Kyoto -----> Earthquakes
Advertisements [?]
Planet warms... glaciers melt, possibly increasing increasing Chandler's wobble... good thing the brainiac didn't see the wisdom in signing off on the Kyoto thingy. I bet this won't even dawn on the repugs, this administration, shrub, vice-pResident, none of them.
These eight graphs directly correlate and demonstrate that most major tectonic activity, including earthquakes, volcanism, El Nino, and global warming phenomenon are caused by the changing location of the poles as the Earth wobbles back and forth slightly in what is called Chandler's Wobble. The name for these correlations is called vortex tectonics.
For example, earthquake action picked up in places where the ice masses retreated some 10,000 years ago, Dr. Sauber notes. Scandinavia had major quakes back then. Canada also had many moderate quakes as its glaciers melted.

Melting glaciers do not cause earthquakes: Quakes are created when forces within the crust build up strain in rock until something slips. Alaska is seismically active because a North Pacific crustal plate is ramming into southern Alaska, creating pressures that must be relieved at some point.
