Q: Divesting from fossil fuel means you stop investing in a particular company which uses fossil fuel to make products. Then, the company will substitute natural resources for fossil fuels. Eventually, many companies will stop using fossil fuels for businesses この表現は自然ですか?
A: First of all, great job on your control of the English language. Your punctuation and grammar are great!
The only thing I had trouble understanding was
[Then, the company will substitute natural resources for fossil fuels]. This sentence means that companies will use fossil fuels instead of natural resources (which disagrees with your other sentences.

Instead, just switch it:
1. Then, the company will substitute [fossil fuels] with more natural resources.’

2. ‘Then, the company will replace [fossil fuels] with more natural resources’

This all means no more fossil fuels :)
Q: They're excavating to discover a fossil. この表現は自然ですか?
A: ''To discover'' means to find something unexpectedly or accidentally.

So,
''The archaelogists found a dinosaur fossil on the site.''
Sounds very natural.


Strictly speaking, in this case the sentense should be like this.

​​''They're excavating to find a fossil. ''
Sounds most natural.
This might just be me, tho.

Archaelogists are excavatlng in order to find a fossil.
That's not accidental or unexpected.
They believe they can find fossils on this site.




discover は偶然に発見するという意味です。
なので、
We found a dinosaur fossil.
我々は恐竜の化石を発見した。
は自然な文章なんです。

発掘は、偶然に発見するためにしているのではなく、発見するために発掘しているので厳密に言えば''find''がnaturalです。
でも、厳密ではないならdiscoverでもありなんです。
それくらい、通常のアメリカン人も言葉の意味を正確には理解していません。
日本人が厳密な単語の使い方を知らないで間違って使っている人も大勢います。それでもたくさんの人が使っているから通用していて問題なくなっている言葉なんてたくさんありますよね。


あの店は敷居が高くて入れない。
なんて、間違った使用法です。

会計のときに、
おあいそ、お願いします。とかも間違っています。

discoverの場合は正確な使い方を教ました。
ご参考までに。
Q: he's such a fossil. この表現は自然ですか?
A: Then yes, it does sound natural 😊
Q: It's remarkable that fossils are as common as they are.
What's the meaning of this sentence? Why "common"?
A: Here's another way to say this: "Its remarkable that fossils are found so often/that there are so many fossils". Maybe "commonly discovered" would be a clearer way to say this
