So they thought the world was warming up, then in the 1970s the scientists were convinced that the earth was going into the next ice age. Now it's warming up again.
I'm sure 97% were convinced each time.

I for one could go with out a repeat of " 1800 and froze to death".
Snowy winters soon becoming a thing of the past sounds more like a solution to a problem than an actual problem.

I have lived in Maine and northern Japan so my hatred of snow runs deeper than the 2002-2003 winter snow fall in northern Japan, where we got 250+ inches.
