    This isn’t really new. It does need more attention though.

  3. So we are now overdue by approx. 34 million years?

  4. Blah blah blah

  5. the end is near, repent all your sins.

    If you believe the only cycle to Earths extinction events are meteor impacts, you are sadly under informed. There is quite a bit of adequate evidence suggesting the Sun causes “traumatic events” to the Earth roughly every 12,600 years. Then there are volcanoes and earthquakes, very greatly triggered by the Sun’s cycle and intergalactic cosmic rays… but naw, let’s focus on dinosaurs and meteors. Oh, by the way, we are just about due for another hit on the 12,600 year cycle. Not to mention the ever weakening magnetic field (down 20 percent), the moving of the magnetic poles, increased volcanic eruptions to heights that cause a cooling effect, the Beaufort Gyre becoming “unstuck”, etc, etc. Mother Nature has humanity in Her sights……

  7. So why dont you look to see if there is a connection between a large impact and a volcano event… I bet there is . It seems to me ..if you put millions of tons of material in one side at very high speed , it by physics alone, should put something out the other side or the available vent structure.. (volcanoes).. All that new material cant go back the way it came…. and it is being introduced faster than it is removed… shock induced pressure wave through the mantle?

    Very interesting

  9. The text read: “…48 analysis” 😂😂😂

  10. Humanity has gotten out of control. Time to wipe the slate.

  11. When I read the video title, I thought it was going to be about how covid is going to cause a mass extinction 😂

  12. 99% of species on earth that lived are now extinct

  13. This guy needs a job,

  14. You realize this isn’t news right, news networks are getting closer to YouTube channels by the day

  15. Yet humanity has all of its eggs in one basket.
    Get off this rock before it’s too late.
