Climate Change, Chaos, and The Little Ice Age - Crash Course World History 206

In which John Green teaches you about the Little Ice Age. The Little Ice Age was a period of global cooling that occurred from the 13th to the 19th centuries. This cooling was likely caused by a number of factors, including unusual solar activity and volcanic eruptions. The Little Ice Age greatly impacted human social orders, especially during the 17th century. When the climate changed, and weather became unpredictable, the world changed profoundly. Poor harvests led to hunger, which led to even less productivity, which even resulted in violent upheaval in a lot of places. All this from a little change in the temperature? Definitely.

Captain America with Crash Course

black-olive-tree:

You know how Capt in ‘the Winter Soldier’ is shown having a list of music recommend to him?

Right, okay.

I really want someone to recommend to him that he should watch Crash Course by John Green.  He would then be up-to-date about how things generally went down after the whole ice experience.  I REALLY want this to happen.

Am I the only one who has thought of this?
