Ice Age Meltdown18,000 years ago there was a sudden change in climate which ends a global freeze which had lasted for several thousands of years.

Melting ice caps drive up sea levels to create coastlines we recognize today and great glaciers thaw dramatically to re-sculpture the landscape.

A mass extinction took place and as the human race adapted to these breath taking changes to their familiar environment, the seeds of our modern society were sown.

The Worlds climate changed very quickly, with dramatic consequences for all life on the planet. Today our world is heating up at a similar rate what can the lessons of the past teach us about surviving our future?

...we are still leaving the last ice age and that the period between the last ice age and the one before it experienced temperatures that exceed the current temperature of the Earth. In other words, the Earth is going to get hotter as part of it's natural cycle before once again becoming cold...
Well said.
And I'll tell you global warming caused by man is total bs. Everything is normal, with no major fluctuations occurring currently.
Of course, that could change fast. While you sit there and expect global warming, the grand solar minimum may cause a mini ice age very soon.

The planet is currently warming at a rate never seen before . The idiots above who use thes film to discount the fact tcan adaphat the earth is warming unnaturally fast, have a poor understanding of rates and time. Climate Change is upon us and mankind is speeding it up

Watched the first few minutes then realized it had been filmed for an audience ok with MTV-style nanosecond attention span clips. All bling.

this is a very interesting article. google it the scam is almost over......

Lawrence Solomon: Science getting settled

New, convincing evidence indicates global warming is caused by cosmic rays and the sun — not humans

The science is now all-but-settled on global warming, convincing new evidence demonstrates, but Al Gore, the IPCC and other global warming doomsayers won’t be celebrating. The new findings point to cosmic rays and the sun — not human activities — as the dominant controller of climate on Earth.

I was taught recently, at the University level, that we are still leaving the last ice age and that the period between the last ice age and the one before it experienced temperatures that exceed the current temperature of the Earth. In other words, the Earth is going to get hotter as part of it's natural cycle before once again becoming cold. The more people understand this, the more people will hopefully see through the global warming scam. For your average person, mostly content with what they are hearing on the news, it is important that documentaries like this exist. I was lucky enough to have a free-thinking, impartial professor, but not many people have that luxury.

It was not commercials, it was promotions for shows on the same channel that provided us with this show. Definitively survivable.

Otherwise I though the jumps between conclusions were far. Did not see much I would want to re-think or re-say. The end comments were also cheesy and a distraction from reality.

I guess I can live with the commercials, but why are there no other comments? I normally wait a while before commenting but I couldn't just leave you hanging there Lex. And you're right, it was interesting, at least as a reminder that we are not the only cause of global warming, and mother nature has gotten over it in the past.
