Take it to the Bank Prediction
The current interglacial period we're in will end and we will descend into another ice age or glacial period. It's not a question of if but of when. From the lengths of the past three recent interglacials (all of which had much warmer temperatures than now, which necessarily would have resulted in the repeated extinction of polar bears), it would appear that the new ice age will be coming sooner rather than later.
I think we ought to name the new ice age the Gore glacial period after the all knowing Nobel Laureate.
