The BBC have produced a simple yet striking infographic, detailing what will happen to earth and its population in the far future.
Ever wonder what will happen to humans and earth in 1,000 years? 100,000 years? 100,000 years? If you have, then you’ll find this new infographic from the BBC extremely interesting.
According to the infographic, which is featured below, 1,000 years will see most modern-day words extint, a new North Star and the decay of modern buildings. 2,000 years will see Greenland’s ice sheet melted, raising see levels by 6 metres.
In 13,000 the Earth’s axial tilt will have reversed, and 20,000 years will see Chernobyl finally safe for people to inhabit. In the longer term, 10,000,000 years will see a new ocean form (dividing the continent of Africa), and 1,000,000,000 years will see the extinction of the human race as the increase in the luminosity of the sun see’s Earth’s surface temperate rise to 47C, evaporating the oceans and destroying complex life on the planet.
