Whatever Happened To The 70's Iceage?
What ever happened to the ice age we were going to get in the 1970's?
I remember when I was a kid way back in the late 70's that everyone was saying we are going into a new ice age. Back then I thought that it wouldn't be a bad thing. I loved snow and school would be out more often than not. I could pretend I was on the planet Hoth and that At-At would definitely be on my Christmas list. But seriously though, news on TV, newspapers and scientists when they got the chance would scare us in to believing there is an ice age imminent. Obviously now we here about global warming. I can't help but feel a bit skeptical. I realise these days that being doubtful about climate change etc is almost heresy but blame the 70's. Please don't shoot me down in flames, a famous person sums up quite nicely how I feel:
"fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again" - George Bush
By the way I never got an At-At.
