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

Published

on



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

    I'm not easy to get a like or subsciption out of. But most of the video and channels Simon paticipates on make me wish I could subscribe and like more than once. Thanks to the team, I feel like Wikipedia is being delivered to me in video with a fine British accent and large vocabulary.

    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?"

    The oxygen catastrophe was much worse, but there's not a huge amount of physical remnants and no one cares about microbial deaths. 🙁

    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.

National Geographic Animals | Wild Crocodile Attacks Documentary – Discovery Nature Wild Wildlife

National Geographic (formerly National Geographic Channel and also commercially abbreviated and trademarked as Nat Geo) is an American digital cable and satellite television network that is owned by National Geographic Partners, majority-owned by 21st Century Fox with the remainder owned by the National Geographic Society.

The flagship channel airs non-fiction television programs produced by National Geographic and other production companies. Like History and Discovery Channel, the channel features documentaries with factual content involving nature, science, culture, and history, plus some reality and pseudo-scientific entertainment programming. Its primary sister network worldwide, including the United States, is Nat Geo Wild, which focuses on animal-related programming, including the popular Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan.

Nat Geo Wild

Nat Geo Wild (stylized as Nat Geo WILD or abbreviated as NGW) is a cable/satellite TV channel focused primarily on wildlife and natural history programming.

Africa is the world’s second-largest and second-most-populous continent (the first being Asia). At about 30.3 million km2 (11.7 million square miles) including adjacent islands, it covers 6% of Earth’s total surface area and 20.4% of its total land area.[2] With 1.2 billion[1] people as of 2016, it accounts for about 16% of the world’s human population. The continent is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, both the Suez Canal and the Red Sea along the Sinai Peninsula to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. The continent includes Madagascar and various archipelagos. It contains 54 fully recognised sovereign states (countries), nine territories and two de facto independent states with limited or no recognition.[3]

Africa’s average population is the youngest amongst all the continents;[4][5] the median age in 2012 was 19.7, when the worldwide median age was 30.4.[6] Algeria is Africa’s largest country by area, and Nigeria is its largest by population. Africa, particularly central Eastern Africa, is widely accepted as the place of origin of humans and the Hominidae clade (great apes), as evidenced by the discovery of the earliest hominids and their ancestors, as well as later ones that have been dated to around seven million years ago, including Sahelanthropus tchadensis, Australopithecus africanus, A. afarensis, Homo erectus, H. habilis and H. ergaster—with the earliest Homo sapiens (modern human) found in Ethiopia being dated to circa 200,000 years ago.[7] Africa straddles the equator and encompasses numerous climate areas; it is the only continent to stretch from the northern temperate to southern temperate zones.[8]

Africa hosts a large diversity of ethnicities, cultures and languages. In the late 19th century European countries colonised almost all of Africa. Africa also varies greatly with regard to environments, economics, historical ties and government systems. However, most present states in Africa originate from a process of decolonisation in the 20th century. African nations have attempted to cooperate through the establishment of the African Union, which is headquartered in Addis Ababa.

The Archaeological Discoveries That Changed Our View of History

Published

By



History is far more complicated that we would like to believe. Even in our schools today, different versions of events are being taught to students, depending on the country they’re in and how those events in history affected that country. “Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past,” right? Nevertheless, we also have archaeology, which sometimes helps us to better understand what happened regardless of what was written down in centuries past. And sometimes, some such discoveries turn the way we saw history right on its head.
