This is Earth's worst mass extinction disaster

Scientists have discovered new evidence of disasters that once destroyed 95% of marine life, 70% of land animals 250 million years ago.

According to Express, extremely little species survived the unprecedented Great Extinction named Earth Dying , which took place 250 million years ago.

This great extinction has lost 95% of marine life and 70% of land animals. Catastrophic environmental changes also formed during this period.

There is new evidence that Earth's most massive mass extinction 250 years ago was erupted by Siberian volcanoes.

Scientists at New York University have discovered new evidence that the underlying cause of the Great Dying Massacre is due to an unprecedented volcanic eruption at Siberian volcanoes.

The results of the stone sample analysis helped researchers discover that there is a global increase in nickel elements during the extinction period.

They said that this was due to a giant volcanic eruption at the Siberian volcanoes , because the rocks formed from the cold lava here contained the largest amount of nickel on the planet.

Geologist Michael Rampino explains that the eruption of volcanoes in Siberia may have caused global warming, causing a massive mass extinction unprecedented in the ocean and on land.

The eruption of magma onto the surface of the Earth during this period engulfed all in the sea of ​​fire. The eruptions are thought to have emitted a large amount of greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide and methane. When carbon dioxide filled the air, causing the greenhouse effect to make the Earth a "crematorium" , hotter than ever. Under the ocean, changing ocean currents have vanished many ecosystems, life is extremely fragile.

Sedelia Rodriguez, an Environmental Science lecturer hopes that research will determine whether another mass extinction event could occur in the future.

"We hope to learn more about the events that caused extinctions affecting both marine and terrestrial animals. In addition, we hope this study will contribute to determining whether a tragedy. similarly can happen in the future or not, " Ms. Rodriguez emphasized.
