A new study suggests that the earliest civilizations may have been affected by abrupt climate change. Do you think these civilizations caused the abrupt climate changes or were they natural?

The Mayans probably killed themselves with the SUV's they drove.

This is not a good way to advance your idea. Clearly climate change is a natural process. So are earthquakes. We can trigger earthquakes.

If there were people around it had to be their fault. I'm so evil, beat me, beat me! No, no it's those other people, beat them, beat them!

They clearly upset the climate gods. They should have sacrificed more virgins.

Natural, because they weren't industrialized back then.

They pooped on the ground causing the perfect storm for climate change!

Obviously man made, natural climate change is a myth created by republicans. Haven't you learned anything from Al Gore?

Natural, of course. Like the other four billion years.

Are we currently in the half billion years you didn't account for?

Natural. However, that doesn't mean that climate change in the modern era is the same.

It does, however, prove that just because people claim that the current changes are happening faster than usual doesn't mean that natural climate change is out of the question as many like to believe.

Climate change in the modern era has been really stable compared to the history of the earth. The earth use to swing wildly from global droughts to global ice ages to global droughts, etc.

I agree with both of you.

'Swinging wildly' in the historically geological sense is still over the course of a Thousands of years, not hundreds.

Not true Face. 11,600 years ago when Earth emerged from the final phase of the most recent ice age, the Greenland ice core data showed that a 15°F (8°C) warming occurred in less than a decade, accompanied by a doubling of snow accumulation in 3 years

Technically our climate is still considered to be in the "warming period" from coming out of that ice age. Temperatures are still returning to what is 'normal' or pre ice age

Side note - while the Earth may not be 200° in 100 years, we still should always try to keep clean air and reduce our environmental impact for our own health benefit
