    Coal-burning in Siberia led to climate change 250 million years ago

    A team of researchers has provided the first ever direct evidence that extensive coal burning in Siberia is a cause of the Permo-Triassic Extinction, the Earth’s most severe extinction event.

    “Our study shows that Siberian Traps magmas intruded into and incorporated coal and organic material,” Elkins-Tanton said. “That gives us direct evidence that the magmas also combusted large quantities of coal and organic matter during eruption.”

    The results of their study have been recently published in the journal Geology.

    Well, that's a pretty long winded quote, but it is a quote.

    A WARNING FROM HISTORY--THE CARRINGTON EVENT WAS NOT UNIQUE

    On Sept. 1st, 1859, the most ferocious solar storm in recorded history engulfed our planet. It was "the Carrington Event," named after British scientist Richard Carrington, who witnessed the flare that started it. The storm rocked Earth's magnetic field, sparked auroras over Cuba, the Bahamas and Hawaii, set fire to telegraph stations, and wrote itself into history books as the Biggest. Solar. Storm. Ever.

    "The Carrington Event was not unique," says Hisashi Hayakawa of Japan's Nagoya University, whose recent study of solar storms has uncovered other events of comparable intensity.

    A good example is the great storm of mid-September 1770, when extremely bright red auroras blanketed Japan and parts of China.

    They found that superstorms in February 1872 and May 1921 were also comparable to the Carrington Event, with similar magnetic amplitudes and widespread auroras.

    The Quebec Blackout of March 13, 1989, and an unnamed storm on Sept. 25, 1909, were only a factor of ~2 less intense.
