Scientists Find Link Between Global Warming and Earthquakes


Its possible that global warming not only effects weather patterns around the world but also has an effect on the large crustal plates that causes contents to drift and that forms mountain ranges and causes earthquakes.This article it talks about how the changing climates (caused by global warming) on the surface will effect the plates in such a way that could intensify both earthquakes and tsunami's. Also, there are quotes from different scientist and what they thing about it. The research is still in its early stages but more research should be conducted.
This picture shows the moventment of tectonic plates throughout the world. The movement causes earthquakes which may be caused by global warming.
