The Earth is warming. Ohio used to have glaciers only 12,000 years ago and they have been receding ever since, so we have had global warming for quite a while. We do not know if at the end of ice ages if an acceleration occurs. We do know that during the life of Earth there usually is no ice at all.


Records only go back to 1880, a mere blink in earth time. I am still not a believer that man is the cause. I still believe it is just a cycle in earth history. Remember this area was also a rajin forest at one point!
