When an Asteroid Hits Earth, Part Three
“So you burn things, kill everything in the ocean, and freeze the earth, and it goes through constant winter for about two years,” Scharringhausen added.
He doesn’t believe that all life on earth would die after a large asteroid impact as some small creatures survived the asteroid impact that once killed the dinosaurs.
Scharringhausen explained: “Not everything will die. If we think about humans, the way to survive would be to go underground.”
“You could maybe ride it out in a bunker if you have the supplies to get through this winter period when you can’t grow edible food.”
“Maybe the tricky plants that people like to grow don’t do as well, but there’s this seed bank. So if these are well protected enough, you could get farming going again.”
