I agree that all the doom and gloom talk needs taken with a grain of salt. I am old enough to remember the first Earth Day and about that time I also read Erlichs (sp?) "The Population Bomb". Tons of dire warnings of imminent disaster.
None of it came true, yet the warnings still get great media attention. I guess no one read about the boy who cried wolf.
If an Ice Age is coming, I think it is pretty arrogant of man to think he has the power to stop it.

Me too. Return of the Ice Age was the rage back then too.

According to Jimmy Carter's Global 2000 Report which I read in full from the library back in the 80's, we should all already be long dead.
