Climate Adaptation in the Past: The Case of the Mayans


 

Collapse?!   Academic researchers continue to debate these issues.  "We want to see how people were affected by climate changes and how they coped with them. Through many changes and crises, including the most severe effects of contact with the Spanish, Maya society and culture have persisted."   This sounds reasonable to me.  Perhaps I should talk to more Anthropologists.  I know one superstar in the field but I know that it is a diverse field.  This example of anthropology looks interesting but I wonder how one establishes cause and effect?
