History of climate change hype

Laura of Pursuing Holiness left a comment at Wizbang which references this article which references the NY Times, back in 1895, being upset about climate change.

On Feb. 24, 1895, the Times announced “Geologists Think the World May Be Frozen Up Again.” The article debated “whether recent and long-continued observations do not point to the advent of a second glacial period.” Those concerns were brought on by increases in northern glaciers and in the severity of Scandinavia’s climate.
Selling papers is what it's all about.
