A New European Ice Age?
Article about the potential climatic impacts of disruptions in the thermohaline circulation system in the North Atlantic.
Astronomical Theory of Climate Change
NOAA Paleoclimatology Program educational material concerning the Milankovitch theory, which explains changes in the seasons as a result of changes in the earth's orbit around the sun.
Astronomical Theory Offers New Explanation For Ice
Article about research suggesting that cyclical changes in the location of the Earth's orbit causing differing amounts of extraterrestrial debris to come into the atmosphere, and not the Milankovitch theory, explain cycles of glaciation in the last million years.

100 million years to recent ice age, by Thomas J. Crowley, a marine geologist and climatogist.
The Great Climate Flip-Flop
Atlantic Monthly article reviews the abrupt (less than a decade transition) climate changes of the past, analyzes the role of the Gulf Stream's thermohaline circulation switching modes of operation, and presents three scenarios for the future, including potential methods for stabilizing the flip-flop tendencies.
