Ice Age cometh


The letter from Michael Wilson was right on target and beautifully articulated! I intend to copy it and send it to everyone I think would appreciate his views. The statement “We are one major volcanic event away from an Ice Age” was particularly apropos. Let’s hope Yellowstone doesn’t blow and send us into another Ice Age.

Humans didn’t really start to thrive as a species until the last ice age was over. The problem with the environment is more the result of overpopulation than human-caused climate change. Maybe it will take another Ice Age to bring our human population down to a level compatible with living on this planet.
