"Changing Nature" Tom Trbovich Kirk Thatcher July 20, 1994 D365
The family prepares to celebrate the return of the Bunch Beetles, who arrive back on Pangaea every May 14th to eat the rapidly growing Cider Poppies. This year, however, they fail to arrive and it soon emerges that WESAYSO built a wax fruit factory on top of their mating ground and killed the species. Without the Bunch Beetles to eat them, the Cider Poppies quickly begin to overrun the continent. More concerned with bad publicity than any threat to the ecosystem, B.P. Richfield chooses Earl to take care of the problem. Earl, eager to quickly get rid of the poppies instead of looking for a long-term solution, chooses to spray everywhere with defoliant. Although this succeeds in getting rid of the Cider Poppies, it also manages to destroy all plant life on the entire planet. Deciding that rain is needed to bring back the plants, Richfield decides to drop bombs in every volcano, reasoning that the clouds they produce will bring the rain. Instead the volcanoes produce thick black clouds, blocking out the sun and plunging the planet into an ice age. Earl finally realizes what a mistake he made by tampering with nature and taking it for granted, however it is too late. He apologizes to his family for ending the world, but promises that dinosaurs won't just disappear. The Sinclairs agree that they'll remain a family no matter what happens, as the house begins to be buried by snow.

Carnian Pluvial Episode might be a new one to add to the big five, or six if you count the current one playing out in our brutish and short human timeline.

calzino, Wednesday, 23 September 2020 07:49 (one year ago) link

Probably not one of the "big 5" (or 6_). More of a "dwarf" mass extinction, like the end-Edicarian (541 Mya), Capitanian (260 Mya), or Paleocene-Eocene (55 Mya). Since the marine fossil record is so much more complete, that's generally used to plot extinction intensity, and there no real signal of the Carnian-Pluvial above the noise in that data set.

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/06/Extinction_intensity.svg/1200px-Extinction_intensity.svg.png

Still, the first 17 My of the Triassic were possibly the worst extended period for life since the Snowball earths of Cryogenian. First the two great extinction pulses of the Great Dying (end-Permian), then another 9 My where life is scarce and gains little traction, and in another 8 million years, the Carnian Pluvial.

Haha I read the thread title and my first thought was “Does KM have anything to contribute to this topic?”

or imagine being murderer (aka predator animal trying to survive) and it's the end of the world right after you kill the other dino friend. you'd be like "is god punishing the world for what i did? how important am i?"

…And there it is.

I was just reading history of the Lisbon earthquake of 1755 in relation to the rise of atheism. The thought processes were very similar, but with a lot more god blaming.

recovering internet addict/shitposter (viborg), Wednesday, 6 October 2021 18:09 (two weeks ago) link

hahaha!

yeah, i mean in many ways the world makes a lot more sense if you think of it as god punishing people for one thing or another. especially if you think that god is flawed and constantly makes mistakes!
