Next Ice Age

  1. Jan 18, 2005 #1
    Our current interglacial period has lasted about 11,500 years, now the common figure is that interglacial figures usually last around 11,000 years.

    Has anyone heard any convincing evidence that the next ice age is indeed going to be upon us soon?

    There isn't and it will not. We have to wait several tens of thousend years before the next "Martitieme Isotope Stage" event. More later.
