Just as in 2014, 1974 suffered a harsh winter because a polar vortex had swept down through the lower 48 states. Here is an excerpt from TIME Magazine from June, 1974:
Scientists have found other indications of global cooling. For one thing there has been a noticeable expansion of the great belt of dry, high-altitude polar winds —the so-called circumpolar vortex—that sweep from west to east around the top and bottom of the world.

Of course, TIME Magazine and many others in the MSM are confidently telling us now that we should not pay attention to the cold weather–the polar vortex is a manifestation of climate change brought on by anthropological global warming.
Recall that in the 1970s, many scientists were pushing the idea that global cooling was upon us, and that we need to take desperate, unified action to avert disaster. Now they are saying the same thing, just substituting the word “warming” for “cooling”. One cannot help but suspect that their real motivation all along has been to gain some sort of political basis for imposing their pet agendas on the public, using the threat of impending disaster as an excuse.
What will happen after the global warming scare is completely discredited? Will they then start weaving disaster scenarios based upon the threat of global mild weather?
