The Next Iceage (edit Rook: no caps for you!)
I just watched a documentary on how we are heading towards our next iceage. which could most likely be in the next 10 years or so. also i learned that the earths "weather patterns" or its "stages" change dramatically and not "steadily". i think that they are right, if everyone really pays attention. havent you noticed? the winters get harsher every year [ well in Cali anyways ]. plus the hurricanes, more storms, more chaos. more rain. water levels going up. global warming. intense heat. and the list goes on and on and on. if the iceage does happen - due to us not caring for the environment and destroying it every time someone blinks, i find that the iceage or someother type of chaotic stage earth has will come to our faces as fast as the ground does when we fall . Or is this all just something the earth does as it develops? changes weather patterns//cycles. i dont know about you guys but im not looking forwards to temperatures below zero degrees fahrenheight and having to deal with extreme freezing [ if the ice age does occur in my//your lifetime ]. again. this is what i think and what ive heard/learned from other people and short segments from documentaries. feel free to post what you think about earth and what us humans are driving it into.
[ edit ] sorry if this is random. but its something that i was concerned about. also if you do help support the earth//environment *hugs to you!*

I'll beleive it when I freeze to death. Or drown. Or get swept away by a giant tsunami. Or by invasion of radioactive crickets. In the meantime, I'll go enjoy drawing and leave the order of ulcer for later

And pssst, please don't use caps and spaces anymore to make your thread titles get more attention.
...also please put something in your sketchbook too. Don't you have a fine artsy squid-like critter to show us?

hold on a sec.... I just read all about Global warming... so, if we wait and do nothing, the new ice age will cancel out the global warming and everything will be fine.

Yes. but the ice age will last for millions of years. at least it will be extremely cold instead of extremely hot. your better off freezing to death than getting heat exhaustion - since intense heat is extremely uncomfortable. yuck!
but people will most likely find a way to survive around the ice age. i also heard that there are new species coming into the world when the new ice age comes around. neat! some saber toothed polar bear thing is arriving lol
thatll be fun....... *saber toothed bear rages madly in an empty town, tilts its head. "aw man. no screaming people. no food... mrrh" *

Wikipedia is your friend, "The theory never had strong scientific support. At present, the Earth is not considered to be cooling, but rather to be in a period of global warming mostly attributed to human activity"

the ice age can't happen in ten years because the world is ending in 2012. The Mayans said so!
edit: the Mayans also invented television

Half of the earth tilts away from the sun and it gets cold. Everyone freaks out about it being cold. Why is it so cold?! Oh my god, the world is going to freeze over! Everyone move to Miami!
Six months later that half of the earth tilts towards the sun and it gets hot. Oh my god! Ozone and other pollutants are melting the polar ice caps! The earth will flood! Run for your lives! All is lost!
While I'm all for taking steps towards a cleaner environment, there really is no need to freak out about it. It's not likely to happen in our lifetimes or even our grandchildren's.
I'm wholly annoyed by doomsday conspiracists. Remember y2k? Oh man. Just chill and try to do your part to help out the environment. If something does happen, it's likely far out of our control anyway.
And don't support ethanol, demand a completely non-polluting fuel like electric or hydrogen. Besides, don't support an industry that the government subsidizes. You'd be paying extra taxes just to pay more at the pump. Although we're probably doing the same thing right now, but the idea is that we stop doing it.
That's a different argument, I guess.

The world is going to end when God says so [ im a strong christian ]. but anyways. maybe after this major heat wave, the world will glaze over like a krispy creme donut. except it will be extremely cold. with people developing so much, it seems to quicken the pace of this whole global warming thing up. plus the air is much more filthy. hmm. sad. the united states used to all be lush forests, plains, valleys, deserts, grasslands, etc before we came around. why couldnt it stay that way? its the perfect continent [ north america ]. maybe planting national forests or "forests" will help with the pollution thing. more nature = good. but do you all think the national forests are going to stay that long? no one can hurt them right? *is a major nature peep*
humans are literally an experiment gone totally wrong
