,Lhere is enough evidence to prove that great climatic changes have I
occurred during tne pre-histonc and historic periods, which havei
had a profound influence in the development of humanity. ' j
For some centuries before the opening of the Christian era,
the climate of Europe was much colder and moister than it is!
today, and the climate of Asia and Africa also moister and more!
temperate. Caesar describes the climate of France as cold and:
swampy and Gibbon points out that the climate of Central Europe
has greatly changed, winters the most severe, whilo reindeer.
;whi'ch cannot live now south of the Baltic inhabited the forests of
Germany and Poland. v
In the time of the Ptolomies, inhabitable and cultivatahle
Egypt extended far into what is now desert and Alexandria enjoy
ed a temperate ciime.Aiexander in his march to India crossed a well
watered and populated region, where there is now only desert
waste. Josephus, A. D. 75, describes Palestine as "moist enough'
for agriculture, with abundance of trees, not watered by many
rivers, but by ample rainfall and very full of people." Its popula
tion was 2,000,000. The arid wastes of central Asia are covered
with ruins of forgotten cities lack of water has transformed oi.ee'
fertile fields to deserts. j
The change of climate and drying up of Asia during the early !
centuries of the Christian era forced the people to seek other1
nomes, where lite could be sustained. At the same time the
moderation of the climate of Europe made it inhabitable and the
great waves of migration from- the east, that deluded Eurone.
began, forcing the native populations to move on in turn to the
west, submerging the Koman world with barbaric hordes and de
During the middle ages, there was another shift of climate
and Asia grew moister and offered more chance for a livelihood
and the migrations ceased and the people of Europe, invaders and
natives, settled down to form the nations of today. During the past
few centuries the climate is gradually changing back to aridity.
The climate is not only a cause of famine, migration, war and
destruction, but the source of progress and civilization as well as
retrogression and decay. All civilizations originated in what, at
the time, was a temperate climate, and when the climate became
tropical, the pivihzations deteriorated. Even the temDerament
and character of the people are the results of climate and racial
distinctions are largely the product of environment which is
modified by climate. ; . -
A prolonged era of drouth, producing famine, creates unrest
Jand dissatisfaction, culminating in political revolutions, financial
panics, migration and war so that perhaps there has been no
single element more important in the history of the world and
the development of mankind than the climate. It is at once the
source of prosperity and plenty or of hardships, and penury, of the
birth and destruction of nations and the rise and fall of peoples.,
