BLUFA new study shows a link between climate change and human evolution and is based on a six-month study using the Aleph supercomputer in South Korea.
This article from Nature notes the following:
- The study used the Aleph supercomputer in South Korea to examine the last two million years.
- Early human species, were able to spread across the world because weather conditions became more human friendly.
- That climate affected human evolution is not a new idea.
- The simulation was able to recreate a climate model based on the Earth’s astronomical movements.
- Axel Timmermann says the study supports the hypothesis that H sapiens evolved from a single evolutionary event in southern Africa.
- Homo sapiens evolved because of a need to adapt to hotter, drier conditions.
