Re: 1975 Newsweek Article About the Coming Ice Age

That may be so; however, it would seem to me that if atmospheric carbon levels are the issue, then scientists should have been more afraid of global warming in 1975 than today. The world in 1975 was absolutely a dirtier place than it is now. There were precious little smog regulations in place on any level of industry; air pollution was rampant in the bigger cities; the installation of the catalytic converter, the most significant pollution control device to be placed in an automobile, was not mandated until 1974, over fifty years after the automobile went into mass production.

I don't think you can argue that the world today is a cleaner place than it was in 1975. Yet the big fear then was that we would all freeze to death. Where was the fear of carbon levels then?
