Science had not yet acquired a full understanding and application of electricity, nor could technology provide the precision parts needed for his machine. Pitter October 29, 2011 Imperialism is "the creation and or maintenance of an unequal economic, cultural, and territorial relationship, usually between states and often in the form of an empire, based on domination and subordination" (Johnston, 2000.p.375).

The PETM, according to carbon isotope excursions, �only� lasted about 120-170 thousand years .� The early Eocene (c. 56 to 34 mya), which followed the PETM, is also known as one of Earth�s Golden Ages of Life.� It has also been called a Golden Age of Mammals, but all life on Earth thrived then.� In 1912, the doomed Scott Expedition spent a day collecting Antarctic fossils and still had them a month later when the entire team died in a blizzard.� The fossils were recovered and examined in London.� They surprisingly yielded evidence that tropical forests once existed near the South Pole.� They were Permian plants.� That was not long after Wegener first proposed his continental drift hypothesis, and was generations before orthodoxy accepted Wegener�s idea.� Antarctica has rarely strayed far from the South Pole during the past 500 million years, so the fossils really represented polar forests.� A generation before the Scott Expedition�s Antarctic fossils were discovered, scientists had been finding similar evidence of polar forests in the Arctic, within several hundred kilometers of the North Pole, on Ellesmere Island and Greenland .� Scientists were finding Cretaceous plants in the Arctic, which were much younger than Permian plants. [395] Polar fo rests reappeared in the Eocene after the PETM, and the Eocene�s first ten million years was the Cenozoic�s warmest time and even warmer than the dinosaurian heyday. [396] � Not only did alligators live near the North Pole, but the continents and oceans hosted an abundance and diversity of life that Earth may have not seen before or since.� That ten million year period ended as Earth began cooling off and headed toward the current ice age, and it has been called the original Paradise Lost. [397] �O ne way that methane has been implicated in those hot times is that leaves have stomata, which regulate the air they take in to obtain carbon dioxide and oxygen, needed for photosynthesis and respiration.� Plants also lose water vapor through their stomata, so balancing gas input needs against water losses are key stomata functions, and it is thought that in periods of high carbon dioxide concentration, plants will have fewer stomata .� Scientists can count stomata density in fossil leaves, which led some scientists to conclude that carbon dioxide levels were not high enough to produce the PETM, so methane became a candidate greenhouse gas that produced the PETM and Eocene Optimum, and the controversy and research continues. [398] However the hot times we re created and sustained, Earth�s life reveled in the conditions. �Similar to reptiles' beating the heat and migrating into the oceans, some mammals did the same thing about 200 million years later, and cetaceans appeared .� Scientists were surprised when molecular studies found that whales share a common ancestor with even-toed ungulates, and the hippopotamus is the closest living relative to whales. [399] � Whales evolved in and near India, beginning about 50 mya, when the earliest �whale� surely did not resemble one and lived near water.� By 49 mya, whales could walk or swim. �A few million years later they resembled amphibians, and by 41 mya they became fully aquatic, for a transition from land to sea that �only� took eight million years. [400] � Wha les quickly became dominant marine predators.� However, sharks did not go quietly and began an arms race with whales, which culminated 28 mya in C. megalodon, the most fearsome marine predator ever: a shark reaching nearly 20 meters in length and weighing 50 metric tons. � It could have swallowed a great white shark whole, as seen below (C. megalodon in gray, great white shark in green, and next to that is a man taking a break in C. megalodon's mouth).� (Source: Wikimedia Commons) C. megalodon preyed on whales and had the greatest bite force in Earth�s history (although some estimates of T-rex bite strength equal it ).� C. megalodon went extinct less than two mya, due to the current ice age�s vagaries A Smart Kids Guide To SUPER SCOTLAND AND STONE AGE: A World Of Learning At Your Fingertips.

Although great mass death resulted from the end-Triassic extinction, dinosaurs emerged virtually unscathed.� Why?� It may have been due to their superior air sac breathing system, which could survive the hot times and record-low oxygen levels of the end-Triassic.
