Economist Thomas Sowell Is Retiring — His First Column Exposed 1970s ‘Ice Age’ Alarmism

Sowell’s first column ever, titled “The Profits of Doom,” was written decades before the global warming hysteria among today’s environmentalists. During the 1970s, scientists were warning of a coming ice age.

“The first column I ever wrote, 39 years ago, was titled ‘The Profits of Doom,’” Sowell wrote in his final column, according to The National Review.

“This was long before Al Gore made millions of dollars promoting global-warming hysteria,” Sowell wrote. “Back in 1970, the prevailing hysteria was the threat of a new ice age — promoted by some of the same environmentalists who are promoting global-warming hysteria today.”
