Fw: Magnetic Flux Mass Extinction
- I try not to crosslist post very much, but this theme has been of running interest here and at THOR's...Another science-backed possibility, besides Impact Episodes, that could have created era and phase changes on Earth. This ties into the ongoing Plasma Universe/ Electric Universe relationship with Gaia and Sol.
Did Magnetic Flux Trigger Mass Extinction?
from Mitch Battros - Earth Changes MediaA new released theory suggests the Permian-Triassic mass extinction was set in motion 15 million years earlier, deep in the Earth. On the edge of the molten outer core, a plume of super-hot material began rising through the mantle, upsetting convection in the core and throwing the planet's magnetic field into disarray. It was a dying on a scale never seen before or since on Earth.The weakening of Earth's magnetic field exposed the surface to a shower of cosmic radiation, says Yukio Isozaki of the University of Tokyo. He believes the radiation broke nitrogen in the atmosphere into ions that acted as seeds for clouds enshrouding the planet.The fertile ocean and balmy supercontinent Pangea was transformed into killing fields, littered with the bodies of ancient animals. By the time the dust had settled on the Permian-Triassic mass extinction 250 million years ago, 90 percent of life on the planet had been snuffed out.The superplume of magma rising through the mantle disrupted the magnetic field and put a strain on creatures living on the surface, but it was only the beginning. Five million years later it reached the surface, Isozaki said, and the hot material punched through the crust, erupting as three successive supervolcanoes.
