In a fascinating video about the collapse of the great Bronze Age Civilizations, it is revealed that the most likely cause was climate change. What should we call that? Catastrophic Non-Anthropogenic Climate Change? I also find it interesting how all the events being caused by CO2 today, including the fracking caused earthquakes, also happened back in 1177 BC without coal burning power plants, SUVs and fracking. Funny how the exact same observation can get totally different explanations, but then again, if you aren’t looking for the real answers, it is unlikely you will find them. Also, how do we know that CO2 hasn’t prevented a reoccurrence of the climate change of 1177 BC?

The Collapse of Civilizations: It’s Complicated
A similar event occurred later in the Bronze Age in Europe around 800 BC. While scholars debate if the climate change caused the population decline, they all agree on the fact that the climate dramatically changed in a relatively short period of time without the influence of anthropogenic CO2. Also, cooling, not warming has historically lead to downfalls of society. There were no great civilizations during the ice age, great civilizations emerged as temperatures increased and crop yields reached the levels needed to sustain the great ancient civilizations.
Historians, archaeologists, anthropologists, and scientists often find that connections between climate and human activity are particularly clear, and especially well-documented, in times of crisis. It is no surprise, then, that scholars have sought to link the Bronze Age collapse to climate change…They found that, in Northwestern Europe, populations began to decline more than a century before the late Bronze Age climate started to cool. Collapse in this part of Europe therefore cannot be tied to climate change.
BTW, the MO of the Climate Alarmists is to deny, deflect, deceive, distort, and attack. One favorite tactic is to “appeal to authority,” who are often the “Fact Checkers.” These favorite attack dogs are a tainted jury at best.
