EurekAlert - Core samples reveal evidence for a wet Ice-Age South America: "Using all this evidence, the researchers found that Titicaca's environs were wet not only during the last glacial age, which began 25,000 years ago and lasted until 15,000 years ago, but also during later cold periods in the North Atlantic Ocean region. Conversely, warm spells in the North Atlantic were marked by drought on the Altiplano." This is highly significant research about climate in the Andes. Weather has so much impact on living standards there because it leads to cycles of impoverishment for the campesinos.
