Over the last months, Steve Goddard has dug up a number of clippings from old newspapers showing stories of catastrophic climate change going to the early 20th century.
Here’s one I found from 1947, 30 years before the satellite measurements showed a massively frozen Arctic and the media bedwetted about “global cooling”.

It’s possible Mr Goddard has already posted this one. If so, then it doesn’t hurt to remind people of what nature does on it’s own and that today’s Arctic condition is nothing new. Note how the language is the same as what we hear from the media and climate institutes today. Like today, it was surely effective fund-raising back then as well.
