William Connolly is wrong!

This will be a place where evidence of global cooling concerns of the 1960's and 1970's will be posted,to address Mr.Connolly's 2008 paper that willfully leaves out many reports of many published reports on the well known cooling trend they were facing in those days.

I was a TEENAGER during the 1970's,who witnessed first hand the common discussions about the obvious past 3 decades of cooling trend as recorded in those days. There were global cooling books in the Schools library at the time,read Lowell Ponte's book,The Cooling.

From Popular Technology

1970s Global Cooling Alarmism

"During the 1970s the media promoted global cooling alarmism with dire threats of a new ice age. Extreme weather events were hyped as signs of the coming apocalypse and man-made pollution was blamed as the cause. Environmental extremists called for everything from outlawing the internal combustion engine to communist style population controls."

=============================================================================

From Not a Lot of People Know That

1977 Spiegel Warned Of Little Ice Age Soon: “Widespread Glaciation” …”Temperature Has Fallen 0.3°C”!

"Back in the 1970s, many media outlets warned of global cooling and even a possible coming ice age. For example here I wrote about how Spiegel in 1974 grimly reported of threatening global cooling and that the odds of global warming were “at best” only 1 in 10,000!"

Most of these 'so called' experts still get things wrong.  There is no upcoming Ice Age in the near future.  That's impossible because we are Still in the middle of one right now.  Its the Pleistocene, and the Wackos can try to change the name to Holocene, which is really the current inter-glacial, but that still doesn't change reality.  But the truth is that we are at the edge of the cliff, and about to be in free fall into the "Next Glaciation", not new ice age.

When we talk about the next round of ice sheets, we should Never call it a new ice age.  It is a new chapter, i.e. Glaciation, in the ongoing ice age that has been around for over 2.5 million years now.  

I wish people would start getting their acts together, just as they keep screwing up the word "Liberal", which means just the opposite of what so many mix up with Progressives.  Angry

No they didn't change the name,since the Pliestocene epoch ended about 11,700 years ago.The Holocene is now the current epoch as agreed.

From Wikipedia


Quote:It is accepted by the International Commission on Stratigraphy that the Holocene started approximately 11,700 years ago.[4] The epoch follows the Pleistocene and the last glacial period (local names for the last glacial period include the Wisconsinan in North America,[8] the Weichselian in Europe,[9] the Devensian in Britain,[10] the Llanquihue in Chile[11] and the Otiran in New Zealand[12]). The Holocene can be subdivided into five time intervals, or chronoz ones, based on climatic fluctuations:

Agree with you about using the word Glaciation,which is already happening now. The current Interglacial period is already in late Autumn state.

This whole thing about the Holocene is a bit nuts, because it is confusing.  If you look here at the "Quaternary Glaciation" page, it states: 

Quote:The Quaternary glaciation, also known as the Pleistocene glaciation or the current ice age, is a series of glacial events separated by interglacial events during the Quaternary period from 2.58 Ma (million years ago) to present.[1]

In other words, one link is contradicting the other.  

We were never taught this in grad school, and there was never any mention of this in the 80s, or even 90s about the Pleistocene having ended.   I suspect it is a smoke screen laid down by the AGW kooks, who wanted to get this on record as showing there to have been an end to the ice age, i.e. Pleistocene, with nothing but warming ahead.  

I'd love to find out the year and the cause for this change in the old school terms.   I wonder what year this thing happened?  I never heard about it before.

Quaternary Period was named BECAUSE of the Ice age stage It starts 2.5 Million years ago. It is correct.

From Wikipedia


Quote:The Quaternary Period follows the Neogene Period and extends to the present. The Quaternary covers the time span of glaciations classified as the Pleistocene, and includes the present interglacial time-period, the Holocene.


Your link is talking about GLACIATIONS,not Interglacial which is why they leave out the word Holocene in your link. Currently the Interglacial period we are in is called the Holocene,subdivided by short periods in it.

Massive Cover-up Exposed: 285 Papers From 1960s-’80s Reveal Robust Global Cooling Scientific ‘Consensus’

Selected Excerpts:
Quote:Beginning in 2003, software engineer William Connolley quietly removed the highly inconvenient references to the global cooling scare of the 1970s from Wikipedia, the world’s most influential and accessed informational source.
It had to be done.  Too many skeptics were (correctly) pointing out that the scientific “consensus” during the 1960s and 1970s was that the Earth had been cooling for decades, and that nascent theorizing regarding the potential for a CO2-induced global warming were still questionable and uncertain.

Not only did Connolley — a co-founder (along with Michael Mann and Gavin Schmidt) of the realclimate.com blog — successfully remove (or rewrite) the history of the 1970s global cooling scare from the Wikipedia record, he also erased (or rewrote) references to the Medieval Warm Period and Little Ice Age so as to help create the impression that the paleoclimate is shaped like Mann’s hockey stick graph, with unprecedented and dangerous 20th/21st century warmth.

A 2009 investigative report from UK’s Telegraph detailed the extent of dictatorial-like powers Connolley possessed at Wikipedia, allowing him to remove inconvenient scientific information that didn’t conform to his point of view.

and,


Quote:285 Scientific Publications Affirming A Global Cooling/Weak CO2 Influence ‘Consensus’

Again, there were at least 285 scientific publications that did not agree with the alleged CO2-warming “consensus” opinion during the 1960s to 1980s.  The list is divided into several sub-sections:

Cooling Since 1940, Forecasts for Continued Cooling/Ice Age (156 papers)
Dubious Human Influence on Climate, Low CO2 Climate Sensitivity (44 papers)
Rising CO2 Leads to Cooling (7)

Uncertainties, Lack of Climate Understanding, Climate Modeling Problems (30)

Miscellaneous Questionable Human, CO2 Influence on Climate (12)

Non-CO2 Climate Change Mechanisms (26)

Warmer past despite lower CO2 (10)

International Team of Specialists Finds No End in Sight to 30‐Year Cooling Trend in Northern Hemisphere

JAN. 5, 1978

By WALTER SULLIVAN

EXCERPT;

An international team of specialists has concluded from eight indexes of climate that there is no end in sight to the cooling trend of the last 30 years, at least in the Northern Hemisphere.

In some, but not all cases, the data extend through last winter. They include sea surface temperatures in the northcentral Pacific and north Atlantic, air temperatures at the surface and at various elevations as well as the extent of snow and ice cover at different seasons.

In almost all cases it has been found that the year‐to‐year variations in climate are far more marked than the long‐term trend. The long‐term trend often becomes evident only when data from a number of years are displayed.
