Elmer på Minnesotans For Global Warming har en intressant video-post om hur hotet om en ny istid beskrevs 1976 i populärvetenskapliga TV-serien In Search Of. Tydligen medverkade en nu ledande företrädare för global warming, Stephen Schneider. Se direktlänk till sekvensen.
"Schneider's been trying unsuccessfully to put that genie back in the bottle for years, and his words will live forever in the alarmist Hall of Shame. The Schneider segment is in Part Three, and his role in the show is to share his opinion on whether or not it would be wise to take measures to stop the predicted coming ice age, or more specifically, using nuclear power to loosen polar icecaps, and helping sea ice melt by covering it with black soot."
I programmet säger Schneider:
"Can we do these things? Yes. But will they make things better? I'm not sure. We can't predict with any certainty what's happening to our own climatic future. How can we come along and intervene then in that ignorance? You could melt the icecaps. What would that do to the coastal cities? The cure could be worse than the disease. Would that better or worse than the risk of an ice age?
It's the interaction between people and climate that worries me the most, because with everyone jammed into countries, locked into national boundaries, a change in climate means a redistribution of where the rain is, where the growing seasons are. My worst fear is that the climate could induce a change in some country that could be devastating to their local survivability, and that would lead them to desperate acts that can drag everybody else down."
Det är denna sorts Chicken Little-profiler som FN-chefen, Reinfeldt m fl nu följer.
