OSLO (Reuters) - Global warming is likely to disrupt a natural cycle of ice ages and contribute to delaying the onset of the next big freeze until about 100,000 years from now, scientists said on Wednesday.
In the past million years, the world has had about 10 ice ages before swinging back to warmer conditions like the present. In the last ice age that ended 12,000 years ago, ice sheets blanketed what is now Canada, northern Europe and Siberia.
In a new explanation for the long-lasting plunges in global temperatures that cause ice ages, scientists pointed to a combination of long-term shifts in the Earth's orbit around the sun, together with levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

IOW...."Disregard all our previous predictions and let's go with Wednesday's predictions...until the next time we predict....something else."
We’ll eat cheap during winter! HORRIBLE!
these people think planet earth is the size of their brain and they can put a hat on it to warm it up
Well I guess I’d better put away my winter woolies for a while.
May I add...well paid idiots.
Weather.com needs to have a tab for the 100,000 year forecast.
Complete bull$#!+ qualified as usual with the cowardly proviso “could”. As if the exhalations of one tiny part of the thin green scum we call “life” on this rock can affect a cycle based on solar and planetary perturbations.
“Reality could stave off Global Warming for the next 100,000 years”
No rocks for Hillary’s hooch might be a good thing.
I don't believe it's happening, but I'm in favor of it.
I don’t expect to live 100,000 more years but, hating winter as I do, this gives me hope.
You have been pinged because of your interest in environmentalism, alarmist wackos, mainstream media doomsday hype, and other issues pertaining to global warming.
Please ping me to all note-worthy threads on global warming.
Works for me.
wow where did all those coal plants and SUVs come from back then?
Wait, I thought global warming was going to give us all duck feet and now it is a good thing? I am confused. We need to spend 41 trillion to get to the bottom of the whole good/bad thing.
