They must have saved up all the depressing stuff over the weekend to air tonight. Bail-out bonuses, economy, massive layoffs, deficit, the war, prices, and irreversible global warming. I wonder how many suicides will be blamed on Brian Williams' report tonight. Ugh.

Sorry to ruin the fun, but an ice age cometh


Disconcerting as it may be to true believers in global warming, the average temperature on Earth has remained steady or slowly declined during the past decade, despite the continued increase in the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide, and now the global temperature is falling precipitously.


This guy wrote it:

Phil Chapman is a geophysicist and astronautical engineer who lives in San Francisco. He was the first Australian to become a NASA astronaut.

So maybe you can cross one off your worry list Doug.

Somethings happening, An Ice Age, Global Warming or (and this is the one I'm holding out for) A Magnetic Inversion.

We're "due" for one or all of them.

Personally, I'd really like to see what happens when the Poles invert.

I'll be dead by the time either of the other two happen, but apparently polar inversions are really quick.(geologically)

Yep, I'm holding out for that.

Could be , but it wasn't a very good title for the article IMO. It sounded to much like something I'd write :D

Sorry to ruin the fun, but an ice age cometh

"If the ice age is coming, there is a small chance that we could prevent or at least delay the transition, if we are prepared to take action soon enough and on a large enough scale.
For example: We could gather all the bulldozers in the world and use them to dirty the snow in Canada and Siberia in the hope of reducing the reflectance so as to absorb more warmth from the sun.
We also may be able to release enormous floods of methane (a potent greenhouse gas) from the hydrates under the Arctic permafrost and on the continental shelves, perhaps using nuclear weapons to destabilise the deposits." [/quote]
