Harvey Weiss at Yale realizes that the bronze age ended by a catastrophic climate change, evidenced at Tell Leilan in eastern Syria where he’s excavated for many years, that city of 20,000 in its heyday now stranded in arid and desolate land, much different there during the bronze age ‘though when mostly naturally occuring fruits and grains were gathered without irrigation and game abounded, when the wadis were perennial streams fed by rainfall four times what falls there today.  That’s some serious climate change, wouldn’t you say?

Weiss says it dried up circa 2200 b.c., but when it’s considered that the more ancient carbon 14 dates tend certainly to exaggeration, due to significantly greater but unfactored volcanism when the earliest civilizations (post Deluge) were flourishing during the Ice Age, the real time of that climate change becomes clear, having begun circa 1500 b.c., when the canaanite cities of the plains of the Holy Land also succumbed to terminal drought, as the newly arrived Jews in the highlands of Judea prospered with terrace/drip farming.
