Sorry to hear this the global climate change is causing havoc everywhere
I'm glad I was at home
I was watching some of the live feeds on CCTV…..very tragic……
is anyone going to point out to +Couper Ellis that climate change does not cause earthquakes?
My prayers are with each and everyone in China
Climate change? I think it has more to do with plate techtonics. +Couper Ellis
earth is shaken!
If that car was smart enough it would of drove away haha
Sorry for those who affected
ayyyy çok kötü olmuşşşş
+denners way no, I'd rather not be ill…
+denners way you have nerve to post this in such grief… Heartless schwanzlutscher..
+Douglas Blight +Arthur D I deleted the comment.
+Guy Kawasaki thanks.
+denners way I know that you mean wellBut THAT is not the way Google+ works.It is:"I 'll add youAnd if you associate with my interests so that we have something to learn from each other, then you may eventually add me, too"This is not FaceBookYou control your G+You take the initiative…if nothing happens: you are simply doing it wrong.You are welcome. Add people, share stuff. The rest will happen automatically.
Go back to school +Couper Ellis climate change has nothing to do with plate tectonics.
Couper Ellis, climate change does not link to climate change. Climate change mainly a natural cycle tied to the sun spot cycle with a tiny influence of mankind.
cool . gotta love the power of heavy object versus light object
I remember experiencing the landers earthquake in california It was a 6.7 or something like that but there was some really cool stuff going on with aftershocks , I went for a walk out in the surrounding desert and when the aftershock came you could see the desert sands moving like waves in the ocean . and the telephone poles were swaying back and forth . It was so strong it shook me out bed .
No… again.. Very sad. Scary that one moment you talk to a friend, loved one, one you care about and then just like that.. they are gone. So important to tell people how much they mean to you and say thankyou for even the smallest kindnesses. Good or bad, lessons learned. Important to say "I Love You", but mean it. Show it. <3 <3 O:-)
Well put. I was asked about the purpose of Google the other day. All I could text is what little I know. To share, learn, make friends across the planet and hopefully connect with those we can relate to. Learned so much about different people and no regrets from my mistakes. Mobile phones are more difficult because all is not laid out on one screen. This, one needs to dance quite a bit. Mahalo for bringing this to light, though off the main topic. Appreciated much!! O:-)
Disaster is really unpredictable
This happened on the 22nd and I'm just reading about it for the first time now?Oh, right. Everything here is all about Boston right now. >:-(
+Efa Leang not exactly
Wow ! Never seen anything like this
It is a little intriguing to see that around the same time Greenland's ice sheet is melting away a big (hey, 6.6, what do you know) quake occurred just aways offshore — which is where one would expect the melting ice went.
Maybe that is typical for the area?Nope. Not unless "record breaking" is the new synonym for "typical".http://green.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/21/greenlands-ice-quakes-may-set-a-record/
But, hey, if you have looked throughly into the subject… no problem.
+alan connelly Okay, but just be aware that researchers recently concluded that the temperature at the core of the Earth is likely about the same or actually hotter than the surface of the quite more distant Sun, making Earth's core much hotter than they previously expected.
As for the sunspot=>Earth-heating idea, Sun seems to have been steadily less heated the past 35 years during which time the Earth has contrarily become more heated.http://www.skepticalscience.com/solar-activity-sunspots-global-warming.htm
The time it takes for light energy to reach the Earth from the Sun is a matter of seconds.
While blaming the Sun might be convenient for some large scale terrestrial combustion industries, that convenience does not necessarily mean they are correct.
But hey, if you are looked carefully into it then I am not telling you anything you do not already know.
What information source do you have for your sunspot=globalwarming science, by the way — credible one or oft wrong one? Or do you take no chances and crunch the numbers yourself?
