Study Debunks Supposed Scientist Consensus Over Global Cooling

U.S. (TGW) – A new study conducted by the National Climatic Data Center concludes that the supposed “global cooling” consensus among scientists in the 1970s is a myth.



Newsweek, Time, The New York Times and National Geographic all published articles speculating that the Earth could be on the path towards a new ice age.

However, Thomas Peterson of the National Climatic Data Center surveyed dozens of peer-reviewed scientific articles from 1965 to 1979 and found that only seven supported global cooling, while 44 predicted warming.

Peterson says 20 others were neutral in their assessments of climate trends.

"There was no scientific consensus in the 1970s that the Earth was headed into an imminent ice age," the report says.

"A review of the literature suggests that, to the contrary, greenhouse warming even then dominated scientists' thinking about the most important forces shaping Earth's climate on human time scales."

Even within the media there was no consensus of cooling, Peterson reports. "Even cursory review of the news media coverage of the issue reveals that, just as there was no consensus at the time among scientists, so was there also no consensus among journalists."

Funny. I wish we could do the same analysis today so we could also debunk the myth that there is a consensus amongst climatologists about human-forced global warming. There appears to be a genuine consensus however that none of the global warming computer models predicted the current ten year running global cooling trend. Doink!
