Global Warming: predicted in 1931

“The mechanization of the world has entered on a phase dangerous over-tension. The picture of the earth, with its plants, animals, and men, has altered. In a few decades most of the great forests have gone, to be turned into news-print, and climatic changes have been thereby set afoot which imperil the land-economy of whole populations.”
— Oswald Spengler, Man and Technics (1931), pp. 93-94
