The motion, formation, and recycling of Earth’s crust—commonly known as plate tectonics—have long been thought to be continuous processes. But new research by geophysicists suggests that plate tectonic motions have occasionally stopped in Earth’s geologic history, and may do so again. The findings could reshape our understanding of the history and evolution of the Earth’s crust and continents.

I say that without knowing a thing about it.
Interesting stuff none the less.

Im kinda afraid of it happening because it would mean a cool down in the core of the earth and then the whole earth would cool down ye sure theyre would be no more earthquakes but if it did happen theyre may be no more humans.

Thats an interesting theory.
The oil is under so much pressure surely its supporting something?
And if we take it out this would cause some disturbance.
Maybe some of the big earthquakes have been caused by mining and oil and gas extraction.
