The brief sliver of time that is recorded human history we know very little about the weather here. However, what we do know is that it in in a
constant state of change. Using ice core samples we can see with some level of accuracy the last 150,000 years.

Alright, we can see pretty well that we go in and out of Ice Ages, constantly. Something causes this with a fair amount of regularity. My guess is
that it is the Sun.
We are currently enjoying what is know as an interglacial period. What is so great about it is that we have huge areas on the surface of the Earth
where plants can be grown, feeding a staggering population that is nearing 6.5-7 billion people.
The problem with the planet during a period of glaciation is that a large % of previously arable lands become "iced". This is bad for farming.
Take a look at Antarctica. It is iced and useless for farming.
My theory is that one of two things happens.
1) The Sun sends a CME that is large enough to cause a pole shift. Since the Sun and the Earth share polarity (ie. North on the Sun is North on the
Earth) When a large CME comes hurtling our way the North Pole of the CME, and the North pole of the Earth collide, and it cause the poles to shift on
the Earth. Just like if you collide two magnets together in space with them lined up North Pole to North Pole.
This causes the Poles to be in different places. For example if the pole shifted one way 40 degrees:
This would be a terrible disaster because the current polar ice caps would melt and new ones would form potentially over landmasses that are currently
Huge waves would overtake the coasts. Terrible storms would occur. Earthquakes. Volcanoes. All at once, and it would be very difficult to survive.
Not to mention the EMP that would take out all electronics at once.
2) We live in a Binary star system with a brown dwarf.
Every so often this companion star to the Sun comes hurtling through the solar system, and screws everything up. It could actually be the reason
that a CME comes and hits the Earth.
Or the gravity of the brown Dwarf or planets around it cause a disturbance in the weather patterns here on Earth. It could be that we just get
bombarded with asteroids and comets, and that causes a nuclear winter and a new Ice age.
Well I was going to put a lot of other stuff on this thread, but it has become babysitting time, I will add more later.
