I've heard the Great Lakes are the largest glacial lakes in the world.

Where did those glaciers go again?

Oh, that's right. They melted. Never mind.

Ok serious question.
Why were the prediction's off.
by this time polar caps were supposed to be almost gone and temps and ocean levels were to rise dramatically.
Thanks.

Well I don't know where you are getting your info from, but its somewhat flawed or cherry picked data. But not to worry if the Arctic weather keeps moving south you will be building igloos instead of brick homes.

Some kind of warming must have occurred at that time. Of that, we're certain.

This is from the EPA website:

"Thousands of years later, the climate began to warm, melting and slowly shrinking the glacier. This was followed by an interglacial period during which vegetation and wildlife returned. The whole cycle was repeated several times."

I hope that helps.

Study what factors caused the Earth to cool and enter the glacial period, then what caused the Earth to warm afterwards. Correlate those with the conditions today and you will find that the greatest factor explaining the warm today is the burning of fossil fuels.

Whether the Earth warmed or cooled previously is not a concern to humanity today. What is a concern are the future problems of a warming planet with the consequent sea level rise and other climate changes that will cause problems for many millions.

Prediction is very difficult, especially if it's about the future.
