(May 13, 2010)http://www.livescience.com/strangenews/051118_early_earth.html, Dillow, Clay. Welcome back. [Top 9 Ways the World Could End]. Most of the orbiting ring will then begin to decay, and the debris will impact the Earth. 12 of 16 people found this review helpful. The collision of plates will result in mountain building, thereby shifting weather patterns. [91] The Sun will experience more rapid mass loss, with about 33% of its total mass shed with the solar wind. © 2020 USA TODAY, a division of Gannett Satellite Information Network, LLC. This matches the geologic record of significant extinctions during the Phanerozoic Eon. [10][33][34][35] Despite such interactions, highly accurate simulations show that overall, Earth's orbit is likely to remain dynamically stable for billions of years into the future. There is a remote chance that the Earth will instead be captured by a passing binary star system, allowing the planet's biosphere to remain intact. He dubbed the resulting supercontinent, Amasia. As the sun dies it will grow hotter and global temperatures will rise to the point that our oceans will evaporate, Aguilar said. What might an accurate worst-case picture of the planet's climate-addled future actually look like, then?

But I was overwhelmingly struck with the beauty of the Shrophire countryside which to some extent was almost as much of an attraction to me as Jennifer Jones. [69], The result of this process has been a steady increase in the energy output of the Sun.

[7] It could result in a decline in biodiversity and homogenization of biotas, accompanied by a proliferation of species that are opportunistic, such as pests and weeds.

For example, the eccentricity changes over time cycles of about 100,000 and 400,000 years, with the value ranging from less than 0.01 up to 0.05.

In the introversion model, the younger, interior, Atlantic Ocean becomes preferentially subducted and the current migration of North and South America is reversed. ", World ending Saturday? Ward and Brownlee use fossil evidence from the Burgess Shale in British Columbia, Canada, to determine the climate of the Cambrian Explosion, and use it to predict the climate of the future when rising global temperatures caused by a warming Sun and declining oxygen levels result in the final extinction of animal life. However, without oxygen replenishment by plant life, they believe that animals would probably die off from asphyxiation within a few million years. Humans have long been obsessed with "The End."
