The Rocky Story about an Ecological Catastrophe 252 Million Years Ago
A few years ago near Žiri, Slovenia, geologists found a limestone layer that was formed during the Permian-Triassic extinction 252 million years ago. The catastrophe deserves particular attention, among other anomalies was also high increase of the temperature. Geological sites with a well-defined Permian-Triassic boundary are rare in Europe and the site will be preserved and presented by the local community and geologists to remind us of how vulnerable Earth and its inhabitants are.
