Faking covers of Time Magazine to support denialism

The 1970s Ice Age Myth and Time Magazine Covers – by David Kirtley
[Via Greg Laden's Blog]

This is a guest post by David Kirtley. David originally posted this as a Google Doc, and I’m reproducing his work here with his permission. Just the other day I was speaking to a climate change skeptic who made mention of an old Time or Newsweek (he was not sure) article that talked about fears of a coming ice age.

We are about 40 years on now. The science is no longer divided. We are not entering an Ice Age and the world is warming.

The only ‘facts’ that denialists have are fake magazine covers.
