Odds And Ends From All Over the Place

  • love the title:I Think We’re All Bozos on This Bus even though it has unfortunate connotations at this time, I love the idea of laughing at ourselves, but I guess it is better to do that at another time….

    “Where could the next Mega Tsunami come from?

    A volcano named Cumbre Vieja on the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands of North Africa is where geologists suspect the next tsunami could begin. The reason for the concern… In 1949 during a volcanic eruption part of the island slid into the ocean before ending its descent. Should another large eruption of the Cumbre Vieja occur, the western side of the island is likely to collapse into the Atlantic.

    Predicting the next eruption isn’t a likely happening; geologists cannot say whether or not the next eruption will be the one to make the island shed its western shore. Until then, we have to watch and wait.

    500 billion tons of rock creating five thousand trillion, (that’s fifteen zeros), joules of kinetic energy, that is transferred and converted to a 600 to a thousand meter tall wave with excessive speeds. Ten minutes and it will have traveled 250 kilometers, all the while powered by the underwater landslide.”

  • I realize people just love to conjecture that they have all the power and thus their bete noir politician du jour is the actual cause of major natural disasters…. but scientists sometimes other interesting ideas:
