In the 70's, if they had done this, a whole generation would have been taught that the Earth was going to be in another ice age.
So many here are under the impression that the science is settled. That we shouldn't question convention, that we shouldn't think outside the box.
We are teaching children to obey. We aren't teaching them to question.

Show me how many scientists in the 70s claimed a concern about global cooling (never mind an "ice age").
Then show me how many scientists in the 70s were concerned about warming caused by CO2.
Use any means at your disposal.

in reference to the global cooling conspiracy.
In 1977, a popular book on the topic was published, called The Weather Conspiracy: The Coming of the New Ice Age. There were also a US TV show narrated by Leonard Nimoy in the 1977 In Search of... (TV series), episode 27, season 2, titled, "The Coming Ice Age: An inquiry into whether the dramatic weather changes in America's northern states mean that a new ice age is approaching. There was also a popular short science fiction story...I forget the name but I believe it was by Isaac asimov or at least in one of his science fiction story anthologies by another author. In general there were only a couple of studies maybe 2 and a handful of scientists, like maybe 6-12 that held this theory of global cooling.
compare that to today were there are thousands of scientists and just on NaSA's website there is a listing of over 200 scientific organizations that hold the theory that there IS man made global warming.
The question is always the same are all of those 200 organizations and the thousands of people the work for them in on a giant conspiracy bigger than any other conspiracy the earth has ever known? Occam's razor would tell us no...it's improbably. Spock (the above mentioned Leonord Nimoy's character) would tell us that this probability would be highly illogical and unlikely.
