Why No One is Freaking Out About the Looming Massive Earthquake Threat in the Pacific Northwest

“When it comes again, the earthquake will be magnitude 8.0 or higher, which means the ground will warp and shudder for at least two minutes. That would be considered “the Big One.” However, it’s possible for the entire Cascadia Zone to rupture, turning this earthquake into a disaster movie-level catastrophe.” by Manasee Wagh via Popular Mechanics For many people, natural … Continue reading

Earth’s Interior is Cooling Faster than Expected

“Our results could give us a new perspective on the evolution of the Earth’s dynamics.

Earth Is Dimming – It’s Due to Climate Change

Warming oceans cause fewer bright clouds to reflect sunlight into space, admitting even more energy into earth’s climate system. Warming ocean waters have caused a drop in the brightness of the Earth, according to a new study. Researchers used decades of measurements of earthshine — the light reflected from Earth that illuminates the surface of the Moon — as well … Continue reading
