Many, many cultures have some sort of flood creation myth, some of which we can trace to known events, and some we cannot. The Chinese attribute the founding of the first dynasty, the Xia, to the aftermath of a flooding of the Yellow River. For millennia there has been nothing but a history written long after the face, with no real evidence. That seems to have changed. A Chinese geologist has discovered geological evidence in the form of sediment deposits that indicate the Yellow River probably did flood very close to how and when the stories told, making it one of the largest known floods of the past 10,000 years.

Maybe he can uncover some evidence to explain the global warming myth. Perhaps glaciers rapidly retreating, or a fertile Sahara.
