Soccer Moms Driving MUVs (Mammoth Utility Vehicles) Caused Mega-Drought 16,000 Years Ago

An expansive megadrought that parched ancient Africa and southern Asia about 16,000 years ago was one of the most intense and far-reaching dry periods in the history of modern humans, new climate research indicates.

The drought hit almost all of southern Asia and most of the African continent. During the drought, Africa’s Lake Victoria — the world’s largest tropical lake and the source of the Nile — dried out, as did Lake Tana in Ethiopia and Lake Van in Turkey. And monsoons from China to the Mediterranean brought little or no rain.

Mandatory incoherent global warming drivel tacked on at the end :

They suggest, that in addition to the convergence-zone move, the tropical rainfall systems over Africa and Asia must have weakened dramatically, perhaps in response to cooling sea surface and less water evaporating off it.

The next question, of course, is whether an extreme megadrought could strike again in our warming world.

“There’s much less ice left to collapse into the North Atlantic now, so I’d be surprised if it could all happen again – at least on such a huge scale,” Stager said in a statement.

    These idiots would do their agenda a big favor by STFU! It seems every thing they say is in support of the position taken by Realists! Claims such as these show that natural climate is more variable than what we have experienced and Human released GHGs are not needed to produce the “Minor” changes we experienced and can expect in the future!
    The more they claim the “Sky Is Falling” the fewer people believe their fantasy!

    Mammoth methane emissions were obviously of…mammoth proportions!

    At least 16000 years ago spares us yet another news clipping!
