Climate change ‘wiped out ancient Indus civilization’

Climate change `wiped out ancient Indus civilization`  Washington: The mysterious fall of one of the world’s first, great urban civilizations almost 4,000 years ago in what is now India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh now seems to have a key culprit — ancient climate change, researchers say. Once extending more than 1 million square kilometers across the plains of the Indus River from the Arabian Sea to the Ganges, the Indus civilization was the largest—but least known—of the first great urban cultures that also included Egypt and Mesopotamiahttp://zeenews.india.com/news/eco-news/climate-change-wiped-out-ancient-indus-civilization_778536.html

About Intercultural Resources

Intercultural Resources is a forum for research and political intervention on issues related to the impacts and alternatives to destructive development. Our effort draws upon the social, cultural, material and intellectual resources that have been generated in the course of dialogues between people of different cultures on questions of social justice, development and self-rule. We are of the view that dialogue can sustain plurality and open possibilities for recovery of the ground lost on account of inter-cultural alienation, which is manifest in a variety of forms of violence that we encounter everyday at different levels of social life. Intercultural Resources is based in Delhi, India. Email: ihpindia@gmail.com
