Study debunks 'global cooling' concern of '70s
The supposed "global cooling" consensus among scientists in the 1970s — frequently offered by global-warming skeptics as proof that climatologists can't make up their minds — is a myth, according to a survey of the scientific literature of the era.
But Thomas Peterson of the National Climatic Data Center surveyed dozens of peer-reviewed scientific articles from 1965 to 1979 and found that only seven supported global cooling, while 44 predicted warming. Peterson says 20 others were neutral in their assessments of climate trends.
"A review of the literature suggests that, to the contrary, greenhouse warming even then dominated scientists' thinking about the most important forces shaping Earth's climate on human time scales."
Gulf Stream Will Not Shut Down, Science Magazines Admit

Put away your snow shovels, ear muffs, and portable indoor heaters, scientists now say, because global warming will not trigger a new ice age after all.
Putting to rest nearly a decade of scare scenarios involving polar ice caps quickly reclaiming Canada, the northern United States, and northern and central Europe, scientists now report there is no chance of the Gulf Stream shutting down any time soon, regardless of any predicted global warming.
Science magazine, New Scientist, and other scientific publications reported in November 2006 that new research shows no recent slowdown in the Gulf Stream.
Moreover, reported the November 7 New Scientist, "models of the North Atlantic show that a shutdown would not occur in the way oceanographers had expected."
If I can bring anything to the ATS community, it is to help others to look past rhetoric and choreographed reports that try to disguise politics as science. once someone has learned to do that, the world is transparent to them. You don't need a degree to understand the world, only a open mind.
