My Introduction to global weather dynamics

Thanks to Junkscience, I now have a copy the April 28, 1975 Newsweek article that prompted my interest in global warming, or in this case global cooling. I was in Thailand at the time, but when I got to Nebraska in Setember, I bought several books on how the earth warms and cools. So concerned about the coming global cooling, and the growing energy crisis, I designed our dream house to be an energy efficient solar home. But the Nevada County contractor we chose, would not build it. A home sized solar oven he called it. By the early 1980s, the global cooling scare was over, and the world was begining to warm again.
