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