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.
