There is an article from Time magazine about catastrophic climate change at:


It says "In Africa, drought continues for the sixth consecutive year" and "record rains in parts of the U.S" and in Pakistan and Japan "the worst flooding in centuries" and it talks about bad weather devastating Canada's wheat belt, and it speaks of "the unexpected persistence and thickness of pack ice in the waters around Iceland" and most interesting of all it says that "Since the 1940s the mean global temperature has dropped about 2.7° F."

The Time magazine article is from Jun. 24, 1974 and is entitled "Another Ice Age?".

There may be an explanation for the global cooling panic, early industrialization caused lots of atmospheric particulate pollution that dimmed the sun and may have cooled the planet, but since that article was published there has been a big crackdown over that sort of pollution resulting in fewer particles in the atmosphere; so global warming may be caused by too little pollution.
