The beginning of life on the planet. Pete Cashmore brings even more insight to the discussion. Everyone knows that the lowest temperature on Earth (and other planets) at the poles. Therefore, life in the water originated at the North Pole, and on land – at the South Pole. When the equator was over 100 degrees and the water is in vapor state, at the poles the temperature was already 20-30 degrees, ie quite suitable for life. As the 'unwinding' and the cooling of the Earth, life is extended from the poles to middle latitudes and below the equator. Initially, the hot climate of the planet would boost the development of vegetation. Teppe sea and jungle forest covered the continents of the Earth. Forests enriched oxygen atmosphere. Giant animals lived on Earth. Where did the ancient seas. According to the law of conservation of matter nothing disappears without a trace, but only moves from one state to another. As the 'unwinding' slowly (periods of millions of years) the climate on Earth cool. At the poles throughout the year was only minus all the precipitation at the poles ever stayed there as ice. Shallow seas evaporated, meleli and dried, and ice caps at the poles have grown and grown. If now melt all the glaciers on the poles, all the ancient seas will be in their places. They have not gone anywhere, but only transferred from liquid to solid and moved to the pole. Ice Age. The theory of 'unwinding of the planets' Co time, our Earth is so far removed from the Sun, the glaciers reach the mid-latitudes.
