The Next Ice Age On Hold

Or in layman's terms, another Government committee that doesn't have a clue..

( - A federal advisory committee appointed by the Obama administration to produce a report on climate change says that if Earth’s climate were still “primarily controlled by natural factors”—rather than by man-made global warming—then the next ice age would occur within the next 1,500 years.
But now, because of humans, the committee says, the next ice age has been "delayed indefinitely."
Folks who can't predict weather next week are predicting globull warming and cooling?
“Where did all the discussion about global cooling come from?” it asks.
“First, temperature records from about 1940 to 1970 show a slight global cooling trend, intensified by temporary increases in snow and ice cover across the Northern Hemisphere," it says. "Unusually severe winters in Asia and parts of North America in 1972 and 1973 raised people’s concerns about cold weather. The popular press, including Time, Newsweek, and The New York Times, carried a number of articles about the cooling climate at that time.”
The report says average U.S. temperatures have increased 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit since 1895, but will increase anywhere from 3 degrees Fahrenheit to 10 degrees Faherenheit by the end of this century depending on future human activity.
Because of humans, the next ice has been delayed? Thank God for humans because it sure has been damn cold lately...
