The Cooling Canard

If there is one meme in the anti-AGW camp that drive me nuts, it’s the idea that the scientific community was all about global cooling thirty years ago. This study destroys (PDF) that notion, looking at publications and citations of papers in the 1970’s. Global cooling was a theory, but far from a consensus one. Global warming theory did not succeed it; global warming theory competed with and defeated global cooling theory.
