1979 : Experts Warned Of Global Cooling If Antarctic Sea Ice Increased

Real Science

In a classic Orwellian exercise, experts have gone from saying an increase in Antarctic sea ice would produce cooling, to saying that the observed increase in Antarctic sea ice is caused by global warming.

Since the experts made this warning, Antarctica sea ice area has steadily increased to record highs.

Gavin Schmidt of NASA responded predictably, by simply altering the temperature record to show warming instead of cooling. As of 2004, he reported a strong cooling trend.

While most of the Earth warmed rapidly during recent decades, surface temperatures decreased significantly over most of Antarctica.

Two years later, NASA magically turned it into a warming trend.
