    Unlikely, we'll just start snow shoveling a lot more, put winter tires on our cars and wear warm clothes all year round.. It's not like the age age will have ice sheets traveling at 100 miles an hour southward, it's a very slow process and we have the technology to deal with that easily. :P

    From my point of view.

    The humans have disrupted the natural cycles so it is possble that it will pass a few dozen million years before a new ice age. (when it is time for some other great glaciation)


    However if that turns out to be the case the human civilization will not exist in so far future. Since evolution will take its tool and change many things about humans or humans will be merged with their technology far before the new ice age comes. Which itself is not a problem since classical ice ages dont cover the entire surface of the Earth, plus technology would help. So by the time the next ice will come it my not matter since the civilization will be spreading around the galaxy or even further.

    I foresee a lot of reverse migration, e.g., to Mexico.

I'm fascinated by the mammals that did survive the last ice age! If some of you think that humans and dinosaurs existed together and dinosaurs perished while humans survived, feel free to speculate what you think will happen to humans during the next ice age.
    Well I wonder what will happen in 2012, none event or catastrophic environmental cataclysm as some have predicted.

    I wasn't thinking anything would happen that soon.

    I guess lately I think more about ice ages which I know take a very long time. I don't pay a lot of attention to whatever's being said about 2012. I have no other reason to argue against it however.

    actually, i thought the opposite true that our use of fossile fuels is speeding up the ice age cycle?
