I agree especially since there is no unknown planet that can have an orbit that enters the orbits of the known planets.

There are several problems.
1. people building in flood plains
2. human population simply increasing in size
3. people made flood plains

The latter is due to the construction of buildings and roads leading to large runoffs. It is the construction of bridges and other objects that constrict runoff locations such as rivers. It is deforestation or other land use practices that prevent the ground from absorbing water.

Yeah, did you miss the sermon or something? The Church of NASA, in their infinite God-given wisdom, decided we have 8 planets, and everything else is a planetoid or a protoplanet, basically nothing to even bother with or be concerned about. We got 8 planets, that`s it. No reason to search for any extra planets that may be out there because you will not be credited for discovering a new planet. So why waste your time searching for icy rocks when we have telescopes that can discover galaxies and other more interesting things? Who cares if Nibiru comes along out of nowhere? No I`m just kidding but I`m one of those who got ticked off when Pluto`s status was reclassified (downgraded). Who cares if there`s a larger than pluto object out there? It can be a planet too. And who cares if pluto would grow a cometlike tail if it were in earth`s orbit? THE FACT IS, That will never happen. The sun will go nova before that would come to pass and who says a planet has to be made out of certain materials? Pluto is ice & rock mostly and it stays solid in it`s orbital distance from the sun. Sure, when it actually has an atmosphere (its orbit, like ours, brings it closer to the sun at some points, creating an atmosphere at these times which goes away when it gets further away from the sun ) some of the material evaporates off, but it doesn`t seem to be goin anywhere anytime soon. And it may have an erratic orbit that crosses the orbit of another planet, but imagine the same thing happened between venus & murcury, would that effect their status as a planet? What if Saturn had a verticle orbit? Would it then be in danger of having it`s planetary status revoked? No, I don`t think so.

The planetary status was revoke in part because Pluto is so tiny. It is 17% the mass of our moon. The moon is 1.2% the mass of the earth.

Pluto is only .2% of the mass of the Earth. It's really small.

This thread no longer seems to have any relation to its title.

Just sayin', it's pretty random. Thought this was a thread about flash floods not Planet X.
