The real reasons for climate changes are uneven solar radiation, terrestrial precession (that is, axis gyration), instability
of oceanic currents, regular salinity fluctuations of the Arctic Ocean surface waters, etc. There is another, principal reason?solar activity and
luminosity. The greater they are the warmer is our climate.
Astrophysics knows two solar activity cycles, of 11 and 200 years. Both are caused by changes in the radius and area of the irradiating solar surface.
The latest data, obtained by Habibullah Abdusamatov, head of the Pulkovo Observatory space research laboratory, say that Earth has passed the peak of
its warmer period, and a fairly cold spell will set in quite soon, by 2012. Real cold will come when solar activity reaches its minimum, by 2041, and
will last for 50-60 years or even longer.
According to this, those who are presently children will have a colder future toward the end of their lives.

Also worth noting:
Carbon dioxide cannot be bad for the climate. On the contrary, it is food for plants, and so is beneficial to life on Earth.
Bearing out this point was the Green Revolution?the phenomenal global increase in farm yields in the mid-20th century. Numerous experiments also prove
a direct proportion between harvest and carbon dioxide concentration in the air.
According to this, carbon dioxide is GOOD for the Earth. If you are an
environmentalist, limiting CO2 production is a bad thing to do.
