The Cooling World (1975)

From "The Cooling World" which ran in Newsweek magazine April 28, 1975.

"There are ominous signs that the earth's weather patterns have begun to change dramatically and that these changes may portend a drastic decline in food production — with political implications for just about every national on earth. The drop in food output could begin quite soon, perhaps only ten years from now.

"The evidence in support of these predictions has now begun to accumulate so massively that meteorologists are hardpressed to keep up with it. . . . .

"The central fact is that after three quarters of a century of extraordinarily mild conditions, the earth's climate seems to be cooling down. Meteorologists disagree about the cause and extent of the cooling trend, as well as over its specific impact onlocal weather conditions. But they are almost unanimous in the view that the trend will reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century."
