The Business & Media Institute came out with a report called Fire & Ice back in May 2006 that chronicled the MSM's reporting of climate change, both Global Cooling and Global Warming, since 1895.
1895-1932 GLOBAL COOLING -First, in 1895, the New York Times warned their readers of the looming dangers of the new ice age where billions would die.
1929 - 1969 GLOBAL WARMING - The Global Cooling dangers lasted until the late 1920's when Global Warming became the danger. The MSM reported how the nation has entered into the "longest warm spell since 1776" The New York Times in 1959 reported that glaciers were melting in Alaska and the ice in the Arctic ocean is about half as thick as it was in the late nineteenth century. They also reported in 1960 that "the Arctic pack is is thinning and that the ocean at the North pole may become an open sea withing a decade of two". Sound familiar?
1954 - 1976 GLOBAL COOLING - There seems to be some overlap between these periods as the MSM moved back to Global Cooling. They predicted billions of people dying again. In 1970 the Washington Post told readers to " get a good grip on your long johns, cold weather haters - the worst may be yet to come". Fortune Magazine ran a story that said "As for the present cooling trend a number of leading climatologists have concluded that it is very bad news indeed" it continued with " It is the root cause of a lot of that unpleasant weather around the world and they warn that it carries the potential for human disasters of unprecedented magnitude".
Present - GLOBAL WARMING - Now we are in the current situation of being in a Global Warming crisis with Al Gore leading the way. "Our ability to live is what is at stake"
So you see, weather on this planet fluctuates. It always has and it always will.
It's done it for billions of years and humans have nothing to do with it.
