What Really Kills Civilizations

Can you say famine followed by collapse? This is what happened to Iraq millenia ago, though it was overirrigation that did them in..


I remember in the Grapes of Wrath the 1929 stock market crash was followed by topsoil blowing away in the Midwest and maybe Southwest. And then a desperate migration.

Maybe history repeats - Calif-forn-I-A anyone?
