Global warming is a big concern to many these days. It does appear that there has been some warming in recent years, although there’s much debate on whether it’s mostly man’s fault or not. But I found an article recently that says there may be a bigger contributor to global warming than anything man has done. Mankind emits about 7 billion tons of carbon per year. But this new source may contribute 500 billion tons of carbon. And it may cause global warming to accelerate at a rate that we cannot stop. Are you curious yet?
The “new” source of carbon is actually very old. It’s dead animals from a long time ago, like prehistoric times. According to some scientists, their organic matter was stored in the frozen Arctic tundra. But now that the permafrost is melting, this is being exposed.
So if this “new” contribution to global warming is the downfall of all mankind, we can blame the woolly mammoths and saber-toothed tigers and dinosaurs, because it will be their dead carcasses that doomed us all. Go figure…
You can read more on that here.
So, what can we do about this potential end of the world? Let’s get the discussion started, since there are numerous important geniui here (both good and evil). (And yes, even an evil genius should try to help, because if all life on earth ends because of this, there will be no world to conquer, and his life’s work would be in vain. But I digress…) What can we do to save the world?
