Climate cluelessness comes full circle

I well remember the 1979 news in my local paper. It was the last year that “global cooling” and “the coming ice age” appeared in the press (I clipped this from my paper). 

Then 9 years later — 1988 — it all changed. 

No, it wasn’t a coming ice age. It was global warming! 

This was 30 years ago this month. 


Then there was the non-pause pause. 

Then there was global climate change (to “explain” the pause). 

Then global climate disruption. 

Atmospheric radicalization. 

And so it goes.
