Boiling Point

“The sudden warming of the planet that brought about the end of the last ice age, 11,000 years ago, allowed human beings to settle in permanent cities, raise crops and domesticate animals. It made civilization possible. But what the climate gives, the climate can take away. The magnitude of the changes coming at us now is at least equal to that of the warming that melted the glaciers at the end of the Pleistocene. Just ask someone from the east coast of Florida what weather can do to a city.”
