Flashback: When California drought was blamed on ‘global cooling’

Moonbeam was on the case; Steven Goddard has dug up the evidence to provide us with this humorous interlude.   In 2055, California is likely to be in another drought cycle.  Since Jerry Brown would be 117 in 2055, we can at least assume with some confidence that he won’t be serving a fifth term as governor.
