Good news again for those concerned about climate change from Australian Geographic Guide to the Weather.
On page 110: “About 6000 years ago the average temperature was some 4 degrees F (2 degrees C) higher than today and there was greater rainfall. These conditions fostered the birth of agriculture in Egypt and Mesopotamia which led to surplus food stocks being kept for the first time.”
I am no expert, but if these experts are correct, and if we are having higher temperatures and higher temperatures do lead to more rainfall via the precipitation cycle, there’s no need to alarm ourselves or our children.
