Several thousand years from now, sheets of ice will cover most of
the globe, plunging the Earth into a semi-permanent ice age. At least,
that was Mother Nature’s plan. But a new study suggests that global
warming caused by carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere may have
staved off the most extreme ice age the world has ever seen.
Unfortunately, climatologists warn, that isn’t exactly a good thing.
Climate researchers at the University of Edinburgh have been
creating models to predict the path of future climate events. In
studying past ice ages, they have found that the ice ages have been
lasting longer, and that the temperature extremes between the ice ages
have become more pronounced. They predict that, without human
intervention, the next ice age could have been the most profound in
recent geological history, lasting more than a hundred thousand years.
Global warming, however, may have postponed that super ice age
"Climate skeptics could look at this and say, CO2 is good for us,"
said study leader Thomas Crowley of the University of Edinburgh in
But the idea that global warming may be staving off an ice age is
"not cause for relaxing, because we're actually moving into a highly
unusual climate state," Crowley added.
So we evaded some super ice age that would have prevented the use of bikinis for a hundred thousand years? Thank goodness.
