Climates have changed, are changing, and will change in the future, but today humans are accelerating the pace of these changes. Washington University Anthropology Department Chair and Environmental Studies Professor, Dr. Tristam Kidder, uses archaeological and environmental information from ancient China to show how people in the past responded to climate changes and what these responses can tell us about the challenges we face with changing climates today.

What Can the Past Tell Us About the Future of Climate Change? is a Science in St. Louis Series partnership of the The Academy of Science – St. Louis and St. Louis County Library.
