Skip to comments.Time Magazine Swings Both Ways: Can't Decide Whether we have Global Warming or Global Cooling

As spotted by Steve Goddard, and linked to by Climate Depot:
In 1974, Time Magazine blamed the cold polar vortex on global cooling.
‘Scientists have found other indications of global cooling. For one thing there has been a noticeable expansion of the great belt of dry, high-altitude polar winds the so-called circumpolar vortexthat sweep from west to east around the top and bottom of the world.’
Another Ice Age? TIME
Forty years later, Time Magazine blames the cold polar vortex on global warming
‘But not only does the cold spell not disprove climate change, it may well be that global warming could be making the occasional bout of extreme cold weather in the U.S. even more likely. Right now much of the U.S. is in the grip of a polar vortex, which is pretty much what it sounds like: a whirlwind of extremely cold, extremely dense air that forms near the poles.’

To borrow from an item I wrote a few days before Christmas, as Zombie noted at PJM last year, the warnings for what industrialized man should do to fight global cooling are virtually identical to the warnings would-be “climate” “scientists” have given to fight global warming as well. You can also see the same cure for very different alleged symptoms in the clip below, of a “scientist” who was busted a few years ago for first predicting doom from global cooling, and decades later, predicting doom from global warming:
Either way it’s going to take a lot of taxes and restrictions on the way people live to solve whichever problem it turns out to be.
So Time Magazine is bi-polar?
WOW! Time had a website in 1974? Who knew?
When EVERY weather event “proves” your theory, you don’t have a theory, you have a cult.
Liberals just make things up as they go along.
We have gotten to the point where all weather is blamed on global warming. They have changed the name of global warming to climate change, so that any extreme event can be blamed on this.
The liberals pushed Hurricane Sandy as being blamed on global warming. Though hurricanes striking the New Jersey and New York coasts is rare, it has happened many times in recorded history. But that doesn’t matter to the liberals who push these stories.
Liberals tend to push things as some crisis.
Does anyone really believe that we would not have had this cold snap, if only Congress had passed Obama’s cap and trade bill a few yeats ago??? Or that Sandy or Katrina would not have happened if only we had cap and trade in place then???
Yep, whether it’s cooling or warming, a new ice age or “the earth has a fever”,
it all comes down to an excuse for the “solutions” -
increased taxation, reduced individual liberty, increased government power.
And Al Gore is still going to fill up his bank accounts regardless of which scenario occurs with his “expertise” on these subjects.
In a word YES! The LIV crowd that heard about it on their FREE OBAMAPHONES.
When they become tired of Climate Change, they can go for Global Wooling or Global Carming.
Time magazine ALSO can’t decide if it is still in business, or not (since nobody reads it anymore and you never see it anywhere, but apparently it still exists if someone is writing an article for it?)
Yeah it’s tough to think clearly when you’ve got your head up your patootie.
Personally, I can’ wait for the human-induced Solar Vortex to warm things up a bit.
Well, the one thing they can agree on is that humans are evil and responsible for every bad thing.
We are having whatever results in the election of more statists, the de-industrialization of America, the redistribution of its wealth, and the total control of its citizens.
Whatever facilitates that end is what we are having, and we caused it all.
Don't they know the whole scam has been renamed to "Global Climate Change"?
RE: “Global Climate Change”
Well I believe in Global Climate Change -— Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn.
I see the Climate changing every time. :)
I remember Time Magazine.
So the bottom line is that global warming is whatever the hell they say it is, and you’ll like it.
Isn’t this “Polar Vortex” the same thing as the “JET STREAM” that always brought us our colder than normal weather in years past?
Either way, we're gonna die and its our own fault.
If every coal fired power plant in the US was closed tomorrow, would there be a measurable change in "global warming"? I don't think so.
As usual Time Magazine is wrong.
It is not global warming or climate change.
It is Weather Change. It happens every day, sometimes every hour!
The “climate & weather” of this planet have both been changing for approximately 4.5 billion years, or 6,000 years if you are a fan of Bishop Usher who calculated that the earth was created in 4004 BC.
Folks need to look beyond their own life time memory. I recall a part of “A child’s Christmas in Wales” — “I don’t remember if it snow everyday for 12 days when I was 6 or that it snowed for 6 days when I was 12.”
The scientists got nothing. They don’t even know if any warming is not just occurring naturally. That’s why they continue to MANIPULATE THE DATA, and then rely on the socialist frauds in the MSM to HIDE THE DECLINE AND COVER THEIR BEHIND.
I notice that Time also declared that ‘we can’t beat the Soviets’ in 1977.
