In the evolutionary history of the Earth, Quaternary is the times of human birth, development and expansion and its formation geological products has recorded the rich   environment information. Weathering index CIA, Fe2O3/FeO, Fe/Mn, etc., chemical parameters of Hebei Province Quaternary lithostratigraphics (Nihewan group, Chicheng group, Malan group, Qian’an group), may serve as the average annual temperature, annual rainfall and other climatic factors similar proxy. In the stream sediments of the location of the human cultural heritage sites in North China, mercury, tin, gold and other metal concentrations reach the higher stage with the evolution of human civilization. The results show that in order to adapt to changing natural geography environment (cold, drought) human being have to make technological innovation, resulting in the advances in the civilization as farming, industrial revolution and modern information industry. But at the same time, geological environment has also led to manmade pollution, maybe even to global warming.
