    120 years of climate scare

    Scientists seeking funding and journalists seeking an audience agree: panic sells.

    “Global cooling is going to kills us all!” “No, wait: global warming is going to kill us all!”

    All that’s  missing is a back-and-forth of “You shut up!” “No, you shut up!” That is reserved for those who doubt the need for panic.

    That’s the gist of an amazing chronology of the last 120 years of scare-mongering on climate, assembled by and reprinted by the estimable Anthony Watts in Wattsupwiththat, who updates it to the present. It is truly mind-boggling:

           1895 - Geologists Think the World May Be Frozen Up Again – New York Times, February 1895
           1902 - “Disappearing Glaciers…deteriorating slowly, with a persistency that means their final annihilation…scientific fact…surely disappearing.” – Los Angeles Times
           1912 - Prof. Schmidt Warns Us of an Encroaching Ice Age – New York Times, October 1912
           1923 - “Scientist says Arctic ice will wipe out Canada” – Professor Gregory of Yale University, American representative to the Pan-Pacific Science Congress, – Chicago Tribune
           1923 - “The discoveries of changes in the sun’s heat and the southward advance of glaciers in recent years have given rise to conjectures of the possible advent of a new ice age” – Washington Post
           1924 - MacMillan Reports Signs of New Ice Age – New York Times, Sept 18, 1924
           1929 - “Most geologists think the world is growing warmer, and that it will continue to get warmer” – Los Angeles Times, in Is another ice age coming?
