Earth heading for 'mini ice age' in just 15 years, scientists say

Nature always has to be factored in.

(There were several headlines on this today.)

This is illogical in the long term. In the short term it could happen as an oscillation which are always short cycles.

Consider that burning FF's inherently creates waste heat. We've got over a 100 years of that behavior and we aren't even done burning FF's for the indeterminate future.

Logic is deniable, but not avoidable.

Besides the data is incomplete as the ocean temperature value are typically surface values and a different study (on phys.org) say they've just discovered the ocean heat storage occurs at OTHER than the surface >

New study finds heat is being stored beneath the ocean surface

I think we just sped up or screwed with a natural warming cycle.

Past cycles indicate that we're probably going to loose the polar ice caps altogether before this process is done.

I dun think we'll have an ice age all of a sudden. I guess what they are calling one is mostly just a back and forth temperature wiggle as global climate shifts.
I don't really expect to have to live in an Ice Age...
