New research confirms that wildfires may have triggered the world’s largest mass destruction
- The mass extinction of Permian 248 million years ago may have been partly due to widespread wildfires.
- “Climate fires should be further investigated as a direct cause of extinction, not just a sign of climate change,” say researchers.
- Scientists have unearthed fossils and fossil recordings of the Sydney and Bowen basins in eastern Australia and Antarctica for new insights.
Researchers believe that the Permian genocide, which killed all species of species 248 million years ago, may have been partly due to a wildfire.
Volcanic greenhouse gas emissions, high temperatures, and dry landscapes caused wildfires in areas that were previously wet.
Wet soils do not absorb carbon from the atmosphere, which in turn creates more heat.
Scientists have studied fossils to gain a better understanding of what caused Permian’s extinction. The sheep in the picture above can be seen burning in a forest on the hillside of Wrightwood, California
“When we looked at fossil records in Eastern Australia and Antarctica, we found highly burnt or charcoal plants in the last period,” said Chris Mayis, a professor of paleontology at University College Cork (UCC) and lead author.
Beginning with this high-altitude line, coal has finally reached its peak in Permian coal beds, with a significant but short-term increase in wildfires. Following this, for the next three million years, the previous tricycle was low-carbon, Mayes said in a statement.
During the extinction, rising temperatures and increased fire activity seem to have led to the destruction of all plants. Above is a forest fire in the Kyrgyz Republic of Northern Cyprus.
Researchers point out that carbon dioxide is needed to combat climate change; Otherwise, the world could be ‘unhealthy for hundreds of thousands of years’. Pictured above is a firefighter working on a firefight in Lag and Nguel, California.
The fossils of the Sydney and Bowen basins in eastern Australia and Antarctica are being disrupted by regular wildfires, according to researchers.
At that time, plants developed a variety of ways to cope with the constant fires of fire.
Still, researchers seem to have broken down all plants, including those that were trying to adapt to extinction.
The Permian Massacre is also known as the Great Death. Pictured above is a burning house of Zog Fire near Ono, California.
It took millions of years for the planet’s ecosystem to recover after that catastrophe.
An estimated 10 percent of all living things on earth today survive the extinction of perm, which is descended from animals, plants, and microbes.
It is believed that the chemical released by the volcanic eruption will remove the ozone layer from the earth and expose all living things to the sun’s intense rays.
Researchers also say that wildfires are the leading cause of death in the world today.
Our own global warming, including in Indonesia’s forests, has led to prolonged and frequent drafts and more wildfires in areas that are typically wet, the researchers said.
What was the Permian Massacre, known as the ‘Great Death’, which killed 9 out of 10 species?
248 million years ago, the Permian period was over and the Trisic period began on earth.
Marking the boundary between these two geological periods is the Permian mass extinction, nicknamed the ‘Great Death’.
This horrible event almost destroyed all life on earth.
Scientists believe that 95 percent of marine life was lost during the mass extermination, and less than a third of life on Earth survived.
Overall, 90 percent of the lives are believed to have been lost.
All life on earth today comes from an estimated 10 percent of the perimeter’s perimeter of living animals, plants, and microorganisms.
In the past, a huge explosion was believed to have prevented the sun’s rays from reaching the surface of the planet.
New discoveries, however, indicate that a massive volcanic eruption, which lasted nearly a million years, sent huge amounts of lethal chemicals into the atmosphere, stripping the earth of its ozone layer.
This destroyed the earth’s only protection from the sun’s deadly UV rays.
This powerful radiation can cause great harm to living things and increase the death toll.
Environmentalists say natural carbon emissions are an important factor in mitigating the effects of climate change.
Scientists involved in the study say that if these carbon dioxide is not absorbed, the world ‘could remain unhealthy for hundreds of thousands of years.’
Instead of a sign of climate change, wildfires should be further investigated as a direct fire extinguisher.
“We have the opportunity to prevent the world’s carbon offsets from burning and to avoid the catastrophic effects of global warming,” he said.
The study was published in the journal Paleos.
