Experts from the University of Utah studied samples of sedimentary rocks located in Wyoming, and found that global warming is very similar to what we are witnessing is already happening on our planet 55.5 million years ago.

Study participant Gabe Bowen said that global warming occurs in two stages, each of which lasted about 1.5 thoUSAnd. Years. During these periods, due to the melting of methane ice (methane compound with water, the most widespread in nature, particularly in areas of permafrost) releases methane - a greenhouse gas, the annual amount of which was 900 thoUSAnd. Tons. As a result, the global temperature has risen by 5.8 degrees Celsius, and returned to normal only after 200 thoUSAnd. Years.
starting from 1900, annually emits 3 billion tons of greenhouse gases. Scientists say that the last time climate change has affected the biosphere: there was a significant species extinction, and now the consequences could be similar.
