With the help of archaeology, we can learn about our past. And our past helps us to build our future. On the other hand, our energy sources keep getting fewer day by day. And if we do not do something there will be no future anyways. As Barack Obama says “To truly transform our economy, protect our security, and save our planet from the ravages of climate change, we need to ultimately make clean, renewable energy the profitable kind of energy.” Renewable energy can surely save us. So in a situation like this, I can definitely say that I would choose to build a dam.
Water does not equal all the time of the year. Water may be low when water is needed most, namely in summer. Or when water is not needed much, namely in winter, water may be too much. Dams collect this excess water when it is not needed and deliver it to us when needed. People can use this water for drinking or in the parts they need in their lives. Also, plants can use this water to survive or to grow.
This water in the dams first turns into kinetic energy and then into electrical energy. And because the energy comes from the water it is totally renewable, it is safe. In addition, the accumulation of this water in dams prevents possible flood situations.
Overall building dams enhances our lives, saves our future. A region with invaluable archaeological value may help us to understand our past better and act accordingly in future. But if we have a chance to build a dam here we should use it. Because The energy that dam produces will be our chance to survive in future. If we can not survive in future how archaeological stuff will help us?
