While at the same time, glaciers in the Old World reached as far south as...
Berlin. If you ignore the Alps that had their own ice cap. Northern Africa
won't ice over anytime soon. -- There was an interesting little paper in
Science on August 23rd on how we're delaying the next ice age by 50,000
years, if not "forever".

An attack against someone's scientific (or unscientific) methods is IMHO
obviously not an attack against any person. Sounds schizophrenous? I think
it should.
