Robert Felix - The Coming Ice Age
February 3, 2011
Could the next ice age begin any day? If so, what is the evidence for it? We talk with author Robert Felix about the coming ice age. Robert Felix, a former architect, became interested in the ice-age cycle back in 1991. He spent the next eight and a half years, full-time, researching and writing about the coming ice age. Robert's book is called, "Not by Fire but by Ice". Robert Felix argues convincingly that, rather than runaway heating due to humans' burning fossil fuels, the world is much more likely to face rapid onset of the next ice age in the near future. His latest book, "Magnetic Reversal and Evolutionary Leaps" is something we focus on in the second hour for our members. Both his books connect in an interesting way. Robert suggests that we are in for some big changes. The question is how soon can we expect the ice age to being? Stay with us as we explore the coming ice age, magnetic reversal and evolutionary leaps.
