There are ominous signs that the Earths weather patterns have begun to change dramatically and that these changes may portend a drastic decline in food production with serious political implications for just about every nation on Earth. The drop in food output could begin quite soon, perhaps only 10 years from now. The regions destined to feel its impact are the great wheat-producing lands of Canada and the U.S.S.R. in the North, along with a number of marginally self-sufficient tropical areas parts of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indochina and Indonesia where the growing season is dependent upon the rains brought by the monsoon.
The evidence in support of these predictions has now begun to accumulate so massively that meteorologists are hard-pressed to keep up with it. In England, farmers have seen their growing season decline by about two weeks since 1950, with a resultant overall loss in grain production estimated at up to 100,000 tons annually. During the same time, the average temperature around the equator has risen by a fraction of a degree a fraction that in some areas can mean drought and desolation. Last April, in the most devastating outbreak of tornadoes ever recorded, 148 twisters killed more than 300 people and caused half a billion dollars' worth of damage in 13 U.S. states.

Yep. And now global warming is to blame for tornados. if only we could have kept the exact same temperatures we would never have tornados...
How's the Iceberg Lettuce crop this year? Fart buncha smellers ain't they?
We are still DOOMED.
Everybody knows that trailer parks cause tornados.
Won't someone PLEASE think of the children!!!!/scsm
I gather it is much easier for liberals to annoint themselves as "holier than thou" prophets of doom:
(1) if liberals condemn sinners for their "excess" generation of green-house gases (due to excess SUVs, excess air-conditioning, excess heating etc. ad nauseum) rather than
(2) if liberals condemn sinners for their "insufficent" generation of those green-house gases.
Hence, the self-serving redefinition of our greatest "environmental threat" as global "warming".
It was all Bush's fault ... even back in the 1970s!!!!!
And here I thought tornadoes were cause by young women with annoying yippy dogs that bite old ladies in Kansas.
Are there any articles from like the 1950's? I'd be interested to see if environmentalists were doing even in that era?
It's just a big money racket for the environmental wacko's to get government funding and contributions from their mailing list of suckers.
I don't know how or why, but it has to be Bush's fault.
Oh cool, The Club Of Rome. If we're getting this retro, we'll see people disco dance in public again and that would be hilarious.
New Ice Age: Women and minorities hurt most.
This is the 70's man. It has to be Nixon's fault.
