Do you see a day when the see will dry off?

I keep wondering, just as the seas came to be, it must come to its end some day-do you see a day when the seas and oceans will be no more? I look at the oil rich seas in Russia, they are steadily dying off due to human activities-will the seas die one day?

Eventually when the sun is later in its cycle and begins to expand its outer edge will get closer to earth & the seas along with all life will be boiled off. Eventually the sun will completely consume the earth & most of the inner solar system before it burns out. Until that happens, no. We've just started another warming cycle of the earth. The earth has experienced many ice ages & hot times in its past. This has been one of the longest temperate climate times so far. Its due to end & the cycle continue.

We've got several million years before we really have to be concerned about this. Who knows where humanity will be by then?

To begin with, you are really very thoughtful about this and are starting to worry about the exhausted environment and its resources. I was also showing my deep concern to the seas, the oceans and especially the Antarctic Ocean where some government is trying to break the melting ice there for oil. You know, as the global warming is becoming more and more serious to us humans, we need to take care of the these oceans instead of destroying them... Thanks for your quality discussion, academic friend.

Thanks wlliamjisir, true we are exhausting our environment, the economic imperatives are driving man's thinking-they want wealth at all costs, yet they are so knowledgeable of the cause-effects of their actions, but they go ahead to destroy the environment anyway!
