Well, how about global climate change?  The evidence shows that, between about , and , years ago, glaciers expanded to cover much of the northern hemisphere, affecting climates around the world. For most of this period, the sea coasts expanded as ocean levels fell. Forests advanced to cover many coastal regions, while grasslands expanded across high inland areas. Then the climate entered a warm phase, and the glaciers began to retreat. As the glaciers melted, the oceans rose – by only about – millimetres a year, but slowly and inexorably inundating coastlines everywhere.

And for settled communities, with their extensive knowledge of the plant world and the tools already developed for its exploitation, it was a short step to the development of agricultural practices.  Potato But there are problems with the idea of climate change as the incentive for agriculture around , years ago. For one thing, the change did not happen overnight, or even over a decade. It was progressive, accumulating year by year, and people probably were already accustomed to a range of extremes that exceeded the annual change – in other words, they were unlikely to have noticed.
