This is a rehash of much older evidence that I and many others have known about for a long time. The flip-flop of climate states is never anything short of apocalyptic. You can imagine what these kinds of climate changes do to societies that have based their whole existence on one kind of weather, only to wake up to discover everything has changed radically overnight. I would predict particularly severe population crashes for highly sophisticated zero-stock, on-demand, widely distributed societies like the one we live in. To expect more than 5% of the population would survive with the added factor of modern weapons is decidedly optimistic.
