Question: my family use to say the world will blow up because of how hot it is.... Is it true?

  1. Luckily no! Heat would not cause the Earth to blow up.

    We do run the risk of the planet overheating though, but mainly because of carbon emissions. That could make it very difficult for us to live on Earth.

    And eventually (in about 4 billion years) the Sun will expand and engulf the Earth, but we don’t need to worry about that!
