The Ice Age Cometh. Does Pravda have more credibility than Al “Earth in the Balance” Gore? Has it finally come to this?
Note to Al Gore, Earth on the brink of an “Ice Age”. Obviously Al did not get the memo. Talk about an Inconvenient Truth, as News Busters states … As Democrats and their president-elect, with invaluable assistance from their media minions, continue spreading climate hysteria in order to raise taxes and redistribute wealth, a possibly inconvenient truth has just been presented to the international community: “The earth is now on the brink of entering another Ice Age.
The earth is now on the brink of entering another Ice Age, according to a large and compelling body of evidence from within the field of climate science. Many sources of data which provide our knowledge base of long-term climate change indicate that the warm, twelve thousand year-long Holocene period will rather soon be coming to an end, and then the earth will return to Ice Age conditions for the next 100,000 years.
Ice cores, ocean sediment cores, the geologic record, and studies of ancient plant and animal populations all demonstrate a regular cyclic pattern of Ice Age glacial maximums which each last about 100,000 years, separated by intervening warm interglacials, each lasting about 12,000 years.
Doesn’t this sound familiar, was it not during the 1970’s that scientists were discussing the potential Ice Age?
During the 1970s the famous American astronomer Carl Sagan and other scientists began promoting the theory that ‘greenhouse gasses’ such as carbon dioxide, or CO2, produced by human industries could lead to catastrophic global warming. Since the 1970s the theory of ‘anthropogenic global warming’ (AGW) has gradually become accepted as fact by most of the academic establishment, and their acceptance of AGW has inspired a global movement to encourage governments to make pivotal changes to prevent the worsening of AGW.
