Stock Up On Furs & Snowshoes

There's a new Ice Age approaching!

Remember nearly a decade ago when it was just Vault-Co, Robert Felix and a handful of nuts standing on the ice floes? Well, we've got a crowd now and they are some of the best climatologists on Earth! Looks like half the planet wishes they'd jumped on before we floated away.

The majority are almost always wrong. Even on those rare occasions they are right it is always for the wrong reasons. All we were doing was sticking with the winners - our ancestors. They got it right, our modern generation got it all wrong.

So when does it actually start to get colder? 2012?

By the looks of it here we're again skipping winter.

When pictures seem alive with movement free
When boats like fishes swim beneath the sea...
The tides will rise beyond their ken
To bite away the shores, and then

The mountains will begin to roar
And earthquakes split the plain to shore.
And flooding waters, rushing in
Will flood the lands with such a din
That mankind cowers in muddy fen
And snarls about his fellow men...

And in some far-off distant land
Some men - oh such a tiny band
Will leave their solid mount
And span the Earth, those few to count
Who survives this and then
Begin the human race again.

But not on lands already there
But on ocean beds, stark, dry and bare.
...Not every land on earth will sink
But these will wallow in stench and stink
Of rotting bodies of beast and man
Of vegetation crisped on land.

But the land that rises from the sea
Will be dry and clean and soft and free
Of mankind's dirt and therefore be
The source of man's new dynasty.
...Mother Shipton. (circa 1500AD)
