Humans prevent ice age

What ever happened to global warming? I did a piece a while back that looked at the latest research. The conclusion of that research is that global warming is probably solar induced.

Well not so fast. Some new research shows that man may be preventing the coming of an ice age.

Anthropologist Dr Benny Peiser, from Liverpool John Moores University, said: "If the research findings are correct, a radical change in the perception of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions will be required.

"Instead of driving us to the brink of environmental disaster, human intervention and technology progress will be seen as vital activities that have unintentionally delayed the onset of a catastrophic ice age."
Instapundit has a link to the article (for Science Digest Readers - free or you can pay $30). You can read an abstract of the article for free. The abstract "A test of the overdue-glaciation hypothesis" is pretty complete with charts graphs and footnotes. Worth a look.
