I was watching a Mega Disasters program about climate change on The History Channel last night that was predicting, are you ready for this, another ice age!
Mega Disasters : Mega Freeze.

Could North America and parts of Europe be headed for a "big chill?" Many experts fear that an abrupt climate change could have catastrophic effects across the planet, including devastating winters in some northern regions. New research has indicated to scientists that the climate is changing rapidly and unpredictably. In different parts of the world, we could be facing drought, floods, storms and extreme cold. Cataclysmic climate changes, similar to what may happen to us, have happened in the past. The great Mayan civilization was knocked out by drought in a few generations. The Little Ice Age battered Europe. Within a decade, freezing temperatures increased and incessant storms brought starvation, disease, and death to millions. Could this happen again?
I guess these guys didn't get the memo.................
