Supercomputer simulation predicts when humans will be extinct


,- When the Sun reaches its lifetime, the star that illuminates our planet will explode and destroy many of the planets around it.

When that moment happens, life on Earth could be over.

However, before that happened, a simulation by scientists also turned out to predict when humans would be extinct.

This extinction, scientists say, may have been due to the continuing climate change.

Quoted from BGR, Tuesday (7/5/2024), climate change has become a global issue and a wider public concern.

Scientists are still trying to solve the problem. Some ideas are being launched, for example, sending bubbles into outer space to help block the Sun's radiation.

However, there is no solution yet to be fully implemented.

Meanwhile, climate change continues, threatening to melt the ice sheet that will cause hundreds of thousands of kilometres of coastline to sink into the ocean.

And now, according to a new simulation, the end of mankind could happen in 250 million years if climate change continues.

The simulation was carried out by a supercomputer using a variety of data related to the Earth's climate and marine chemistry, as well as the state of the tectonic and biological plates.

The simulation found that in 250 million years, the Earth's atmosphere would be filled with CO2.

That, coupled with the heat of the sun, would make the Earth unable to sustain all forms of life, including mankind.

Simulations show that Earth's temperature can reach between 40 and 50 degrees Celsius, which will only be worsened by high humidity levels, making the Earth more and more uninhabitable.

That is, the end of mankind is most likely due to a climate that makes it almost impossible to grow food.

Where the planet lacks water and food for mammals, thus pushing us all to extinction.

This is a frightening thought and scientists will surely keep trying to find ways to fight it.

The results of this simulation, published in Nature Geoscience, offer insights into the future awaiting humanity and hundreds of other animal species.
