  1. Jeff K says:

    At least back then cooling was considered-and is-a negative to the human condition on this planet. Now, everything is upside-down.

    • Paul in Sweden says:

      Hey Jeff, more than 100 years ago the CO2 warmists thought completely different.

      By the influence of the increasing percentage of carbonic acid in the atmosphere, we may hope to enjoy ages with more equable and better climates, especially as regards the colder regions of the earth, ages when the earth will bring forth much more abundant crops than at present, for the benefit of rapidly propagating mankind.” (p63) – Das Werden der Welten (1907), English translation: Worlds in the Making (1908), Svante August Arrhenius

      BTW- What is the ideal global average temperature of the earth?

      • Mike Davis says:

        Warmer than it is at my place today. Yesterday was within a comfortable range and it is expected to return to Spring weather soon, but not today! 🙁

  2. Andy Weiss says:

    Why can’t tornadoes be accepted for what they are, a normal springtime happening in much of the US, instead of being tied to every kook’s interpretation of “climate change”. We went nearly 40 years without a huge tornado catastrophe, probably the longest such stretch in the last 150 years. We were way overdue for one.

    I think the moral of this story is be careful about getting your science from newsweek. See this article for some debunking: http://aerosol.ucsd.edu/classes/sio217a/sio217afall08-myth1970.pdf

  4. The highlighted text doesn’t support the full headline. Where’s the evidence that says climatologists are linking the tornadoes to cooling? You have highlighted some text but that is merely a weather observation, the link could be made by the journalist for all we know. There is no evidence here to say the link is made by climatologists, just an unsupported headline.

    • Paul in Sweden says:

      “There is no evidence here to say the link is made by climatologists”

      Hengist, back in 1975, the snake oil salesmen circling the public trough didn’t use the self-aggrandizing title of climatologist. It is my understanding that the self-appointed title “climatologist” became fashionable with sandwich boards proclaiming the end is nigh, tin foil hats and the IPCC a few years later.

      • Paul in Sweden you are just playing with words. Climatologists is in the headline. BTW You are wrong about the use of the word being self aggrandizing , State Climatologists have been appointed since 1954 http://weather.nmsu.edu/USClimat.htm

        Now, where is the evidence that climate scientists back in the 1970s connected tornadoes with global cooling, as suggested by the headline? It’s not there, ergo it’s a fallacious posting so perhaps the author could trouble himself to withdraw the posting .
