The appearance of the cold winter has made many people mistakenly believe that the earth is about to enter the Little Ice Age. It is important to know that in the past few years, some scientists observed the activities of sunspots and proposed that the earth may have entered the Little Ice Age. The arrival of this year’s cold winter has made many people think that this speculation is very likely to be true. high.
So will the earth really enter the Little Ice Age, and the temperature will continue to drop? If you think so, you are wrong. The earth’s temperature has not dropped, but will set another high temperature record in 2020 and reach the level of 2016. You know that 2016 was the hottest year ever by the host.
Since 2016, the earth’s temperature has not reached a new high, making many people think that global warming is a hoax, and the earth’s temperature is dropping step by step. But the arrival of another high temperature record in 2020 has given us a resounding reminder. The global temperature has not dropped, and the greenhouse effect is still intensifying. In the future, we will face more severe climate problems. The high global temperature in 2020 has caused some environmental changes that shouldn’t have occurred, which makes scientists very worried.
Among the many environmental phenomena caused by high temperature in 2020, the one that worries us the most is the rare high temperature phenomenon in Siberia in May 2020. We all know that the South Pole and the North Pole are the two coldest regions on the planet. It should have been covered with snow and ice, but as global warming intensified, the temperature of the North and South Pole is also rising.
The continuous rise of temperatures in the Arctic and Antarctica was originally expected by scientists, but the high temperature in some parts of the Arctic in 2020 has made people dumbfounded. In May 2020, rare high temperatures appeared in some areas of the Arctic, with the highest temperature reaching 38 degrees Celsius in one area.
Can the Arctic temperature reach 38 degrees Celsius? It is estimated that many people think that such a thing is nonsense. You must know that this is the North Pole, one of the two coldest regions on earth. But the fact is true. The Arctic will indeed have a rare high-temperature climate of 38 degrees Celsius in 2020. What an incredible thing, even many scientists can’t believe it. It can also be seen that the earth’s greenhouse effect is intensified. How fast.
In 2020, there will be “red snow, green snow” phenomena in the north and south poles. These are all related to the rising global temperature, but these phenomena are far less shocking and worrying than the 38 degrees Celsius high temperature in the north pole. Why does the occurrence of such high temperatures in the Arctic scare scientists? The reason is that the Arctic is not only a simple world of ice and snow, but also the largest permafrost region on earth.
I believe many of my friends have heard about the Arctic permafrost. Although Antarctica is also a land of ice and snow, Antarctica is a huge land floating on the sea. Although there are frozen soil layers, the scale is much smaller. It is completely incomparable with the permafrost in the Arctic. The Arctic is a real continent, and a large part of the ground is permafrost.
The Arctic permafrost has been formed for a very long time, possibly more than millions of years. In this vast permafrost, not only a large amount of methane and other greenhouse gases are sealed by ice, but also a large number of biological corpses and Countless kinds of ancient bacteria and viruses.
With the acceleration of global warming in Fengfeng, the permafrost is also melting and loosening. As the permafrost continues to melt, a large amount of methane is also released, which once again intensifies the greenhouse effect of the earth. The rare high temperature of 38 degrees Celsius in the Arctic in 2020 is largely due to the continuous release of methane in the permafrost as the warming temperature has increased the temperature rise.
If it only releases a large amount of methane, it will at most aggravate the greenhouse effect of the earth, and it is not too worried. What really worries scientists is that with the continuous loosening of the permafrost, the corpses of some ancient creatures are constantly appearing, and there are also ancient pathogens that have been frozen in the permafrost layer by tens of thousands. Years, hundreds of thousands of years.
We all know that bacteria and viruses are terrible. They can be said to be the end of life. People in ancient times had nothing to do with these bacteria and viruses. After human beings have entered the age of science and technology, although they have a better understanding of life, we still have to bow our heads in front of viruses. We can’t do anything about many viruses.
More importantly, the ancient virus millions of years ago is very different from the current virus. We know something about modern viruses, but we don’t necessarily know about ancient viruses. Therefore, once these ancient viruses of hundreds of thousands of years ago appear in large numbers, we do not understand them and may not be able to stop them, thus bringing terrible disasters to life on earth.
As early as 2014, French biologists discovered a virus called “Pithovirus sibericum”. The virus is 1.5 microns long, comparable to the size of a small bacteria. This huge virus makes scientists feel incredible. Our current virus cannot be compared with it. This virus has been buried in the ice of Siberia for 30,000 years, and it is also infectious.
This is only a 30,000-year-old virus, which is very different from modern viruses. So how terrible is the virus hundreds of thousands of years ago, or even millions of years ago? That’s why scientists are very worried when they see a rare high temperature of 38 degrees Celsius in the Arctic.
They worry that once the frozen soil layer continues to loosen and melt, a large number of ancient viruses of different eras may recover. Therefore, our scene is only a plot in a science fiction film, but according to the current ecological deterioration of the earth, such a plot may not be impossible in the future. Really staged. Therefore, the earth’s ecological environment has come to life and death, and protecting the environment to cool the earth is an urgent matter.
Of course, it is not easy to achieve this. The root cause of the intensification of global warming is human industry. It is caused by the large-scale use of fossil energy by humans, but the rapid development of human science and technology requires the rapid development of industry and the large-scale use of fossil energy. Without them, human technology will stagnate, which is not allowed.
Therefore, the rapid development of industry cannot be slowed down, let alone stopped. There are only two ways for humans to greatly reduce carbon dioxide emissions. One is to develop equipment that can quickly absorb atmospheric carbon dioxide through technology. After that, the large amount of carbon dioxide emissions caused by industry can be resolved.
Another method is to speed up the research on controllable nuclear fusion. Only by completely replacing fossil energy is the fundamental solution to the massive emissions of carbon dioxide. Without fossil energy, all kinds of pollution problems will basically disappear. Give the earth a little more time, then there is no problem in restoring to the past. Therefore, everything still needs to rely on technology. Technology has brought the earth’s ecological deterioration. Similarly, technology can make the earth beautiful again.
