Study: Sun Will End Earthly Life in 2.8 Billion Years
The planet will become too hot for even the hardiest microbes.
The final days of life on Earth will come some 2.8 billion years from now, suggests a sobering new study.
Currently at a comfortable temperature for life on Earth, our aging sun will slowly warm over its lifetime. Within about five billion years, the sun will exhaust its nuclear fuel and bloat into a “red giant” star that may even engulf our planet.
Things will get toasty for existing life-forms long before that red giant stage is reached. The question examined by a team led by astrobiologist Jack O’Malley-James, of the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, is: When will things get too hot for life to continue?
Interaction in the marketplace is different from interaction elsewhere in life. People are more wary and skeptical in the marketplace, and with good reason. The market is where we go to spend money, hard-earned money. We do not want to be persuaded into parting with that hard-earned money for something that we either do not need, or for something of inferior quality, or for a price higher than we could have paid elsewhere.
To ensure that this doesn’t happen, people turn on a set of filters for viewing advertising that they don’t necessarily turn on for other aspects of life. When advertising becomes mixed with other arenas of interaction, we may not turn on those same filters, and become more susceptible to the message the advertiser is giving.
This is exactly what advertisers want, and exactly why the alternative advertising market is so attractive. It is also why alternative advertising is the subject of so much controversy, and susceptible to a greater backlash than other advertising markets.
