Earth Will Enter The Hot Zone In Several Billion Years
In one of the longest range weather forecasts ever made, a team of UK scientists says that the increasing intensity of the Sun will evaporate the oceans and end life in about 1.8 to 3.2 billion years. At that point Earth will enter the “hot zone.” Oh yeah. They made this prediction by looking at models of other planets and their stars outside of our Solar System. They say these findings are important because it gives us clues about other planets in their system’s so-called habitable zones and the potential for the evolution of complex life…basically whether they have a window of habitability long enough to evolve complex life. But humans won’t have to worry about getting scorched up by the sun. We’ll die out way before that. Humans can’t survive with even a small increase in temperature.
