 A Hebrew Cosmogony
According to this cosmogony and natural history, the hunger for flesh and the thirst for blood was an obvious result of the catastrophe.
Like the former catastrophe of the fall of man, this catastrophe of the deluge, according to the Hebrew cosmogony, changed the nature of herb, animal, and man. The prosperity of the time before the great flood was gone without return; the world lay in ruins.

 The Oil We Eat (Harpers.org)
Those who model our planet as an organism do so on the basis that the earth appears to breathe—it thrives by converting a short list of basic elements from one compound into the next, just as our own bodies cycle oxygen into carbon dioxide and plants cycle carbon dioxide into oxygen.
This explains why the Mississippi River, which drains the nation’s Corn Belt, is an environmental catastrophe.
Iowa’s fields require the energy of 4,000 Nagasaki bombs every year.

 How Will The World End?
The whole world consumes about 600,000,000 tons of coal a year, and to this must be added the consumption of oxygen by wood and other vegetable substances which raises the equivalent coal consumption of the world to not less than 1,000,000,000 tons a year.
The "End of the World" may be taken in two different senses, as meaning either the annihilation of our planet by sudden catastrophe, or by gradual decay, or else the disappearance of human life from the face of the globe, owing to some state of circumstances, possible, at any rate, if not probable.
Some put their faith in a celestial catastrophe so terrible as literally to wipe our earth out of existence, while others prefer to believe that though man may no longer be able to exist, the world will still continue its appointed motions.

 Test Puts Hybrid Rockets Back On The Table
A hybrid rocket could provide the necessary propulsion to separate a crew capsule or the whole vehicle from the launcher in a catastrophe, particularly if liquid oxygen already carried on board for other purposes were used as the oxidizer.
The rocket case around the fuel was insulated on the inside to protect it from burnthrough, and coated on the outside around the liquid oxygen and helium tanks above the motor with the same foam Lockheed Martin uses to insulate the space shuttle external tanks it builds at Michoud.
Hybrid rockets that burn inert, non-toxic fuel with a liquid oxidizer may find new applications in the years ahead, following a hybrid sounding rocket experiment late last year that moved the technology beyond the realm of hobbyists and failed commercial ventures.

 The Oil We Eat (Harpers.org)
The nitrogen fertilizes artificially large blooms of algae that in growing suck all the oxygen from the water, a condition biologists call anoxia, which means “oxygen-depleted.” Here there’s no need to calculate long-term effects, because life in such places has no long term: everything dies immediately.
This explains why the Mississippi River, which drains the nation’s Corn Belt, is an environmental catastrophe.
There is a very narrow group of annuals, however, that grow in patches of a single species and store almost all of their income as seed, a tight bundle of carbohydrates easily exploited by seed eaters such as ourselves.

The "error catastrophe" theory of aging proposed that accumulating damage to synthesized proteins resulted in damage to the machinery of synthesis itself, leading to an escalating viscious circle of malfunctioning cellular components.
For biological systems, oxygen free radicals are the most important, in particular superoxide (

 Interview with William Irwin Thompson
The myth of St Michael the archangel, forcing the demons down into the underworld, is a description of the anaerobic catastrophe, where the new cyanobacteria who were breathing oxygen and creating the new atmosphere, forced the anaerobic bacteria down into the slime at the bottom of lakes.
Plato discusses this in the myth of Er at the end of the Republic which is one of the first descriptions of the death experience.
So, it seems that when we look at the myths of hominization and the emergence of humanity, there are some biological lessons about what happens when a species enters a new ecological niche like when our ancestors went from forests to savannah.
