Some of us view climate as something we influence (the anthropogenic global warming or AGW theory); others of us see climate change as a natural cycle. Although they are connected, climate and weather are very different, and have created ripe conditions for many battles, wars, and commercial inventions that otherwise might have never been realized – irrigation, clothing, and many facets of agriculture are just a few. Climate change has driven so many mass migrations in human history, but we rarely consider the implications of this in today’s fast-paced world. Our ability to prepare for and survive sudden environmental changes could never be more important than it is today. Dr. Tim Ball joins us to share about the role of climate and weather in shaping human history.
