It Could Happen Here
Planetary scientists say that the earth is in the Goldilocks zone, along with the planets Venus and Mars (both of which are uninhabitable). There is evidence that some 3 – 4 billion years ago, Venus had liquid water flowing on the surface. But global warming hit Venus, the surface temp getting so hot (750 F) that CO2 was released from the rocks.
Carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere has increased by over 24% in the last 50 years and by over 40% since pre-industrial times.
Shocking? You bet your ass, it is.
