I wrote this piece on May 10, 2011. It was a look back at 1975 media coverage of global weather:

Inventing media reality

Here comes global cooling

May 10, 2011

I offer this piece, not to dig into the science, but to show how strong the media effect is. Thirty-five years ago, newspapers and magazines were drumming up support for a global cooling scare.

Notice the language in this April 28, 1975, Newsweek article, “The Cooling World,” by Peter Gwynne. It has the same rhythms today’s warming pieces display, the same transitions, the same reliance, of course, on experts.

It’s all about INVENTING REALITY, because the 1975 Newsweek reporter—or today’s highly confident journalists and smirking pundits—have no idea what they’re talking about. They’re simply taking their cues from people they accept as experts. And then fabricating the whole business. Cooling, warming—none of them [journalists] has ever really thought about the state of the science. None of them has even turned a layman’s mind, armed with some degree of logic, to the statements and methods of the climate researchers. They’re personally clueless.

Their editorial meetings should really go this way: “Okay, boys, we’ve got the quotes from the expert researchers, so now we know which way to go. It’s cooling (or warming). From here on out, make it up. Make it sound somber, inject apprehension and fear, you know how it works. We want that dignified tone in our pieces. Of course, we have no idea what the hell we’re doing. Not really. We’re just the messengers. But who cares? Give it your best shot. Invent reality.”

Newsweek, April 28, 1975. The ironies in this piece, knowing what we know now about the warming media campaign, are so thick you’ll need a de-fogger. And if you think the subsequent media shift from cooling to warming was simply a matter of discovering new iron-clad data, I have a villa in the center of the Arctic I’m dying to sell you. Here is the 1975 Newsweek article:

“There are ominous signs that the Earth’s weather patterns have begun to change dramatically and that these changes may portend a drastic decline in food production – with serious political implications for just about every nation on Earth. The drop in food output could begin quite soon, perhaps only 10 years from now. The regions destined to feel its impact are the great wheat-producing lands of Canada and the U.S.S.R. in the North, along with a number of marginally self-sufficient tropical areas – parts of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indochina and Indonesia – where the growing season is dependent upon the rains brought by the monsoon.”

“The evidence in support of these predictions has now begun to accumulate so massively [!] that meteorologists are hard-pressed to keep up with it. In England, farmers have seen their growing season decline by about two weeks since 1950, with a resultant overall loss in grain production estimated at up to 100,000 tons annually. During the same time, the average temperature around the equator has risen by a fraction of a degree – a fraction that in some areas can mean drought and desolation. Last April, in the most devastating outbreak of tornadoes ever recorded, 148 twisters killed more than 300 people and caused half a billion dollars’ worth of damage in 13 U.S. states.”

“To scientists, these seemingly disparate incidents represent the advance signs of fundamental changes in the world’s weather. The central fact is that after three quarters of a century of extraordinarily mild conditions, the earth’s climate seems to be cooling down. Meteorologists disagree about the cause and extent of the cooling trend, as well as over its specific impact on local weather conditions. But they are almost unanimous in the view that the trend will reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century. If the climatic change is as profound as some of the pessimists fear, the resulting famines could be catastrophic. ‘A major climatic change would force economic and social adjustments on a worldwide scale,’ warns a recent report by the National Academy of Sciences, ‘because the global patterns of food production and population that have evolved are implicitly dependent on the climate of the present century’.”

“A survey completed last year by Dr. Murray Mitchell of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reveals a drop of half a degree in average ground temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere between 1945 and 1968. According to George Kukla of Columbia University, satellite photos indicated a sudden, large increase in Northern Hemisphere snow cover in the winter of 1971-72. And a study released last month by two NOAA scientists notes that the amount of sunshine reaching the ground in the continental U.S. diminished by 1.3% between 1964 and 1972.”

“To the layman, the relatively small changes in temperature and sunshine can be highly misleading. Reid Bryson of the University of Wisconsin points out that the Earth’s average temperature during the great Ice Ages was only about seven degrees lower than during its warmest eras – and that the present decline has taken the planet about a sixth of the way toward the Ice Age average. Others regard the cooling as a reversion to the ‘little ice age’ conditions that brought bitter winters to much of Europe and northern America between 1600 and 1900 – years when the Thames used to freeze so solidly that Londoners roasted oxen on the ice and when iceboats sailed the Hudson River almost as far south as New York City.”

“Just what causes the onset of major and minor ice ages remains a mystery. ‘Our knowledge of the mechanisms of climatic change is at least as fragmentary as our data,’ concedes the National Academy of Sciences report. ‘Not only are the basic scientific questions largely unanswered, but in many cases we do not yet know enough to pose the key questions’.”

“Meteorologists think that they can forecast the short-term results of the return to the norm of the last century. They begin by noting the slight drop in overall temperature that produces large numbers of pressure centers in the upper atmosphere. These break up the smooth flow of westerly winds over temperate areas. The stagnant air produced in this way causes an increase in extremes of local weather such as droughts, floods, extended dry spells, long freezes, delayed monsoons and even local temperature increases – all of which have a direct impact on food supplies.”

“’The world’s food-producing system,’ warns Dr. James D. McQuigg of NOAA’s Center for Climatic and Environmental Assessment, ‘is much more sensitive to the weather variable than it was even five years ago.’ Furthermore, the growth of world population and creation of new national boundaries make it impossible for starving peoples to migrate from their devastated fields, as they did during past famines.”

“Climatologists are pessimistic that political leaders will take any positive action to compensate for the climatic change, or even to allay its effects. They concede that some of the more spectacular solutions proposed, such as melting the Arctic ice cap by covering it with black soot or diverting arctic rivers, might create problems far greater than those they solve. But the scientists see few signs that government leaders anywhere are even prepared to take the simple measures of stockpiling food or of introducing the variables of climatic uncertainty into economic projections of future food supplies. The longer the planners delay, the more difficult will they find it to cope with climatic change once the results become grim reality.”

That’s Newsweek in 1975. Sounds like science, must BE science, right? What else do you want? You’ve got experts weighing in, plus standard journalistic sentences, plus familiar rhythm and flow. It all adds up to…credibility. And possibly, a few of you who’ve been living in Florida for the past 60 years have parkas, snow shoes, snow plows, and audiocassettes on igloo- building in a shed. You bought these items in 1975. Because reality was what media said it was. Just like now.

So buy extra sunscreen and line up for your COVID shot in the arm, with full confidence.

    Manufacturing causality to manipulate reality.

    • Armando Silvier says:

      From the article: “To scientists, these seemingly disparate incidents represent the advance signs of fundamental changes in the world’s weather.”

      Just as it is today, with the fabrications, dissimulations, nonscience and outright lies of the Establishment, their owners; and it’s complicit fascist media lapdogs. Looking for “signs” in the weather or in the air for “SARSNCOV2” is IDENTICAL to looking for “signs” of the future in freshly slaughtered chicken giblets; or praying to a piece of f**king wood or stone for “answers”.

      I’m not sure if Jon has done a series on this (most likely) at least from the Christian perspective; but, today’s prognosticators are no different than the idol priests and temple whores of ancient religions (the whores are the media).

      • Angry Horticulturist says:

        The bible was the media back in the day.

        You know, propagating subservience, misogyny, racism, etc. No difference.

        And the KJV, ironically, the most popular “bible”…associated with a guy who established corporate slavery.

        I also particularly like th e opening of the bible, which I’ve paraphrased before, with my crude analysis (which ardent Christians, might not appreciate, but don’t worry, I’m not attack you, only the false institutions you so believe in)…

        The parallels simply don’t end, do they?

        How does the “Bible” open? Essentially, God is lonely, so creates some kind of reject clone of himself. So from say, 1 is created, say 0.9 (inherent loss and entropy). Pretty soon, that reject clone of God, gets lonely too (quite predictably). Then, from a small piece of reject clone man, is created an even more rejected clone of a reject clone man. That is of course woman. Horribly disfigured, with an inverted, tiny penis. That’s what happens with clones and mutant entropic rejects. Oh and what’s the first thing the woman does? Of course, associates with “the big snake” while reject clone man wasn’t around. How convenient.

        So, right off the bat, the “Bible” shows sexism, misogyny and instills the idea of patronizing inferiority, women being stupid cheating whores essentially, as well as subservience.

        Well, I am lonely. But I certainly have no desire to make reject clones of myself (say, children, in a world which children should not be subjected to, considering the amount of bullshit), considering that I am supposedly a dejected rejected reject clone. The principles of entropy cannot be escaped and would not be lost on “God”…which, fundamentally makes the “bible” something of man’s arrogance, attempted control. Political tool. Thus, I cannot respect it, it’s an undermining subversive pile of horseshit.

  2. Arjan Kuiten says:

    Tip: Search iceage farmer on youtube. We are in for some nasty surprises when it comes to engineerd droughts and food shortages. Climate lockdowns are in the making.

    • Angry Horticulturist says:

      That guy is a somewhat delusional fearmonger, even if he means well…

      I can play that game too. Which is why I adjust the sun. Because I’m good at starcraft, and all the quakes. Like seriously, every quake ever.

      Here, a reminder about WHY there are supposed food shortages:

      “Nevertheless, this purported flaw in sustainable and local agriculture represents a curious charge because, no matter where one looks in global agriculture, food prices are low because products are in surplus.

      Often, they are in huge surplus, even in the hungriest countries. Farmers will tell you they are going out of business because, as a result of these surpluses, prices are low and continuously falling.”

      “Such calculations show that GAPS and other models omit approximately enough food annually to feed 12.5 billion persons. That is a lot of food, but it does perfectly explain why the models are so discrepant with policymakers’ and farmers’ consistent experiences of the food system.”

    […to rectify & balance,
    the cold-heated scare…]

  4. Need A Ladder says:

    I like pointing out that there are only 4 forces that have anything to do with climate change.

    1) the blazing inferno SUN set at millions of degrees Kelvin*
    2) the vast endless frigid SPACE set at a temperature of 456 degrees below zero
    3) convection on Earth where hot air rises and cold air falls
    4) H20

    These all have power to control climate about 400 trillion billion times more than carbon particles that are recyclable and fall like dust back to earth or get washed back down to earth by precipitation. They don’t just build up, and are not in any quantity that can adjust climate. The carbon dioxide in the air is a mere 1/2500 ratio and does nothing. It’s very simple.

    *Corona: ≈ 5 million K

    • Arthur Danu says:

      You are IGNORING a vast amount of information and experience regarding CHEMTRAILS.

      The blocking out of the sun and the dispersion of aluminum and other chemicals through massive aerosol spraying over the LAST 20 YEARS has had a very damaging effect on the global environment.

      If you live in the tinderbox that is the western side of the US, observed the satellite steering of hurricanes in the East, or been blasted by the “polar vortexes” in the middle of the country during wintertime, then there can be no doubt that mankind is indeed controlling the weather and affecting temperature.

      What needs to be resisted is that the “average Joe and Jane” is responsible for the climate to the extent that the media guilt trips claim. But there can be no doubt that our governments are manipulating the weather for economic and political control.

      Like 9/11, COVID, and every other global charade, we have ALLOWED them to get away with it, and it is there that the blame falls squarely on all our shoulders. I’m continually shocked to see so many parents abdicate so much responsibility for their children’s futures!

      Life on Earth sure is a MYSTERY SCHOOL!

      • Jay Hintze says:

        Yup, and NOAA is part of the geo-engineering. Their “expert testimonials” in 1975 are as good as a confession that they were already manipulating the weather then.

        • Angry Horticulturist says:

          If only people observed radar and used some basic reasoning…

          Like when I used to monitor radar, I found it quite peculiar that say, some aircraft would fly in unison, from one side of the american coast to the other (at quite high speed and altitude).

          And then, very peculiarly, there would be these terrestrial, circular “lighting up” (and this was before weed was legalized) anomalies, occurring rather predictably, very very often.

          Just after that, apparently the NOAA started placing gag orders on their employees.

          Nothing to see there.

        • Jim S Smith says:

          The washing out of the Ho Chi Minh trail was done by cloud-seeding during the Vietnam War. This is an early application of weather-modification, which is historically-documented.

          • elena says:

            or you can find some of Wilhelm Reich’s CLOUD BUSTING by his means of cloudbuster’s application (s) of his time.
            Is that why they burned all his personal books/library in 50’s or even 60’s in the freest country in the world with greatest opportunities – called ‘dream place’ or so when some calls it the Corrrrrrrrrrapted states of america with an accent on crimes without punishments selected field.
            Back to Reich – they killed him of course
            I cannot understand why would they tolerate Elana Freeland and Cathrine Austin Fitts. Not that I want them dead, but I just hate to see no logic in our stupid human existence deals.

            that question bothers me, i keep asking – but have no luck to get any light on it

      • Ravenessence says:

      • john-oranje says:

        Enough of this “the blame falls squarely on all
        our shoulders” nonsense.
        The blame falls on the policy makers and
        educators behind the scene and the “job’s worths”
        who wield their authority over the dumbed
        down masses; namely the police and the civil
        Generally they care about nothing except keeping
        their jobs and following orders, however stupid
        arbitrary or illogical.
        However where I am in the UK there is a
        slightly more relaxed attitude among most people.
        They will need to boost up the fear again soon
        if they are going to keep up this farcical
        fake ‘pandemic’.
        Also everyone I talk seems to have, long ago,
        bought into the man made global warming lie.
        How can anyone with the ability to think fall
        for the nonsense that Co2, at 400 parts per
        million in the atmosphere, can cause the planet
        to overheat.

      • Need A Ladder says:

        Chemtrails are another illusion like viruses, what you see is condensation from invisible water vapor. Why is this illusion so persistent in the rethinking crowd? It’s summer, take out a glass, fill it with ice, watch the condensation, this is what happens from hot jets blowing hot exhaust in the cold moist sky. The atmosphere above typically has a lot of this moisture and it’s bitter cold up there so a jet blasts through the unseen moisture (unseen like in your kitchen surrounding a cold glass) and the heat blows through the jets causing condensation around the moist cold air.

        • Angry Horticulturist says:

          You mean, other than say, spraying pesticides, h erbicides, various other toxins and enormously documented, known and operating chemtrail operations which you can find info about even on websites?

          Oh I guess that time when even my father (who is old and blind now) told me about how they did cloud seeding even in SOUTH AFRICA in the early 60s (likely even before that), at the latest?

          • Angry Horticulturist says:

            Sorry, I forgot what I wanted to say about that.

            But hey, why not spray Florida (again) with neurotoxins that cause the problems supposedly associated with “Zika”…to “stop Zika”…

        • Bobbi says:

          Hahahahahahahah……..condensation!! Oh, wait….you were serious???

        • john-oranje says:

          So called ‘vapor trails’ from high flying
          aircraft are indeed condensation, caused by
          low pressure over the lift surfaces.
          They do not persist like the ‘chemtrails’.
          Geo-engineering climate manipulation is an
          admitted program.
          Analysis of air samples has verified the
          reality of the ‘chemtrails’.
          Many websites on this subject.

        • Liv4ever says:

          ‘”Chemtrails ” sends the masses into a smothering rabbit hole. Geoengineering is the word .

        • Reverend Harry Longfallis says:

          Contrails from water vapor quickly dissipate, becoming invisible within a few seconds. Chemtrails stay for a long time, eventually spreading out into a kind of thin cloud layer while still visible. Come to So. Cal, you’ll see plenty of both.

      • LEONIE says:

        I have bought a book about weather warfare which was very interesting. Also the military (Air Force) plans to own the weather by 2025 using the weather as a “force multiplier”, where they can manipulate hurricanes and make and seed clouds where they can damage people’s homes/cars with hail so big it could hurt or kill a child if caught in it. There is legislation aimed at prohibiting environmental modifications of the weather but the military flaunts these due to the loopholes in the legislation. There are so many weather modification patents and HAARP patents going back decades (1970s I believe). I know the greatest influence on Earth’s weather is the Sun with solar eruptions and sunspots which affect out weather and also other factors, including other inner planets and Saturn & Jupiter. HAARP is a device that allows scientists to fiddle around with the Earth’s ionosphere in that they can heat this up for purposes only the military can define – perhaps controlling and directing the forces to win wars ie like producing long periods of drought or storms weakening a nations capacity and forcing their surrender.

      But no no no you didn’t say “Science Says” first.

      Anyway, willfully or not, you are ignorant of geoengineering aka chemtrails, SAI, weather modification, HAARP technology, military space grid. And it’s very far from “very simple.”

  6. Pisces says:

    There’s a saying that ‘players change, but the game stays the same.’

    The same old tactic the “globalists” use to control people’s minds is inducing fear through the media because they know how to instill specific psychological and behavioral changes on people just by making them feel they’re in danger. It’s always emotions they target when they want to control your mind because ‘how you feel’ is a power source that generates ‘how you think’. And emotion is an energy that’s generated through your heart. Here’s what I mean… Everything you do, every decision you make, comes from your heart in a way that your emotions are converted or translated by your brain into thoughts, and then your thoughts are translated into words or actions, and that’s how you express your energy. It always starts from your heart, whether your energy is coherent or not. They have learned how to shape your thoughts by manipulating your emotions to control how you should react to something in a certain way they want you to think, feel and act. You consciously or subconsciously already know this, and maybe you forgot, and if so, I just want to remind you to listen to your own intuition, i.e., listen to what your heart tells you, but always go to a coherent state when you do that. Align your mind and your heart with coherence, then there’s that “little voice” (not literally) that’s guiding you that you should trust… Don’t let anyone else control your emotions, is what I’m trying to say and remind you to trust your intuition, whoever you are reading this.

    Don’t let anyone else do the thinking for you, ESPECIALLY the media.

  7. Casey says:

    Since mankind exhales (CO2) as a condition of life, and these nihilistic environmentalists do not value life as a gift, the next logical step in their activist agenda was to switch from mysterious global cooling to “man made” global warming.

  8. miker says:

    Remember the ‘Global Warming’ terror of just years ago? I remember my sister calling me to let me how she was really worried about ‘this global warming’… that was causing our family to cancel Christmas together. Apparently, ‘Global Warming’ was to blame for the extreme snow storm and cold snap in Seattle.

    ‘Global Warming’ got so bad that they had to start massively arresting protesters at ‘The International Global Warming Summit in Copenhagen, Denmark. I guess ‘Global Warming’ and protesters were causing the harsh 100 year record Winter storm and harshing the dignitaries’ buzz. That was when they decided to have another baby and gave birth to:

    But it’s true, btw. Except not really…since the “climate crises” are manufactured, vampires staying inside, wearing masks, sunblock underneath the masks and “scientists” obviously trying to block the sun. Because they’re not actually “scientists” but some kind of breed of vampire degenerates. Which is why they need so much adenochrome.
