Senator Takes On Global Warming Hype

Senator James Inhofe on the Senate floor Monday:

Since 1895, the media has alternated between global cooling and warming scares during four separate and sometimes overlapping time periods. From 1895 until the 1930’s the media peddled a coming ice age.

From the late 1920’s until the 1960’s they warned of global warming. From the 1950’s until the 1970’s they warned us again of a coming ice age. This makes modern global warming the fourth estate’s fourth attempt to promote opposing climate change fears during the last 100 years.

Much more here, with charts and everything. Then there's the media hysteria (and non-attention) that followed.
