global warming could cause another ice age

Original post made by a, The Greenhouse, on Mar 5, 2008

As the world warms up from people increasingly putting CO2 into the atmosphere, I believe there are two scenarios which could result from the warming: a) extreme heat in which only areas near the poles would be suitable for life, or b) another ice age.

Hmm, interesting proposition. And in how many years would you propose this might occur?

NASA solar scientists say that this upcoming solar maximum could be the hottest on record. In the last solar minimum which occurred around 2005, scientists saw unusual solar flares which occurred around the time of Katrina and the following series of hurricanes.

If the next solar maximum, which is slated to peak around 2010 - 2012, is indeed off the charts, Earth could see record high temperatures, which could spark global earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions.

My guess is that the possibilities of seeing drastic Earth changes due to global warming would become evident starting around 2010 to 2012.

According to recent computer simulations, increased C02 will lead to bisexual fish, ball lightning, mass psoriasis, and finally, the Singularity itself on June 6, 2012 at 11:54am, followed shortly thereafter by stagflation, goose bumps and copious amounts of government cheese. Don't even bother to argue with me -- the debate is over.

For this and other reasons, everyone should drive a Prius a fly to at least 3 global warming conferences in Bali each year.
