Climate change helped to topple the Egyptian Old Kingdom

OK, who had the coal burning power plants or gas guzzling SUV's that caused this event?

(Anyway that is what we are told as the root cause of climate change.  Heck Leonardo Di Caprio declared climate change as the greatest danger facing the world after accepting his Oscar last night.)

The 4.2 kiloyear BP aridification event was one of the most severe climatic events of the Holocene period in terms of impact on cultural upheaval.[1] Starting in about 2200 BC, it probably lasted the entire 22nd century BC. It is very likely to have caused the collapse of the Old Kingdom in Egypt as well as the Akkadian Empire in Mesopotamia.[2] The drought may have also initiated southeastward habitat tracking within the Indus Valley Civilization.[3]

A phase of intense aridity about 4.2 ka BP is recorded across North Africa,[4] the Middle East,[5] the Red Sea,[6] the Arabian peninsula,[7] the Indian subcontinent,[3] and midcontinental North America.[8] Glaciers throughout the mountain ranges of western Canada advanced at about this time.[9] Evidence has also been found in an Italian cave flowstone,[10] the Kilimanjaro Ice sheet,[11] and in Andean glacier ice.[12] The onset of the aridification in Mesopotamia about 4100 BP also coincided with a cooling event in the North Atlantic, known as Bond event 3.[1][13][14] Despite this, evidence for the 4.2 kyr event in northern Europe is ambiguous, suggesting the origin and impact of this event is spatially complex.[15]

It's too late...Al the Goracle stated 10 years ago we only had 10 years left and the earth would be destroyed. That 10 years have past and considering what Obama has accomplished, he may be correct.
