Salty Mediterranean could lead to ice age

An increasingly salty Mediterranean Sea may start new ice sheet growth in the next few decades, according to new American research.The theory states that the amount of solar radiation that hits the Earth influences the Earth's climate system – with a knock-on effect on the advance and retreat of the Earth's glaciers. It is not the total amount of solar energy, rather the seasonality and location of solar energy around the Earth, impacting the contrasts between the seasons. The ice age of 150,000 years ago runs counter to this theory because it occurred when a large amount of summer sunlight was hitting temperate regions. According to the Milankovitch theory, under these conditions, ice sheets should shrink, not grow.
