Re: Global Cooling on it's way (bobbapink)

OK. This is a semi-serious question. Logically, one would expect that an increase in CO2 would cause a greenhouse effect, all other things being equal. Granted, it is that last qualifier and the over-riding complexity of any real-world problem that leads to all the debate.

Let's say, for the sake of sheer argument, that we are heading into another ice age and that our burning of fossil fuels tempers the degree of cooling observed. So, what happens next? What causes the larger scale hot and cold swings of our earth (sun cycles?) and, if we dampen a cold swing, would that alter any ensuing warm age? Would we really fry then?
