Study: 'We construct a geo-referenced and digitized database of conflicts in Europe, North Africa, and the Near East from 1400-1900, which we merge with historical temperature data. We show that cooling is associated with increased conflict.'
'A graph based on official data shows that snow extent in the northern hemisphere last autumn was the second greatest on record since 1967, and that five of the snowiest have come since 2010.'
Global temperatures 'have already plummeted from their 2016 peak by 0.5 degrees, even before the current has fully reversed itself into a cooling La Niña. By this time next year, we can expect all those excitable propagandists to have gone very much quieter.'
New York Times - July 12, 1976 - 'Climatologists Forecast Stormy Economic Future' - 'They believe that the earth's climate has moved into a cooling cycle, which means highly erratic weather for decades to come. And that, they say, has profound implications -- most of them bad -- for world food production, economic stability and social order. With the world's population now so high, the results in even minor year-to-year shifts in climate, could be catastrophic, they say"
'Skeptical Scientists': "Some scientists think all that is nonsense, mainly because climatologists can offer no scientific proof to back up their theories. If meteorologists, using sophisticated computers, can forecast weather only a day or two in advance, they ask, how can climatologists project climate years ahead? "It's interesting," said one skeptical scientist. "But some of their stuff is right out of fantasy land."
