Toba, climate change and human resilience

Post by BevMyers » Wed Feb 26, 2020 12:40 pm

Physical evidence in India, proves at least some homosapiens survived and adapted after the Toba eruption. Amazing to me, that humans had that kind of capability 74,000 years ago. But the question remains, if there was to be another catastrophic climate event, could humans adapt again? Granted, the population is much greater now, than then...but still would cause many casualties for years afterwards. Scary concept.
