What would cause and what would happen if.....
There is an earthquake measuring 12 on the Richter scale in San Fransico?
If it ever where possible land would move hundreds of feet and there would be absolutely no standing man made fetures in the vicinity...
Yellowstone or Toba volcanos were to erupt?
It’s speculated that the Earth would possibly go into a nuclear winter type scenario for a year or two.
There were multiple 9.0 undersea earthquakes at the same time?
Where? If they where a few thousand miles away from each other then they would create tsunamis. Like the recent one that had a tsunami hit from India,
to Africa it would stop when it reached landmass and the others tsunami would do the same.
Scientist now believe that deep in the Earth that geological things are connected, it would probably be 1 large earthquake rather then two if they are
on the same fault.
All of the volcanos in the ring of fire were to erupt?
The same as if 1 big one where to erupt…
Do not that the Earths core is cooling and geological activity is decreasing…
We will be like Mars in a few million/hundred million years from now. Mars was smaller so it lost its interior heat faster. We are going through what
Mars did a billion or so years back…
