    Hey again, I was watching several shows which each were covering some natural disaster of some type and it's all showing to me from a lame-man term who is a few step back and can see Everyone veiws and isnt Bias to one or the other. And its looking like Valcano's Earthquakes Hurricane's and Flood's are all Well overdew in Catastrafic Conditions and there is a very good possibility One could cause many of them to all go off at one time, mega-valcano's cause from mega earthquakes that also cause megasunami's which flood alot of stuff. Is anyone else seeing this and wondering if something like this could happen,

    Could this happen?
    Could all this be just part of the Natural Earth Cycle and theres really nothing we can do to stop or SPEED it up for that matter, its just a roller coaster ride and were all on it?

    Well, yes, many potentially mega-disastrous events are overdue- e.g. Yellowstone Major Caldera Eruption (overdue by 10 000 years) and a wide spread deadly pandemic.

    However, hurricanes can't be overdue persay. They happen every year between June and November (Hurricane Season), and can only occur if the sea surface temperature at that location is 28.5C or over. Of course, a certainty quantity of hurricanes may be overdue at a point during the hurricane season for some reason- too low sea surface temp.

    As for floods- we are witnessing a rather disastrous flood at this point in time, in Pakistan. Add together the fatalites of the Boxing Day Tsunami, the Haiti Earthquake and the Chilean Earthquake, and the number of people who you get is only ~1/2 of the number of people affected by the floods in pakistan.

    Another disasters that come to mind- asteroid impact. An asteroid impact like the one 65 million years ago (Chicxulub Event) only happens on average once every million years. So, statistically, we should face an impact of that scale in 35 million years time- we'll (humanity) most likely all be dead by then anyway.

    It's not bad, but it is unscientific, prejudiced and mistaken.

    You noted that you learnt of these potential disasters from documentaries. I would like you to think about this: which documentary will more people watch?

    "Scientists announce eruption of mega volcano is thousands, probably tens of thousands of years away and will have no long term impact on humanity."

    "Scientists declare mega volcano could erupt any day and destroy humanity."

    I think more people would watch the one about thousands of years to come, Because if it were true not only the Documentry would be in the news or on the air, and more people would be doing the last goodbyes and doing of Bucket list things before the next few dyas goes by, as apposed to if we have thousands of years there still plenty of time to find alternate planets alter the Cataclysm by moving people arund to avoid bigger losses, Develope stuff, heck look what weve done in the last 50yrs compared to the 50 before that, in 50yrs from now were gonna be so far ahead of now, the things you can image now will be the Norm in 1000yrs. So thats a pretty easy question.

    But Ok back to the Thread, What if we were Impacted by a terestrial object, Could the impact on the earth's crust that hard cause the Earthquakes of all faults globaly and the Valcano's globaly Not to mention depending on impact water or earthly the size of the Tsunami that will be generated from a earth pounding of that size.????

    TY again
