As the media have collaborated to bombard the populace with environmental and climate doom propaganda, it is only fair and reasonable to hold their feet to the fire (as it were) and examine past media promoted predictions that have failed to materialise.

From New York Times, January 5, 1978

Interesting quote at the end of the NYT article above:

The observations come at a time when a warming trend could have been expected from the increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere due to the extensive fuel burning. […] the cause of the apparent cooling remained unknown and that no scientific attempt to predict whether the the trend could continue was possible.

New York Times, January 5, 1978

What actually happened was that it got slightly warmer after 1978, the cooling trend did not continue as predicted.

Current score: Experts 0 – Reality 12.
