From the Washington Times:
NASA scientist James E. Hansen, who has publicly criticized the Bush administration for dragging its feet on climate change and labeled skeptics of man-made global warming as distracting "court jesters," appears in a 1971 Washington Post article that warns of an impending ice age within 50 years.This is the very same program they are using now to prove that our world will turn into Venus if we don't stop global warming. They cite that since Venus is driven by the same chemical structure that our environment is but only in greater amounts, then if our amounts increased then we too would turn into something similar to what exists on Venus.
U.S. Scientist Sees New Ice Age Coming," blares the headline of the July 9, 1971, article, which cautions readers that the world "could be as little as 50 or 60 years away from a disastrous new ice age, a leading atmospheric scientist predicts."
The scientist was S.I. Rasool, a colleague of Mr. Hansen's at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The article goes on to say that Mr. Rasool came to his chilling conclusions by resorting in part to a new computer program developed by Mr. Hansen that studied clouds above Venus.
And to bring it on home....
The 1971 article, discovered this week by Washington resident John Lockwood while he was conducting related research at the Library of Congress, says that "in the next 50 years" — or by 2021 — fossil-fuel dust injected by man into the atmosphere "could screen out so much sunlight that the average temperature could drop by six degrees," resulting in a buildup of "new glaciers that could eventually cover huge areas."
If sustained over "several years, five to 10," or so Mr. Rasool estimated, "such a temperature decrease could be sufficient to trigger an ice age."
Again, these same people were crying with massive alarm about the oncoming Global Ice Age. With the exact same inferior model, they are now crying about massive Global Warming. Stupid sheeple just follow in lock step because it fits their need to blame the government and America for all of the Earth's changes and fluctuations.I just find it amazing that even though a small minority of people are crying and whaling about Climate Change, there is ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE that any change in weather is globally man-made.
