I think a lot of people suffer from the idea that global warming necessarily means warming for everyone - I think it's really more about global
weather instability.. things getting shifted out of their usual patterns, out of comfortable patterns. Unfortunately, there's a lot of error in the
data we have available, since obviously if things are happening on a macroscopic scale, 100 years of recorded weather data isn't enough to figure out
the difference between minor and major fluctuations. Sunspots, man made effects, global trends, it's hard to predict the future when your data about
the past isn't complete enough.
Are we facing the next ice age? Are we facing tropical temperatures in the arctic? There's no really good way to tell, too many factors to take into
account. All we can do is be prepared for whatever comes our way..
