I've been wondering where other good places to live below the radar might be- outside the U.S. and Mexico. Not a lot of volcanoes, hurricanes, tsunamis, etc. Somewhere green and temperate. I wonder how the U.K. would be in Scotland, Ireland, etc., or of they are too far north?

I don't feel like Aus. would be a good fit, too much U.S. military stuff going on there... :-(

I think there's too many U.S. folks going to Costa Rica and no volcanic, coastal areas for me, or small islands. Not safe probably...

EU is great for bennies and the now. Regarding GCC, well it's way up past the ice front.
Europe sits very high up compared to the US.

For example, if I take a sailboat straight out of Philadelphia PA and sail along the same longitidual line, I will end up in Lisbon Portugal.

I think if an ice sheet line came down it would
freeze all of europe but sicily & crete. As for the US it would most likely extend to Kansas City.

sounds a bit extreme. here is a map of the earth during the last ice age at about the last glacial maximum. i don't know if you've been to the south coast of spain, but you can see across to africa on a clear day, and most of the days are clear:

xertism...

That's a cool picture I guess they got there infromation from geological records. In the last little ice age during Dickins time it was brutally cold in London, so much that the Thames froze every year...extapolate from that and if it got really cold, I still believe most of europe and teh eastern US & Canada would be frosty. The food supply scaricity would be scary.
I suppose no one can say for sure where the ice sheet will extend. Our web host Whitley, proposed in his journal a "zone" that would be not to hot & not to cold. I do not know if this is based on the last ice age. If anyone knows I am curious to know...(not that I'd move in a panic) he said:

Below the 49th 0r 48th Latitude to above the 35th latitude. For the US that's Winnipeg Canada to Memphis Tennessee US.

Where is that in Europe?

In the past Whitley had said that the climate would shift south about a few hundred miles. So N. Dakota weather, for instance, would move down to about Nebraska, Nebraska weather would move down to about N. Texas, etc. Colder farther south...
