Credit for this post must be given to Edward Spalton because he has supplied me with the information.
Says Edward: '1972 was the year when severe frost destroyed all the Soviet Autumn-sown wheat crop. We had a great shortage in 1973.'
In case anyone has a problem reading the image, it is a clip from the Ontario, Canada's Windsor Star dated 9 September, 1972. It quotes Professor Hubert Lamb, the then director of climate research at the University of East Anglia:
"The full impact of the new Ice Age will not be upon us for another 10,000 years and even then it will not be as severe as the last great glacial period.
"We are past the best of the inter-glacial period which happened between 7,000 and 3,000 years ago.
"Ever since then we have been on a downhill float regarding temperature. There may be a few upward fluctuation from time to time but these are more than offset by the general downward trend."
He continues by saying, "We are on a definite downhill course for the next two centuries. The last 20 years of this century will be progressively colder. After that the climate may warm up again but only for a short period of decades."
Professor Lamb didn't use modern 'modelling' computer technology for his prediction, but he studied the science. He developed early theories about the medieval warm period and little ice age and became known as the 'ice man'.
However, according to Edward's friend Philip Foster, these theories were to be Lamb's downfall:
Interesting, however very important to point out that Prof. Hubert Lamb never changed his view on this and, consequently, was ousted from UEA in a politico-academic coup d'etat by Tom Wigley, Phil Jones et al. He was disgracefully treated. It was his Medieval Warm Period that the warmistas tried to 'get rid of' as an infamous leaked email shows.
The whole science has been corrupted by greed and a strong desire for power and fame.
Is it any wonder so many people have disputed the recent claims by Phil Jones and his ilk, whose predictions have been proved to be tainted (to put it kindly)?
