Unstoppable global something

Yeah, it's old. As a matter of fact, it's more than a century old.
Last year Tim Blair put up a post with links to olden global warmmongering articles in the NY Times, it seems like a good time to repost it.
From 1923
Glaciers have disappeared and land once covered with field ice is bare.
From 1935
The great glaciers of the West, last remnants of the Ice Age on continental United States, have been retreating from their strongholds in the mountains at double time since last year.

But wait! There's still more!
From 1895
The question is again being discussed whether recent and long-continued observations do not point to the advent of a second glacial period, when the countries now basking in the fostering warmth of a tropical sun will ultimately give way to the perennial frost and snow of the polar regions.

From 1934
America is believed by Weather Bureau scientists to be on the verge of a change of climate, with a return to increasing rains and deeper snows and the colder Winters of grandfather’s day.

And my personal favorite, from 1924
Some People Always Think the Climate Is Changing, But Mr. Scarr Says There Is Nothing in His Records to Justify the Notion

But this time, this time, they're absolutely correct.
I look forward to 2011 when the Sun starts with the sunspots again and the Earth starts warming just as Al Gore notices it's been cooling.
He'll travel the world bleating about how industrialization is causing the coming ice age.
And since Gaia hates him, he'll bring heat wherever he goes.

Of course, that requires that this spring, what with all the invasions and wars, doesn't bring nukular winter.
Eh, you take the endy with the funny in this end of civilization.
