On East African climate variability and human evolution:

http://phys.org/news/2013-10-local-east-african-climate-variability.html

"Prior research has found that the Great Rift Valley has experienced great changes over the past couple of million years. Because of its unique geography, the area has been particularly sensitive to changes in temperature and rainfall amounts. During periods of abundant rainfall, huge lakes formed along with lush vegetation—times of less rain saw lakes dry up and deserts creep in making life difficult for those that lived in the area. Shultz and Maslin suggest it was the severe changes in the local environment that tested the brains of the creatures that would eventually evolve to become modern man, causing an increase in size and complexity.

But don't bother. The increase in size and complexity follows periods in human evolution of intense fossil fuel burning.
