- In the 1970's, it was 'global cooling', and evil capitalist polluters were bringing on a new ice age that would kill us all. By the year 2000, we would all be dead and buried under glaciers. - In the 1980's, it was 'ozone holes', and evil capitalist polluters were opening up our world to cancerous radiation that would kill us all. By the year 2000 we would see billions dying of skin cancer and the rest would be killed in droughts and mass starvation from crop failures. In the 1990's, it was 'global warming', and evil capitalist polluters were causing catastrophic heating that would kill us all. By 2010, the world would be stiflingly hot and the floods from rising seas would engulf coastal cities killing billions.

Check your reading comprehension. I pointed out that the liberal 'scientists' were predicting that POLLUTION was bringing a new ice age. They predicted that by the year 2000, we'd be in record cold temps and billions would be dead. NONE of that came to pass... just as the ozone threat disappeared... just like the global warming has gone... just like the 'carbon' theories will be gone. Sooner or later, they'll find something else to act as their quixotic windmill.

Your next ice age may or may not happen, and it will likely take hundreds or even thousands of years to manifest. Mankind might be able to stop it simply by spreading soil or other dark colored material on the ice (absorbing more sunlight instead of reflecting it away).

The coming ice age is not nonsense at all. It's VERY real. Your mention of it not coming to pass yet makes no sense in geologic time. It's like standing on a smoking St. Helens weeks before it blew, and after a day saying "see, I told you it wasn't going to erupt."

That said, the politicals who cite such things, including the coming ice age, are doing so as you say, purely for political control, to get money and to get power.

From 2000 to present, NONE of their absurd prophecies have come to pass. Now they've changed their terminology to "climate change". Every storm, earthquake, flood, hurricane, and indeed everything harmful to man is now deemed to be caused by 'climate change'.

ALL of this nonsense is fed with obscene amounts of our tax dollars. NONE of it is fed with any kind of honest scientific methodology. It is pure leftist political agenda designed to gather followers against an imaginary army of polluting ghouls and demons who are determined to poison the planet.

Silly when you look at it from the outside, but those embroiled in it are truly convinced and will follow it like cultist fools.

Actually, the ice age theory is the real deal. That is coming, it's just a matter of time, and it will be the biggest event in the history of the human race. There were very few of us to feed the last time around. This one will be near-apocalyptic.

Climate experts from United Kingdom’s National Weather Service told the world that while is was not unusual for pauses in global warming that last for a decade to occur once every eighty years or so, there was no way that one could last for 15 years or more according to their climate model.

Oops. Their mistake, I guess.

Maybe that’s why when the United Kingdom’s National Weather Service updated their data and it showed that global warming has been paused for the last 16 years, they remained mum.

“The world stopped getting warmer almost 16 years ago, according to new...
