Summary What do the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, the Thirty Years' War and the Renaissance have in common? For one, they were all starkly affected by extreme weather conditions. This feature-length documentary combines natural sciences and history, including a journey from the Big Bang to Iceland's volcanoes - to provide a gripping narrative that explores little-known connections between the Earth's climate and major historical events. Are these extremes of weather really a 21st-century phenomenon? Or has climate determined the fate of humanity ever since amphibians took their first steps on terra firma?
