A HISTORY OF CLIMATE SCARES AT THE NEW YORK TIMES — 1978: “NO END IN SIGHT TO 30-YEAR COOLING TREND,” 1988: “GLOBAL WARMING HAS BEGUN”
NASA’s James Hansen started the global warming scare during the very hot summer of 1988.
The New York Times reported the following on June 24, 1988:
Until now, scientists have been cautious about attributing rising global temperatures of recent years to the predicted global warming caused by pollutants in the atmosphere, known as the ”greenhouse effect.”
But today Dr. James E. Hansen of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration told a Congressional committee that it was 99 percent certain that the warming trend was not a natural variation but was caused by a buildup of carbon dioxide and other artificial gases in the atmosphere.
But what credibility can the New York Times have left?
For decades prior, the publication was scaremongering about the opposite climatic catastrophe: Global Cooling.
Below is an article from 1961, where the NYT is bracing citizens of the U.S. for a colder world:
The global scientific consensus is that the world “is getting colder,” reads one paragraph.
By the following decade, the rhetoric had been ramped-up.
At the start of the 1970s, the NYT ran with this front page story:
Scientists at the time were worried about expanding polar ice.
By the end of the 70s, rather than acknowledging they had perhaps gone a tad overboard, the publication actually doubled-down on its catastrophic cooling narrative:
The thermometer data of the time (shown below) reveals that between 1900-1940 the Northern Hemisphere (in this case) experienced stark warming, and then from 1941-1970 (in fact to 1980) suffered substantial cooling.
These temperature changes were obviously natural, driven by forcings such as solar activity and ocean currents.
The likes of NOAA and NASA have since erased these natural waxings and wanings from the temperature records.
This is exposed here: Natural climate variations have been used to control populations and sell newspapers for a century+ — and let us hope this repeated ‘crying wolf’ doesn’t come back to bite us when a genuine threat arises.
This scare, however, unlike the ones preceding it, has a far more sinister twist.
Today, rising carbon dioxide levels –so therefore every human on the planet– is being blamed. This is brilliant in its maleficence, but will also be judged by history as the greatest fraud ever perpetuated on the human race.
When devising his now infamous temperature forecast from 1988, Hansen came-up with three CO2 emissions scenarios.
Scenario A was based on increasing CO2 emission growth rates, or “Business As Usual.”
Scenario B was based on a reduction (moderate) of CO2 emission growth rates.
And Scenario C was based on CO2 emissions being reduced (capped) to year 2000 levels.
Temps have almost perfectly tracked Scenario C: “GHG/CO2 reduced to year 2000 levels.”
Think of all those costly carbon initiatives that have been rolled-out around the world since 1988, when we could have done nothing and achieved the same results.
Here’s Hansen’s original graph overlaid with the satellite lower troposphere reading in red (Tony Heller):Hansen testified to congress indicating that we would be 1.5C above baseline by early 2020.But real-world satellite observations had us at around 0.5C above baseline in early 2020.And since then, the average global temperature has plummeted to -0.05C BELOW baseline:
What an expensive and wholly-exhausting waste of time “global warming” turned out to be.
Climate is cyclic, never linear — the next epoch due is one of cooling, and no amount of cow farts will avert it.
The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).
Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.

Grand Solar Minimum + Pole Shift
ONE THOUGHT TO “A HISTORY OF CLIMATE SCARES AT THE NEW YORK TIMES — 1978: “NO END IN SIGHT TO 30-YEAR COOLING TREND,” 1988: “GLOBAL WARMING HAS BEGUN””
I’m convinced that the sharp drop in temperatures between circa. 1945 and 1975 was mainly caused by the Pacific Decadal Oscillation being in a negative phase. It turned positive in the late 1970’s, hence warming up to 2015. Since it has a cycle of aprox. 35 years it is likely to be negative from now until roughly 2050, so we are likely to see cooling of 0.1 or 0.2 degrees per decade. This is in addition to the cooling that is highly likely to occour due to the Solar Grand Minimum. We are on course for a double whammy of solar cooling and ocean cycle cooling, without considering the Atlantic Multi Decadal Oscillation which is likely to enter a cooling phase pretty soon although the effects may not be as great as the Pacific oscillation.
