Who out there remembers when scientists told us the 'ice age' was going to return? [circa late 70's]

Who out there remembers when scientists told us the 'ice age' was going to return? [circa late 70's] Topic: Circa research

Question: Does anyone see the parallels between the current global warming and previous ice age theories? Maybe scientists really don't know much about the Earth and this is just a way to keep research funds flowing in? The 'newest' attempt at maintaining a level of credibility for the 'global warming' scientist is to attempt to link the two theories, sure seems like there are just guessing (or have $$ or politcal agendas?!?). Let me know what you think.

Well, I wasn't born then but it could still happen. Technically we are well overdue for one, so one should arive soonish. However "soon" an be in 10 years or a million years. Besides, scientist base these estiments on past record and the planet's cycles change with time. If it is global warming you're alluding at it could well bring about an ice age. Strange but true (or at least possible). If large ice masses were to melt , vast quantities of cold water will flow into the ocean's bringing their overall temperature (and the planet's temperature right along with it) way down. That could be enough to flip the climate into a cold faze.

Aidith Originally Answered: Car finance paperwork doesn't reflect late fee and now they claim I owe a late fee. What is the law on this?
Send another letter to them via registered mail if you didn't send the first letter that way. Make sure your letter is specific, ask for exactly what you want (copy of contract, account summary, etc.) Keep copies of everything you send them and anything they send you. If you speak to them on the phone, make notes that include the date, time, and what was discussed. If you come to an agreement on the phone make sure they put the agreement in writing and send it to you before you do anything. This is basic contract law. If the contract you have with them does not include anything about late fees, you are not obligated to pay them. Any civil judge in this country would refer back to that contract for a schedule of fees. If they do not provide you with the documents you requested do not pay them. Their only recourse is to repossess your car or take you to civil court, which they won't do because they don't have any documentation to prove their claim. Also, get copies of your credit reports and make sure that they aren't claiming you are delinquent. If there is something on your credit report, file a dispute with the credit bureau. Go to the Better Business Bureau and file a complaint. The BBB will get in contact with them and help resolve the issue. The most important thing for you is to collect as much documentation as you can, just in case you end up in court.

Yes, I remember, and as I recall one of the leading theories was based on the observation that the polar ice caps were already shrinking. Apparently, if the ice caps melted enough to raise the oceans and flood large areas of the major continents, it would change the amount of sunlight being reflected back into space and possibly trigger a new ice age. Strange as it may seem, global warming and a new ice age are not mutually exclusive at all.

The "ICE AGE" they are talking about isn't going to happen for 30-40 Thousand years. That is what they have always said. Global warming IS happening NOW! Some years may be worse or better than others but the general trend is getting worse. Worse Hurricane's, Worse flooding, Worse droughts and the list goes on. The "ICE AGE" will come sometime in the far distant future, there just wont be any Humans or animals left to see it if global warming can't be stopped.

sure they were claiming the glaciers were starting to be and we were heading in the direction of yet another ice age contained in the 80s. in reality i became merely telling a freind that some human beings were turn flopping because the 1800s ice age international warming. I considered a teach on the historic previous channell about it. And it pronounced that the ny circumstances has turn flopped each and every 2 many years or so on them matters. and that i'm almost 50 so I bear in mind the 80s somewhat nicely.

I don't remember that but they are still saying stuff like that. It is a pendulum and they say the before the ice age happened last time, there was a period of global warming prior. And have you notice how different the climates are in the US compared to 15, 20 years ago. I think it is kind or wild and intriguing.

Yes i remember that but that was before we grasped the global warming problem that we are now faced with. Don't look for an ice age anytime soon. We are headed in the other direction very, very quickly!!

I do ! Due to "those ' scientists who claim that a global catastrophe will be unavoidable in the year 2011-2012 ( do to an asteriod ) .....these predictions are also from psycics & from the ancient time-lines that are inscribed in the pyrimids of Egypt and Mian temples !

Me, too -- actually much of the predictions were in the late 60's! We thought oil would run out in 20 years; and were struggling to understand greenhouse effects. This is why it is so important that today's environmental scientists not cry doom too quickly -- they lost a lot of credibility and we're still feeling the effects of it!

I am so sick of you people who have no respect for the UN. how DARE you question them? Have you no decency? How dare you sir? The UN has done so much good. They're a TOURIST attraction in New York. Didn't know that, did you? Ha! Those people are experts! You have no business questioning them. You're no expert. If you were an expert, they would have hired you. You probably applied for a job as a diplomat and they took one look at your haircut and frogwalked you to the door. What is your haircut, by the way. A mullet???! ha ha ha! No wonder you were sent packing. Get a haircut, you non-expert!
