Fascinating; 6000 years ago was about the time that God was created by men!

If climate change keeps melting the glaciers, maybe one day they'll find the spaceship that brought our ancestors.

A big catch for historians & scientists in the wake of global warming, bad news for every one else, glaciers are melting.

Who could have thought that climate change would have positive consequences, albeit for a very small group of people.
