Of course, we are still coming out of that last ice age...Technically, we're in an "interglacial" - a short (typically circa 10K years) break in an ice age (currently at 2.6 million years). And probably near the end of it.The long-term trend?No member of genus Homo has lived in a world as warm as the day before that asteroid collided with Mexico and apparently finished off the large dinosaurs.Future outlook?If we are lucky, it'll mostly be getting colder for the next 400 years, then level out for a couple hundred years and start to warm up again but even at the peak about a thousand years from now probably not be as warm as it is now.If we are not lucky, it'll be getting a LOT colder for the next 20,000 years, then level out for about 40,000 years...http://joannenova.com.au/2010/02/the-big-picture-65-million-...
