Default will earth be destroyed by global warming, black hole, or ice age ?

Some people have suggested that a microscopic black hole, spawned by the powerful crash of subatomic particles racing through the LHCs tunnels, could potentially suck up the planet.

The potential for the worlds largest atom smasher to destroy Earth is one question weighing on the minds of some lay people as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) prepares to go online Wednesday and perhaps, reveal the existence of the so-called God particle.

===============

Contrary to the conventional wisdom of the day, the real danger facing humanity is not global warming, but more likely the coming of a new Ice Age.

What we live in now is known as an interglacial, a relatively brief period between long ice ages. Unfortunately for us, most interglacial periods last only about ten thousand years, and that is how long it has been since the last Ice Age ended.

How much longer do we have before the ice begins to spread across the Earth’s surface? Less than a hundred years or several hundred? We simply don’t know.

The last “little” Ice Age started as early as the 14th century when the Baltic Sea froze over followed by unseasonable cold, storms, and a rise in the level of the Caspian Sea. That was followed by the extinction of the Norse settlements in Greenland and the loss of grain cultivation in Iceland. Harvests were even severely reduced in Scandinavia And this was a mere foreshadowing of the miseries to come.

By the mid-17th century, glaciers in the Swiss Alps advanced, wiping out farms and entire villages. In England, the River Thames froze during the winter, and in 1780, New York Harbor froze. Had this continued, history would have been very different. Luckily, the decrease in solar activity that caused the Little Ice Age ended and the result was the continued flowering of modern civilization.

global warming ...

just turn the TV or radio on to get the latest on this method of destruction !

You don't need the internet, radio or TV. The "old fashioned way will still do!
The "Farmers Almanac" just hit the stands. "Global Cooling" is the prediction. What a Bummer with heating oil at $3.75 a gallon.
Just as with "who will occupy the White House next year?" There doesn't seem like there isany choice but "take what you get and just "Live with it as best as you are able."
You pay your taxes and stay out of Jail!

Does that mean the Moore will now come out with a Global Cooling movie and and then another Al Gore movie called "This Time I know I am right, a Really Inconvenient Truth", Global Cooling Do***entary Movie ?



quoted:

The Old Farmer's Almanac is going further out on a limb than usual this year, not only forecasting a cooler winter, but looking ahead decades to suggest we are in for global cooling, not warming."
"Based on the same time-honored, complex calculations it uses to predict weather, the Almanac hits the newsstands on Tuesday saying a study of solar activity and corresponding records on ocean temperatures and climate point to a cooler, not warmer, climate, for perhaps the next half century. "We at the Almanac are among those who believe that sunspot cycles and their effects on oceans correlate with climate changes," writes meteorologist and climatologist Joseph D'Aleo. "Studying these and other factor suggests that cold, not warm, climate may be our future."
Almanac believers will prepare for a hot summer in much of the nation's midsection, continuing drought conditions there and wild fire conditions in parts of California, with a cooler-than-normal season elsewhere. They'll also keep the car packed for the 2009 hurricane season, as the Alamanac predicts an active one, especially in Florida. But Editor Janice Stillman said it's the winter foreasts that attract the most attention, especially this year, with much higher heating prices.
So, in line with the weather and economy forecasts, the Almanac includes information on using wood for heat: the best wood, how to build a fire in a fireplace, whether to use a wood stove and how to stay warm — all winter — with a single log.
Here's the secret, popularized in 1777: Throw a log out an upstairs window, dash down the stairs and outside, retrieve the log, dash upstairs, throw the log out the window and so on. "Do that until you work up a sweat and you'll be warm all winter"

==========================

I prefer to go the BLACK HOLE way, it is fast and painless and you never know what is on the other side until we get there.
