THE ARCTIC : Ground Zero For Anthropogenic Hubris And Climate Change Hysteria

Polar Bears + Bertrand Russel.png

CLIMATE change alarmists conveniently ‘deny’ the existence of the 1970’s “global cooling” scare because such panic, a mere 40 years ago, threatens the legitimacy of the current “global warming” scare.

However, climate experts and government agencies of the day were indeed warning of impending climate doom and that we must take immediate “action” to avoid catastrophe.

Sound familiar?

Warming alarmists rebut the 1970’s global cooling scare with claims that the phenomenon wasn’t “peer-reviewed” or that a “consensus” of “97%” of “scientists” didn’t agree. However, it doesn’t take Einstein to realise that the fashionable eco-scare of the day was indeed very real…


IN 1976 the CIA warned the cooling climate would bring – “drought, starvation, social unrest and political upheaval” :

From a correspondent in Washington

MAJOR world climate changes were under way that would cause economic and political upheavals “almost beyond comprehension”, an internal report of the Central Intelligence Agency has warned the US Government.

“The new climatic era brings a promise of famine and starvation to  many areas of the world”, the report  warns.

The report, which contends that the Climate changes began in 1960, is based on a study by Mr Reid Bryson of the University of Wisconsin.

Its basic premise is that the world’s climate is cooling and will revert to conditions prevalent between 1600 and 1850 — when the earth’s population was less than 1,000 million and its rural, pre-industrial era civilisations were largely capable of feeding themselves.

The report, which- was concerned with possible political and economic threats the United States could expect from such drastic events, said the starvation and famine would lead to social unrest and global migration of populations.

Former NCAR senior scientist Steven Schneider was convinced that mankind’s activities were sufficient enough “to trigger an ice age” :

In 1976, Schneider warned of disastrous global cooling, and reported his frustration that Nixon didn’t believe him :

THE situation was so dire that “spectacular solutions” were needed “such as melting the Arctic ice cap by covering it with black soot :


The UN was so concerned about 1970’s man-made global cooling that they were assessing “several proposals” to “eliminate the ice” including spreading “soot or black dust on the frozen sea to absorb the sun’s heat and increase melting in the summer and spring” :



FAST-FORWARD to 2018 and today’s climate ‘experts’ are so concerned about the Arctic that they now want to sprinkle sand” all over it to “stave off the most punishing effects of … global warming” !


People have been imagining that the climate is changing, exaggerating every weather event, getting widespread press coverage, and blaming it on man – for as long as there have been newspapers…

10 January 1871


THREE consecutive years of drought, while they have stimulated the inventive resources of practical agriculturists, have had the natural effect of calling forth a plentiful crop of speculation from weather prophets and projectors, and half-instructed meteorologists, and all the philosophic tribe of Laputa in general, to whom the periodical press now affords such fatal facilities.

We have often noticed that in the tabular statements of those compilers of weather records who write to the Times, useful and welcome as their communications are, every season is sure to be “extraordinary,” almost every month one of the driest or wettest, or windiest, coldest or hottest, ever known. Much observation, which ought to correct a tendency to exaggerate, seems in some minds to have rather a tendency to increase it.  And many seem now to regard three dry hot years in succession as betokening some general change of climate, as if it was not perfectly certain, in the wide range of the table of what we call chances, that with our existing conditions of climate such a combination must every now and then recur. We know an ingenious theorist who would fain persuade us that a cycle of six hundred unfavorable years has  just reached its termination, and that English agriculturists, who left off making wine about A.D. 1250 because their grapes ceased to ripen,  will soon be making it again, and continue to do so for an equivalent number of centuries.  Others speculating quite as conjecturally and even more absurdly, seem to attribute the impending change of climate – of which they assume the reality – to the operation of men.

Contrary to popular hysteria, the Arctic is doing just fine…

Temperatures in the Arctic are still below -20C, and Arctic sea ice volume is normal and highest in the past four years.

    Great fun to read, but when was Stephen Schneider director of NCAR?
