Those "fringe" papers made it to major news outlets and publications and were widely accepted in the general population.
It was alarmist and irresponsible.
But it also mirrors the same trends we are seeing today.
“The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.”

“Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”

Misconception my big latino rear end, this was the propaganda during the 60s and 70s, perhaps a littler research will refresh your memory.
Selling earth natural cycles and blaming humans for earth farts in order to see if money can be made has been going on for a long time.
People just tend to have such short time memories
no wonder the government wants to control the internet so bad so people will never find out about the truth, dumb people are easier to manipulate than the well informed ones.

Actually the scam behind blaming CO2 (that actually is the earth coolant) is in order to be able to profit from selling carbon tax credits.
Don't you know that taxing CO2 for profits is not going to help anything but fatten the pockets of the profiteers of global warming?
We need green initiatives but not at the expenses of taxing anything
If CO2 were so bad why the profiteers wants to sell credits?
think, think, is a scam to make money.
I rely my sources on information that doesn't have "global warming propaganda all over it, I rely in the actual history of earth cycles and nothing in the cycles of earth shows that we earth is doing nothing different from what it has done for millennia.
Plain and simple.
When in a few years earth starts to get colder than usual the profiteers will blame pollution again that is blocking the sun from warming the earth, I can not wait for the next scheme to make money.
You can not erase historical fact in the span of millions of years, but you can manipulate todays data to scare the population.

Grimpachi, putting the debate aside, I agree, we need to take care of our earth, we need to get all together and work on preserving our beloved resources.
Is not doubt that we need to do that, but please Grimpachi, inform yourself of the real scam behind the global warming, because what people do not understand is that is been used to generate profits, scams are been created because is easy to scare people to death in order to sell them a snake oil fix.
The names behind the global warming scam should be enough for you to be worry about what they are planning.
Recently, I presented very strong evidence here that Carbon Dioxide is absolutely NOT a so called "Greenhouse Gas".... The findings of recent studies, including one conducted by the fraud artists at NASA have shown definitive proof that Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is actually a coolant, and that in spite of the claims made by the scam artists behind the Global Warming fraud, CO2 increases in our atmosphere does not lead to increase in world wide temperatures.... Therefore the scam of "Carbon Taxes" to curb CO2 accumulations in our atmosphere is a complete sham....
It does indeed appear that the fraud artists have caught wind to the idea that people are realizing that CO2 is not a so called "Greenhouse Gas" as has been claimed for almost a 1/2 century.... And they are therefore having to quickly now come up with another "culprit" for their Global Warming scam....

yep , and also the same ones who jet around the globe crying the end is near and ya gotta pay carbon taxes or we'll all die .
Misconceptions?... first of all, who the hell is that guy?... Some random guy claiming all of that without showing any proof, and you actually think this video debunks anything at all?...
First of all, even the main AGW proponents were mailing each other messages that they couldn't account for the lack of warming... They also mailed each other "tricks" to use such as taking out data points which showed cooling, etc, etc.
There have been studies that show northern hemisphere temperatures from 2,000 years ago and the trend has been cooling. It was warmer during the Medieval, the Roman and the Minoan warming periods. BTW, yes the Earth has been warming since the 1600s, but it hasn't and it isn't warmer than it was during past warming cycles.
Not to mention that it is a fact that the Earth has been warming since the early 1600s, almost 300 years before the height of the industrial revolution.
So, you, and your friend did not debunk anything at all Grimpachi. This just shows desperation on your part.
