However, humanity is burning fossil fuels and increasing atmosphere's $$\ce{CO2}$$ content.

Should we expect a new glacial age after this interglacial or humans will avoid it and Holocene will become a new climatic epoch?

• Interesting, I think there would be another ice age or mini ice age because one chemical reaction is capable of being stronger than most man-made GHG emisssions. – MooseSmart Apr 14 at 16:55
• @BearSmart read the answer. Next enter in glaciar would take place in 50.000 years. Seeing how Science advance in the last siecles we will for sure have technology to avoid being freezed at NA and Eurasia. Or who knows? We migth move to the equatorial zones because it is better for the planet to enter at an ice age – Universal_learner Apr 22 at 16:33
