ANCIENT CLIMATE CHANGE

Posted on: December 1, 2021

THIS POST IS A REVIEW OF A PUBLICATION THAT USES ANCIENT CLIMATE CHANGE AS FEAR APPEAL ACTIVISM FOR CLIMATE ACTION.

THE ARTICLE SAYS THAT THERE WAS GLOBAL WARMING AND CLIMATE CHANGE 4,300 YEARS AGO THAT HAD CAUSED THE COLLAPSE OF THE LIANGAHU CIVILIZATION IN CHINA AND THAT THIS SHOULD SERVE AS EVIDENCE OF THE HORROR OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND THE URGENT NEED FOR CLIMATE ACTION.

4,300 YEARS AGO PUTS US INTO THE LATE BRONZE AGE COLLAPSE WHEN AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF GLOBAL WARMING AND CLIMATE CHANGE HAD DEVASTATED AGRICULTURE ACROSS A LARGE SECTION OF THE GLOBE THAT INCLUDED EGYPT, THE MIDDLE EAST AND PARTS OF INDIA, AS WELL AS CHINA. THE DEVASTATION OF THE LATE BRONZE AGE COLLAPSE AND ITS GLOBAL IMPACTS SERVE AS A CAUTIONARY TALE AGAINST THE THE CLIMATE DENIAL POSITION THAT GLOBAL WARMING CAN’T BE ALL THAT BAD. DETAILS OF THE LATE BRONZE AGE COLLAPSE AND A BIBLIOGRAPHY ARE PROVIDED IN A RELATED POST. https://tambonthongchai.com/2018/08/16/collapse/

What Caused The Bronze Age Collapse Of Civilization? (5 Theories)

THERE ARE OTHER EXAMPLES OF EXTENSIVE IMPACTS OF GLOBAL WARMING THROUGHOUT THE HOLOCENE BOTH POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE. FOR EXAMPLE, IN THE FIRST WARMING CYCLE OF THE HOLOCENE, KNOWN AS THE HOLOCENE CLIMATE OPTIMUM, A SUSTAINED PERIOD OF GLOBAL WARMING HAD LED TO THE INVENTION OF AGRICULTURE AND THAT IN TURN LED TO THE CREATION OF HUMAN CIVILIZATION IN WHAT IS CALLED THE NEOLITHIC REVOLUTION: LINK: https://tambonthongchai.com/2021/06/27/modern-humans-climate-change/ . HOWEVER, MANY OF THE GLOBAL WARMING CYCLES OF THE HOLOCENE, INCLUDING THE LATE BRONZE AGE WARMING, HAVE HAD DIRE CONSEQUENCES AND THE COLLAPSE OF CIVILIZATION AS DESCRIBED IN ANOTHER RELATED LOST: LINK: https://tambonthongchai.com/2021/10/05/a-quora-question-3/

THE RELEVANT ISSUE RAISED BY THE “ANCIENT CLIMATE CHANGE” ARTICLE CITED ABOVE IS THAT GLOBAL WARMING CYCLES OF THE HOLOCENE ARE NORMAL AND NATURAL AND THAT THEREFORE, IN THIS CONTEXT, THE OCCURRENCE OF GLOBAL WARMING IN AN INTERGLACIAL DOES NOT REQUIRE HUMAN CAUSE TO EXPLAIN. THIS ISSUE IS DISCUSSED IN A RELATED POST LINKED BELOW.

HOWEVER, THE WHAT IS BEING IMPLIED IN THE REFERENCE ARTICLE IS THAT THE IMPACT OF THE GLOBAL WARMING OF THE LATE BRONZE AGE ON CHINA PROVIDES US WITH EVIDENCE OF THE HORRORS OF GLOBAL WARMING AND THE NEED FOR CLIMATE ACTION.

HERE WE PROPOSE, THAT WHAT THE ANCIENT CLIMATE CHANGE TELLS US IS THAT THERE ARE NATURAL GLOBAL WARMING CYCLES IN THE HOLOCENE AND THAT SOME OF THEM HAD SIGNIFICANT HARMFUL IMPACTS DOES NOT SERVE AS A CAUTIONARY TALE FOR CLIMATE ACTION. THAT DEMAND CAN BE MADE ONLY AFTER EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE OF HUMAN CAUSE HAS BEEN PRESENTED.

THE ANCIENT CLIMATE CHANGE EXAMPLE IMPLIES THAT THE CURRENT WARMING CAN’T BE ASSUMED TO BE HUMAN CAUSED AND THAT SIGNIFICANT EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE FOR SUCH CAUSATION IS REQUIRED IN THE CONTEXT OF THE NATURAL ANCIENT CLIMATE CHANGE EXAMPLE.
