Is Climate Change a problem (or happening)?

Glaciologically, ice age implies the presence of extensive ice sheets in the northern and southern hemispheres.[1] By this definition, we are in an interglacial period—the Holocene—of the ice age that began 2.6 million years ago at the start of the Pleistocene epoch, because the Greenland, Arctic, and Antarctic ice sheets still exist.[2]

And Wikipedia is the ultimate and final word I suppose?

And it has been since shortly after the earth was formed..... for about 3.5 billion years.
Why?

They predicated an ice age for the 70's. Was that true?

And your point is??

I haven't heard anyone talk about global cooling, but the effects of global warming are taking place right NOW. Crops are failing in Africa, the ice caps are melting islands are being flooded, NASA reports the ocean water level is increasing and becoming acidified. To deny climate change is to deny the world around you

And again, I'll ask why did we not have an ice age as they predicted? Could they have been wrong?
If you believe in scientific evidence, then you can't deny the earth goes through changes over hundreds and thousands of years. What caused the original ice age? What caused the ice to recede? The point is that the earth has changed over thousands of years, without man. Global warming, climate change, whatever label you want to give it, has occurred when there were no men or emissions to specifically cause it.
Al Gore and the climate change crowd are the biggest snake oil salesman of all time.

NASA has to do something to justify being funded. It moved from rockets to global warming. All they are doing is trying to do is keep their jobs and the money flowing.

Like asking "is the Earth round?"
