Climate Change Recovery?

Postby TreeHandThing on Sat Mar 26, 2011 4:40 am

The timeline is the go-to place when you need to know about climate change. As of the writing of this article, Will is currently making a series of updates on the timeline, about how temperatures will rise from 1 degree celcius in 2021, to 4 degrees in 2070. Everyone knows that after the temperature rises above 6 degrees, a mass extinction will take place, with 90% of life dying out. The only survivors will be dogs, arthropods, rodents, snakes, hardy desert bushes, and cacti. Now when will this mass extinction recover? The ice age will occur in 20,000 years, will this recover the environment?

The next glaciation could be seriously disrupted. it could happen anywhere from to 10,000 to 20,000 yrs. If 90% dye out it would take millions of years or never to recover to where it was today. There are some that say that earth was nearing the end of its macro life habitability anyway.

Actually, global warming can cause an ice age in a process that is known as "The Great Climate Flip-Flop." If the world becomes warmer, ice will melt faster. Greenland's ice sheet will melt quickly, bringing cold, low-salinity water into the Atlantic. The water will disrupt the Gulf Stream and cause it to return to tropical waters before it reaches Europe. Then Europe will go into a deep freeze, experiencing similar temperatures to that of areas of similar latitudes, like Arctic Canada.

If you consider 600 million years in the future " near ".

Macroscopic life as a whole will certainly not go extinct in the "near" future. But big animals might. In Future Evolution, Peter Ward says that as long as humans continue living in cities and suburbs and building infrastructure that cuts across migratory paths and ranges of large animals, big animals will go extinct, for they will not have the undisturbed space they need. The megafauna of the Cenozoic Era have already gone extinct for the most part, he says, whether humans caused it or not, and many mammals on the large side are endangered or extinct because of humans. He thinks we will continue to see this trend in the future.

That is, unless humans go extinct, which would make much better television.

You'v been watching 'the Day After Tomorrow'.. I guess if Europe does cool off and get lots more snow, it could help slow global wearming as the sunlight will be reflected more.

I've never seen 'The Day After Tomorrow." Anyway, my post is based on scientific fact. Based on scientific fact. :D

You cannot prevent an open system composed of millions of millions of particles from changing. There is no cure for climate change because it is not a disease.

With the exception of calvar, I would say you guys should stop mentally *********ing to science fiction.

Really guys? "90 percent of species are going to go extinct in the next century?" Listen to yourselves. I can't believe anyone is throwing around The Day After Tomorrow as a credible source of scientific knowledge.

What's next, perhaps you guys will start claiming that the events in The Core are going to take place also.
