In June 2010, a sinkhole, estimated to be 60 feet wide and 300 feet deep, appears overnight at Guatemala city. Sinkholes cause thousands if not millions of dollars in damage each year to urban development and infrastructure. What is the exact science behind these hell...
Causes of earthquakes
By: Kris Abramovic
Earthquakes occur everywhere around the world and they cannot be stopped. Caused by convection currents in the mantle, both phenomena’s cause seismic activity. This essay is about these two disasters and their effect on the global environment. Also, this paper will dictate whether or...
Crack in the world: Geomagnetic pole shift triggering massive superquakes
By: Terrence Aym
Like the conductor of some mad orchestra, the twisting magnetic field is creating a perfect harmony of catastrophe, death and destruction. As massive earthquakes rip the earth's crust, destroy cities and kill many thousands, scientists that have warned of the relationship between the ongoing magnetic...
Magnetic monster: Geomagnetic field reveals increasing danger of 'continent killing' quakes

Russian geophysicist Pogrebnikov concurs with his colleagues at Harvard and Stanford: the earth may be in for a hell of a time.Imagine events just short of doomsday and you'll have a small glimpse of the global catastrophes that may lie just ahead.Some scientists...
Geologist: Alarming magnetic field changes signal major quake for West Coast
By: Terrence Aym
A former United States Geological Survey scientist says a major quake on the West Coast is imminent.Jim Berkland predicts earthquakes…accurately.Never heard of him? Perhaps you should—especially if you live on or near the West Coast of the United States, or know...
Geophysicists: Quartz key to predicting quakes
By: Terrence Aym
A new study claims evidence that the mineral quartz may hold the key to earthquake prediction.The science of predicting earthquakes has not made much headway for more than a century. Barring the successful predictions of geologist Jim Berkland—he has an 80 percent success...

Scientific research suggests the Earth's changing magnetic field may cause otherwise peaceful animals to become enraged killers banding together in voracious indiscriminate attacks and killing both terrified humans and each other. Rise of the 'zombie' animals? Imagine for a moment a scene from Alfred Hitchcock's...
