    I been hearing this all over but thats cause Tim keeps telling me this all the time, LOL

    Looks like the push from congress will be to get the biggest gas guzzler you can afford and romp on the pedal everychance you get so the earth doesnt fall into the ice age. Humans hafe to learn that we cant control everything.

    Im excited yet concerned about the ice age, it wont be fun forever! Like icey said, I like my summers too!

    The Big Chill
    by Kirk A. Maasch

    diagram of glaciation During the past billion years, the Earth's climate has fluctuated between warm periods - sometimes even completely ice-free - and cold periods, when glaciers scoured the continents. The cold periods - or ice ages - are times when the entire Earth experiences notably colder climatic conditions. During an ice age, the polar regions are cold, there are large differences in temperature from the equator to the pole, and large, continental-size glaciers can cover enormous regions of the earth.

    Ever since the Pre-Cambrian (600 million years ago), ice ages have occurred at widely spaced intervals of geologic time - approximately 200 million years - lasting for millions, or even tens of millions of years. For the Cenozoic period, which began about 70 million years ago and continues today, evidence derived from marine sediments provide a detailed, and fairly continuous, record for climate change. This record indicates decreasing deep-water temperature, along with the build-up of continental ice sheets. Much of this deep-water cooling occurred in three major steps about 36, 15 and 3 million years ago - the most recent of which continues today. During the present ice age, glaciers have advanced and retreated over 20 times, often blanketing North America with ice. Our climate today is actually a warm interval between these many periods of glaciation. The most recent period of glaciation, which many people think of as the "Ice Age", was at its height approximately 20,000 years ago.

    Although the exact causes for ice ages, and the glacial cycles within them, have not been proven, they are most likely the result of a complicated dynamic interaction between such things as solar output, distance of the Earth from the sun, position and height of the continents, ocean circulation, and the composition of the atmosphere.

    that was before you drove your 3/4 ton around today sno.

    i hope we do get alot of snow. If its going to be friggn cold it might as well be snowy. as far as the ice age i think i have a few thousand years before i might have to be concerned. by then the world will be so polluted we vacated it or still recovering from multiple nuclear wars and a nuclear winter will be the only winter we think about. And i will be long dead so i wont be thinking of anything.

    yeah snow would be nice, but we dont want to freeze to death, and yes the media is owned by the government and they say gore is right with the global warming and they want to tax us on it so they can keep all that money for themselves, there is a video about this stuff.
