Excellent and a Remarkable Book
This is my fourth Fagan book. In each book, he writes well, gathers massive amounts of information for many disciplines in support of his reasearch, and puts the pieces together in a coherent form. I have only begun to explore this book, but am enchanted with the findings.
In the midst of the alarms over first global cooling, now global warming, of late the climate change madness, he offers the discerning reader the opportunity explore the past history of the earth and its weather systems via records from archaeology, geology, enviorment. He documents and demonstrates how centuries of changes in heat and cold plus the influence of El Nino and its influencial twin shape and undermine civilizations in what is now South America and Latin America and the American North. In the sliver of time we occupy the earth, we need perspective to understand where we are. Fagan enables up to take a quantum leap forward in that understanding, because he tells us the past history of the earth and civilizations in the past.
I heartily recommend this book. Wish I could get every member of Congress and the Senate and the Presidential staff of 2500 and the EPA and the enviormental movement acolyes to read and discuss this major work in light of their own agendas.
This book is an exciting tour of history and its records.
I highly recommend Fagan's book.
