人类正面临着即将到来的物种灭绝吗?

    Will Mother Nature or Mankind be the destroyer of planet Earth?

    Every day we are reminded in all media forms that mankind is receiving a wakeup call from Mother Nature informing us that we are slowly destroying the climate of our beloved Earth. But what if Mother Nature's warning isn't a wakeup call, what if it's a slow kiss goodnight for mankind?

    It's a fact that the global temperature has steadily risen during the past 50 years or so, the 17 warmest years have occurred over the last 20 years. The average global rise in temperature is around 0.15 C per decade, which doesn't sound much but, according to this scale it'll have risen by a massive 0. 75 C within the next 50 years. And if the polar ice caps are already melting, it doesn't leave much to the imagination of what the Earth will look like by 2059!

    Would Mother Nature really exterminate mankind? The truth is - yes. Earth has witnessed many species rise and fall since it's creation, the dinosaurs are probably the most remembered amongst them.

    Australopithecus, Cro-Magnon, Neanderthal are to name but three extinct species. Each of those species could have evolved if they had been given the time to do so. Theories abound why they didn't survive, yet we all know for certain they didn't succumb to an asteroid or comet impact in the not too distant past. So what did happen to those species? Could it be fair to suggest that nature saw fit to replace them with a more intelligent species? If so, could this mean that Mother Nature is getting tired of us Homo Sapiens and has decided enough is enough, and we are the next species to disappear and duly be replaced by a higher form? And if you're left wondering where the next form of Homo Sapiens will come from, well that's a question that still defies a definitive answer.

    Earth is a planet which is in a state of flux. Since the creation of the Earth there have been many substantial changes in global terrain and global temperature; the Ice Age is the most memorable and the one which saw the demise of the woolly mammoth.

    The question we must ask ourselves is this: What has Mother Nature got in store for us?

    Will the oceans rise dramatically and our planet become a water world? Will the ozone layer be depleted so much that our Earth is scorched dry by the sun? Will superstorms ravage our lands and bring famine on a global scale? Could it be possible that some future volcanic action would devastate nuclear facilities and release deadly radiation into the atmosphere? Yes, it's a frightening scenario to think that we could be the cause of our own downfall.

    The future for mankind is looking extremely bleak. The clock is ticking…

    年夜自然照样人类,会将成为地球的歼灭者呢?

    每一天,各类媒体情势都提示着我们,人类一直从年夜自然那儿那里接到起床来电,关照我们,我们正在逐渐地破损着我们心地球的气候。但要是年夜自然的的申饬不是一个起床来电,要是它是一个送给人类说晚安时迟缓的亲吻,这又会是若何呢?

    毕竟上,已往约莫五十年里,环球气温已经稳步上升。最缓和的十七年已经在已往二十年呈现了。环球均匀温度每十年上升约莫0.15摄氏度,这不能声名什么,可是按照这一标准,它在接下来的五十年内,将会年夜局限地上升到0.75摄氏度。并且要是极地的冰帽已经正在熔解,地球到了2059年会成什么样,也就心照不宣了。

    年夜自然会革除人类吗?毕竟是会的。自从有了生命,地球目击了很多物种的呈现和消散踪,恐龙概略是它们傍边最能让人记取的物种。

    南方古猿人、克罗马尼翁人、尼安得特尔人是三种灭绝物种的名字。那些物种的每一类,要是偶尔刻让它们进化的话,它们已经完成进化了。有关为什么他们不能幸存的理论,我们都只能必定的是,在已往不太迢遥的期间,他们受不了小行星或彗星的影响。以是那些物种产生了什么事?年夜自然以为用一种更聪明的物种庖代它们更为契合,这种说法平正吗?要是平正的话,这是否意味着年夜自然对克罗马侬人已经感想厌倦呢?是否意味着充足就餍足了?是否意味着我们是下一个消散踪的物种并且注定被更高级的情势庖代呢?要是你还在思虑下一个克罗马侬人物种情势会从何而来,那么这是一个仍旧没有明晰谜底的题目。

    地球是一个一直厘革的星球。自从有地球有生命以来,在环球地形和环球温度产生了年夜量的厘革;冰河期间最令人难忘,它见证了长毛象的灭绝。

    我们必需扪心自问:年夜自然给我们储蓄了什么?

    海洋面会急剧上涨吗?我们的星球会变成一个水中天下吗?臭氧层会被主要消费甚至于我们的地球被太阳烤干吗?超级风暴会破损我们的土地,并且会在环球领域内带来饥馑吗?将来的一些火山勾当会摧毁核配置并且会向年夜气层开释致命辐射吗?会的,这个剧本危言耸听,想像一下,我们有年夜概成为使自己倒台的引前列。

    人类的未来看起来很萧索。台钟在滴答滴答地响……
