In 1970s, did left wingers say there was global cooling?

Yep...late 60s to early 70s. We were told in school that if we didn't get "air pollution" under control, it would block heat from the sun and cause the next ice age. We were all going to freeze/starve to death.

@BizSuitStacy Now Bill (I think I’m God) Gates will do that for us with his “blocking the sun” technology.
@Carissimi Exactly. An absolute insane concept.
No, it's a lie that gets repeated in right-wing memes.

I’m still waiting for those icebergs to show up off Miami Beach I was told about in 1959.

@trollslayer 5th grade, Mr. Needham’s class, 1959. Sunset Elementary School
@sunsporter1649 So your 5th grade teacher was a climatologist in 1959? And again, when did Mr. Needham say these icebergs would allegedly appear?

Here are the facts about scientific cooling vs warming predictions in the 1970s:

@sunsporter1649 You have no facts to back you up; you are forced to get your data from CARTOONS🤣😂🤣😂

@sunsporter1649 I’m still waiting for icebergs off Miami Beach…lol
@sunsporter1649 What climate scientist allegedly told you that, and when did they say the icebergs would allegedly appear?

Mr. Spock did a special coming ice age. Pentagon did a report on possible catastrophic global cooling. Time Magazine and other EXPERTS predicted global catastrophic freezing
