The end-Triassic extinction once again nearly drove ammonoids to extinction and perhaps only one genus survived.� The reefs that began to recover in the late Triassic were again eradicated and did not reappear until more than 10 million years later.� Bivalves, brachiopods, and gastropods lost about half of their genera.� The marine reptile placodonts, which specialized in eating mollusks, went extinct, and plesiosaurs and ichthyosaurs were the marine apex predators to begin the Jurassic.� On land, it was nearly the end for therapsids; afterward, until their final extinction in the early Cretaceous, they were marginal fringe dwellers.� All large terrestrial non-dinosaur archosaurs went extinct and left dinosaurs unchallenged for terrestrial dominance during the Jurassic Democracy In America: Complete.

History Notes Volume I (Chapters 1-14)

About 2.6 m illion years ago, when our current ice age began, our ancestors began making Oldowan culture stone tools, which was soon followed by the control of fire, and the human journey�s First Epochal Event(s?) transpired. The human evolutionary line�s brain then grew dramatically .� About two million years later, the human line evolved to the point where behaviorally modern humans appeared, left Africa, and conquered all inhabitable continents.� Their expansion was fueled by driving most of Earth�s large animals to extinction .� That Second Epochal Event was also the beginning of the Sixth Mass Extinction .� After all the easy meat was extinct and the brief Golden Age of the Hunter-Gatherer ended, population pressures led to the Third Epochal Event: domesticating plants and animals.� That event led to civilization, and many features of the human journey often argued to be human nature, such as slavery and the subjugation of women, were merely artifacts of the energy regime and societal structure of agrarian civilizations.� Early civilizations were never stable; their energy practices were largely based on deforestation and agriculture, usually on the deforested soils, and such civilizations primarily collapsed due to their unsustainable energy production methods.� As the O ld World�s civilizations continually rose and fell, Europe's peoples rediscovered ancient teachings that contained the first stirrings of a scientific approach. �Europeans used energy technologies from that ancient period, borrowed novel energy practices from other Old World civilizations, and achieved the technological feat of turning the world�s oceans into a low-energy transportation lane .� Europeans thereby began conquering the world.� During that conquest, one imperial contender turned to fossil fuels after its woodlands were depleted by early industrialization .� England soon industrialized by using coal and initiated humanity�s Fourth Epochal Event .� England quickly became Earth�s dominant imperial power, riding on the power of coal.� As E uropeans conquered Earth, elites, who first appeared with the first civilizations, could begin thinking in global terms for the first time, and a global power structure began developing. �As we learned the hard way, that power structure is very real, but almost nobody on Earth has a balanced and mature perspective regarding it, as people either deny its existence or obsess about it, seeing it as the root of our problems when it is really only a side-effect of humanity�s current stage of political-economic evolution, which has always been based on its level of energy usage .� Toda y, industrialized humanity is almost wholly dependent on the energy provided by hydrocarbon fuels that were created by geological processes operating on the remains of organisms, and humanity is mining and burning those hydrocarbon deposits about a million times as fast as they were created. �We are reaching peak extraction rates but, more importantly, we have already discovered all of the easily acquired hydrocarbons .� We are currently seeking and mining Earth�s remaining hydrocarbon deposits, which are of poor energetic quality.� It is merely the latest instance of humanity's depleting its energy resources, in which the dregs were mined after the easily acquired energy was consumed.� The megafauna extinctions created the energy crisis that led to domestication and civilization, and the energy crisis of early industrialization led to using hydrocarbon energy, and the energy crisis of 1973-1974 attracted my fellow travelers and me to alternative energy.� However, far more often over the course of the human journey, depleting energy resources led to population collapses and even local extinctions of humans in remote locations.� Expanding and collapsing populations have characterized rising and falling polities during the past several thousand years, ever since the first civilizations appeared University of Chicago Readings in Western Civilization, Volume 1: The Greek Polis (v. 1).
