Re: Feb. 21 letter from Lynn Goldfarb, “Global warming scientific fact”
You start from a false premise, then expose your naivete with each additional statement.
Science does not equate with “truth.” Science is the quest for truth. It’s an on-going study to learn the great truths of the universe(s).
Science disproves itself every day. Each day scientists learn something new that changes what they thought they knew the day before.
Reference “Let Cooler Heads Prevail” from Sunday, April 2, 2006; Page B07 - Washington Post. “...be worried, very worried, about global cooling. Science magazine (Dec. 10, 1976) warned of “extensive Northern Hemisphere glaciation.” Science Digest (Feb. 1973) reported that “the world’s climatologists are agreed” that we must “prepare for the next ice age.”
The Christian Science Monitor (”Warning: Earth’s Climate is Changing Faster Than Even Experts Expect”, Aug. 27, 1974) reported that glaciers “have begun to advance,” “growing seasons in England and Scandinavia are getting shorter” and “the North Atlantic is cooling down about as fast as an ocean can cool.” Newsweek agreed (”The Cooling World,” April 28, 1975) that meteorologists “are almost unanimous” that catastrophic famines might result from the global cooling that the New York Times (Sept.14, 1975) said “may mark the return to another ice age.” The Times (May 21, 1975) also said “a major cooling of the climate is widely considered inevitable” now that it is “well established” that the Northern Hemisphere’s climate “has been getting cooler since about 1950.”
So, in fact, the Earth is always experiencing either warming or cooling. That is the truth not science.
