Earth's Surface

by Raheem Davis


The Earth is a giant nuclear reactor, the particles in the Earth's core are known to be radioactive. When these particles decay radioactively heat is being produced. The iron is all in the core of the Earth, so what scientists think has happened is that the potassium has sunk with the iron down into the core of the Earth, and it’s down there in the middle, decaying, producing a lot of the heat that we have warming up the Earth today.

The chemical gases that are released in the air by us human beings could alter tectonic action at Earth’s surface. As long as greenhouse gas concentrations continue to rise, the amount of absorbed solar energy will continue to surpass the amount of thermal heat energy that can escape to space. The energy will continue to grow, and surface temperatures will continue to rise.
