Got to love this, with everyone running around yelling the sky is falling in, or in this case, the planets going to bake with global warming, New Scientist reports that there is a risk of a miniice age. Sometimes I wish people would actually start taking a serious look at history. I heard some idiot on the ABC the other day ranting about how this year in Australia was the hotest on record, and yet the conclusion was based on….wait for it….50 years of records!! Any ametuer scholar of history knows that Europe went through intense cold periods during the second mellinium, as well as other periods which were warmer. No one stops to think and ask whether the warming/ cooling phenomenon is just part of the earths natural changes, do they!
