What I want to see is if the media hype engine will rev up as high for
global cooling as it did for global warming. Will it be symmetrical? Will
there be political movements urging us to hurl more greenhouse gases
into the atmosphere to save our planet from the advancing ice? Will
there be international treaties to pressure nations into cutting down some
of their CO2 hogging lifeforms?

Imagine the horrors: Oceans could recede, vast stretches of frozen
tundra could be covered in ice, beach resort towns could be left hundreds
of meters inland, causing the tourist industry to suffer. Cataclysmic change
in climate could burst forth over a mere few centuries! How will we ever
cope? spike
