wow.. I forgot I had posted here.

Anyway.

Hmm.

The thing about our planet is that is is on the backside of a "Milankovitch Cycle" in which the planet goes through a cooling phase.

The other thing about our planet is that we are artificially warming it in many areas through thermal pollution. (that is, heat generation and expulsion.)


Thus, I decide to skirt "global warming" as it is traditionally spake about (greenhouse gasses) and speak with a different angle:
-Winters are getting colder. (with Milankovitch Cycle, this make sense.)
-Summers are staying unbearably hotter. (with thermal pollution, this makes sense.)

The difficulty is not so much the alleged "greenhouse gasses" as it is the obvious nature of our unnatural warming of the planet by the use of our heat-genertating means.

The average temperature of any area should be effected by these things and from my experience I think that it does and has just that.


Thinking about this more, I don't see the next ice age happening on the terms the Milankovitch Cycle should be taking it, rather I see the Milankovitch Cycle still guiding us to a cooler period while we thermally pollute enough to keep things melting anyway.

I theorise that the future will be very cold, very wet and very annoying to live in.

Peace!

Makes you wonder just how we as a species is going to live through that. It certainly would be a good test of survival

It's called colonization of other planets.  Duh!  Why do you think the new "Space Race" is starting?  I'm being serious with this statement.
