It had to happen: global warming causes big earthquakes

Study: Seismic Activity 5 Times More Energetic Than 20 Years Ago Because Of Global Warming

New research compiled by Australian scientist Dr. Tom Chalko shows that global seismic activity on Earth is now five times more energetic than it was just 20 years ago.

The research proves that destructive ability of earthquakes on Earth increases alarmingly fast and that this trend is set to continue, unless the problem of “global warming” is comprehensively and urgently addressed.

The analysis of more than 386,000 earthquakes between 1973 and 2007 recorded on the US Geological Survey database proved that the global annual energy of earthquakes on Earth began increasing very fast since 1990.

Dr. Chalko said that global seismic activity was increasing faster than any other global warming indicator on Earth and that this increase is extremely alarming.

“The most serious environmental danger we face on Earth may not be climate change, but rapidly and systematically increasing seismic, tectonic and volcanic activity,” said Dr. Chalko.

“Increase in the annual energy of earthquakes is the strongest symptom yet of planetary overheating.

Is there anything anthropogenic global warming can’t do? Clearly, if this keeps up, the Earth is doomed. Our only hope before the planet explodes is for our top scientist to put his infant son in a rocket and fire him into space, thus jump-starting the comic-book industry in Alpha Centauri.
