(ORDO NEWS) — Imagine that in a second the Sun will go out forever, but the Earth will continue to rotate around the same center of mass (it will not fly away). What will happen to humanity? Most people will say that all living things will die very quickly and no one will be able to escape. Is it?
If the sun goes out, then our species can live for a very long time.
A very long time. Undoubtedly, everyone will have to unite, as incredible difficulties will await us. For example, after a few months, almost all plants will die, as photosynthesis stops.
However, we can build huge greenhouses with artificial lighting to solve this problem. It turns out that people will have food, but still less than usual. Without plants on Earth, herbivores will disappear, followed by predators. Without plants, animals will last a maximum of 3 months.
We shouldn’t worry about oxygen, it will last for a long time.
The amount of carbon dioxide will only reach dangerous levels in 500 years, but this time will be enough to create portable oxygen stations. We will solve this problem too, definitely!
The temperature will be worse: in a month, the average on Earth will drop to -25 degrees Celsius, and in a year to -80 degrees.
The fall will then stop due to the greenhouse effect. All reservoirs and the World Ocean will freeze, which will keep a positive temperature under the ice.
To survive in such conditions, you will have to move underground. By the way, bunkers will do just fine. You just need to understand that there will not be enough space for everyone and most of the representatives of the human race will be destined to die. As for the survivors, they will probably end in thousands of years.
