Tang Dynasty Crippled by Weather Shift

"Jan. 4, 2007 — The Tang dynasty, seen by many historians as a glittering peak in China's history, was brought to its knees by shifts in the monsoon cycle, according to a study."

This stuff is fascinating. My son and I have been watching Naked Science and Nova lately and they've been discussing the evolution of the planet and solar system. Seeing how the weather patterns affected the past can be an interesting indicator to what might be coming. And what might be coming could be some not-so-fun times.
