Hmm. I see that "Metal Pollution From Medieval Mining Persists
" (via Cronaca
), and that a "summer heat wave has unearthed a historic past
" (via Mirablilis
). Then I learned from Brian Ward-Perkins in his Fall of Rome
) that archaelogists have used the polution caused by Roman metalsmithing--as found buried in the Arctic ice cap--to gauge the extent of industry prior to Rome's fall. All in all, I'd say some good can come from global warming and pollution!
