Skip to comments.Weight of water from global warming is causing and will cause large earthquakes!!

A friend of mine watches the History Channel, because that's true information. Apparently she's seen a program twice about how global warming is causing the ice to melt and the additional weight of the water is increasing the likelihood of earthquakes.
Danger, Will Robinson, danger!!!
Going from freezing to liquid changes the weight? Who knew?
What about the weight of the water when it was ice?
The solution to Globul Warming is an easy one: The Goberment should order everybody to turn around their AC in their windows - to make cold air be blown outside,in to the street. If enough people do that, the temps outside will go down. Obviously the AC should be as energy efficient as possible, and if you can’t afford an AC for this purpose the Government should provide you with a grant.
Fewer and fewer people are falling for this crap because they have real problems to worry about..
It is true. The weight of water behind China’s 3 gourges dam has already triggered a few earthquakes. Melting the ice caps in Greenland would certainly cause large earthquakes.
Nah - tell her the extra weight of the water keeps the tectonic plates from sliding so reduces earthquakes.
Oh, why bother...
WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!
“What about the weight of the water when it was ice?”
You aren’t allowed to question the logic of the Religion of Globo Warmin!
The History Channel is “true information”???
Everyone knows that a pound of water weighs more than a pound of ice. /s
She'll probably drown from the rising oceans.
We need that OMG!! OH NOES!! gif
The History Channel is losing credibility more every day.
Which is heavier, 100 trillion tons of water or 100 trillion tons of feathers? Oh, and I’ll have a latte with extra foam and X’d with chocolate.
It’s late and I am tired so I am just going to say it-your friend is an idiot, get rid of her. Well, I guess not if you enjoy laughing at people.
No, the inequitable redistribution of molten ice will cause planetary imbalance, like losing a balance weight off the tire of your car ... whop, whop, whop, whop. All the sloshing around will then unfairly inundate predominantly progressive coastal environments, with women and minorities hardest hit. The earthquakes will be secondary.
And what’s worse, those Palin snowbillies will get better weather and more land, so it’s clearly reactionary.
A fleet of seaborne windfarms with icemakers is the answer, but not within sight of any liberal enclave. Maybe they can be anchored off Alabama or something? Certainly nowhere near Massachussetts.
” - - - she’s seen a program twice about how global warming is causing the ice to melt and the additional weight of the water is increasing the likelihood of earthquakes.”
If you know the name of the episode, please post it on your thread. Junk scientists should be held accountable for unfounded rumors such as this one.
BTW, I’ll check back in a week or so, as it will take me that long to stop laughing. ROTFLMAO!
Direct her to the book by John Casey, “COLD SUN”.
She will calm down a lot if she will read it and also go stock up on blankets and firewood.
OMG! We’re all goin to die!!!!!!!
I bet all those earthquakes out west are caused by the construction of Hoover Dam and Lake Meade. Lake Meade being the 16th largest man-made lake in the world and the largest man- made lake in the Western Hemisphere.
But I wonder what caused the earthquakes before Hoover Dam was built. Hoover Dam was finished in 1936.
The Great San Francisco Earthquake was in 1906.
Aw, man. I used a little driveway melt this morning and mud huts were dropping all over central Africa. I sure hope they don’t sue me.
“The History Channel is losing credibility more every day.”
Since installing my new satellite dish, I have been watching
a lot of History, and Natl. Geo programs, but I never remember which one had what.
I do, however, notice that they inject AGW into most every
geological program, even if there is no logic behind it, such as earthquakes and tsunamis.
They have had some interesting programs on cataclysmic events in ancient history, all earthquake or volcanic in origin, but tend to morph AGW into the cause for similar events that could happen now.
I frequently want to hurl a brick at my TV when they pull this crap.
Thanks for a visual.
Yes, it’s frustrating and gets very, very old.
Oh no! The island of Guam is going to tilt!
Alaska, that's it. "I can see icemakers from my house," yep. Perfect! Those poor wolves will be safe from helicopters in the shelter of windmills and they'll be buried in ice as nature has always intended.
Balance restored, sea levels begin to fall and the world is safe for progressivity.
Yes ... I wonder if Meltzer doesn’t have some sort of an agenda ...
Danger, Will Robinson, danger!!!
To wit, ask 1,000 high school or college graduates which of the following is heaviest (or lightest):
a.) 1 lb. of feathers
b.) 1 lb. of bricks
c.) 1 lb. of gold
d.) 1 lb. of dog sh!t
e.) None. They are all equal in weight.
I guarantee you that more than 50% of the fools that believe in the phenomena of man-made “global warming” / “climate change” (or registered Democrats) would fail to pick “e”.
There you are America! The public schools and universities of the USA have successfully created millions of idiots. (And these are the idiots that vote “D”, which is why Obama, the DOJ and DNC are working so hard to void voter ID laws.
Only idiots, imbeciles, ignoramuses, jackasses and fools vote for Democrats.
I guess she believes those “ghost chaser” paranormal programs on the History channel as well?
There is no hope for global warming believers, they will swallow any lie!
It’s chicken little all over again! LITERALLY THE SKY IS FALLING!
Danny Glover said the last earthquake in Haiti was caused by global warming so it must be true.
Tell me why.
Yep, when sea ice melts the water level shoots up. That is why when you order a drink on the rocks, you must drink it quickly ;)
To #27; ‘picky, picky,picky!’
The 3 Gorges Dam in China is changing the earth’s behavior. If that bad boy blows, we’re talking major population reduction.
*laugh* I erased my reply on that, choosing C, and explaining it. :) Figured that I’d be a pain for pointing it out.
“Going from freezing to liquid changes the weight? Who knew?”
Well, the folks from History Channel obviously had the inside poop. It’s great they didn’t participate in the coverup.
Always we must remember that even the most concentrated efforts by man simply is barely registered by the vast engine that is our planet.
Nah, you should always point out disinformation, otherwise it gets to be a bigger pain later.
Deflation? Fluctuations in the gravitational constant caused by gold’s aura?
