It is widely known that climate deeply affects living beings as well as the natural environment forcing them to adapt over and over again. Since ever cold and very cold periods have alternated with temperate or hot ones.
Temperature rising has always been associated with the melting of the polar glaciers, resulting in the sea level rise. About 100.000 years ago, the Peninsula Sorrentina-Amalfitana was linked with Capri since the sea level was lower than it is nowadays.
By now we know very well the causes of climate change: variations in earth’s orbit and in the solar activity, impact of meteorite and, last but not least, Man, responsible for the increasing industrial activity and the greenhouse gas emissions.
