Can humans survive another ice age?

During the past 200,000 years, homo sapiens have survived two ice ages. While this fact shows humans have withstood extreme temperature changes in the past, humans have never seen anything like what is occurring now.

What was life like 20000 years ago?

20,000 YEARS AGO. Last Glacial Maximum- a time, around 20,000 years ago, when much of the Earth was covered in ice. The average global temperature may have been as much as 10 degrees Celsius colder than that of today. The Earth has a long history of cycles between warming and cooling.

What was life like 10000 years ago?

In the Paleolithic period (roughly 2.5 million years ago to 10,000 B.C.), early humans lived in caves or simple huts or tepees and were hunters and gatherers. They used basic stone and bone tools, as well as crude stone axes, for hunting birds and wild animals.
