News then; humour today
« on: June 22, 2008, 01:22:54 pm »
Have you ever looked back and found things that, at the time, were dead serious but today are just funny?

For example, Time magazine reporting an imminent anthropogenic ice age about 34 years ago. Legislation was then enacted to add scrubbers to factory chimneys to reduce particulate matter in the air and therefore allow heat to reach the Earth. Now, German scientists are suggesting to spray particulate matter into the atmosphere again to cool Earth down.

Anyone else have, what at the time was, serious news that, today, is now just funny?
