The Ice Story

February 2012
News 'n' More;Feb2012, Vol. 5 Issue 2, p21
The article provides information on the Ice Age, wherein the ice crept on until it covered almost all of the U.S. and Europe. The last Ice Age ended around 11,500 years ago. According to experts, the next Ice Age will be delayed because the carbon emissions are very high. The length of years needed for the atmospheric carbon dioxide level to drop is also discussed.
