Shifting the pattern of rainfall that people have spent tens or hundreds of years living with and adapting to can cause real harm, whether you’re in Bangladesh or Houston. Climate change is altering weather conditions all across the globe at a rate much quicker than many can adapt to.When we assess how a changing planet could affect us, let’s take a lesson from the Egyptians.The Egyptians relied on an elaborate system of dams and canals to inundate their fields, bringing in silt to serve as fertilizer and water to keep crops alive.If the waters failed to crest high enough, the fields remained dry and food production dwindled.

An ill-timed eruption could conceivably tip the scales. Some 70 percent of the world’s population today depends in some way on monsoons.

Most of the hieroglyphic inscription celebrates Merneptah's triumph over Libya, his enemy to the West, but almost as an afterthought, he mentions his conquest of people to the East, in just two lines.
