‘True polar wander’ and Earth’s ice ages

‘True polar wander’ and Earth’s ice ages Rice University geophysicists have determined Earth shifted relative to its spin axis within the past 12 million years, which caused Greenland to move far enough toward the north pole to kick off the ice age that began about 3.2 million years ago. The study is based…… Read more…

Asteroid to Buzz Earth This Weekend — 16,700 Miles Over Indonesia

Asteroid to Buzz Earth This Weekend — 16,700 Miles Over Indonesia We now know the connection between Indonesia Volcanos and EQ and Hawaii. And we know from stock research that small fast moving objects “create” large Earthquakes with far more effect than can be attributed to any gravitation component, at least any direct link.   This…

Earth eats its own oceans making earthquakes more likely

Earth eats its own oceans making earthquakes more likely As Earth’s tectonic plates dive beneath one another, they drag three times as much water into the planet’s interior as previously thought. Water beneath the surface of the Earth can contribute to the development of magma and can lubricate faults, making earthquakes more likely. Using the natural…
