VIntage Value Venture - For The Coming Ice Age

-78 degrees in Alaska
-49 degrees in Slovenia
Now our friends at Pravda have warned us that
Earth is on the brink of an Ice Age

The earth is now on the brink of entering another Ice Age, according to a large and compelling body of evidence from within the field of climate science. Many sources of data which provide our knowledge base of long-term climate change indicate that the warm, twelve thousand year-long Holocene period will rather soon be coming to an end, and then the earth will return to Ice Age conditions for the next 100,000 years.

Most of the long-term climate data collected from various sources also shows a strong correlation with the three astronomical cycles which are together known as the Milankovich cycles. The three Milankovich cycles include the tilt of the earth, which varies over a 41,000 year period; the shape of the earth’s orbit, which changes over a period of 100,000 years; and the Precession of the Equinoxes, also known as the earth’s ‘wobble’, which gradually rotates the direction of the earth’s axis over a period of 26,000 years. According to the Milankovich theory of Ice Age causation, these three astronomical cycles, each of which effects the amount of solar radiation which reaches the earth, act together to produce the cycle of cold Ice Age maximums and warm interglacials.

And let's face it....if it is reported in must be true.

So how do we stay both chic and warm in the new winter wonderland?

Maybe a certain young NY jewelry designer and blogger needs to be wholesaling some old stock out to a certain Beverly Hills estate jewelry firm.....

I'm right down the road from ya baby and preparing for glacial weather here means putting on a cardigan and a gossamer scarf. Boots optional!
