For years, scientists have been baffled by the sudden disappearance of one of the world’s most progressive cultures. The Mayans had a civilization that encompassed Central America and Southern Mexico for over three centuries.

Recent studies are showing that there may have been a combination of causes for the collapse of such an extensive society. Research is indicating that long term drought may have been the cause of the fall of the Mayan civilization, but also the fault may be with the Mayans themselves. To support their society, the Mayans continually removed the tropical forest canopies as well as extended their deforestation practices. It is known that massive deforestation in tropical and subtropical zones does have an effect on weather patterns, as the forests themselves are an integral part of the weather balance.
