Global Fonzie

Too many environmental pundits are unaware of how afraid many (not all) scientists were of catastrophic global cooling in the 1970s.

However, one reporter from the era commented on CBC's As It Happens tonight that, as near as I recall his quote, "The Earth goes through cycles, there was in Ice Age 10 000 years ago. There's reason to wonder that if mankind hadn't learned how to burn coal and oil, we'd be entering into another Ice Age right now."

Wow.

I remember hearing about that.

In grade school I also remember being told that by 2005 we'd run out of oil...
