Climate change: even the earth under our feet
We are depressingly familiar with the impact of climate change on weather and sea levels but how about the very earth under our feet, the hard bits that make up the crust of the planet and scientists call the lithosphere.

Climate related geological events also have less direct impacts on human activity. Reduced ice thickness over volcanoes in Iceland could well lead (is leading?) to increased activity
There is no clear and certain picture about how climate change will impact on the not so solid ground beneath our feet. In some areas glacial melting could reduce volcanic activity and rising sea levels could stabilise rather than destabilise has hydrates. But we mess with the world at our peril and, just as we are already seeing with the atmosphere, global warming is likely to bring more geological hazards than benefits. We have even more reasons to limit climate change and prepare for an uncertain future.
Well is it or not? They really don't know.

Well-prepared, except for the editing mistake(s), the piece is eye-popping:

That's why the research goes on despite the whining deniers.

Considering that extreme rain storms dumping billions of tons of short-term rain on tectonic plates have caused earthquakes, get ready for more shaking than Elvis & the Beattles started up.

Bold response from the spaced out spacedoutblues that stays dazed and confused. You made another ASSumption of your---self again. The quote above was your cut and paste scientific science fiction you vehemently defend. See you are the COMMANDER TROLL. Take it the position fits you well.

And you think topix doesnt know what you publish? Attacks on me won't delete or erase what you are and what you do. You should stop making an ASSumption of your---self before you know the facts. Do contact topix to satisfy your accusations of the reprint BS your posting of what I said. You are a dumbASSumption of your---self again.
