Earthquakes

Alarming Increase of Earthquakes and Volcanoes

‘Irreversible climate change due to carbon dioxide emissions’ is a paper written by Solomon, Plattner, Knutti, & Friedlingstein, 2009 [1]. It shows that current climate change taking place due to increase in carbon dioxide concentration is largely irreversible for 1,000 years after emissions stop. Climate Change does not justify the alarming increase in the number of Earthquakes all over the planet. As the frequency of Earthquakes, tectonic disturbances and oceanic volcanoes is plotted over the past forty years, we find that the frequency of Earthquakes, above 6 Richter, has raised close to double starting 1994. Some scientists are blaming the reversal of the magnetic poles. However, the question still remains; why are the magnetic poles reversing?  Or why are they moving at all? Could the collapse of the magnetic field results in climate change and be also related to the alarming increase in frequency of Earthquakes?

Many are predicting that a cataclysmic event has either been avoided or is being initiated. The same is happening in Western and North western America, where more than 600 small Earthquakes have been registered in 2005. According to scientists, hot spots such as Sumatra, Yellowstone, and some others are showing signs of extreme disturbance and harmonic tremors. It is now confirmed that we have a higher frequency of occurrence of powerful hurricanes and floods. Could all of these incidents be linked through a single chain of cause and effect? What could that be? I shall explore it over the following pages.
