Humans Achieve a "Regime Change" -- For the Climate

Research on Arctic and North Atlantic ecosystems shows the recent warming trend counts as the most dramatic climate change since the onset of human civilization 5,000 years ago.

And during those 5000 years we have settled the most accessible and fertile areas, coasts, river valleys and flood plains.

Sea level rise and changing precipitation patterns are going to be a bitch.

Ross,

The onset of human civilisation is more than 10000 years ago. The site of Jericho alone is over 10000 years old.
