OK, I was just going to read about old extreme weather events. Then I found this one article in this posting that really woke me up. It just has so much right.
I was reading this page:
and down in the middle was this newspaper article from 1979. We’re talking before the whole Global Warming Scare thing. Back when the New Little Ice Age was the thing. And it ‘calls the ball’ pretty much exactly. I can only wonder if Hansen et. al. read this, and realized it was right, then decided to craft an ‘exploit’ of that wisdom…
Not only does it say when warming and cold would happen, but it says it is cyclical. They also use a clever way of dating isotope changes. Oxygen isotopes, but in tree rings. AND CO2 isotope composition. I’m just going to link to the images Steven Goddard has up at his site, but do read his whole article for more interesting bits.
Just amazing. I think finding the works those folks published is a big “Dig Here!”… They’ve been right for over 40 years. It needs more visibility, IMHO. Even the 2000 date is only off by a year or two from the peak, and we’ve been downhill since, with colder on the way.
