The reason of mass death of ancient civilizations is called


Scientists of the University of Wyoming (USA) have come to a conclusion that the ancient civilizations existing in the last 10 thousand years have been synchronized with each other what point approximately coinciding changes in consumption of resources and energy to. Thus, various cultures have been connected with each other as a result of globalization, and death of one of them provoked disappearance of others. Article of researchers is published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences magazine. Researchers have analysed historical records (for the last 130 years) and the wood given the radio-carbon analysis, charcoal, bones and other samples age to 10 thousand years taken from various sites of the USA, Australia, Great Britain, a northern part of Chile and other countries. On the basis of this information scientists managed to estimate energy consumption (in the form of food and a forage for farm animals, fossil fuel, electricity) human societies at various periods of time. Experts have also compared rhythmical changes in consumption of energy between civilizations in different regions of Earth and have estimated synchronization level. It has turned out that levels of consumption of energy at ancient human cultures really oscillated in beat with each other, however the level of synchronization fell with increase in geographical distance between the people. Scientists explain such result with the fact that between societies there were communications which existed during as a short period (trade, migratory and political), and thousands of years (the general economic policy). However process of globalization could lead to synchronous crash of many civilizations. People seek to develop infrastructure to make inflow of resources stabler on the scale of decades or centuries, however because of it social and economic systems become more specialized and vulnerable to considerable changes of the environment. According to researchers, it needs to be considered in policy of sustainable development which assumes interaction of various countries and the coordinated use of resources.
