One of the most worrisome predictions about climate change may be coming true (washingtonpost.com)

The most worrisome climate change is the end of the current interglacial. We can easily live in a somewhat warmer world (note: the last interglacial was much warmer than today) but the coming return to the Ice Age will make our large-scale civilization very difficult.

Maybe not so much easily, but easier in comparison. Having lots of agricultural land go bad due to changing rainfall patterns is going to have an impact.
