The length of the previous interglacials varied by thousands of years.
Ice ages were caused by a combination of several features of the Earth's
orbit. My recollection is that the next time serious cooling effects
will be experienced because of orbital factors is 60 000 years away. By
that time the fossil fuel age will be a very distant blip.
It is now very clear that CO2 and methane levels are far too high for us
to slide into another ice age for the next several centuries. However,
the ff age is a blip and we could easily destroy the ability of humans
living in 60 000 years time to counteract the cooling they will
For me this article speaks volumes.

I am glad we can close this off-topic for now. However I would like to record
here that it is the other way around. Nobody is promoting global warming: it is
happening. However climate change sceptics go into the denial of facts (e.g.
Doug in this thread) either because they are influenced or bought by the fossil
fuel lobby including many political parties and governments, or in order to
justify their own actions which are killing people every single day.
Of course it could also simply be trolling - I can't tell.
