|Cold Weather, Not Humans, Killed Neanderthals|
04 May 07 - Neanderthals disappeared from Earth more than 20,000
years ago. One team of scientists now says they have evidence to back
climate change as the main culprit. The study, by Francisco
Jiménez-Espejo, a paleoclimatologist at the University of Granada in
Spain, is detailed in a recent issue of Quaternary Science Reviews.
The scientists also focused on barite, a compound gathered by marine
animals. The more barite in sediment, the more lively the oceans were at
the time. "When we found big drops in marine productivity, we knew
there were big changes in climatic condition in Iberia,"
As you know if you’ve read Not by Fire but by Ice, I fear that we’re headed into another deadly period of cold.
