and found this article


which "finds" / declares that early and fairly modest global warming (from before the Industrial Revolution) caused us to miss start of an otherwise expected "glacial period" and we will likely continue to miss it for a 100,00 years???

This is a highly respected magazine. Why am I just learning of this by checking a footnote for a single sentence in the wikipedia summary? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_warming Footnote 145.

There is threat (stays warmer) but I'd also say there is positive value to missing a glacial period of tens of thousand of years in length. I can see the positive value part quicker. Apparently this is a done deal. So while we can't change it, it still might be appropriate to acknowledge this consequence.

If you have a science article that disputes this or explains it further, please post a link.

Darn, I was looking forward to being buried under a 5000 feet of ice.
