Also talking about vents from around the world reading about the devastation caused was almost traumatizing In fact for researching this book she undertook uite some travels down mine shafts and on Mississippi river steam boats and it was uite interesting seeing all those places through her The Lady in Pink eyesShe talks about development measures causingarthuakes as well as actions we ve undertaken as disaster prevention and tells of how wholly unprepared most of us truly are Why Because while we have the science or less we don t want to spend the big bucks or at least most don t There are countries such as Japan who have higher construction standards than say the US However that alone is not Eyes enough If you look at hurricane Katrina and how long it took FEMA to get water to people in need you can imagine what would happen during a really badarthuake And several big ones are ueued up if we look at how regularly they occurThe interesting thing for me while reading this book was to see how many arthuakes were anthropogenic And not just from fracking but also from digging mines and disposing of waste water though can you really talk of disposing if all you do is pump it into the groundThere were a few xamples I hadn t heard before and the little Sinner's Heart excursion into the hoover Dam important because of the water masses it holds of course was funny in a tragic way Just like a few pop culture references Because we seem to be almost unnaturally interested in disaster when it comes to movies watchingven the trashiest yes I include myself here but we re not prepared to change our lifestyle or spend money on preparing or ven preventing such disasters on a large scale Weird isn t it Now as I mentioned in the beginning one arthuake was mentioned that I personally Spirit of the Wolf experienced I need to do a little digging later but I think there was actually anrror here in the book The author talked about the 20062007 Basel A Vineyard Christmas earthuake having been a 34 on the Richter scale but we were told it was a 43 maybe a case of transposed digits But there was another before that In 2004 there was one of a 54 magnitude that originated in the same area though slightly north of the city of Basel I was still in school back then it was the holidays and I was sick in bed watching a movie when the ground started shaking I had never personallyxperienced an Een Bijzondere Vorm Van Osteosclerose earthuake before but I knew what to do because my mother had told me My stepfather on the other hand didverything wrong also because he didn t think it couldwould be an arthuake Nothing happened nobody was injured in our case our house very old and therefore sturdy structure also sustaining no outward damages and no inward ones as far as I know But that might also be because we are about 120km away from the picenter Nevertheless the uake lasted for about 30 seconds and was uite disconcerting The reason for the arthuake Human *Stupidity And Greed They Had Been Using Geothermal Methods To *and greed They had been using geothermal methods to the Gotthard tunnel and the deep heat mining project There had been studies forecasting xactly this outcome but the responsible parties didn t care until it was too late There were several Hot Shot (North Ridge Book 3) earthuakes over the course of 2 3 years in total but the one in 20062007 stopped the projects as people had hadnoughTo read what people have gone through in the US and for how long they ve accepted the status uo almost unbelievableAnyway a very interesting Topic With Real Life with real life Math Basics 6 especially in the coming years Even if the supervolcano under Yellowstone doesn trupt yet there are plenty of other scenarios with and without volcanoes that could wreak havoc and I hope that the right people will smarten up and start investing in the right stuff Besides it WILL Voyage to the Underworld (Star Wars Missions, eruptventually there is nothing we can do about it ignoring the danger isn t gonna make it go awayThe book was written well with a few drier passages along the way but also some almost funny moments I love natural disasters and movies about them particularly if they star Dwayne Johnson They make for fascinating reading and watching material in fiction and nonfiction I also live directly over the New Madrid fault line aka that mean mother of a fault that made the Mississippi flow backwards in the 1800sSo I may as well read a book about The First Ghost earthuakes know thinenemy and all This is clearly and ngagingly written accessible to anyone It s very light on the terminology and tells plenty of personal stories so there s no need to be afraid of it if science isn t usually your cup of teaI ve been interested in arthuakes for as long as I can remember I xperienced my first one in 1980 and have been through a few since can remember I xperienced my first one in 1980 and have been through a few since A couple in Ohio one in Napa valley and one arlier this year in New Hampshire They ve all been very minor of a gee that was neat xperience than anything terrifying But I ve seen the devastation they can cause around the world Two sizable uakes hit Mexico a couple weeks ago and the footage from them was dramatic One building just disintegrated literally falling to pieces within minutes So knowing abut Humanism earthuakes is goodBut since I ve been following this for so long there isn t a lot of new information here for me I d say about 95% is stuff I ve alre.
