Scientists Claim Another Ice Age Could Be Imminent

Scientists using computer simulations to study Antarctic sea ice have released new findings indicating that the earth could be heading for another Ice Age. As The Daily Mail reports:

Scientists studying Antarctica sea ice warn a rise in accumulation could spark the next ice age.

Computer simulations show that an explosion in ice circling the frozen desert would act as a lid on the ocean and block it from exchanging carbon dioxide with the atmosphere.

This is capable of causing a reverse greenhouse effect, which would ultimately cool the earth and send our planet into an ice age for the first time in over two million years.

The last major ice age is believed to have ended about 2.5 million years ago during the Pleistocene era.

Another ice age would be completely devastating for many human communities on the planets and lead to untold misery and disruption.
