team of US scientists have identified climate change and ice sheet melt
as the likely causes of several massive 7 to 7.5-magnitude quakes that
occurred in 1811 and 1812 along the New Madrid fault in the middle of
the North American continent in an area not typically prone to quake
After studying the fault for a decade, the researchers
found no evidence of growing pressure that might have ordinarily
predicted a future quake. They instead concluded that the pressure was
likely built through a geologic event such as the uplift of the Rocky
Mountains. Then, at the end of the last Ice Age, when melting sheets
flowed down the Mississippi River, the additional water flow washed vast
amounts of sediment away, relieving pressure that had been weighing
down on the Earth’s crust. This would create conditions for the fault to
move, thus releasing the stored pressure and creating the quakes that
occurred at that time.
Professor Eric Calais of University of
Purdue stated, “We understand why earthquakes happen at the contact
between tectonic plates, like in California, but it has always been a
puzzle as to why earthquakes occur in the middle of the continent as
well, and with no visible surface deformation.
Our theory links
an external climate-driven process, the melting of the ice sheet, and
earthquakes.”Thank you Professor Calais and colleagues for helping us to
understand more about the link between global warming and disruptions
May we heed this research and act to avoid
future disasters by restoring the balance in our ecosphere. During an
October 2009 videoconference in Indonesia, Supreme Master Ching Hai
addressed similar scientific findings regarding temblors in a warming
world, and suggested a holistic way to re-stabilize the planet.
Supreme Master Ching Hai: Scientists
have discovered that earthquakes are linked to global warming. Because,
as the ice melts at the poles - you know North and South poles –
beneath Greenland, pressure shifts on the Earth's plates that could
trigger movement to cause earthquakes.http://x-journals.com/2010/new-theory-links-climate-process-the-melting-of-the-ice-sheet-and-mid-continent-earthquakes/http://www.purdue.edu/newsroom/research/2010/100730CalaisNewMadrid.html
So, we create the
atmosphere we live in. If everyone creates the harmonious atmosphere,
our planet will be in peace This will also help protect us.
also, we should pray to Heavens, to the great mercy of Allah, and the
angels, to all divine beings, to help awaken humankind – awaken us so
that we understand right from wrong. We understand that we must walk the
way of God’s children.
So, please help us, help your loved ones and those around you, to all be veg, and do good deeds.
