More recent work by Berger and Loutre suggests that the current warm climate may last another 50,000 years
Today's comparatively warm climate has been the exception more than the rule during the last 500,000 years or more. If recent warm periods (or interglacials) are a guide, then we may soon slip into another glacial period. But Berger and Loutre argue in their Perspective that with or without human perturbations, the current warm climate may last another 50,000 years. The reason is a minimum in the eccentricity of Earth's orbit around the Sun.

just because they are problems in the model dosent mean its wrong.
Agreed. But it doesn't mean it's right. Personally speaking I do not believe an ice age is approaching but I cannot exclude this possibility.
Those are some dreadfully cold temperatures!! Here in Texas, we're cooking in the warmth. It has been a strange winter indeed. I cannot add anything scientific to this thread, I can only add my sympathy for people who aren't set up for such cold temps. I'm not familiar with celsius temps, so I did a conversion to farenheit, and minus 32 celsuis translates to 89.6 degrees F below zero!!

How the hell does anything in your post equate to an ice age?
If you are able to count these facts together you might be able to see why this equates to an ice age.
- Record minus temperatures (not only in europe but also in other parts of the world -search ATS-)
- People freezing to death in relatively high numbers.
- Public transportation breaking down due to blocked and icy roads.
- Unusual harsh cold front after a relatively warm winter period.

apparently people got some text messages on the phone to warn them about a snow - storm to come, something worse than 1954 apparently.
