Earth’s Environmental Future!

When it comes to Earth’s future in general, there is no telling if there really is a stable future. With so many problems varying from pollution, the sun pushing our home planet to its outer atmosphere forcing it to the core to its flaming hot demise, and possibly God bringing our world to its end by a wave of his hand (to all of the Holy Book believers), there’s no really telling what might actually happen. Although all of these may sound scary and intimidating to us, there is science, which also might end all of these problems from occurring or even from possibly happening. All mankind can do is hope that we will progress in our studies and stop all of these occurring or possible problems from continuing to help mankind actually have a stable future.

One of the problems that will bring Earth to its end would be the sun. Although the sun has been so kind to us in the millions to even billions of years that humans have inhabited the Earth, this problem I’m about to explain is nowhere near kind in the sense of our species being gone forever and our planet being burnt to bits of ash. This problem is the sun pulling in our planet to its extremely hot core burning us to bits and pieces. How could this possibly happen? According to scientists that were interviewed on Fox News, they had this explanation on the Earth’s end, "The drag caused by this low-density gas is enough to cause the Earth to drift inwards, and finally to be captured and vaporized by the sun," explains astronomer Robert Smith of the University of Sussex in southern England”. WOW! Thinking that this explanation can even be possible can boggle an everyday human’s mind. There are good news and bad news on ways of thinking about this. The good news on this idea of the end is that this wouldn’t happen for another 7.6 billion years, the bad news would be that life on Earth would be gone long before that happens. Why would this be bad news? This would be bad news because...
