PART-1: WHAT THE ARTICLE SAYS

Dec 14, 2021: Archaeology: How the study’s future involves helping to understand climate change. ARCHAEOLOGY may be recognised for helping to solve mysteries of the past – but did you know it’s now informing us about how humans could navigate the challenge of climate change? Britain’s Pompeii: Archaeologists excavate Bronze Age settlement. Tutankhamen’s tomb, Machu Picchu and China’s terracotta warriors are all examples of remnants from the past that archaeologists have helped to uncover. The study has existed for more than a century, and now looks poised to turn its attention from the past to the future, and help to contribute to discussions on climate change. For the first time, physical evidence of a Roman crucifixion in Britain was unearthed last week, by researchers who were investigating land due to be built on by a housing development. A ‘once in a lifetime’ discovery of a Bronze Age Axe was also made, in November. The study is evolving in more than one way. In fact, one of the key developments it’s making is in relation to climate change – but how is this possible? Here is how archaeology will help us to understand climate change. He explained how archaeology is capable of these changes because it’s a “contemporary subject”. Archaeologist Neil Redfern says “If you think about archaeology, we normally study stuff that’s been lost or deliberately thrown away or has suffered some catastrophe. We study the process of loss. Well actually that makes us understand why things fail. Today, archaeologists use a range of technology to assist ongoing excavations. So, it gives us a really good set of questions to start posing to society today about what the impact of climate change is going to be and what the impact of societal changes are going to be. What we do is we try to use evidence of the totality of human existence to understand how we’ve survived to this moment in time.”He explained that we can use evidence of how humans lived in the past – that was discovered by archaeologists – to understand how we could be impacted by climate change and potentially move through it. As technology continues to advance and assume a leading role in archaeology, Mr Redfern believes that humans will always be needed to provide real value to discoveries. He said: “Technology has had a profound impact on archaeological thoughts and processes. That is not slowing down but the beauty of it is you will always need a human to translate that. “It’s the human who scribes the value to objects. Whatever you do, it will always come back to what relevance that has to us as human beings.”

Some of the most significant archaeological finds to have ever been made have come from the British Isles. In 2009, 4,500 fragments of war gear and religious objects were discovered that were later found to date back to the seventh century.The haul was dubbed the Staffordshire Hoard and in total amounted to 4kg of gold and 1.5kg of silver. In 2001, a metal detectorist discovered what would become known as the Ringlemere Cup. At more than 3,500 years old the artefact helped to shed light on what it would have been like to live in that point of history and is now on show at the British Museum.

PART-2: CRITICAL COMMENTARY: ABSTRACT: THAT ARCHEOLOGISTS DISCOVERED ANCIENT CLIMATE CHANGE BEFORE HUMANS STARTED BURNING FOSSIL FUELS IS NOT MORE REASON TO TAKE CLIMATE ACTION; IT IS LESS REASON TO TAKE CLIMATE ACTION; BECAUSE NOW WE KNOW THAT THESE THINGS HAPPEN NATURALLY ANYWAY INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION OR NO INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION.

IN RELATED POSTS WE ARGUE THAT THE CLIMATE CHANGE ISSUE OF OUR TIME IS NOT THAT CLIMATE CHANGE CAN HAVE HARMFUL IMPACTS BUT THE USE OF THOSE IMPACTS TO PUSH AN ANTI FOSSIL FUEL AGENDA AT GREAT COST TO SOCIETY AND THAT THE WEAKER THE EVIDENCE OF HUMAN CAUSE THE GREATER THE FEAR APPEAL ACTIVISM NEEDS TO BE.

RELATED POST#2: THE CLIMATE CHANGE ISSUE OF OUR TIME IS NOT WHETHER CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACTS CAN BE HARMFUL. THE ESSENCE OF THE CLIMATE MOVEMENT IS NOT THAT IT IS WARMING NOR THAT THE WARMING CAN HAVE HARMFUL IMPACTS, THE ESSENCE OF THE MOVEMENT IS THE HUMAN CAUSE HYPOTHESIS THAT SERVES AS THE BASIS FOR THE DEMAND FOR THE COSTLY CLIMATE ACTION OF MOVING THE WORLD’S ENERGY INFRASTRUCURE FROM FOSSIL FUELS TO RENEWABLES.

THE ONLY ISSUE IS HUMAN CAUSE

BOTTOM LINE

THAT ARCHEOLOGISTS DISCOVERED ANCIENT CLIMATE THAT HAPPENED BEFORE HUMANS STARTED BURNING FOSSIL FUELS IS NOT MORE REASON TO TAKE CLIMATE ACTION; IT IS LESS REASON TO TAKE CLIMATE ACTION; BECAUSE NOW WE KNOW THAT THESE THINGS HAPPEN NATURALLY ANYWAY INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION OR NO INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION.

THE INTENT HERE IS OF COURSE, OH LOOK HOW HORRIFIC THE CLIMATE IMPACTS CAN BE AND SO YOU SHOULD HEED WHAT WE SAY AND TAKE CLIMATE ACTION.

EXCEPT THAT WITHOUT HUMAN CAUSE THERE IS NO RATIONALE FOR CLIMATE ACTION.
