2018 has been a shaky year so far
« on: January 24, 2018, 03:17:01 PM »
We could see twice as many big earthquakes this year, scientists warn — because the equator has shrunk

 
Geologists predict the Earth could see about twice as many major earthquakes this year as in 2017.
   
That's because the world is turning a little slower than usual, prompting the equator to shrink slightly, they say.
   
 A skinnier equator makes the edges of tectonic plates squeeze together, so earthquakes are likely to happen faster.
