Could any of the soon to come events effect “gravity” somehow or us feeling the earth turning or braking?
If solar wind doesn’t tickle your fancy… we’ve got magnetic coupling, excursions, and field reversals too. Our hydrosphere is gonna feel it too when our magnetosphere gets torqued or otherwise dinged right? Currents like the Beaufort Gyre, NAO, PDO, ect. More and more day by day tiny flux on the sun, big effects on Earth.
The pressure differential of our terrestrial climate was so different millions of years ago that the Sauropoda (whose members are known as sauropods) could have necks in the 10s of meters. There are dozens of dinosaurs who are in this class. Buoyancy in the atmosphere of the terrestrial climate is literally the only explanation why that animal could walk around and function with a neck that long. What kinds of changes would our sun, the planet/core have to go through to go from a climate like that to our current circumstance?
The other question, what changes will it go through next, and what sort of constitution will we find after the fact?
Hydrosphere and necks reminds me of the hercules and hydra story that ben likes to talk about, and with politicians talking about bows in the quiver and ben with his theater of the gods, what kind of beast are we going to find at the end of these 7 miles is my other question… we seem to be getting ready to slay a shadow in the sun
Less “gravity” ?
I’m just speculating about the past now. We see what Mr. Durfee says is a history in which there were conditions in which animals had bodies with proportions or sizes that may not be compatible with the current conditions. There were also much larger eyes. In some history, if you read it as such, we hear there was a time when there was no rain and the atmosphere was saturated with moisture (so probably the lighting conditions were different then too). That would seem to imply that historically, there has been a trend of densification and cooling.
Like a bouyant mist?
So a nice windy sunny day would kill the large dinosaur :p
And the poor flying creatures like mosquitoes and triceratops?
How about less gravity for the dinosaurs, wouldent that solve it?
Also the large trees and massive leaves would love a little less G.
perhaps you are applying conditions as they are known now when you say “windy/sunny day”. what would a windy/sunny day be for a planet with a soup-ocean-mist for an atmosphere? this is where i have some difficulty with the concepts that seem to be put forward here, and that is that we take an assumption — that previous conditions were at some point exactly as they are today and that they will continue to always be — but I’m not so sure that is the case. it’s a little radical when you’ve never heard it conceptualized previously…
Yea, the sunny windy day thing was in good fun. I have heard the “dinosaur-weight” problem before and always thought it had to do with gravity. Sounds like it would be hard to fly in such a dense atmosphere. Anywho, interesting, checking it out. 🙂
I wonder why the reply link would disappear …
Keep it simple Aquatic mud swimming creatures? To me this seems more likely because adapting takes time and generations. Then a cataclysmic event happens and they all get washed up or drowned? A lot guessing going on with much we see in the geological records. Including the speed at which supposed sedimentary rocks are hardened when they could be fried by a solar flare and perhaps even microwave radiation? And speed up the supposed process? This seems to be a good guess at least in my mind!
