Cha Cha Cha Changes

Life on Earth snuffed out by global warming

Suffocating global warming is to blame for the worst mass-extinction on Earth, according to international researchers tracking the cause of the "Great Dying" 250 million years ago.

Until now, circumstantial evidence suggested that an asteroid wiped out more than 90 per cent of all marine life and almost 75 per cent of all land plants and animals, like that which took out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.

Wait, forget what we said before, it wasn't an asteroid, it was global warming. Yea, that's it, it was global warming. We're sure now.

While she said the new findings were "significant" and "hard", she predicted they would not settle the debate entirely as scientists often found it hard to give up their favourite theories.

You can only get so many on the money train.
