Global warming--not?

Could global warming actually be an ice age in disguise? And for those who think Iowa is made up of only cornfields and baseball diamonds, here's a shot of yesterday's traffic in a snow storm near Cedar Rapids. I drove home in that exact mess--I left the University of Iowa at 5:00pm and it took nearly 2 hours to drive 35 miles, due to the umpteenth snowstorm this year (I've lost track at this point). And yet another major storm system is headed our way. Yikes! Check out the snowfall totals where I live, or visit the National Climatic Data Center for details on storms across the northern hemisphere.
