With great excitement, WUWT has discovered some old news: The CIA documents the global cooling research of the 1970’s. But, being WUWT, it gets it wrong. Because the CIA didn’t document the research of the time. The document they are citing isn’t competent.
Nor is any of this new; see A study of climatological research as it pertains to intelligence problems for the details. I’ll repeat my conclusion from there:
Conclusion: this report says more about the CIA, and the dangers of a report being hijacked by a small group of people when not put out for proper review, than it does about the state of climatology at the time.
I’d tell this this myself, but they can’t cope with too much reality.
