You have been pinged because of your interest in environmentalism, alarmist wackos, mainstream media doomsday hype, and other issues pertaining to global warming. Freep-mail me to get on or off. Please ping me to all note-worthy threads on global warming.
We all know about the Newsweek article, but I didn't recall this one, which is essentially the same.

("Good guys" aren't always "nice guys".)
I have a copy of "Forecasts, Famines and Freezes" by John Gribben published November 1977. On the back cover it says
Item: A 2 degree winter temperature drop could raise the U.S. fuel bill by at least $10,000,000,000.
Item: A diversion of monsoon rains in Central India means no grain harvest for 37,000,000 people
Item: We have just lived through the worst winter in a century. Dr. John Gribben predicts that savage winters will continue for the next 30 years.
With the world entering a mini ice-age, it is vital that scientists recognize the enormity of the crisis in terms of world economics, food and energy supply, and political implications. In this highly important book, Dr. Gribben examines the capabilities and limitations of conventional forecasting techniques and the role they will play in the single most important area of scientific research in modern times.
