Top 10 APOCALYPTIC FACTS about the Earth’s Greatest Mass EXTINCTION



Humanity’s rise to become the dominant species on the planet seems to have been a fairly orderly progression from one species to another. But this could not be further from the truth. It was more like an arbitrary, often brutal process; a sort of “survive or die” situation. Since life began on our planet, probably some more than 4 billion years ago, Earth went through a series of ups and downs in terms of its living creatures. So much so, that 99% of all beings that have ever existed, are now gone. The planet went through 5 or 6 major events where more than half of its inhabitants were extinguished, with another series of smaller ones taking place now and again.

    What scientists fail to take into consideration is that we are running out of hydrocarbons to burn. So its likely we'll never get as bad as the great dying although I can't say the same for humanity.

    Simon is a typical britt. He preaches the carbon socialism. He wants to break the back of successful industrial societies and cripple third world countries in his endeavor to get world socialism, no matter how many must die.

    More than the simpering UK people, I have never met a regretful or apologetic or self policing muslim after 911. Hell atleast the Brits changed their name to Windsor during ww1. But the mussies dont think they did anything wrong as a community. Hell the japs in this country were treated to internment camps yet they showed up and fought. Not so our Islam Americans. They want sharia in this country. I am not a racist. I am a culturalist, and muslim culture is evil. a

    There's new evidence that suggests one of the factors which played a role as well, was the ignition of vast coal deposits. This was mentioned in one of "The Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey" episodes; S1E9 "The Lost Worlds of Planet Earth."

    I liked the video. But the last note comparing Venus to Earth in terms of the risks of global warming lost me. I do not see the connection between planet-based warming (including man-made) and heating because of the sun. I believe it is extremely improbable that Earth's temp. gets similar to Venus's ever. Additionally. Extinguishing all live on Earth through global warming seems impossible. microorganisms will most probably still be there at the end. Hence live will keep going even if no plants and animals are left.

    TopTenz is a great learning resource and Simon a great teacher. Full-meal range – tragic (worst despots), inspiring (celebs once homeless), serious (environment, addictions), fun (Richard Gere links) and more – gives Brain Gym capacity-building. Simon, you engage us with great voice, classy accent (a pox on the naysayers), crystal clarityy at speed, and England's great cultural assets of dignity, humour and discretion. To quote the Gershwin brothers in I Got Rhythm, "Who could ask for anything more?"

    I wish he would quit calling it evil. It's not evilution, it's evolution. And he can't say I'm from England, and we came up with English, which means I know how to say words properly, Nana Nana boo boo. I'm guessing, without looking it up, evolution comes from Greek or Latin.

Visiting Mars May Actually Become a Reality After New Discovery




Do you have dreams of one day settling on Mars? Then we have some pretty exciting news for you.

In the latest issue of Science, researchers confirmed the discovery of easily accessible water ice located beneath the planet’s surface. Though scientists have known about water on Mars for years, these deposits are much different than those previously discovered. How so? They’re relatively pure.

“At these locations its quite a thick ice sheet of rather clean ice,” said USGS planetary geologist Colin Dundas, who was involved with the discovery. “There’s certainly some amount of dust and debris in it, and there can be small amounts of salts or other things as well, but what we’re seeing at the scarps are predominately ice.”

The size and purity of these ice sheets can be extremely beneficial for future missions to Mars. Not only can this water be mined for drinking or growing crops for long-term visits, it can also be combined with carbon dioxide to create oxygen or be converted into rocket fuel, which would significantly decrease the payload.

Incredible T-Rex Discovery Reveals Something Amazing




Incredible T-Rex discovery reveals something amazing. We take a look at the incredible discovery of a tyrannosaurus rex.

Aside from being one of the largest of the known carnivorous dinosaurs, Tyrannosaurus rex is the dinosaur that has arguably received the most media exposure.

Due to tyrannosaurus rexs popularity it’s spawned a huge number of books, movies, TV shows, and even video games. What’s truly amazing, though, is how much about this carnivore that was once assumed as fact has lately been called into question, and how much is still being discovered.

Thank you for watching!

Thank you to CO.AG for the background music!
