    That's a difficult question to answer. The atmosphere would have breathable, although it would have been uncomfortably hot and humid. Food would be the greatest issue. It's anyone's guess which plants around would have been edible. Many might be outright poisonous. Animals would likely be safe to eat, but without plants that wouldn't be a balanced diet...

    So, yes for a short visit - longer if you bring your own supplies. I for one would not be interested in settling, though.
