Apparently, Ancient Britons Were A Lot More Relaxed About Changing Climates

Confronted With Severe Climate Change, Ancient Britons Kept Calm and Carried On

Soon after the glaciers melted at the end of the last Ice Age, our planet was vulnerable to abrupt and dramatic shifts in climate, including prolonged cold snaps that lasted for decades. New research suggests early hunter-gatherers living in the British Isles didn’t just manage to survive these harsh conditions—they actually thrived.

Ancient hunter-gatherers living at the Star Carr site some 11,000 years ago in what is now North Yorkshire didn’t skip a beat as temperatures plunged around the globe in the immediate post-glacial era, according to new research published in Nature Ecology & Evolution. This latest research suggests abrupt climate change wasn’t catastrophically or culturally disruptive to this long-standing community, and that early humans were remarkably resilient and adaptable in the face of dramatic climate shifts.

“It has been argued that abrupt climatic events may have caused a crash in Mesolithic populations in Northern Britain, but our study reveals that at least in the case of the pioneering colonizers at Star Carr, early communities were able to cope with extreme and persistent climate events,” lead author Simon Blockley, a researcher at Royal Holloway, University of London, said in a statement.

Nowadays, if it’s a tad bit warm, a tad bit cold, it rains, it doesn’t rain, heck, a nice seasonal day which is good for taking a loved one out for a nice lunch and a walk in a park, members of the Cult of Climastrology have meltdowns and yammer on about Doom. My farm raised Blue Gourami may not be a happy camper with the water temperature at 72 (need a new heater, they do better around 75-82), but, it’s a fish. Humans can, and have, done just fine in all sorts of different climates. One might get the impression that Warmists have ulterior motives in pushing Future Doom.
