Preamble:

The earth is our home for survival, and our home is facing great pressure and challenges. Since the Industrial Revolution, the rapid development of human beings has also brought great damage to the earth's environment. A series of environmental problems, such as global warming, melting glaciers, and rising sea levels, are threatening all life on Earth. The news from Siberia once again reminds us of the urgency and gravity of environmental problems. What does it mean for humans that the permafrost is beginning to melt, and the permafrost is even preserved with ancient organisms and viruses?

With the thawing of the Siberian permafrost and the discovery of 14,300-year-old organisms, it may be time for humanity to wake up

1. The permafrost has melted for 10,000 years, and hidden organisms have been discovered

In the Arctic region of Siberia, there is a vast permafrost, which preserves a large number of paleontological and plant remains, which can be traced back almost to the beginning of the formation of the earth, which can provide valuable information for scientists to restore the ancient ecological environment of the earth. As the global climate continues to warm, this vast permafrost has begun to melt, and some ancient biological and plant remains have been discovered.

When studying the organisms and plants in the permafrost, archaeologists even found a wolf from 14,300 years ago, and the wolf's head is so well preserved that scientists can clearly see the huge difference between ancient wolves and modern wolves. This has also given scientists a deeper understanding of the evolutionary process of wolves, which is of great significance for studying the evolutionary process of organisms.

In addition to wolves, scientists have also discovered many other paleontological and plant fossils in other parts of the permafrost, each of which can provide valuable information for scientists to restore the ancient ecological environment. Although these paleontology and plants have brought many surprises and gains to scientists, the melting of the permafrost represents a great threat to humans.

Second, the hazards of thawing permafrost

1. Release unknown bacteria and viruses

The thawing of the permafrost will not only allow paleontology and plants to be discovered, but more terrifyingly, there may be some unknown bacteria and viruses in the permafrost, which are derived from the ancient organisms of the earth, and have been preserved for tens of thousands of years in an extreme environment, which may pose a great threat to human beings, once these unknown bacteria and viruses are released, it may have an immeasurable impact on human life and health.

  2. The ecological balance is broken

The thawing of the permafrost may also cause a serious impact on the ecological balance of the earth, the permafrost can preserve a large amount of organic carbon, once the permafrost thaws, these carbons will be released, aggravating the earth's greenhouse effect, thereby accelerating the process of global warming, causing a huge threat to the earth's ecological environment.

Once some ancient bacteria and viruses are released, they may have a significant impact on the biological chain on the earth, and some animals and plants may be attacked by these ancient germs, resulting in their population reduction or even extinction, which will have an immeasurable impact on the ecological balance of the earth.

3. The alarm bell of global warming

The thawing of permafrost has once again sounded the alarm bell to mankind, which allows us to see the seriousness and urgency of global warming, and some wrong behaviors of human beings are the culprits of global warming, such as excessive exploitation and use of fossil energy, excessive emission of greenhouse gases, etc.

Our wrongdoing is like a sharp double-edged sword, which may bring us some convenience and benefits in the short term, but in the long run, it will bring us huge disasters and harms, and these disasters and harms may be like the butterfly effect, through small actions, little by little, and eventually evolve into irreparable disasters.

All life on the earth is inseparable from a good ecological environment, our survival and development is also inseparable from the earth's resources, we should respect and cherish every inch of the earth's land, every drop of water resources, every tree, only in this way, can we build a harmonious and beautiful home.

Epilogue:

The impact of permafrost thawing is far more than what we know so far, and the threat it poses may be irreversible, and human beings should learn from it, summon up the courage, take the initiative to correct our wrong behavior, actively participate in environmental protection, and make their own efforts for the future of the earth, so that our children and grandchildren can live happily in a beautiful homeland.
