Death of life.Modern mass extinction of animals.
« on: 20/05/2005 14:09:52 »
Modern Age is the Age of Mammals.
Modern mass extinction was began with glaciation periods of a part of the Nothhern Hemisphrere.
A part of animals was died out.

But the basic danger for modern Earth life is the mankind.
Industrial and agricultural work
of mankind it kills a huge amount of plants and animals.
According to the World Guinness Book of records
the Austria-sized (84000 square kilometers) forest areas
is destroyed around the world by mankind yearly.
Daily is died out about 100 species of animals and plants.
====================
The most probably future of life:
1) The forests is a basic source
of the Oxygen in the Earth atmosphere.
Oxygen and water are a base of life of animals and the mankind.
-With a big forest decrease by a mankind the Oxygen level in atmosphere will be drop.
-Carbon dioxide level in  atmosphere will be increase and
towards to the end of the XXI-XXII century the Earth atmosphere will be consist of the gas, poisonous for animals and mankind.
The atmosphere will be similar to Mars atmosphere.
Animals and a mankind are died out totally without a Oxygen air..
=====================
Carbon dioxide atmosphere made much more hot temperature conditions for Earth climate and landscapes.
Earth climate will be become more and more warm towards to hot and very hot..
Water and oceans of the Earth will be evaporate.
Without a water , the plants and animals will be die out.
Earth landscape will be a desert landscape similar to Mars.
=========================
A way to rescue of Earth life is absent of a mankind on Earth.
But it is impossible.
And a fate of Earth life a death.

eh heres whats gonna happen (barring that technology fails with the end of oil in 2025)
1. Humans figure out fusion power, using hydrogen into helium. Humans will most likely obtain this from water, releasing O2 to the air, preserving us.
2. Humans develop fusion bomb.
3. Humans destroy sun...

or in 2008 when cerns super collider comes online they create anti matter and causes a chain reaction disintergrating earth...(this one is spooky because i believe thats the year that the mayans predicted the world would end. Also, according to saint malachis and many other predictions ratzinger will be the last pope and hes been right with all the other predictions.)

The Mayans believed the world would end in 2012, so that gives us 4 more years [8D]

Eat cake, for tomorrow we die...

Well if the Carbon Dioxide goes up, then plant growth efficencies also go up, converting more CO2 into O2. This has happened in the past, but I don't think there has been much research to try to define the fine points of this natural balance, and if it can ever be unbalanced. After all with the present ratio of O2 to CO2, the plants are currently starving themselves to death and using up far more CO2 then we are using O2.

I once heard that the Earth obtains most of it's O2 from the oceans !....and those collider things ....brrrrrrr !!!..I always shudder that they'll start off the next big bang !!

Men are the same as women.... just inside out !!

are you living in a time continuum 2 years ahead from us? [?];)

Ah, 4 more years from 2008 is what I think I meant, but I was very tired [|)]

Did they actually quote that, or is it just that their calandar runs out then?

I had an argument with someone about this a while ago. I pointed out that presumably if you etch out a calendar, sooner or later its going to run out.

Im looking forward to 2013 :D

sorry about this but

we have already developed and tested the fusion bomb

we can already create and have been for long time creating antimatter and yet guess what,  we're all still here:)

So, I guess the Mayans didn't want to hang about till then and  voluntarily made themselves extinct :D...hmmm...wonder if they predicted that too ? ;)

Dear RRR:

I believe that there may be a slight exageration in your prediction of the future of the planet Earth. HOWEVER you are correct that we face a serious danger that the human race may place too many burdens on the natural systems that support life on our planet.

This is not a joke, though some of the persons posting replies to your message seem to believe that it is a joke. Some people apparently do not expect to have great-grandchildren. Therefore they do not care if our planet will be livable in another 100 years. I do care about this issue. I do not think that to be anxious about this topic is silly.
Please continue to think about it and to discuss it. I think it is not likely in the near future for our atmosphere to run out of oxygen despite the destruction of forests. I believe that it is more likely that the rise of CO2 in the atmosphere will cause changes in the climate of our planet that will be hard to predict, but will be bad news for some nations, especially those which are easily flooded.
Frochai, moi droog!

I beleive we need to act now in terms of our consumption of fossil fuels... fully agreeing with James Lovelock (founder of the theory of Gaia) i feel the way forward is nuclear power. For the spent material remaining, it is the most efficient power source we currently have access to, and the small amounts of waste can easily be prepared and stored deep underground to decay with time.
