Global Warming may cause the Next Iceage

While global warming is being officially ignored by the political arm of the Bush administration many groups and organizations are trying to get the point across. In quick summary, if enough cold, fresh water coming from the melting polar ice caps and the melting glaciers of Greenland flows into the northern Atlantic, it will shut down the Gulf Stream, which keeps Europe and northeastern North America warm. The worst-case scenario would be a full-blown return of the last ice age - in a period as short as 2 to 3 years from its onset - and the mid-case scenario would be a period like the "little ice age" of a few centuries ago that disrupted worldwide weather patterns leading to extremely harsh winters, droughts, worldwide desertification, crop failures, and wars around the world. Economicly speaking this would reek havoc on the entire world bringing such a dominant world to its knees. So how could the Bush party completely ignore a problem as big as this you ask? That is question that many US citizens have asked themselves in hope to firgure out what the Bush party has been thinking for the last 6 years.
