Since 1895, the media has alternated between global cooling and warming scares during four separate and sometimes overlapping time periods.
- From 1895 until the 1930’s the media peddled a coming ice age.
- From the late 1920’s until the 1960’s they warned of global warming.
- From the 1950’s until the 1970’s they warned us again of a coming ice age.
- This makes modern global warming the fourth estate’s fourth attempt to promote opposing climate change fears during the last 100 years.
