Wow. No one line flippant handwaving dismissal?Is this TR?
You really must be bored.
the initial warmer temps and abundant rain are the reason the human race spread out of the ice age refugia and started eating grains. the abrupt and temporary refreeze provoked them to develop agriculture as a way to continue the grain-based diet under more difficult conditions.
oh it would be thousands of years before any written records. and oral history, while it does occasionally surprise us by preserving apparently real information in nonterrible form over a period of centuries, is still unreliable, certainly over that span of time.
Here are the ice core data in question.http://cdiac.esd.ornl.gov/ftp/trends/temp/vostok/vostok.1999.temp.datThe interested reader can see for him/herself that - surprise! - F_X is full of shit.
The specific claim you keep repeating, and have failed to defend is that the Global Sea Level was 3 meters higher than the current level.
Hans Tausen Iskappe (Greenland), situated at 82.5°N, 27.5°W, is world's northernmost ice cap. During several field campaigns in the 70s and 90s, its ice thickness was measured, mass balance and meteorological measurements occurred, and a 345 m deep ice core was drilled. From this ice core it is known that the ice cap (largely) disappeared during the Holocene Thermal Maximum.
Their age and elevation indicate, instead, a history of higher relative sea level (and subsequent fall) on windward Oahu during the middle to late Holocene. This history is consistent with geophysical models of postglacial geoid subsidence over the equatorial ocean first predicted by Walcott (1972) and later refined by Clark et al. (1978) and Mitrovica and Peltier (1991).
at some point our previously nomadic ancestors noticed that the same best grains were continually growing in the same spots, and came to visit and spend more and more time there. eventually, someone recognized the causal connection between seeds and plants and started deliberately planting them.

While researching the Neoglacial I discovered several things related to that, both surprising. Rice was being cultivated 10-14 thousand years ago, and pottery has been dated to 20,000 years ago, both in China.
