Natural Disasters Doomed Early Supe Valley Civilization
A civilization that existed 3,600 years ago in Supe Valley, in what is now Peru, was doomed by natural disasters. A massive earthquake, or series of earthquakes, collapsed buildings and launched mudslides from the surrounding mountain walls. An El Nino event then brought heavy rains, which damaged irrigation systems and made the area uninhabitable. All this without anthropogenic sources of carbon dioxide. If this were to happen today, it would surely be blamed on global warming.
