In a number of essays Isaac Asimov wrote, he described how the current continental position leads to ice ages in the Northern Hemisphere, and that we are due for one in a thousand years or so. Do you know of any research which might show that the current "heat wave" we're having, which is certainly in part human induced, is preventing that coming ice age? I keep thinking. Humans are so good at creating heat in whatever they do. Heat is a form of energy, one especially useful in tackling a water-ice bound moon, or a cold nearby planet. How can that heat be creatively trapped and used for good instead of evil? Oops. Sorry. Two questions. Answer whichever you choose and I'll try working on the other. Thank you. Mary
