The question you quote and ask in your post title isn't the same question the article is discussing. One's about previous human civilizations and the other's about pre-human (so non-human) civilizations.

Ah. Good catch. I was imprecise with my wording.

I equated humanity with industrialized civilization - like the author did - and didn't clearly state that the previous humanoid civilization would not have been Homo Sapiens, but a different genus.
