Earth’s movement towards state of ‘hothouse’ not seen in 50 million years, epic new climate records show


Sixty-seven million years ago, thereafter Massive asteroids Hit the earth roughly with explosive energy 1 billion nuclear bomb, A shroud of ash, dust and vaporized rock covers the sky and slowly pours over the planet. As plant and animal species die en warts, Continued to reproduce small underwater forests called amoebae, forming strong shells from calcium and other deep-sea minerals, such as they had for hundreds of millions of years. When each forum essentially died – transformed into marine sediment – they kept a small piece of Earth’s ancient history alive in their fossil shells.

For decades, scientists have studied shells that look for clues about the temperature of the Earth’s ancient ocean, its carbon budget, and the composition of minerals circulating through the air and the sea. Now, in a new study published today (10 September) in the journal ScienceResearchers have analyzed the chemical elements in thousands of forum samples to create the Earth’s most detailed climate record – and find out how serious our current climate situation is.
