Skip to comments.Strong earthquakes will bring severe destruction to Earth this year: Scientists Warn
Posted on 01/01/2018 7:45:30 AM PST by BenLurkin
Roger Bilham, a geophysicist at the University of Colorado, Boulder, informed that, in this year, the planet would face more powerful earthquakes and the magnitude level will be 7.0 or more. It can even reach 9.0. He stated that the number of earthquakes could reach up to 20 in 2018.
The published report says, when the planet will enter in to slow rotation period, that will decrease the centrifugal force and tighten the planets equator. After that, the tectonic plates will crush with each other. The force that will erupt from this event will start super earthquakes on Earth.
The earthquakes of a magnitude of 7.0 or higher will increase by 25-30%, and the earthquakes will strike the planet with a magnitude level of 9.0 and more. The planet earth already has been faced earthquakes with 7.0 magnitude, and it had done severe destruction. Now, it can assume that if several earthquakes with 9.0 magnitude strike the planet then what will be the consciousness. It can spread up to 250 km from its center point.
Talking about the areas which may affect by this, it has predicted that the western USA, southern Europe, the Middle East, South America will be affected more by this.
It hasnt been examined or tested in the lab or confirmed by any further studies. Many scientists have also informed that theyre not convinced by Bendicks and Bilhams research yet. Bilham presented the research report at the October meeting of the Geological Society of America, and after that, it has fetched a lot of attention.
Several scientists have noted that earthquake clusters and fluctuations of Earths rotation might happen at the same time, but it is not proving that they are linked to each other.

Liberal academia trolling for more grant money....
He believes in global warming too, right?
Probably a good idea to be sitting down when this happens.
Also known as the 'Geophysicist full-employment act of 2018.'
Looks like we need to plant some rockets along the equator to speed up the earth’s rotation a mite. Wait. What will that do to hourly time? It seems like every time we come up with a fix for mother nature, we create another problem.
Hoping for many large ones in China. Near Yulin would be awesome.
And there will be wars and rumors of wars
I predict fires will burn houses, water will flood cities, wind will blow roofs off. Wheres my check?
More importantly, will this tightening around the equator also affect waistlines?
If centrifugal force is lessened, prepare yourself to gain 3-500 pounds on your bathroom scale. Eating all those diet concoctions won’t help this situation.
If Yulin gets trashed, where will China hold the Dog Meat Festival ?
“This new learning amazes me, Sir Bedevere. Explain again how sheep’s bladders may be employed to prevent earthquakes.”
Are these the same guys that discovered jellyfish are useful?
Of course he does. But he will blame earthquakes on fracking.
It must have been a slow day.
Slower rotation would also result in each day lasting 25-40 hours. That should result in a 120 hour work week! Great!
