climate change deniers often cite a story which appeared in Newsweek magazine in 1975 about the theory of "global cooling". That humble nine paragraph story which appeared on page 64 of the respected journal is one of the key weapons deniers turn to.

However the science and technology reporter who wrote the story has today distanced himself from it. His name is Peter Gwynne. Now 72-years-old, Gwynne spoke this week to US website climate.org.

"When I wrote this story I did not see it as a blockbuster," Gwynne told the site. "It was just an intriguing piece about what a certain group in a certain niche of climatology was thinking."

Since then, the science of climate changed has evolved greatly. The relationship between human generated carbon dioxide output and warming was not clearly established then. Though still far from universally accepted in its fine print, the basic theory is now so well-documented that virtually every scientist accepts it.

For example, it was reported this week that 9135 out of 9136 scientists who've written in peer-reviewed journals about man-made global warming accept the theory.

The lone dissenter was a Russian scientist who is on the record as saying that fossil fuel-free energy will hurt Russia's economy.

Peter Gwynne, who penned the original global cooling story in Newsweek, today accepts the warming science. He still writes science stories and is the North American correspondent for Physics World, based in England. Just recently he wrote that "It's been American science and scientists - particularly NASA - that showed the climate is changing.

"I've been willing to accept that some of [my writing] is misused and misinterpreted," Gwynne said.

So who was siding with the Russian?

@bee
Well I assume you remember (your older than me  tongue ) some studies in the 70's that reported a new ice age or something of the sort?  Wink 

This is that scientist saying he was wrong plus the study was also 'miss used' by the media at the time.
And him explaining how we can have that Data in the 70's but this much more accurate data now.
