Yesterday’s global cooling

The pols like to keep the little people agitated with one scare or another—see the Boy Emperor’s current gun control campaign which has no chance of becoming law—because it helps keep the snooze media busy while hiding the thieving they’re actually, uh, spending their time and our money on.

The Texas Legislature does it every biennium with some threat of, say, new regulations for abortion (the snooze media backs abortion, you see).

Hence global warming/climate change’s little-remembered antecedent: global cooling leading to an imminent Ice Age. Ah, but these are scientists who preach this stuff, you say? Not really, they’re politicos with science degrees who depend on federal funding to keep their university jobs. And who controls the funding? Congratulations. Now you’re catching on.

Via Powerline, which has a neat video clip showing one “activist” who lately has preached warming actually preaching cooling way back when. Gotta love the Internet.

  1. I shall sit it out on the fence. Keeping both the oil stove and the a/c in working shape 😉

    Seems sensible. Meanwhile, try this scifi book “Fallen Angels,” the gist of which is that the feds cut back CO2 emissions so drastically that it not only collapses the economy but brings on a new Ice Age, with glaciers as far south as your old home ground in St. Louis.

    The tale was written two decades before King Caboose and his global warming loonies started trying to kill CO2 emissions on a grand scale.
