    The last glacial period, which was one of the coldest epochs of the last ice age, saw ice sheets completely covering Antarctica and Greenland. The ice in North America covered modern New York City, reaching down to the Great Lakes, which were actually formed by melted ice.

      That is a lot of ice, do you think that global warming will keep anything like this from ever happening again.

      On the contrary. Global warming may actually cause this to happen again. Global warming is not a uniform rise in temperature around the world. It is a rise in the average global temperature. Some places are getting really hot, causing land-based ice to melt and raising the sea level. This may cause more intense storms and even disrupt the flow of the world’s wind patterns.
      Earth has a constant system of wind in the upper atmosphere which follows basically the same current all the time. The winds are the reason that some places have a cold climate despite being at the same latitude as places with warmer climates. If the wind patterns are disrupted, it may cause drastic climate change all over the world and possibly bring about a new ice age.
