Climate change = civilization

A couple of wonderful reads on an important question. First, the question: What will climate change mean for all of us?

Now, the reading:

1) Michael Specter, "The Last Drop," The New Yorker, October 23, 2006
2) Steven Johnson, The Ghost Map
3) Andrew Leonard, How the World Works, reviewing Nick Brooks paper, "Cultural Responses to Aridity in the Middle Holocene and Increased Social Complexity."
