And I am simply pointing out that if we accept the premise that humanity can change the climate in one direction then we must accept the premise that we can change it in the other. Hence if we can warm the planet we can cool it and if you think that it is asinine to think we can precipitate an ice age then you should re-examine your entire premise there sparky.
Your counter premises are feasible. Certainly humans could change the earth systems in ways that would act to cool the planet (global nuclear war for example). But that isn't our problem right now, because most of the forcing that human activity is currently introducing into the environment are forcings that tend to warm. So I don't see what your point is.
