The reason I ask is because I feel it is needed. For one thing, I believe certain people at ATS have specialized in this, and have become quite adept
in discussing these topics. I think the Fragile Earth forum is too general, covering way too many broad topics.
The other reason is I believe then the right people could be appointed subject matter experts, such as PuterMan, At current, he gets nowhere near the
credit he really deserves for his contributions. And the current SME are not capable of discussing Earthquakes and Volcanoes to the technical depth
that PuterMan and others can at this point.
ATS is evolving, and this has become a big enough subset interest that it is time to consider giving the people who have become very knowledgeable in
this a place of their own, with the correct people leading it. And yeah, I'd also volunteer, as I feel I have gained the necessary knowledge as well
to help lead this forum and give credit where it is due impartially.
That may sound self-serving- but it isn't. I don't really care about the leader part. I want a separate forum for this- it is time!
