Earthquakes and tsunamis. by Ken Dunn on 9 January 2012 9:24am
A mag 6.6 has gone off at the Santa Cruz islands to the north east of Australia.

Topic title changed on 15/5/14.

It has been downgraded to a 5.9 but has set off 4 other quakes in the region.

A mag 7.3 has gone off near northern Sumatera.

I wonder when all the tectonic plates stop moving what will the map of the world look like?

www.scotese.com/future.htm :

The Atlantic will widen, Africa will collide with Europe closing the Med. Sea, Australia will join Indonesia and California will slide up the coast to Alaska. That seems to be the forecast in a nutshell for the next 50 million years!

So, Ken, what happens to British Columbia (double the land mass of California) when California slides up the coast to Alaska? And do we get to harvest the wood first? Two pairs of chopsticks for every Asian will be our motto.

Or...we could make the pipeline to carry Alberta's oil out of wood.

Rumble, rumble.

When California slides past B.C., LT, just wave to the Americans!
Re: Earthquakes by Ken Dunn on 15 January 2012 4:42pm
Two, greater than mag. 6, have gone off at the South Shetland Islands near the southern tip of South America.

@Ken and @Pete

This is me Kevin and Sean waving at you as we pass by......due to "California sliding past B.C."

What a weird song Loretto. Then I saw the Southpark label and thought that explains it!
Re: Earthquakes by Loretto on 16 January 2012 7:00pm
It was a very funny episode of Southpark Ken where the Americans and Canadians let each know how they really feel, just very funny. We are getting tickets to see the broadway musical "The Book of Mormon" which was also done by the creators of Southpark. I'll let you know how it is.
