The Day The Earth Moved

Zac Rusagara

If you haven’t heard about the earth quake that has hit Japan today then it’s probably a good thing you are reading this Blog post! This 2011 Honshu earthquake caused tsunamis that measured up to 10meter in height, and that have completely desecrated most of Japans East coast. 

 

Today’s Blog however looks at just how powerful this earthquake has been.  Measuring 8.9 on the Richter scale, this is the most powerful earthquake in Japan’s history, and it is this earthquake that has literally shifted the Earth by 25cm!

 

The earthquake was so powerful that it shifted parts of Japans coast line by 2.4meters. Furthermore, since it has shifted the Earths Axis- the point on which the Earth spins on in order to give us day and night- now means that there will be a global effect on the change of seasons and we could possibly be losing up to 1.8microseconds in a 24 hour day. 

 

Combined with Global warming that we are already trying to get a hold on, could this be the even that will spur us to really start not only being environmentally aware, but to start being participants. Do you think we can heal our planet from the damage we have caused it over the last Century?

Boys love timing their pitches, really like this prouct. I bought the Bose MIE2i headphones to go with my new iPhone 4s. I can't really describe how much I love this thing. I will start off by saying that I had to return my copy to Amazon, because it kept freezing the PS3. Omega 3 Pills How Much Omega 3 Contain Vitamin D
I'll probably end up selling this one to get another prime, probably the 24mm or an 85mm. I have been buy this product for the last 2 or 3 years, and it last me about 6 month to a year. works ok Customer service hours and service sucks. Granted, I've never used a $400 grinder, but I would say that this grinder is the exception. He, however, initiated some of our encounters although I was more pro-active, so to speak. After using it for a few months and multiple trips to the range I will say it holds it zero perfectly. Omega 3 Hp Commercial Blender
