It goes something like this: The entire purpose of this myth is to suggest that scientists can’t be trusted, that they will say/claim/predict whatever to get their names in the newspapers, and that the media falls for it all the time.
They were wrong about ice ages in the 1970s, they are wrong now about global warming. Since, according to the fake-skeptics, there was so much news coverage of the imminent ice age why not just use a real 1970s cover?
In the middle of the pulsating city is Central Park, an oasis offering glorious parklands to explore.
Alternatively, take the Staten Island ferry for striking views of Manhattan or stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge, which was the longest suspension bridge in the world when it opened in 1883.
The other 55% must think we’re still in the 1970s when scientists were still debating the issue.
Seems newsworthy to me, maybe Time will run another cover story on it.Just the other day I was speaking to a climate change skeptic who made mention of an old Time or Newsweek (he was not sure) article that talked about fears of a coming ice age.There were in fact a number of articles back in the 1970s that discussed the whole Ice Age problem, and I’m not sure what my friend was referring to.They totally ignore the rest of the picture of 1970s climate science: that increasing CO2 would cause global warming.The purpose of the image of the two Time magazine covers, and of the Coming Ice Age Myth, is not to show the real history of climate science, but to obscure that history and to cause confusion. Because today, when there really is a consensus about climate science and 97% of climatologists agree that adding CO2 to the atmosphere is leading to climate change, only 45% of the public know about that consensus.But here, David Kirtley places a recent meme that seems to be an attempt to diffuse concern about global warming because we used to be worried about global cooling. And, David places the argument that Ice Age Fears were important and somehow obviate the science in context.
