Fears of imminent ice age to replace warming alarm?
Published on WorldNet Daily Exclusive WND, by Jerome R. Corsi, January 09, 2010.
Fears of a new ice age not seen since the 1970s are arising in the aftermath of the “Climategate” scandal that has cast doubt on the legitimacy of scientific research forming the basis for the theory that mankind is causing an ultimately catastrophic rise in temperatures worldwide.
Accuweather meteorologist Joe Bastardi has produced a video, 3.21 min, suggesting the current frigid conditions in North America, Europe and Asia are very similar to the weather patterns in the 1970s that produced fears a new ice age was imminent. (If you wait a moment, the next videos will run automatically).
In the video Bastardi explains his theory that “weather goes in a lot of cycles, and we’re going to see a lot more of the cold trending here over the next 20 or 30 years.”
WND previously reported President Obama’s science czar John Holdren was among the scientists who predicted 1 billion people would die in “carbon-dioxide induced” famines in a coming new ice age by 2020.
In the 1970s, Holdren’s theme was that government-mandated population control was essential to prevent “eco-disasters” such as the forecast ice age. Today, Holdren urges immediate passage of the Obama administration’s cap-and-trade legislation to control carbon emissions before it is too late to save the planet from “global warming.”

Malthusian population alarmist Paul Ehrlich in his 1986 book “The Machinery of Nature” announced Holdren’s prediction that 1 billion people would die from a global cooling “eco-disaster.”
Holdren based his prediction on a theory that human emissions of carbon dioxide would produce a climate catastrophe in which global warming would lead to global cooling, with a consequent reduction in agricultural production causing widespread disaster.
On pages 273-274 of “The Machinery of Nature,” Ehrlich explained Holdren’s theory by arguing “some localities will probably become colder as the warmer atmosphere drives the climactic engine faster, causing streams of frigid air to move more rapidly away from the poles.” (Emphasis in original text.)
The movement of the frigid air from the poles caused by global warming “could reduce agricultural yields for decades or more – a sure recipe for disaster in an increasingly overpopulated world,” Ehrlich wrote … (full text).
