Flashback: Experts Blamed ‘Global Cooling’ For The Widespread Droughts Of The 1970s


How Global Cooling Led To The Widespread Droughts Of The 1970s

By Paul Homewood



In October 1974, the NOAA Magazine published this piece by Patrick Hughes about the detrimental effects of 30 years of global cooling (yes, the cooling that warmists insist never happened!)







We are told that global warming has led to a worse climate, with more extreme weather.

Yet every account seems to bear out that the reverse is true, and that the warming experienced between 1890 and 1940 was actually hugely beneficial.





Discussing Northern Hemisphere temperatures, NOAA state that “the total change has averaged about one half degree Centigrade” since 1940.

Yet, according to HADCRUT smoothed annual averages, the drop is only about 0.2C, between 1940 and 1973. (A simple year on year comparison shows that 1973 was actually slightly warmer than 1940).
