By counting the pollen deposited in ~,':lakes that have gone dry and by studying the ice in glaciers and fossil forest soils, it is possible to determine ,'~the climate of the past. Brvson's data show that from about 1600 to 19OO the world was much colder than between ,-,1900 and about 1945. Since 1945, it is becoming colder again. "Climate is a world-wide, integrat- ,:ed system," Bryson said. "Significant . changes cannot take place in one part "of the system without other changes Scientist predicts colder climate t:oolcr -- the ~rowing season in England has diminished by two weeks. Au(l. more import~nttv, a cool Artic has a devastating climatic effect on the tropics and subtropics where most of the world's people live. As you move south from the North Pole. the temperature changes cause westerly winds in the upper air that flow around the pole in a circumpolar vortex. The winds around the outer edge of the vortex are known as the westerlies and move as far south as Southern Europe. To the south of the westerlies there are clockwise eddies of wind known as the subtropical anticyclones. These anticyclones are critical to world topoi procluchon because the sinking air in them produce the subtropical deserts, such as the Sahara, and their position and movement strongly influence the rains It) penetrate farther north. Thus if the Arctic. cools over the years, the vortex becomes larger and the subtropical deserts move closer to the equator. Such actions can and did in the past destroy whole civilizations. Bryson used the great Indus Empire. which was in what is now northwest India and Pakistan, as an example. Before about 1900 B.C. the Indus had developed into a great agricultural empire with huge granaries and large cities such as Harappa and Mohenio-Daro. Soon afterwards the cities were abandoned and the land unoccupied. Some of the towns were buried under the sand dunes that drifted across the sea. Through an analysis of the fossil pollen accumulated in a lake in the area. Bryson was able to determine the summer monsoon rainfall. When the monsoons stopped, the pollen stopped. and Indus stopped. "'A seven-century long failure of the monsoons, not only in India but the Sahel savanna region of North Africa Everett Drermen occuring in other places." location and duration of the monsoons, as well. is clearly possible."
