The Past Reveals the Climate Breakdown We Are Headed Towards 

The idea that the past is the key to the present is a credo worth much in the fields of Earth science and geophysics, and it makes perfect sense.In the same way that observing natural processes happening today can help us interpret events within the geological record, so what happened thousands or millions of years ago can tell us what we might expect on 21st century Earth.One geological period that might have something important to say is the Permian, and the news is not good. Around 252 million years ago, the Permian was brought to an abrupt end by the greatest mass extinction event in the history of our world.
