Ice ages are not caused by the earths wobble they are caused by events like ocean currents stopping, volcanic eruptions, massive methane releases, comet impacts.

What do you guys just make crap up randomly post on forums as a joke?

For love of Gods and Goddesses new and old will anybody just do a cursory search of the term ice age or just pay attention in elementary school. There can't be a new ice age until the last one ends. This is an ice age. Right now. Right where you are. Look outside. You are looking at an ice age that's been going on two and a half million years. We just happen to be in between periods of glaciation. Look it up. I can't even comprehend how this could be news to literate people.

Fluctuations in the amount of insolation (incoming solar radiation) are the most likely cause of large-scale changes in Earth's climate during the Quaternary. In other words, variations in the intensity and timing of heat from the sun are the most likely cause of the glacial/interglacial cycles.


It is at the top of the page when you google, "what causes ice ages to come and go".

Global ice ages and warming periods are caused by Earths wobble, axial tilt and orbit around the sun (Milankovitch Cycles). This cycle affects the amount of energy we receive from the sun. This cycle has its extremes and its mild points. At extremes it effects the oceans conveyor belts, causes greenhouse gases to either thaw or freeze which further affect the global temperature.

Though yes, if a big enough object smashes into Earth it would cause an ice age out of sync with the natural cycle. Volcanoes affect global temperatures to a lesser degree and shorter duration unless a big one goes off or a bunch of small ones in a close time period. Generally the ash is the greatest factor, reflecting the sun before its energy reaches the surface (causing moderate cooling).

I'd ease up on the snap judgements until you have a better handle on the basics.

Yes (but why did they change?)


vollcanic eruptions,


No, they're much too short lived.


massive methane releases,


Wrong sign. Methane released makes planet hotter


comet impacts.


Huh?

No, people read the peer-reviewed research on this subject which has been going on for decades.

The Sun God is angry.

We must throw beads and trinkets and valuables at our village elders who know more than we do and can save us from the angry Sun God, but only if we throw enough beads and trinkets and we are found worthy.

If we are found unworthy, the Sun God will punish us regardless of what our great village elders can do.




The Sun God's don't want trinkets anymore they want animal sacrifices, and to start with they are asking for Rabbits.

Goes against it or is it just a co-factor in climate change?


This is the sort of comment I like to see..."co-factor"...as in "co-"...as in "in association with" REALLY!? We human's are so naive that we think the Sun might have an effect on our weather systems in association with our own activities of driving exceedingly tiny cars around on the surface for 100 years.

LOL

The economy will be fine for 99.9% of the citizens of Earth if we go towards green energy solutions.

Big Oil and friends will suffer, perhaps even go out of business. They know this, hence the propaganda push to make it seem like addressing the man-made problems we are causing this person will destroy the economy, or addressing the addressing the issues is just a socialist/communist agenda aimed at (insert evil sounding world domination goal here).

If our species wants to thrive, we have to take care of the planet. Destroying the planet will destroy us.

It is interesting to see how many have already blindly jumped on the "We're heading toward an ice-age" bandwagon on this thread just because they want to be against the notion of man-made global warming, NOT because they actually need their own independent research and reached their own unbiased conclusion.



So true. Why would the government lie about this. If they had said well we need green energy because of smog and polution of the environment, you wouldve all nod and said true true lets get on with it. The theory doesnt make sense, at all. If anything big oil companies are behind this so called debunking of global warming.

Well, the fact that we see no solutions being offered by the governments or anyone else save for taxation systems that line the pockets of the same oil companies.

I would say the OIL COMPANIES are behind BOTH sides, and the scientists reflect that reality.

Stop charging those who have NO say in how things are done to save the planet, and maybe some people will take heed.

Until then, no one cares , and no one should, incomplete science, overhyped hysteria, no rises in the oceans makes it seem very incredibly stupid, not to mention the fact that a warmer planet would be a NICE thing maybe.

I don't Get it? Not long ago, everybody telles out about increased solar activity, the earth was in danger, now we have another problem, the sun's activity is flatlining, either it is dying or it is regaining it's massive powers, threatening to destroy us all, one way or another... I'm getting pretty sick of this sheep herding..
GO LEFT,"whistle" GO RIGHT!! "Whistle"
LEFT,RIGHT,LEFT!! Straight narrowed down to the slaughter house?
What is this? Last year norway had it's warmest summer in over 70 years, And today we're told that we have over a centimeters ahead of us with a mini ice age? I realy don't think that this is worth giving much attention?

Peace

Saw on the news that the great lakes are pretty much frozen solid, as in covered with ice. I don't remember ever seeing this before, and am wondering, does this happen often? Perhaps I'm just unaware.

Shhhh!

You will ruin Al Gore's scam!!!

He needs the money from selling YOU carbon credits for HIS 100ft boat, his private jet, oversize house,...etc...

The cooling effect is already here.

Attempting to prove that any human activity has more impact on climate than the sun is not science, it's lunacy.

The entire AGW movement is about control.
