Climate Change And Human Society

There is a growing body of evidence that climate factors played a major impact in human social evolution. The book, SAHARASIA
shows how authoritarianism and class society developed from destertification.
The latest findings in Africa show how drought drove humans out of that continent to populate the rest of the world. See the following

Interesting stuff.

Although the particular drought mentioned in the article occured about 70,000 years ago, as opposed to the much more recent climate change that DeMeo's research focuses on, it does provide evidence that climate change has indeed affected the social evolution of humans.

I still haven't finished reading Saharasia yet, but it's definitely a fascinating read.
