    Default 'Ring of Fire' volcanos remind Asia of seismic peril


    It's a trend for the past two months at least. Volcanic activities (from the newsanyway) that began in Indonesia, then Vanuatu, and now an eruption in Japan.

    Plus the Mexico earthquake ( that is part of the Pacific Plate)

    Is it Possible for Global Warming , Current Weather Pattern (Increasing Intensity of Hurricanes), have any correlation to these Seismic Activities?

    Is the overheating contributing to these movements?

    The weather has no effect on tectonic plates. Tectonic planes by way of volcanoes and the movements of landmass do affect the weather.

    Yes, in some ways. Global Heating could make earthquakes worse. If glaciers melts, the load carried by the earth's crust is released making it to bounce back triggering movements of the plates.

    makes sense kay mas bug-at man ang top layer sa earth kaysa second layer , any additional weight from the top can cause the plates to move.

    Also, taking away some weight , in this case the weight of the ice from the top would cause the same. You know global warming, antarctic and arctic are starting to melt.
