Lakeland Ledger - December 29, 1974: 'Jule Charney, professor of meteorology at M.I.T.: 'I don't think we can predict climate now and I wouldn't trust anyone who said he could. The atmosphere is just too complex to take some of these vague statistics and try to use them to predict with. You can always find a single physical mechanism that will 'cause' one thing or another, it just gets too complicated...Anyone who says he can tell you more than a few days ahead of time what the weather is going to be is practicing necromancy.' (A form of magic involving communication with the dead)
Joseph Smagorinsky, director of the laboratory (the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton N.J.) agrees: "There are all sorts of natural climatic cycles we don't understand yet. One man's trend is simply another man's periodicity -- it just depends on whether you are using a telescope or a microscope. To go directly from a hand-waving hypothesis to contingency plans for moving six million people is a little frightening."
