Article Recommendation: Adapting to Climate Change

This article on Sifi News is interesting. A recent study suggests that human populations of the past, over a period of up to 13,500 years ago, were far more adaptable to the effects of climate change than present cultures (including modern-day indigenous tribes who seem to now be more permanently established and less itinerant). The study looked at several periods when there was significant climate change and focussed on how humans survived the aftermath. If the study is correct we may be in for a rough ride in modern times, compared to our ancient ancestors. Check the article out here (and feel free to leave a comment if you wish!):

Adapting to Climate Change may have been easier 13,500 years ago

About Owen Law

My pen-name is ‘Owen Law’ (real name: Nicholas Davies.) I’m a science fiction writer specialising in dystopian/apocalyptic visions of the future. I’m from Shropshire, England (on the borders with Wales) and I’m in my forties. I have a background in public services and training. I’ve been working on my first novel, Dragon Line, since 2008. I’ve also written several short stories, one of which you can find on this blog (‘Matilda Leviathan‘). I now reside on the border of Shropshire and Wales, and my interests include writing (of course!), current affairs and environmental issues.
