If you look at the history of the world we are normally in an ice age. Only 10,000 years ago you could walk from Scotland to North Africa on hundreds of feet of ice. When it melted sea levels rose by hundreds of feet.
The good news is we now know how to heat up the world. We just release an excess of carbon into it. So any time we're heading to an ice age again that is what we can do to stop it.
The bad news is that we're are in danger of releasing so much carbon that we could fry our beautiful earth and our great-grandchildren too.
If we move quickly and get on top of this issue we could regulate the earth's temperature so that we need never go back into another ice age. And have the best of all worlds.
Work to do!
