An ice age is a long period of reduction in the temperature of the Earth's surface and atmosphere, resulting in the presence or expansion of continental and polar ice sheets and alpine glaciers. Earth is currently in the Quaternary glaciation, known in popular terminology as the Ice Age.

Before this current ice age, there were tropical ferns at the poles instead of ice caps and the temperature was 75°F worldwide.
