Obama Says It Was Better In The 1970’s

May 9, 2014

By Paul Homewood


Back in 1974, the White House were so concerned about the impact of climatic fluctuations that it set up a special Sub Committee on Climate Change. At the time, of course, the climate had been cooling since about 1945, as HH Lamb confirms, and in particular the Arctic and higher latitudes, which had warmed up by “several degrees” between 1920 and 1940, had become significantly colder.


Among the negative impacts they identified were these:




They could also have added record numbers of tornadoes, the coldest winter on record in the States, the wettest year there, and perturbations to the jet stream which brought unseasonably cold weather on one side and unseasonably warm weather on the other,droughts and floods.


Now the Liar in Chief wants us all to return to those days and pay for the privilege. I wonder why?

    Mr Obama has an agenda and I don’t thinjk it is be remembered as the most intelligent President ever, how the MSM have allowed him to survive this long I still can’t comprehend.

    I know this is off topic but this could be a very important paper that completely kills Man Made Global Warming.
    It shows that water vapour and CO2 do NOT obey the blackbody laws of Kirchhoff, Planck, and Stefan-Boltzmann.

    I like this comment on Climate Depot
    I think that says it all about Mr Obama, he has a God complex.

    I bit like King Canute. LOL

    Which came first, your well-founded skepticism on AGW or your profound but not so well founded and irrational hatred of Obama?

    “Obama Says It Was Better In The 1970’s”

    I reckon if I had spent my teenage years in 1970s Hawaii I might well agree with him!

    in the 70’s Hubert Lamb and others were ”predicting” Nuclear Winter effect by year 2000 from the CO2 ”DIMMING” effect; therefore: they were massaging the numbers then as if it was getting colder, same as now, they are massaging the numbers to appear as if is getting warmer – climatologist din’t start to tell lies in the 80’s – lying goes with the profession:

    I believe the biggest news from the 1970’s in the eastern 2/3rds of the USA were the 3 consecutive severe winters from 1977 thru 1979, which were unprecedented, even going back to the LIA. In Waterloo, IA,those were their top 3 coldest winters on record, many other places they were all in the top ten.

    1974 was also Australia’s wettest year and 2nd coldest max mean. It was also the year of Australia’s most devasting cyclone, Tracey.
