Früher hatte man Angst vor der Eiszeit - Schlagzeilen (englisch) aus den 70er Jahren

It is my understanding that it was all due to one article in time magazine…..however:
1970s: Every major climate organization endorsed the ice age scare, including NCAR, CRU, NAS, NASA, as did the CIA.
1970s: ‘Fears of a coming ice age showed up in peer-reviewed literature, at scientific conferences, by prominent scientists and throughout the media’
February, 1973: Science Digest: “the world’s climatologists are agreed” that we must “prepare for the next ice age.”
1971: NASA warned of human caused coming ‘ice age’.
Flashback 1971: Hansen’s climate model says ice age to occur by 2021
July 9, 1971: The Washington Post, Times Herald: The world could be as little as 50 or 60 years away from a disastrous new ice age, a leading atmospheric scientist predicts. Dr. S. I. Rasool of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and Columbia University.
Flashback 1972: CRU Chief Hubert Lamb of U. of East Anglia said in an Associated Press article that Earth Would Definitely Cool Over The Next Two Centuries
1975: National Academy of Sciences Issued Report Warning of Coming Ice Age.
May 21, 1975, New York Times: Scientists Ask Why World Climate Is Changing; Major Cooling May Be Ahead; Scientists Ponder Why World’s Climate Is Changing; a Major Cooling Widely Considered to Be Inevitable
Flashback 1975 New York Times: Climate Experts Said That Jumbo Jets Would Cool The Planet And Produce Global Famine
1964: CRU Director Hubert Lamb Predicted Little Ice Age for Britain.
1972: CRU Director Hubert Lamb of U. of East Anglia Predicted A New Ice Age: ‘We are in a definite downhill course for the next two centuries.’
1974: Office of Research and Development of the Central Intelligence Agency produced a report entitled “A Study of Climatological Research as it Pertains to Intelligence Problems”: “The western world’s leading climatologists have confirmed recent reports of a detrimental global climate change. The stability of most nations is based upon a dependable source of food, but this stability will not be possible under the new (colder) climatic era. A forecast by the University of Wisconsin projects that the earth’s climate is returning to that of the neo-boreal era (little ice age) (1600- 1850) – an era of drought, famine and political unrest in the western world.
November 22, 1974 (AAP-Reuters, London) Science Documentary: “New ice age could be in our lifetime” “The threat of a new ice age must now stand alongside nuclear war as a likely source of wholesale death and misery for mankind.” “Present international cooperation in meteorology was a hopeful sign that man might be able to alter the weather pattern in some way and meet the challenge of the ice.”
1974: Global Cooling To Kill One Billion People. ‘Dr. Reid Bryson, a U. of Wisconsin climatologist, fears that climatic changes (cooling) now in progress will eventually affect the whole human population – ‘like a billion people dying,’ he says
1975: World Meteorological Organization: Global Cooling Causes More Extreme Weather
1977 book “The Weather Conspiracy: The Coming of the New Ice Age” – CIA Feared Global Cooling – Excerpt: In the early 1970s, top CIA thinkers concluded that changing (cooling) weather was “perhaps the greatest single challenge that America will face in coming years”. As a result they ordered several studies of the world’s climate, the likely changes to come and their probably effect on America and the rest of the world. The studies conclude that the world is entering a difficult period…
August 8, 1974: New York Times: “Climate Changes Endanger World’s Food Output,” Excerpt: A recent meeting of climate experts in Bonn, West Germany, produced the UNANIMOUS conclusion that the (cooling) change in global weather patterns pose a severe threat to agriculture that could lead to major crop failures and mass starvation.
January 25, 1975: Science News National Academy of Sciences Report on Global Climate Change: “We may be approaching the end of a major interglacial cycle, with the approach of a full-blown 10,000-year ice age.”
1975: Walter Orr Roberts of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR): The Earth may have entered a new “little ice age”. There are strong signs that these recent climate disasters were not random deviations from the usual weather, but instead signals of the emergence of a new normal for world climates.
August 14, 1975: New York Times: “many signs that the Earth may be heading for another ice age.”
December 10, 1976: Science Magazine: heading “toward extensive Northern Hemisphere glaciation.”
1976 Book: “The Cooling: Has the Next Ice Age Already Begun” By Lowell Ponte – Excerpt: “This cooling has already killed hundreds of thousands of people. If it continues and no strong action is taken, it will cause world famine, world chaos and world war, and this could all come about before the year 2000.”
