For our 5,001st post I thought I shall try to cheer some of our readers up or, at least, entertain them. Claudia Rossett sums up the politics of the last week and finds little enough to be satisfied with. However, both she and the commenters on her posting have some entertainment at the expense of journalists, scientists and scientific journalists.
Remember the global cooling and how we were supposed to do all sorts of things to prevent it as it might do terrible things to us, like flood the landmass, destroy the crops and whatnot? Well, Rossett and her readers provide various links to articles on that subject published in the 1970s. Enjoy.
