Study: Climate Change Killed Roman Empire

As AJ says, you can't make this stuff up.  BUT THE SCIENTISTS DO!!!

“Climate change seems a factor in the rise and fall of the Roman empire, according to a study of ancient tree growth that urges greater awareness of the risks of global warming in the 21st century,” Reuters reports.

The study's lead author said climate shifts affected farming and amplified other political, social and economic crises.

The study notes that periods of good oak and pine growth in central Europe over the last 2,500 years signaled warm, wet summers that overlapped with wealthy periods among farming societies — including the height of the Roman empire.

But the story notes that the good times didn’t last: “Periods of climate instability overlapped with political turmoil, such as during the decline of the Roman empire, and might even have made Europeans vulnerable to the Black Death or help explain migration to America during the chill 17th century.”
I'M A DEPLORABLE KNUCKLEHEAD THAT SUPPORTS PRESIDENT TRUMP.  MAY GOD BLESS HIM AND KEEP HIM SAFE.

And all this time the extremist historians have taught that it was an over extended military, debased currency, and corrupt, effete politicians.

hahaha, but we are again at a point of corrupt politics. Corruption with no bounds. Therefore; history must be revised.

So when the Western World implodes, they'll just blame it on climate change -- not our fault. Nice out!

actually a claim for climate change did bring about the fall of Rome. But they know just what the culprit was in this case. The Krakatoa eruption in 535 ad.

It was falling long before then; however.

Byzantine surfaced around 395 AD or so... the Western Empire more or less collapsed in 476 AD. According to what I could find. Byzantine lasted a whole lot longer, maybe another thousand years past that.

The 'climate change' that killed Rome is however; the same 'climate change' that's killing us - but that's a political climate, and has nothing to do with the environment.. :)
