We humans have adapted to many different climates thanks to technology. Because of technology, we currently inhabit every continent on Earth. But without technology, we would not be able to survive outside our natural habitat. Tropical shorelines are the only places we could survive strictly relying on our own biology. In the desert, we’d die without a bottle to store water. In a tundra, we’d die without cloths or fire to keep us warm. In the savanna, we’d die without a spear to hunt with and defend ourselves. The only habitat where we could get food, water, and warmth without technology is on a tropical shoreline. Tropical shorelines are usually covered in mangrove forests. These flooded forests are full of tropical fruits and seafood. We can only survive in this habitat biologically because we evolved in the tropical shores of East Africa.
