lol. How pathetic. We are in now in an interglacial. The recent increasing CO2 (ca. 35% increase cf. prior baseline) is simply a result of our burning stuff.
Like your understanding of this issue, don't overestimate how compelling you are.
The general term "ice age" or, more precisely, "glacial age" denotes a geological period of long-term reduction in the temperature of the Earth's surface and atmosphere, resulting in an expansion of continental ice sheets, polar ice sheets and alpine glaciers. An ice age is a natural system. Within a long-term ice age, individual pulses of extra cold climate are termed "glacial periods" (or alternatively "glacials" or "glaciations"), and intermittent warm periods are called "interglacials". Glaciologically, ice age implies the presence of extensive ice sheets in the northern and southern hemispheres; by this definition we are still in the ice age that began at the start of the Pleistocene (because the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets still exist).
Whose understanding of what?
Youre pitiful frankly, and Im done destroying you, the DENIER.
