Way back in the 1970′s headlines around the world screamed that we were entering another ice age. Global cooling had kicked in, as it does from time to time, and scientific knowledge all those years ago could not explain why. Time magazine even featured the coming ice age on it’s front cover in 1974.
Of course the ice age didn’t arrive. Actually the world started warming, as it also does from time to time. This time scientists were adamant they knew why. Global warming, and what’s more it was our fault, we, the humans were causing it. They even gave it a new name, anthropogenic global warming, AGW for short.
AGW was never going to go away, it was destined to get worse and worse. Governments called meetings about it, protocols were drawn up. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was born. Green energy was forced onto us, carbon taxes squeezed our pockets via higher domestic fuel bills but we took it, we were saving the world.
