The Mayans were banished from Central America to Cambodia by the Olmecs! That's what happened to them and how they disappeared. The Mayans were evil and had to go.

In the Yucatan Pennisula there is a rainy season and a dry season. I read somewhere (not on the internet) that scientist have drilled into a lakebed in the Yucatan and dicovered that from about 700AD-900AD the summer rains failed to happen. As for their dissapearance, a 200 year long drought would be more than enough to make anyone move.

Did environment play role in Mayan decline? Well if Spanish Conquistadors are now being called an "environment" then yes!
