I remember growing up reading in magazines and such about how the earth was going to freeze over.

You have a remarkable memory. In only one year did the papers showing global cooling outnumber those showing global warming. That year was 1971. The popular myth you just repeated is a talking point encouraged by the professional "merchants of doubt" at CEI.

The things you can do about this are voting against politicians who are denying that it is happening, and working locally to reduce your energy footprint. You can indeed "not worry" about it, we can do only what we can do. I am not permitting flawed and inaccurate reasoning relating to climate change, to be dumped into this forum unchallenged.

It is a contentious issue. I suggest that if you wish to challenge the 97% of scientists about it, the climate change board is open. Arguing here is not productive for METAR.
