Should I Buy A Down Jacket Or A New Fan??

Global warming or an ice age which will it be? As humanity is increasingly aware and concerned by our effect on the earth's fragile climate system; scientists are not sure if man made climate changes are even noticeable and that if fact they may even be a drop in the bucket.

After a winter that is breaking many "pre-global warming" records those in the know are starting to wonder if maybe we should get down jackets instead of solar powered fans to prepare for the earth's next climate shift. Lower solar activity may cause an ice-age that could compare with one that lasted 5 centuries and caused a lot of trouble,

"The last time the sun was this inactive, Earth suffered the Little Ice Age that lasted about five centuries and ended in 1850. Crops failed through killer frosts and drought. Famine, plague and war were widespread. Harbours froze, so did rivers, and trade ceased."

I know we have to look longer than one winter for any significant climate assumptions. I have to say that either way you are leaning- neither global warming nor a little ice age sounds too appealing.
