Solar Neutrons and the 1970s cooling period | Watts Up With That?
"...Early in the 1970s a series of adverse climatic anomalies occurred:

The world’s snow and ice cover had increased by at least 10 to 15 percent.
In the eastern Canadian area of the Arctic Greenland (sic), below normal temperatures were recorded for 19 consecutive months. Nothing like this had happened in the last 100 years.
The Moscow region suffered its worst drought in three to five hundred years.
Drought occurred in Central America, the sub-Sahara, South Asia, China and Australia.
Massive floods took place in the Midwestern United States.

Within a single year, adversity had visited almost every nation on the globe.”
