    Now back to your regularly scheduled program, what are the ramifications for this discovery on climate change?

    ...The Maya, who originated around 2600 B.C. in current day Southeastern Mexico, grew to prominence and size during the next three millennia, building temple step-pyramids and developing highly accurate astronomical and calendar systems. Why some of their larger cities were abandoned a thousand years ago is largely a mystery. Though weather shifts have been proposed previously, the stalagmite findings may offer the data that was lacking, said Douglas Kennett, the lead study author.

    “We lucked into very good material to work with, to develop a very detailed climate record that is anchored chronologically in a way that other records haven’t been able to,” Kennett, a professor of anthropology at Penn State in State College, Pennsylvania, said in a phone interview....

    ...The scientists found that a wetter period corresponded with an increase in food production, and population growth, from 450 to 660 AD. During this time, cities such as Tikal, Copan and Caracol expanded, and the ancient civilization reached the pinnacle of its power, covering all of Guatemala, Belize, parts of Honduras, El Salvador and Mexico.

    A drying period occurred during the next four centuries, punctuated by droughts. Mayan records show an increasing number of wars being fought in this period, and eventually larger cities gave way to smaller settlements, Kennett said....

    “You have a loss of a large number of these polities,” he said. “You get this major reduction in the production of these stone monuments -- that’s a reflection of kings losing control and losing power at these primary centers.”

    Another report on that @ What destroyed the Maya? We have a new clue, in the form of an ancient stalagmite, with graphs!



    Kennett says if there's anything for people today to take away from his team's research, it's the relevancy it holds to contemporary issues. Obviously people are worried about global climate change, he explains, but often there's undue emphasis placed on abrupt changes — a sudden drought, perhaps, or a record-setting hurricane. "What we try to highlight in our paper," he explains, "is how climatic events can unfold on very long time scales," and that the way society responds to those changes can be crucial.
    The full report can be found at Development and Disintegration of Maya Political Systems in Response to Climate Change.

    I've given up trying to argue Science with Republicans ...

    I mean look at it this way ... Todd Akin is one of the members who represents the Republican Party on the Committee On Science, Space and Technology. enough said.
