Scientists have known for 115 years that catastrophic global warming theory is junk science.
In 1971, NASA’s top climatologists still understood that CO2 had very limited ability to warm the atmosphere, just as Knut Angstrom pointed out seventy years earlier. NASA was warning in 1971 that burning fossil fuels would cause a new ice age.
Schneider took his ice age theory directly to President Nixon, and was very upset that Nixon didn’t take action against global cooling.
Scientists had some brilliant plans how to stop global cooling, like melting the polar ice caps.
As late as 1977, Schneider was still pushing the global cooling scam.
However, by 1978 Schneider switched from pushing the global cooling scam to pushing the global warming scam. I prepared a chart below to explain his reasoning.
Atmospheric temperatures correspond almost perfectly with the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO) but they show little if any correlation to CO2. When the AMO shifted in the mid-1970’s Schneider realized there was no longer any money being made pushing global cooling, so he switched his profession from cooling scamster to warming scamster.
