Comment Re:And the summary is an example of that hyping (Score 1) 503

I understand your resentment of all the hype - there's far too much of it. But I have heard people talk of the "70's global cooling scare" before as a way of talking down global warming. I was born in '59 and I was a nerdy kid from a family that cared about such things. The level of conviction in the scientific community is a little stronger than it was then.
Of course, there's always the possibility we were heading for another ice age (we are a bit overdue) but the global warming nipped it in the bud. There's a little evidence (not lots) that points to this.
Hype? Yes
Total Bullshit? No.
Unfortunately the only way the media can deal with anything these days is by hyping it. "Our headlines have to be bigger than theirs"
