    How about we meet in the middle and say since there is only one earth we will be conservative with its environment?

    Oh hell, I am not even disagreeing with that. Just that if we wanted to prevent another ice age what would we do? Release greenhouse gasses.

    Notice I don't think any one hurricane or cold season or hottest year ever is caused by man alone. I just don't wanna die a few years after finding out I errored on the side of risk instead of caution.

    there is no preventing an ice age... or its eventual thawing....

    the earth warms and cools.

    Mass extinctions happen...it is the way of this world. The earth does not care if humans like and survive best in.... warm

    On the contrary, we are preventing the beginning of an ice age right now.

    The physics of the situation is simple. You add GHGs to the atmosphere, the earth will warm. And, since removing CO2 from the atmosphere takes a lot of time, it will stay warm for a long time. Now the physical laws do not care whether the GHGs are the result of volcanos, or flood volcanism impigning on coal seams or clathrates, or mankind burning the coal and melting permafrost and ocean clathrates. The physics are the same, the earth will warm, warm rapidly when the GHGs are added rapidly. And that rapid warming will destabalize the normal climatary cycles.

    We are already seeing this at a much lower warming than we expected.
