I've just finished writing a research paper on global warming for a college course I am taking. During my research, it crossed my mind that the
Mayan's may have been able to predict the next Ice Age.
What I never realized is that we're currently IN an Ice Age. All of recorded humanity has actually occurred within what is called an interglacial
period. The current interglacial period is known as the Holocene and is somewhere between 12,000 and 18,000 years old.
"Approximately every 100,000 years Earth's climate warms up temporarily. These warm periods, called interglacial periods, appear to last
approximately 15,000 to 20,000 years before regressing back to a cold ice age climate. At year 18,000 and counting our current interglacial vacation
from the Ice Age is much nearer its end than its beginning."
According to the EPA
"Abrupt or rapid climate changes tend to frequently accompany transitions between glacial and interglacial periods (and vice versa). For example, a
significant part of the Northern Hemisphere (particularly around Greenland) may have experienced warming ratesof 14-28ºF over several decades during
and after the most recent ice age"
According to the SSRC:
"There can no longer be any doubt that the Sun has entered an historic period of dramatically reduced activity which will bring us many long years of
deep cold weather. This was predicted by me and a few other scientists around the globe but of course we were not taken seriously because of the
politics of global warming and the refusal of many media outlets to print or telecast alternatives to the now discredited man made global warming
concept. According to national and international sources that monitor the Sun, what is happening on and in the Sun is nothing short of record setting,
astounding, and at the same time worrisome. The solar wind is at its lowest level in fifty years. The surface movement on the Sun has slowed to record
rates and according to NASA’s previous announcements is ‘off the bottom of the charts.’ "

Is it possible that the Earth is about to plunge into a full blown, 100,000 year long Ice Age? Are we in a rinse and repeat cycle? Has this all been
done before? Could 100,000 years of being buried under thousands of feet of ice have erased all traces of prior advanced civilizations? Were the
Mayans somehow able to predict this down to an exact date? Is it possible they were descendant from a group of people who survived through an Ice Age?
