(ORDO NEWS) — The planet Earth is believed to be approximately 4.5 billion years old. During this time, she has changed a lot. But can it be returned to its previous state, that is, so that it becomes what it was at the very beginning?
Scott Denning, Professor of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University (USA), notes that our Earth has already experienced a lot in 4.5 billion years. There were periods of strong fires, and cold, and mass extinction of living beings. However, the planet still exists.
According to the expert, in fact, the planet Earth is very stable and able to restore itself. However, the problem is that this recovery is extremely slow. That is, everything will be fine with the planet in the future, but humanity may have problems.
Humans are damaging the planet in many ways. This is air and water pollution, and the scattering of garbage everywhere, and the destruction of animal habitats. At the same time, humanity already knows how, thanks to the processes naturally occurring on the planet, all this can be eliminated.
Of the important problems to be solved is the pollution of nature with plastic. It is one of the materials that can remain in the soil for several thousand years. Another problem is the extinction of animals, plants, etc. It can be solved if one is attentive to the protection of living organisms.
The most serious damage to the planet is associated with the burning of coal, oil, and gas. As a result, the average temperature on Earth is rising more and more every year. Also, because of the burning of carbon fuels, the oceans and air are changing.
The only option that is possible in order not to aggravate the situation with warming is to stop burning carbon.
That is, people will still have to create a special energy system that does not require the combustion of different types of fuel. Solar, wind and geothermal energy can help with this. This is the cheapest way to get energy in the history of mankind. That is, the main way out in this case is the electrification of everything .
