Mini Ice Age?
 
So I heard today that Russian scientists are predicting that we'll be in a mini ice age by the year 2012.... has anyone else heard this? Any news articles I can read up on?

I haven't heard anything like that, but aren't we melting instead of freezing? hmmmm, interesting to know.

I vaguely remember something about it on the national geo or discover channel. It has something to do with the Atalantic ocean "conveyor belt" (I think thats what they called it)
Here is an article I found on it.
http://news.nationalgeographic.com/n...0_ice_age.html
It happened not to long ago (geographicly speaking) when the Vikings tried to settle on Greenland.
Heres another one thats pretty interesting

The Mayan peoples predicted the world would end on Feb 21, 2012.

i find it rather hilarious how on the news they were talking about global warming. They even had TV show on discovery (i think anyways) about what would happen if the earth was up to 6 degrees warmer, and now they're talking about a mini ice age.

I dunno, i think a lot of junk on the new is just that, junk. And they just like to say stuff on there to get a reaction out of people.

My fiance's dad is all into watching the news like 24/7 and i really have no interest in it, and i find a lot of the stuff on there is, to put it nicely, horse poo.

ok i'm going to stop there. but that's my 2 cents on the news and global warming/mini ice age :)
