Scientists: Mass starvation possible as new Ice Age looms

• Terrence Aym
Worried geologists and climatologists are crunching the numbers and the totals they're arriving at equals the sum of all fears...A new Ice Age is looming and the only debate remaining is whether the Earth has already slipped into one or is it about to occur? North America is known as "the breadbasket of the world." An Ice Age will change that. When the Earth becomes gripped in the Ice Age warm periods contract, snow and ice deepen and travel southwards, the extreme northern polar ice melts, and northern cities will become unlivable. The great wheat, corn, soybean and oat fields of the U.S. and Canada will become wastelands—much, much worse than the famous dustbowl of the 1930s.
