New Ice Age: Milankovitch cycles

Written by Paul Zannucci on 4:37 PM

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.

So says an article from Pravda, which uses Milankovitch cycles to support the theory. Normally I'm good about reworking material I find, but I'm just going to copy and paste this explanatory paragraph...

The three Milankovich cycles include the tilt of the earth, which varies over a 41,000 year period; the shape of the earth’s orbit, which changes over a period of 100,000 years; and the Precession of the Equinoxes, also known as the earth’s ‘wobble’, which gradually rotates the direction of the earth’s axis over a period of 26,000 years. According to the Milankovich theory of Ice Age causation, these three astronomical cycles, each of which effects the amount of solar radiation which reaches the earth, act together to produce the cycle of cold Ice Age maximums and warm interglacials.

You know you have issues when you start pulling for a new ice age and the resulting deaths of about a billion people just to spite Al Gore, but for some reason I can't help it. I'm sure we can figure out some sort of growing method that will keep food on the table for everyone.

Of course, you realize that even if we do go into an ice age, it will be your fault. They'll figure out some way of blaming it on consumption. They'll say we used so much carbon that we created a permanent nulear winter. But by then no one will be listening to them.
