Antarctic ice sheet is an 'awakened giant'

New Scientist Breaking News - Antarctic ice sheet is an 'awakened giant'

From the scientific point of view it is now very likely that there will be again another Ice Age, quite soon, in the world, that we shall have the north part of the world all frozen like it used to be, and we're beginning to have natural disasters, from the scientists' study it seems likely that we should soon begin to have these great changes in the earth's climate so people will not be able to live where they have, and the oceans will rise, and many cities will be flooded, like London, and Calcutta, and so on. These things, they say, will happen, according to scientific theory, in about forty years at the most, but maybe even quicker. - J.G. Bennett as heard on Robert Fripp's "Exposure" album, circa 1979.
