- TL;DR Summary
- How does Climate Change today compare to the Greenhouse event 250 million years ago that nearly ended life on Earth?
This video shows how geologists figured out that a huge greenhouse effect nearly wiped out life on Earth 250 million years ago. The explanation is premised on an analysis of rock samples found at the Permian-Triassic Boundary in Utah. It involves a lot of Chemistry and Earth science so I wondered to what extent these complex processes are at work today during climate change.
