What If the Firestorm Hit Earth

Fuzzy's and nuts are helping us discover our own past from the worst jobs in history to living alongside dinosaurs it's time to take a look at the worst natural disasters the Earth's history the earth is the only planet we know of that supports life but throughout its

History that life has had some really close calls but life never came closer to being wiped out completely than it did during the Permian Triassic extinction event because it took place over 250 million years ago it's been

Difficult for scientists to pinpoint the exact cause but most agree that an event known as the Siberian traps eruptions was a huge culprit in what scientists call the greats dying the Siberian traps were a huge volcanic formation in what

Is present-day Siberia that began to erupt toward the end of the Permian period just over 250 million years ago the exact cost of eruptions remain unknown though some scientists think they were triggered by a massive

Asteroid impact like that which may have killed off the dinosaurs while others believed it was a ticking time bomb all along just waiting to go off whatever the cause the Siberian traps eruptions lasted for two million years and left

Behind 720 cubic miles of lava and volcanic rock that's more than enough to cover the entire United States in several feet of red-hot magma to make matters worse the underground volcanoes erupted underneath several hundred

Metres of coal deposits the remains of millions of years of plant and animal life which ignited the largest firestorm the world has ever seen this resulted in an environmental catastrophe and acid rain with the pH overall lemon-juice an

Incredible 96 percent of all marine life and 70% of all land creatures died in the years that followed and it's the only known mass extinction of the most robust of all animal life insects life got off lucky and despite the

Devastation the dinosaurs would evolve from the survivors and come to rule the world but way way back in Earth's history life ended almost before it even got a chance to begin in a disaster known as snowball earth the Earth's

Climate began to subtly cool 850 million years ago and as the ice grew it reflected more sunlight back into space which resulted in even more cooling in what scientists believe was a runaway process the earth

Became a giant snowball with ice up to one kilometer thick in places though life consisted mostly of single-celled organisms it was almost completely eradicated and it wasn't until the discovery of deep sea hydrothermal vents

That scientists could explain how any life survived to evolve at all taking refuge in deep sea vents though life did survive and a gradual increase in volcanism began to release more and more co2 into the atmosphere warming up the

Planet out of its icy death-grip volcanoes acid rain ice ages the earth has been through a lot but it has never been through anything more violent than it did when it was just freshly formed as a young planet over four-and-a-half

Billion years ago the earth was still in its formative stage under a constant rain of asteroid impacts known as the heavy bombardment period devastating as they were all these comet master and impacts actually helped bring water and

Precious metals to earth to make it the world we know today but then one day the young earth suffered the greatest natural disaster in its history and events known as the fááá– impact with the second smaller proto planet sharing

A very close orbit to the earth only one of the two planets would end up surviving and about four-and-a-half billion years ago Earth's smaller companion called Vega by scientists was on a collision course with the earth the

Force of the impact knocked the earth into its current tilt and the debris of the explosion would form into the Earth's moon devastating but it's thanks to FEA that we have seasons and the moon that helps stabilize our orbit as we

Travel through space the earth has taken some pretty bad hits and lucky for us we run around to see the greatest natural disasters and its history but we're actually pretty lucky to be here at all and it's worth taking a closer look at

These times life almost went extinct completely
