    • The 1960s were still in the cooling part of the cycle (ca 1940-1977) preceding the warming to 1998(which triggered the Al Gore/Michael Mann-made global warming). At the time newspapers still speculated on an imminent ice age.

  1. And to think, if it hadn’t been for that guy using a SUV to get to where they could film that picture of the whale, that whale probably would have been swimming merrily out in the Atlantic, because everybody knows – except maybe those that produced this film, that carbon dioxide causes global warming which causes colder weather and more extreme storms. If you don’t believe me, just ask the Goracile.
