"Global warming" will avert next Ice Age

Random scientist, desperate for publicity, releases ridiculous story about how man-made CO2 emissions will prevent the next Ice Age, and AFP is dumb enough to publish it (The Australian was also dumb enough to publish it, however, which is not a good sign for the only vaguely non-alarmist rag in Australia). Guess what, it's based on a computer model - you know, just like the IPCC models that accurately failed to predict the last 10 years of cooling:
According to the model, published in the British journal Nature by Crowley and physicist William Hyde of Toronto University, Canada, the next “bifurcation” would normally be due between 10,000 and 100,000 years from now.

The chill would induce a long, stable period of glaciation in the mid-latitudes, smothering Europe, Asia and North America to about 45-50 degrees latitude with a thick sheet of ice.

However, there is now so much CO2 in the air, as a result of fossil-fuel burning and deforestation, that this adds a heat-trapping greenhouse effect that will offset the cooling impacts of orbital shift, said Crowley.

And the moonbats at AFP conclude:
Last year, the UN's Nobel-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said greenhouse-gas emissions were already inflicting visible changes to the climate system, especially on ice and snow.

Left unchecked, climate change could inflict widespread drought and flooding by the end of the century, translating into hunger, homelessness and other stresses for millions of people.

I guess "other stresses" means having to read top-quality BS like this all day.

And you too can read it here.
