The Ice Age Challenge refers to the challenge that we face globally to create a new foundation for living when the coming Ice Age climate shuts down most of the world's agriculture, possibly 100 to 150 years from now. The novel is the first part of the second episode of the series, The Lodging for the Rose, an eight-part science-fantasy centered on universal love, by Rolf A. F. Witzsche. - We truly are in a race against time, the greatest race since the dawn of man, 'racing' to create the technologies, economies, finances, politics, and social cultures that enable us to shift agriculture into efficient indoor facilities in order to protect our food production in the coming Ice Age environment. The Earth has been in an Ice Age for 1.8 million years, interspersed by the occasional warm period, like the present one that is ending in spite of global warming. The necessary infrastructures for survival are technologically feasible, but will we empower ourselves to create them? That appears to be less certain. It seems that we have been put in race without the skills for it. But then, don't we have the potential to be fast learners? In the course of exploring the question the novel touches on the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Aryan invasion in historic India, the face of Islam, the fascist holocaust, depopulation, global warming, nuclear fusion power, indoors agriculture, and principles of marriage, sex, culture, and science.

Mankind is the child of the Ice Age. Our more than 2-million-year history extends through the entire Pleistocene Ice Age Epoch. We were shaped by the need to be creative to survive, and still are. Now that our warm interglacial epoch is nearly over, we find ourselves challenged to be creative once again as the global agriculture and with it our food-supply will be radically diminished once we get back into the Ice Age World. Can we protect our agriculture in indoor facilities? That sounds like science fiction, right? It will take a hundred years to do it. But will we upgrade our human dimension to do it, especially in the way we relate to one-another as human beings? We are deeply divided to the very grassroots social level, and isolated. The needed Ice Age Renaissance requires a taller foundation. The novel explores the countless dimensions that are involved in breaking the ice in our social domain, at the level of sexual and marital division and isolation, towards becoming sublime as human beings. The great renaissance principles of universal love and of the advantage of the other are threaded through the story, putting a new light on sex and marriage relationships and expanding them into the universal dimension. This novel is Episode 2B of the science fantasy series, The Lodging for the Rose, by Rolf A. F. Witzsche.

We are looking at 3 distinct processes of the Ice Age unfolding in the escalating climate change on the road to the Ice Age.Phase 1: Cosmic-ray induced global cooling and climate collapse.Phase 2: The dimming of the Sun starts when the solar wind stops.Phase 3: Primer Fields collapse - hibernating Sun starts the Ice Age.The Ice Age Challenge is not of a type that can be responded to reactively, similar to nuclear war. If we delay our response till it happens, it will be too late. Nor is the actual Phase 3 start-up of the Ice Age of critical importance. The critical phase is Phase 1, the phase of the climate collapse that devastates agriculture as the Earth gets colder and drier, year after year, for the next 15 years. If we rise to the challenge and build us a climate independent New Word with technological infrastructures, such as indoors agriculture afloat in the tropics, we will create ourselves a secure future, the brightest ever, versus having none. But will we do it?

The many hundreds of books and thousands of academic papers on the topic of Pleistocene (Ice Age) art are limited in their approach because they deal only with the early art of southwestern Europe. This is the first book to offer a comprehensive synthesis of the known Pleistocene palaeoart of six continents, a phenomenon that is in fact more numerous and older in other continents. It contemplates the origins of art in a balanced manner, based on reality rather than fantasies about cultural primacy. Its key findings challenge most previous perceptions in this field and literally re-write the discipline. Despite the eclectic format and its high academic standards, the book addresses the non-specialist as well as the specialist reader. It presents a panorama of the rich history of palaeoart, stretching back more than twenty times as long in time as the cave art of France and Spain. This abundance of evidence is harnessed in presenting a new hypothesis of how early humans began to form and express constructs of reality and thus created the ideational world in which they existed. It explains how art-producing behaviour began and the origins of how humans relate to the world consciously.

The study of the Quaternary ice age has revolutionized ideas about Earth system change and the pace of landscape and ecosystem dynamics. The Ice Age: A Very Short Introduction looks at evidence from the continents, the oceans, and the ice core records, and the human stories behind it all. Jamie Woodward examines the remarkable environmental shifts that took place during the Great Ice Age of the Quaternary Period. He explores the evolution of ideas, evaluates the contributions of the leading players in the great debates, and presents some of the ingenious methods that have been used to retrieve information about the recent geological past. In an era of warming climate, the study of the ice age past is now more important than ever. This book examines the wonders of the Quaternary ice age - to show how ice age landscapes and ecosystems were repeatedly and rapidly transformed as plants, animals, and humans reorganized their worlds. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.
