Ice Ages have existed for every 90,000 of 100,000 years of Earth history and it's been 12,000 years since the last one. Global warming may have been the only thing that prevented the one we should be in now.

According to the world renowned scientist Ted Danson some thirty years ago, global cooling was about to ice encrust Malibu, so we must immediately destroy America. According to that world renowned scientist, Al Gore, global frying is about to melt Dansons ice, so we must destroy America. Now real scientists are---woe is me

Second, what is the uncertainty involved with those numbers?

It's all uncertainty, that's part of the problem. We know there were ice ages, of course, and we know what the atmosphere was basically like in the same periods for which we have ice cores - but correlation is not causation, etc., unless you are doing fundraising.

Quit your worrying and whining. Greenhouse gasses, CO2 Emissions, Ice-Ages, Nuclear wars, etc. etc. There are a million things that are capable of killing you. We are all going to die sometime and that is a fact. It is much better to go quick in a natural or un-natural disaster than die a slow death in some old-age home. I will give you some valuable advice. There is one precious cure to all of your problems and ailments. It is called (TIME).
