We're all going to die... I'm just not sure why yet

Some people seem to be prone to millennialism. They are sure we're all doomed, but the details of why need to be located in the most convenient available theory.

It seems that NASA's climate alarmist in chief, James Hansen, might be one such person. Strident in the field of Global Warming Alarmism, he was predicting 22 foot sea level rises just last week.

Washington resident John Lockwood was doing some research at the Library of Congress recently when he came across a 1971 piece in the Washington Post. The Washington Times explains further:

"U.S. Scientist Sees New Ice Age Coming," blares the headline of the July 9, 1971, article, which cautions readers that the world "could be as little as 50 or 60 years away from a disastrous new ice age, a leading atmospheric scientist predicts."

The scientist was S.I. Rasool, a colleague of Mr. Hansen's at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The article goes on to say that Mr. Rasool came to his chilling conclusions by resorting in part to a new computer program developed by Mr. Hansen that studied clouds above Venus.
