Nick, if that sort of environmental determinism is widely out of favour,
then it still appears in a vast array of different articles on the subject.

If your position is that climate does not affect human population, then
I'll accept that because that would resolve the problem of why the
present "unprecedented climate change" has had so little affect - it is
because normal variations in climate don't affect humans
.... although I'm still a little concerned by that small popular myth
called the ice age!
