The earth is dying from global warming. Scientists have been saying this for years, but it seems like people just aren’t listening. Maybe they’re too busy watching Netflix and playing video games to pay attention to the news, or maybe they think they’ll be dead by the time it happens.
The truth is that the earth is dying right now, and we’re all going to be part of it—whether we want to be or not. Here’s how:
1. The earth will die from global warming when the sun expands and swallows it up. This is probably the scariest scenario: if the sun were to expand, our planet would be swallowed up in a fiery ball of plasma—all life on earth would be extinguished in an instant! Fortunately for us, this scenario isn’t likely to happen anytime soon—but it could happen at some point during our lifetimes!
2. The earth will die from global warming when the oceans boil away. Water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit (100 degrees Celsius), so it takes quite a bit of heat energy to turn water into steam and boil off oceans.
