When the Sahara Was Green

PBS Member Stations rely on viewers like you. To support your local station, go to http://to.pbs.org/DonateEons Check out Antarctic Extremes on PBS Terra: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvRAuy1ZmTc The climate of the Sahara was completely different thousands of years ago. And we’re not talking about just a few years of extra rain. We’re talking about a climate that was so wet for so long that animals and humans alike made themselves at home in the middle of the Sahara. Big thanks to Fabrizio De Rossi for the reconstructions of the Sahara past and present.
