More pieces of the global warming puzzle assembled by recent research | Dana Nuccitelli
The Skeptical Science study finding a 97 percent expert consensus that humans are causing global warming led readers to ask several related climate questions.

"This warm spell is already 11,600 years old, and it must surely, in the normal course of things, come to an end. In the early 1970s, after two decades of slight cooling, many scientists were convinced that the moment was at hand. They were “increasingly apprehensive, for the weather aberrations they are studying may be the harbinger of another ice age,” said Time in 1974. The “almost unanimous” view of meteorologists was that the cooling trend would “reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century,” and “the resulting famines could be catastrophic,” said Newsweek in 1975."

Very good point. If someone sites 10 papers from the mid 20th century regarding G.C. someone else can find 10 about G.W.
The most scientific approach to such a dichotomy is to determine a consensus view of Climate Change. What ever view that appears to have >50% popularity will be deemed as the truth about Climate Change.
This is the current construct concerning cultural concepts causing catastrophic climate change... correct?

Now a new study led by researchers at Oregon State University has documented why oysters appear so sensitive to increasing acidity. It isn’t necessarily a case of acidic water dissolving their shells, researchers say. Rather it is a case of water high in carbon dioxide altering shell formation rates, energy usage and, ultimately, the growth and survival of the young oysters.

Lying bag of excrement! There is no comparison. In the cites that you dishonestly dismissed, you will find that Wiki's characterization is UNDENIABLY supported, "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."
ScepticalScience: "A survey of peer reviewed scientific papers from 1965 to 1979 show that few papers predicted global cooling (7 in total). Significantly more papers (42 in total) predicted global warming (Peterson 2008). The large majority of climate research in the 1970s predicted the Earth would warm as a consequence of CO2. Rather than 1970s scientists predicting cooling, the opposite is the case."
