Climate doomsday stories are now such a joke, even Mainstream Media can’t help having a pop.
CHRISTMARS CHEER Humanity DOOMED because Earth is destined to become lifeless red planet just like Mars, scientist warns
Our home world is losing its atmosphere with every second that passes, meaning that every living being is in peril.
EARTH is slowly turning into a barren red world just like Mars and it spells DOOM for every living being on the planet.
That’s the terrifying warning from a top scientist who wants our species to wake up to the grim fate awaiting us.
Anjali Tripathi, an astrophysicist at Harvard University, has spoken out about a “frightening” natural effect called atmospheric escape.
In a recent TED talk, she said that 400 pounds of hydrogen and almost 6.6 pounds of helium escape from Earth into space with every single minute that passes.
Eventually, this will cause such a massive change in the makeup of Earth’s atmosphere that life will be unable to cling on any longer and the surface will be become blood red and barren.
“Our hydrogen from water breaking down will escape into space more rapidly, leaving us with a dry, reddish planet.”
Happily, we have a few billion years left until this grim scenario plays out, so we’ve plenty of time to prepare for the inevitable apocalypse.
Merry Christmas everyone.
