hyper-sensitive to climate change and bolsters the concern that rising temperatures will speed the demise of that island's ice fields, hastening sea level rise.
The work, recently reported at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco , may help to discount critics' notion that the melting of Greenland 's glaciers is merely an isolated, regional event.
They recently recognized from using weather station records from the past century that temperatures in Greenland had warmed in the 1920s at rates equivalent to the recent past. But they hadn't confirmed that the island's glaciers responded to that earlier warming, until now.
“What's novel about this is that we found a wealth of information from low-tech sources that has been overlooked by most researchers,” explained Jason Box, an associate professor of geography at Ohio State University and a researcher with the Byrd Polar Research Center. Many researchers, he says, rely heavily on information from satellites and other modern sources.
Undergraduate student Adam Herrington, co-author on this paper and a student in the School of Earth Sciences, spent weeks in the university's libraries and archives, scouring the faded, dusty books that contained the logs of early scientific expeditions, looking primarily for photos and maps of several of Greenland 's key glaciers.
“I must have paged through more than a hundred such volumes to get the data we needed for this study,” Herrington said.
They concentrated on three large glaciers flowing out from the central ice sheet towards the ocean – the Jakobshavn Isbrae, the Kangerdlugssuaq and the Helheim.
“These three glaciers are huge and collectively, they drain as much as 40 percent of the southern half of the ice sheet. All three have recently increased their speed as the temperature rose,” Box said, adding that the Kangerdlugssuaq, at 3.1 miles (5 kilometers) wide is half-again as wide as New York's Manhattan Island .
Digging through the old data, Herrington found a map from 1932 and an aerial photo from 1933 that documented how, during a warm period, the Kangerdlugssuaq Glacier lost a piece of floating ice that was nearly the size of New York 's Manhattan Island .
“That parallels what we know about recent changes,” Box said.“In 2002 to 2003, that same glacier retreated another 3.1 miles (5 kilometers), and that it tripled its speed between 2000 and 2005.”
The fact that recent changes to Greenland's ice sheet mirror its behavior nearly 70 years ago is increasing researchers' confidence and alarm as to what the future holds. Recent warming around the frozen island actually lags behind the global average warming pattern by about 1-2 degrees C but if it fell into synch with global temperatures in a few years, the massive ice sheet might pass its “threshold of viability”– a tipping point where the loss of ice couldn't be stopped.
“Once you pass that threshold,” Box said,“the current science suggests that it would become an irreversible process. And we simply don't know how fast that might happen, how fast the ice might disappear.”

Greenland 's ice sheet contains at least 10 percent of the world's freshwater AND it has been losing more than 24 cubic miles (100 cubic kilometers) of ice annually for the last five years and 2007 was a record year for glacial melting there.
