Can you say "Mexico"?

What, you mean at the cinema?

I reckon everyone will go and see it again, and a massive argument will break loose over whether or not Toy Story was better. Then, everyone will start up the quotes, like "Kar-ll, he's eating our salad!" and "Woo! Who's up for round two?!", not to mention "MOVE YOUR ISSUES OFF THE ROAD!" and "Ooh, what's this, pine cone!".

Ah no. I mean in real world.
Is there any known disaster management on ice age?

Maybe if we're lucky it would cancel out global warming perfectly and nothing would change...

People would move toward the equator, crank up the heat, look for ways to fight back glaciers, and deal with the social problems (overcrowding, food shortages). Probable population decline.

Ice age = spring time in Michigan. I doubt we'd notice a difference.

Get a nice new jumper.. and perhaps a hat.
Then I'd spend my spare time sending snotty letters to Greenpeace activists and all the other treehuggers who went on and on about global warming saying:
"Ha! So what do you say now smartarse?"

:rofl:

Ha-ha! But we're rather far from a new ice age, and global warming is a problem.

First they'd complain a bit about being cold, then complain a lot about being cold, shiver somewhat uncontrollably, and eventually die of cold-exposure. What else? :rolleyes: :tongue: Oh, and parents could no longer use the old complaint, "What are you trying to do, heat the entire outdoors?" when their kids left the door open in winter; "Yes" would be a reasonable answer. :rofl:
