Upside-down "rivers" of warm ocean water may be one of the causes of Antarctica's ice shelves breaking up, leading to a rise in sea levels. But a new study suggests an increase in sea ice in a colder climate may lead to a much more devastating change in the Earth's climate another ice age.
Using computer simulations, the research suggests that an increase in sea ice could significantly alter the circulation of the ocean, ultimately leading to a reverse greenhouse effect as carbon dioxide levels in the ocean increase and levels in the air decrease.
One key question in the field is still what caused the Earth to periodically cycle in and out of ice ages, University of Chicago professor and the study's co-author, Malte Jansen, said in a statement. We are pretty confident that the carbon balance between the atmosphere and ocean must have changed, but we dont quite know how or why."

So, which is going to be, global warming or ice age?
Lol. These maniacal pseudoscientists are all over the map.
Whichever it is, its OUR fault, according to totalitarian leftists.
I have a good coat and wool socks. I’m good
They are bringing back the 70s, is disco far behind? /s
Both. And both are caused by humans so pay up!
Well, "climate change" pretty much covers it all.
I keep trying to 'splain to people that much of the earth is in an inter-glacial period and at some time we are going to wander back into another ice age cycle.
Ice ages are typically hemispheric, not global.
Cuttnhorse, geologist and horse dude
The answer used to be "Bush". Now it's "Trump".
Good. So now instead of inundating the coast line cities, the water will freeze and everyone will go ice skating.

There is no green house effect anywhere in earths atmosphere, even an actual glass greenhouse bleeds heat.
Back about 40 years ago they were saying we were going to have another Ice Age. I wish they would make up their minds.
Me. I think it was that burrito
I’m not sure what all this mumbo jumbo means but I know one thing
WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE.
One way or another. Ice age is as good as any other way.
Well, Retro 70's is kinda "in" right now! LOL
I specifically did a search, but for some reason it did not come up.
Thanks for being kind and just posting the link, without bashing me.
Quick! Breed more cows! Feed them food which gives them gas so they save the planet.

Willfull ignorance to keep that grant money coming in?
