Sure, the gold rush brought about a lot of things. It spawned the West and helped people migrate towards the west coast. Can’t imagine what would have happened if it didn’t happen! It might be anyone’s guess. According http://climatarians.org, it’s hard to imagine a world like that. Small events give rise to big changes. Life’s like that.

What a rush!
