Modern Warming and the 35-Year Cool Period Within

  • Rex J. Fleming


The World War II and post war period was a time of tremendous industrial growth from 1940 to 1975. However this 35-year period turned colder during the Modern Warming. The benchmark CO2 record of the Mauna Loa Laboratory continued its annual rise in CO2 – failing to record the cool period.

Five different observational records did record this cool period. Two different solar records do match the cooling! Figures are provided for this proof.
