    For an Ice Age
    If you're on the equator, you'll probably experience nice temperate climate. If you're in Canada, Northern Norway, etc you'll think it sucks. It already goes down to -45 degs C. Parts of Antarctic have gone down to -89 degs C.

    A study done in Canada (sorry can't remember the uni) showed that people who live in warm climates are more likely to suffer cold injuries than those in cold climates.

    For Global Warming
    Temperate countries will get better weather but also come the insects and diseases.

    As for rapid cooling, there was a UK documentary about facts and fiction about global warming (sorry can't remember what it was called). I sat watching it with a phD geologist who confirmed much of what was said, including the finding about in a particular year within the span of a couple of months the earth did cool rapidly....out of season.....documented by the plants, insects, tree rings and ice core samples.

    So there are blips that happen in the weather.

    What I expect is more weather extremes. Far colder winters, followed by massively hotter summers and stronger summer storms. This is the greenhouse effect going wild. It's not a good thing at all.

    It will result in massive drought, then floods. Topsoil gets washed away, destroying farmland. Desertification proceeds.

    I think SG should build a dome and create a controlled environment so we can also have 4 seasons
