EPA sees "climate change" years before the IPCC.
Hi All,
This is rather interesting from a historical context..

Was the Fix In Before the IPCC Existed?
No Frakking Consensus blog - Donna Laframboise

Exceprt,
" Steven Goddard over at his RealScience blog recently dug up a news clipping from 1983.
That’s 27 years ago – and a full five years prior to the establishment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

These days we’re advised that the reason we should believe climate change is a serious problem is because IPCC reports say so.
We’re told that, after careful examination of the evidence, in 2007 thousands of the world’s smartest scientists concluded
that recent warming (during the last third of the past 150 years) is very likely the result of human activities.

However this article – distributed by the reputable New York Times news service
– demonstrates that the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) had already made up its mind a quarter-century before that.
Back in 1983 newspaper readers were advised that global warming wasn’t a trivial matter, that “major changes” were inevitable, and
that some of these changes would be evident as early as 1990.
"

and,
" see the 1983 news clipping here

another version appears here
"

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed
(and hence clamorous to be led to safety)
by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

H. L. Mencken.

The hobgoblins have to be imaginary so that
"they" can offer their solutions, not THE solutions.
