The results from the latest studies done by the French laboratory of dynamic meteorology show that the oceans on our planet will evaporate after 1 billion years.
According to the data of experts, during that time the Sun will increase its brightness, which will lead to the disappearance of not only water bodies, but all of the water on Earth.
The French National Center for Scientific Research refuted past claims that the phenomenon in question would happen millions of years earlier.
The research of the French scientists revealed that the drastic changes in the Earth's climate during the next centuries will not be related to the warming of the climate because of human activities.
The reason for the radical temperature changes will be due to the increase of radiation from the sun.
Experts predict that during the next hundreds of years the temperatures on our planet will rise, causing a surge of climate warming.
This will lead to the boiling of the oceans and a drastic swell of the greenhouse effect.
Some past studies predicted that the Earth will look like Venus after merely 150 million years.
The results of the study also allow us to specify certain data about the so-called habitable zone around the Sun.
It is calculated that our planet can move closer to the Sun with 0.95 astronomical units without losing all of its water.
According to a study done by the World Resources Institute, 37 nations in the world would be left without water resources.
The study was carried out among 181 nations, with each one being rated on a scale of 0 to 5. The higher the number, the higher the risk of losing local water resources.
The leader in this list is Singapore, followed by Antigua and Barbuda, Bahrain, Barbados, Cyprus and Jamaica. In these countries, the consumption of water is greater than its availability.See more
