    time period.

    Across the last 30,000 years, "normal" appears to me to have been the extremely broad suite of behaviors that keeps several million H sap sap alive long enough to "well enough" raise the next generation; successfully transfer stories, wealth, and technology to it; and have it care for us in our old age.

    If I'm right, our current "normal" will keep H sap sap alive through the environmental and social cataclysms of global warming "well enough," although our standard of living might be far more modest than today's.

    YES WE DID -- AGAIN. FOUR MORE YEARS.
