Paleontology say that adaptation has always been Humans’ key to Climate Change Survival

Professor Uno, a paleontologist at Columbia University’s Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory makes a compelling case as to how homosapiens have survived previous climate change episodes through adaptation.  The ability to be flexible and adjust to evolving circumstances, whether it be through technology or migration has been critical in human evolution, as humans can not control some natural forces. Likewise with climate change, humans will have to adapt to our energy diet, our food diet, and our thinking toward a more collaborative, rather than a competitive model.  Strategies that have been used by our ancestors.  Enjoy this short 10-minute video by Dr. Uno, for an evolutionary view of climate adaptation.
