Skip to comments.The Planet Has Seen Sudden Warming Before. It Wiped Out Almost Everything

Some 252 million years ago, Earth almost died.
In the oceans, 96 percent of all species became extinct. Its harder to determine how many terrestrial species vanished, but the loss was comparable.
This mass extinction, at the end of the Permian Period, was the worst in the planets history, and it happened over a few thousand years at most the blink of a geological eye.
On Thursday, a team of scientists offered a detailed accounting of how marine life was wiped out during the Permian-Triassic mass extinction. Global warming robbed the oceans of oxygen, they say, putting many species under so much stress that they died off.
And we may be repeating the process, the scientists warn. If so, then climate change is solidly in the category of a catastrophic extinction event, said Curtis Deutsch, an earth scientist at the University of Washington and co-author of the new study, published in the journal Science.

The New Yawk Times says we’re all gonna die!
The arrogance of of man, believing he is the supreme force on earth. Nature is still in charge.
Zatso? What caused the warming?
And BTW, every other time the earth warmed, life flourished. It’s ice ages, even little ones, that kill.
The Times once again proves it is actually the Slimes.
Damn those ancient SUVs.
It had to be all those planes, SUV’s, and coal-fired steam plants that man used 252 million years ago...Not to mention all the electricity used in the swank mansions back then...
Was Zimmer alive thousands or actually millions of years ago? Nah!! Hey climate change weenies!! It’s the sun and physics stupid!
Notice they dont use meteorologists as sources. What does an Earth scientist know about climate change? Man was not even alive 232 million years ago.
>>> Some 252 million years ago, Earth almost died.
So, what did we human, esp. White Conservative Christian Straight Male, do then?
6 feet of new snow early in the season now at Lake Tahoe.
God this warming is terrible!
So globull warming is claimed to have happened before, and it was baaaad. What caused it? People from Atlantis driving trucks and suvs, heating and cooling their homes, jet plane travel?
What caused the previous Roman or Medival warm periods, just to name two, that were warmer than today?
Is hoax is anti-science. If there was really threat, these folks would be last to understand it. And, money would be better spent adapting, exploring, doing real science.
Living in tiny, crowded urban apartments without powered transportation is not living, may be existing, but not living and that is what these nuts are seeking. Serfs crowded into dense urban centers consuming little of anything - little more than slaves to the elites.
Im from the Government. Im here to change the climate.
Baby, it’s cold outside
Sudden warming was probably an asteroid that punch a hole that started the volcanic eruptions. Or a UFO crashing....
So want caused this? I am guessing the “scientists” are being paid to say global warming and are trying to convince us we can be the cause next. No cars or people back then is the problem. Not all the cars running in China could cause what one volcano can do let alone one the size of siberia.
They will twist into a pretzel to tie us to that event.
Maybe if we drill into the Super volcano called Yellowstone we can recreate what happen. In the meantime computer simulations are reduced to garbage in garbage out.
Time for the Old Grey Dinosaur to die.
