Human-generated greenhouse gases emissions may delay the Earth’s next ice age by a minimum of 100,000 years. Carbon (CO2) emissions created by humans have been blamed for having many unpleasant effects on the planet, from severe droughts, to extreme weather, to pollution, to rising sea levels. However, a team of German scientists say that these CO2 emissions are likely the reason why there are no signs of a new ice age and why there won’t be one in the near future. The Industrial Revolution saved the planet from the onset…
