Answers

The world has started bearing the brunt of global warming. Nevertheless, environmental experts seem to have found some reasons for cheer. According to new research, all the carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere could mean no more ice ages anytime soon. Ice ages naturally occur about every 100,000 years or so as the pattern of earth’s orbit changes with time and alters the way the sun strikes the planet’s surface.
