Astrobiologist states that as the sun gets hotter, CO2 levels will drop causing all plantlife on earth to die, followed by human life. HUH?? But….but….

The end of the world is (almost) nigh: Scientists predict that all life will  be wiped off our planet in less than a billion years

  • Astrobiologist Jack O’Malley-James says the sun will  get hotter and hotter causing greater evaporation which will reduce carbon  dioxide levels
  • This will  mean there is eventually too little CO2 for plants to survive
  • When they  die out, herbivores will also die out, followed by carnivores
  • Microbes  will then be all that remains until another billion years later when the seas  will also dry out meaning very little life will  remain

All animals and plants will vanish from the  Earth within the next billion years, a new study suggests.

Ironically Armageddon is going to arrive as a  result of too little, rather than too much, carbon dioxide in the  atmosphere.

Currently experts are trying to find ways to  cut levels of the greenhouse gas to prevent global warming running out of  control.

But as the Sun ages and grows hotter, greater  evaporation and chemical reactions with rainwater will take away more and more  carbon dioxide.

In less than a billion years, its levels will  be too low for photosynthesising plants to survive, say scientists. When that  happens, life as we know it on Earth will cease to exist.

With the loss of plants, herbivorous animals  will also die out, as well as the carnivores that prey on them.  Continue reading, here….
