Fall of Roman Empire and Climate Change

Salient article at Daily Kos (with lovely graphs and stats) looking at the extreme and shifting climate patterns over the past year. “FishOutofWater” warns:

We are doing little to cut emissions and avert more intense warming and greater climate change because politicians and economists don’t see the urgency for action. They might think about reconsidering.

Indeed. Centuries of unpredictable climate may have contributed to the decline and fall of the western Roman Empire, says the NewScientist. Discovery News also has the story.
