The Global Warming Cycle, What was Old is New

The global warming debate has caught fire (pun intended) and those who believe this tripe are dismissive of those of us they call deniers. They seem to believe that we only have ten years left and we will all burn to death if we do not do something and very soon. However, this same debate has been raging for nearly a century:

D.C. resident John Lockwood was conducting research at the Library of Congress and came across an intriguing Page 2 headline in the Nov. 2, 1922 edition of The Washington Post: “Arctic Ocean Getting Warm; Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt.”

The 1922 article, obtained by Inside the Beltway, goes on to mention “great masses of ice have now been replaced by moraines of earth and stones,” and “at many points well-known glaciers have entirely disappeared.” Washington Times

There are still seals and there are still icebergs and we are being told they are going away. Shouldn’t they already be gone? In between the last global warming scare and this one, there was a concern about a coming ice age where we would all freeze to death and none of these things have come to pass.

Speaking of global warming, not long ago NASA came down on one of its folks who expressed his belief about the subject. I imagine it would not have been an issue if he agreed with the whole global warming urgency issue. In any event, I wonder if NASA fudged these numbers or if they really made a mistake. Given the fact that they do not allow a dissenting opinion on the subject, maybe they were shilling for Al Gore to pump up his credibility. Imagine the embarrassment when someone figured out the error.

Then again, maybe they just made a mistake, sort of like buying into the global warming cause.
