In April, 1975, in an issue mostly taken up with stories about the collapse of the American-backed government of South Vietnam, NEWSWEEK published a small back-page article about a very different kind of disaster. Citing "ominous signs that the earth's weather patterns have begun to change dramatically," the magazine warned of an impending "drastic decline in food production." Political disruptions stemming from food shortages could affect "just about every nation on earth." Scientists urged governments to consider emergency action to head off the terrible threat of . . . well, if you had been following the climate-change debates at the time, you'd have known that the threat was: global cooling.

The cause of these periodic climatic shifts is still being studied and debated, but many scientists believe they are influenced by small changes in the Earth's orbit around the Sun (including its "eccentricity," or the extent to which it deviates from a perfect circle) and the tilt of its rotation

I remember as a kid in the 70's that the temperature didn't get above 80 for 5 years straight, and I lived in Southwestern Ontario. Gore must have been living in Arizona at the time(100 plus everyday) to not notice.

There are so many factors that influence the climate, some we know about, some we suspect, and some we don't know about. The Milankovitch cycles mentioned above. The various solar cycles, cosmic rays, the positions of the continents (they move around very slowly, blocking or allowing currents from the equator to the polls). Cosmic rays, and of course, the composition of the atmosphere. Man's activities, volcanoes, and everything else that goes into deciding what the atmosphere will be on any given day.

The current "truthiness" or "scientism" (stuff that is faith based and not science), would have us believe that of all factors know, unknown, and guessed at, that it is the composition of the atmosphere alone that decides what the climate will be like. They go further still, discounting all non-human factors, and weighting the human so that it alone stands as the reason that the climate in changing.

For example, most of the devotees of the Church of Environmentology do not know, or willfully ignore the fact that if the continents were positioned such that there was a free flow of water to the poles, there would be no polar ice caps. True scientific facts like this do not fit in with their world view, so they are suppressed.

In real science, nothing is suppressed. Real scientists do not try to silence people. Priests might try it though, they have in the past. Real scientists do not try to ruin people's reputations; the Catholic Church would call that excommunication, don't know what name the Environmentologists give to that rite.

Yeah, I grew up in that part of Ontario too. Stratford.
