The whole world is sinking from the pressure created by mining, water pumping, oil pumping and weight redistribution caused by buildings concentrated in a the cities. So the scientists thinks those things are small and are negligible?

Most Libs are in California anyway. They deserve to suffer for destroying America and being stupid.

Stupidest on your greed blurred mind maybe. You just don't realize how many tanker loads of oil has been taken from the grounds. One tanker is like a big cavern and multiply that many times over. Ask anyone with high IQ like the columnist on a newspaper I remember her name now it's Marilyn.

if only you understood how stupid your statement is...
the oil doesn't sit in pockets. it is inside porous rock. were there oil wells right under that development? why isn't the ground sinking under all the oil wells we do have? how bout everycity pumping billions of gallons of water out of aquifers? are they all sinking?
you need to think then post, if that is possible for you...it would not seem so from listening to you, so just forgo both of them, please...8444

You don't understand anything about stress, it takes time to develop and fail. The effect of weight transfer need not occur on the same area where the displacements took place. You are obviously a thinker of the wrong kind. You can't even imagine how big the volume of stuff pumped off the grounds.

in fact I do understand the volume.

so again, why haven't all the aquifers we have been pumping out of long, long before oil collapsed yet?

you theory has holes big enough to sail a tanker ship through...

I agree, with the current trend of mass migration into the worlds urban centers, the Earth will become out of balance and start to vibrate (like the tires on your car). In less than a decade simple tasks like landing an airplane or even walking will become impossible.

Oh so you expect things to happen when you think it? LOL! It's like volcanoes they may or may not explode in years but the energies are there that may be subject to relief or increase tensions, just simple knowledge and common sense. Are you sure you haven't got any special interest and you are on the defensive mode?

so they were pumping oil from under these houses? when?

how 'bout the water issue? we've been pumping that out of the ground for millenium and there haven't been cities collapsing all over, have there?

why can you not answer these simple questions that show your silly theory to be nuts?

do you understand that if every single human were gathered in one spot as tight as they could get,t he effect on the earths rotation would not be noticealbe outside of the most sensititive insturments?

you idea of the earths size and weight is ridiculous...
it is sad that people in this day and age know so little about their own world...
