  •  Yes, try to pay more attention (0+ / 0-)

    They started in the 1950s, actually.

    Your comment seemed sarcastic.

    •  Take it however you like. (0+ / 0-)

      I don't recall hearing anything about it more than, say, ten years ago.  Sometime before that, we were supposedly headed for catastrophic cooling.

      •  You seem to be parading your ignorance (0+ / 0-)

        as proof of something besides your ignorance.

        Which is rather extreme. Your ignorance, I mean.

        •  Yeah, the "global cooling" warnings ... (1+ / 0-)

          must have been just figments of my imagination ... as are the 1.4 MILLION Google references to it.  Silly me.

          •  Why yes! It's the grand global cooling scare again (0+ / 0-)

            Hey, could you do us a favor and produce some reputed peer-reviewed studies that align with the consensus of these "global cooling" forecasts? Because the first several hits I get from Google show amateurish, pseudo-intellectual "skeptic" blogs and then other sites with some backing documentation that point out that most scientists were anticipating a warmer Earth during the 1970s. And somehow, on the road to confirmation bias, the desperate and conspiracy-thirsty factions of media have recently exhumed some articles from.... sensational, debunked news magazine articles. Some conspiracy.

            This canard's been wrecked before, but perhaps there's a miniscule chance someone could salvage it from its intellectual grave. I'm doubtful and uninterested though, so I'm done here.

            •  I never said I believed it, ... (0+ / 0-)

              nor did I believe it, just that there were dire warnings about it at one time.
