When one day, maybe in the not too distant future, the planet will reach the end of its pendulum and start cooling again, humanity will be once again in a dire situation. Our politicians will be the first to point out, that we are the cause of the troubles - as usual, and start imposing taxes on contributions
to cooling. Start saving your carbon emission certificates today to offset your future taxes! Make sure these are inheritable though, it may take longer than a generation!
Wow, did't take a generation.

||Nothing like an open mind DrCurry! You forgot this was the "halfbakery".
||You only have to go back about fifty years
to the last cycle, where many people were
predicting global cooling.
||However, [MB] there is a marked difference between "many people" and "entire unanimous respected scientific community"
||[jutta] It's slightly advocaat ("let's all save
our emission certificates") but it's on the
grey edge of being an idea ("establish a
system of recording carbon emissions,
against a time when they'll be seen as
beneficial"), albeit a rather tongue-in-
||Oh, d'oh! I didn't get that - thaks for explaining (and saving this idea. For future generations when there's not enough nonsense, perhaps.)
