1. Should you trust what Climate 'Scientists' and the Media say about Climate Change?
2. Do we REALLY have 12-years left to avert global climate catastrophe?
3. Should we be instilling fear into our children that the planet is doomed?
4. This thread will trace the last 50 years of warnings spread by the Media since 1970.

YOU DECIDE whether you should be skeptical of climate "science".
5. Let's start this journey by time-traveling back to the 1970, when Climate 'Scientists' and the Media were pushing global cooling alarmism with dire threats of a new ice age.
6.

1970 - The ice age is coming!
7.

1971 - A looming Ice Age caused by man-made pollution!

10.

1974 - Time Magazine warned that we were indeed headed for an ice age.

web.archive.org/web/2006081202…
11.

According to the media:

-Scientific data shows the world is heading to a new ice age.
-Space satellites show new ice age coming fast!
-Prominent scientists warned of a grim forecast for the future.
-Scientists are fearful about global cooling.
12.

1974 - New evidence shows the Ice Age is here!

13.

1975 - The world's climate is cooling.

14.

1975 - Humanity is faced with a new challenge to survival according to Science News.

sciencenews.org/sites/default/…
15.

As of April 1975, Newsweek said the evidence for widespread planetary cooling was "ominous" and "has now begun to accumulate so massively that meterologists are hard-pressed to keep up with it." Scientists warned of the grim reality of a cooling world. Famine is imminent.
16.

1976 - the media warned the approaching ice age is a climatological crisis of awesome proportions
17.

1978 - According to climate scientists and the media, it's going to be a tragic situation unless something is done at the government level.

news.google.com/newspapers?id=…
18.

1978 - there is NO end in sight to the cooling trend of the last 30 years according to the NY Times.

timesmachine.nytimes.com/timesmachine/1…
19.

1979 - according to the media, climate scientists were so worried about a new ice age that they were considering POURING SOOT over the arctic to help melt the ice in order to prevent another ice age.
20.

1980 - According to the media, the global cooling will result in famine on a world scale.
21.

1980 - At this point, multiple scientific journals had published evidence showing the global cooling trend.

journals.ametsoc.org/doi/pdf/10.117…
22. And climate scientists and the media continued to warn the public about the dangers of global cooling during the first half of 1981

Then strangely, in August of 1981, it all STOPPED. 🛑
23. And the climate crisis abruptly SWITCHED from an ice age to global warming.

BUT the results somehow have stayed the same – the deaths of millions or even billions of people, widespread devastation and famine.
24. It all begins on Aug. 22, 1981 with the NY Times quoting 7 government climate scientists who predicted global warming of an ‘ALMOST UNPRECEDENTED MAGNITUDE.’
25. Odd how the media didn't question the findings of these 7 scientists to find out how the climate crisis changed so abruptly & drastically?
26. Nevertheless, by 1982, according to the media and the UN, the world faced an environmental catastrophe with devastation as great as nuclear holocaust within 2 decades "unless governments act NOW."

2019 - THE WORLD IS GOING TO END IN 12 YEARS if we don’t address climate change!

usatoday.com/story/news/pol…
90. For the past 50 years, Climate Scientists keep saying the world is going to end yet they still can’t even predict today’s weather.
91. First it was going to be a new ice age, then it was global warming, and now it is climate change.
92. Of course, the climate has been changing ever since the beginning of time; and, of course, it’s still changing now. Climate changes, that’s what it does.
93. Chicken Little? Boy Who Cried Wolf? The parallels for what Climate 'Scientists' & the Media have been doing in regards to “climate catastrophe” is striking. You can only cry wolf so many times before the public no longer believes you.
94. Make no mistake. Taking care of the Earth is NOT a partisan issue. We MUST plan responsibly & thoughtfully for our future, and take care of the environment that we all live in.
95. Whether Democrat or Republican, Liberal or Conservative, Left or Right, we all love the great outdoors. We want clean air and water. We don't want smog, contamination, or pollution. We can all come together for our planet. BUT the sky is NOT falling from climate change!
