1969 Nixon Government: Carbon dioxide content would rise 25 percent by 2000..raise the level of the sea by 10 feet..Goodbye New York..Goodbye Washington

Documents released Friday by the Nixon Presidential Library show members of President Richard Nixon’s inner circle were discussing the possibilities of global warming more than 30 years ago, The Associated Press reported.

Daniel Patrick Moynihan, a Democrat adviser within the administration, apparently urged the Nixon administration to initiate a worldwide system of monitoring carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, decades before the issue of global warming came to the public’s attention — with the help of Al Gore.

In a 1969 September memo, Moynihan wrote that there was a widespread agreement that carbon dioxide content would rise 25 percent by 2000.

“This could increase the average temperature near the earth’s surface by 7 degrees Fahrenheit,” he wrote. “This in turn could raise the level of the sea by 10 feet. Goodbye New York. Goodbye Washington, for that matter.”

Moynihan was Nixon’s counselor for urban affairs from January 1969, when Nixon began his presidency, to December 1970. He later served as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations before New York voters elected him to the Senate.

After a year at CCNY, he joined the United States Navy, receiving V-12 officer training at Tufts University, where he graduated with a B.A. He was on active duty from 1944 to 1947, last serving as gunnery officer of the USS Quirinus. He received an M.A. and Ph.D. in sociology from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, also at Tufts. Moynihan then studied as a Fulbright fellow at the London School of Economics.

He then became Director of the Harvard–MIT Joint Center for Urban Studies.

Moynihan named Acid Rain and the Greenhouse effect as suitable international challenges to be dealt by NATO.

He was a Roman Catholic.

President Gerald Ford appointed him as the United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations (UN), serving a rotation as President of the United Nations Security Council in 1976. As ambassador, Moynihan took a hardline anti-communist stance, in line with the agenda of the White House at the time. He was also consistently a strong supporter of Israel, condemning the 1975 UN resolution that declared Zionism to be a form of racism.


i like to look back at past scares and see how they played out..must have had some good modelling back then..a 25% rise in CO2 new york and washington underwater by 2000..hate to tell ya this but you were wrong..badly..just like the modern day prophets of doom are also wrong..
