This was a long article, but the last line about seeing how past cultures reacted to major climate changes and learnig from them was a good lesson. I have said before that it would not take much to destroy the North Americans way of life as it is now. Rising sea levels, volcanic action, and earth quacks could wipe us out in a generation or less. They say there are some Government built sanctuarys built in the mountains some where, but that is for the upper level government people. The rest of us are on our own.

The first 18 years of my life I lived and worked a farm. I have had many jobs over the years since then, but one truth still holds true, no mater what social environment you live in. Or what your job is. Some One Still Has To Shovel The Manure! The Rich and Powerful still need a few Sheep, Slaves, Manual laborers or what ever you call us. If you keep your expectations LOW, you will always have a Job.
