Article isn’t imaginary

Richard Antonette wrote a letter in response to my own about hot temperatures in Lake Jackson being lower than in Las Vegas. My point was to be that millions of people live near the equator and in other hot climates with typical temperatures 10 degrees higher than in Lake Jackson and they do not die.

My letter included a citation from a Time magazine article. Mr. Antonette claims that article is a fake. I don’t think so. I did not look up anything on Google. I did not ‘take anything out of context’. I quoted from a page taped to my office wall that I tore out of the April 30, 2015 Wall Street Journal. Their section, called “Notable and Quotable,” is where I found the text I quoted. The WSJ credits Time Magazine June 24, 1974 as the source. I know the editors at the WSJ did not invent the Time Magazine article about the new ice age.

Because I clearly remember reading that article in 1974 and many others like it about the new ice age when I was looking for a job after graduating from college in Missouri. The winters had been abnormally cold during grad school. I believed those articles, so I wanted a job in New Mexico where it would be warm. But DuPont in Port Arthur made me and my wife an offer so we moved to Texas where we would not freeze being so close to the warm Gulf of Mexico.
