When will a new ice age happen? Has there been any hint as to when it can happen? How will we know when a new global ice age has happened? I await some replies.



kind regards John Stefan

Assuming "ice age" refers to glacial maximum within this current ice age - Earth currently being in a glacial minimum within an ice age...

No-one knows but climate history and understanding of climate change suggest thousands to tens of thousands of years and with it possibly delayed or even prevented by long term persistence of raised CO2.

Not within the lifetimes of any person now living, unless some extreme and enduring rise in volcanic activity occurs first, that is sufficient to induce and sustain large scale expansion of global snow cover. That kind of volcanic activity would be a very strong hint.
