1871 : New York Times Terrified About Climate Change

Real Science


But at least one newspaper got it right in 1871. The Brisbane Courier recognized that belief in “climate change” reflected nothing other than human stupidity.

We have often noticed that in the tabular statements of those compilers of weather records who write to the Times, useful and welcome as their communications are, every season is sure to be “extraordinary,” almost every month one of the driest or wettest, or windiest, coldest or hottest, ever known. Much observation, which ought to correct a tendency to exaggerate, seems in some minds to have rather a tendency to increase it.

10 Jan 1871 – IMAGINARY CHANGES OF CLIMATE. (Pall Mall Gazette.)

Nothing has changed, other than the fact that the climate change stupidity has propagated to the highest levels of the autocracy.

In 1999, Hansen wrote that the US was not warming or getting more extreme.

Empirical evidence does not lend much support to the notion that climate is headed precipitately toward more extreme heat and drought. The drought of 1999 covered a smaller area than the 1988 drought, when the Mississippi almost dried up. And 1988 was a temporary inconvenience as compared with repeated droughts during the 1930s “Dust Bowl” that caused an exodus from the prairies, as chronicled in Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath.

in the U.S. there has been little temperature change in the past 50 years, the time of rapidly increasing greenhouse gases — in fact, there was a slight cooling throughout much of the country

Historical Temperature Trends In Antarctica


By Paul Homewood






SPPI have just published “Historical Temperature Trends In Antarctica”, which gives an overview of recent studies of temperature trends from the ice age to the present day. The paper is 14 pages long, but I will try to sum up the main points here.

The first section summarises the glacial periods, really making the, now well established, point that temperature changes preceded CO2 changes, and did not follow. As I say, this is now well established, so I will move on to the next section.
