Interesting article on Discovery Channel, I think this past week end,
about ice cores from the Artic being studied for reference to warming,
on a global basis.  The jist of it was that there has been global
warming for the past 30,000 years, part of an interglaciation period. 
They then went into sudden changes in weather can lead to climatic
change.  At least one scenario has it that a warming trend in weather
can lead to a cooling snap in climate.  Tentative data indicated that
the change could come in a matter of decades, or less, and quickly
change the climate on a global basis.  

Not quite a puff piece on the tv, but making some points that perhaps
the global warming is more of a cycle, and less of a catastrophy. 
Unless your human and want to worry about what cannot be changed.
