Ученые раскрыли причину первого глобального потепления в истории планеты

Scientists came to the conclusion that the perpetrators of the first on earth, global warming became the ancient relatives of earthworms, ate all the stocks of organic matter at the bottom of the first earth’s oceans.

“At the bottom of the ocean there are many animals that are constantly “plow” him like rain worms you have in the country. Their appearance in an era when bioturbation soil did not exist, was supposed to radically change the face of the Earth as a whole”, — commented on the theory of an expert from the British University of Exeter, Tim Lenton.

So, about 540-520 million years ago, the then earthworms have created a sharp jump in temperature on the planet, which led to the emergence of the ancestors of the majority of the currently existing species on earth.
