If I recall try googling the ice age, that might come up with some results, as well as try googling ocean current shifts and cooling of.

Global cooling? Umm, I think that could be caused in different ways. One is that the earth's orbit can possibly wobble, so the north pole and south pole move. Another is something that happened in Chile during that earthquake, it reconstructed the plates there or something, forgot what my teacher said. Ocean currents can also affect it, so that involves the moon as well. xD

It's an earth natural process, but I don't know how it happens... actually, the earth seems to be getting hot. I think I'll look for this info as well, it made me curious.

^ lol, you haven't been to Texas this past February, have you?

And what exactly do you mean by global cooling? I google it, wikipedia shows up, and it says it was a "hypothesis with little support in the scientific community" from the '40s. It just makes me wonder what you mean when you say global cooling. I'm intrigued, tell me more.
