    1. I can’t even decide what is more mind blowing, that they were bragging about melting a glacier or that they called themselves Humble Oil. It’s so surreal almost like from an alternative universe where rabbits think they are at the centre of evolution. Then again I’m sure everything as it is right now on this planet even without the rabbits should seem quite surreal to an alternative universe rabbit.

    3. Back it those time, people believe they were going through a period of global “cooling”.

      • There were a bunch of news articles that relied on a couple of scientific papers dealing with the potential effects of cloud forming pollution, and how it was conceivable that it could overwhelm the CO2 driven greenhouse effect. The concept of global cooling leading to a new ice age wasn’t popular with climate researchers, but the hypothesis of cloud forming pollution did turn out to be very useful. It helps explain why temps started going up after clean air laws that decreased particulates and sulfates (which previously moderated the greenhouse effect), and perhaps why Chinese and Indian industry, which lacks such regulation, may be one of the few things currently holding back a sharper rise in global temps.
