I think it would be naive to compare the current end-of ice age to the one's in Earth's past. By all accounts, these previous cycles took tens of millions of years to warm up, whereas the Earth's temperature has increased roughly 1.4 degrees over the last 100 years, in correlation with a 30% rise of Co2 in the atmosphere over the last 150 years.

In ten years the predicted radicalisation of weather (hotter summers, wetter winters) is predicted to leave 400 million people in danger of starvation or flooding.

I can understand that goverments may exaggerate the potential effects of global warmings, to justify higher taxes on oil etc and to try and gain more control, but they have also put punitive measures and targets upon themselves. This must be an indication that the problem exists.

What we do about it is our decision. But i am sure when the capitalist market comes under threat from it, the rich will do something about it.
