Question:
Is there going to be another ice age in the next 1,000 years?



Replies:
Probably not within 1,000 years, maybe within 10,000 years and almost certainly within 100,000 years. The trend has been more toward warming than cooling lately, but these things are unpredictable: there is some evidence that a sudden rapid warming may have preceded the last ice age.
