    Its been proven that the earth is in the mlidde of an ice age. Lucky for us, its in the mlidde of a warm period. So, what does that mean? Well, it means that sometime in the next 50000 years or so, the warm period will end. The glaciers will advance and global warming will be a thing of the past.
