I support the idea and agree with PM that Fragile Earth should have such things as ecosystems, flora and fauna - both in all its natural beauty and
the ones being threatened by anthropogenic interference.
Earthquakes and volcanic activity is way bigger than than any many other forums and even some combined. Earth processes are complex and constantanly
in a state of flux so to speak. It is one of the few subjects on ATS which affect every thing on the planet (yes there are a few others....I said a
few so don't rip me about it), of which we have absolutely no control over.
As technical advances continue to be made, measuring instruments will become more sensitive and knowledge will increase. The people who contribute
tirelessly to these threads keep us informed and educated. Very rarely do you see any nit picking or bickering. Why? Because it is not a topic based
on opinion. Because sensationalism is not supported. Because those who regularly contribute keep it real.
Those of us who are interested in the topic yet have little knowledge or understanding of interpreting information about these earth processes are
very fortunate to have these wonderful people to guide us.
Anyway.... why have a forum on US political madness for example? Why not world political madness? Why does the US government get their own forum?
Bottom line, there are too many forums based on heresay and opinion. It needs to be more balanced.
