1970s Global Cooling Alarmism
- During the 1970s the media promoted global cooling alarmism with dire threats of a new ice age. Extreme weather events were hyped as signs of the coming apocalypse and man-made pollution was blamed as the cause. Environmental extremists called for everything from outlawing the internal combustion engine to communist style population controls. This media hype was found in newspapers, magazines, books and on television.
I was 19 on the first Earth Day. Banners warning about the Coming Ice Age were center stage at UConn. I believed this crap for a few years. Now I see another generation trying to force their religious beliefs on the people.
Fool me once, blah blah blah.
