  • The Exploring Of Earth : The Earthquakes Of The Earth

    865 Words  | 4 Pages

    Earth’s crust. Earthquakes occur because the tension gets released from inside the crust of the earth. Tectonic plates move alongside and past each other but they do not always move smoothly and when they get stuck it causes an earthquake because the pressure builds up then the pressure is finally released (see source 1). This movement from the plates forces waves of energy to come to the surface of the Earth. Plates can also converge into each other, this is when two plates collide and one goes beneath

    The big question for all of us to answer is “Why is deforestation still happening each and every day if is destroying the Earth?”. Deforestation tends to only benefit humankind, and seems to forget about the negative consequences to the environment. Instead of thinking about the future and how our actions have consequences, humans seem to only be thinking about their pocketbooks. For example, farming is one of the main reasons for deforestation. Three hundred million farmers use the slash and

  • The Earth Is A System Response To The Climate Of The Earth

    868 Words  | 4 Pages

    The climate of our planet is a system response to the geography, biosphere, anthropogenic activities and occasional/cyclic geological/astronomical events. Owing to the gigantic nature of the system, the Earth has a slow response time and manifests differently in different parts of the world. And the spatial and temporal changes are miniscule, making it difficult to comprehend the severity for an ‘uniniated’ person, since these changes can be easily lost in the noise of interannual variability. In

  • Realms of Earth

    Material: Realms of the Earth Astro-physicists and scientists believe that there could be quite a few planets in the Universe similar to our planet Earth. There is also a probable chance that some form of life prevails and sustains in one of such planet. However, so far as we presently know, the Earth is the only planet which supports life which makes it a very unique planet. It is therefore imperative (very important and necessary) for us to understand the spheres of the Earth as the spheres play a

    moon’s atmosphere or magnetic field couldn’t block solar flares from bombarding them with x-ray and radio waves, thus frying their communication systems. Since they couldn’t communicate with Earth, they had no warnings. The Base also didn’t have any detectors. There were no contingencies for total disconnect from Earth. He suspected an X-class solar flare, the strongest type, had occurred, catapulting one billion ton of coronal mass ejection and high-energy protons their way, with energies over one hundred

    As humans, why do, we feel the need to destroy everything that we see? Why is it that if it does not make us more money than it is not worth it? The Earth, the only planet in our little solar system to contain intelligent life and the only use we can find with that intelligence is to destroy one another and the planet we live on. Ever since the beginning of time humans have only cared about themselves and now that greed is destroying our planet. The pollution of this planet is astronomical, rivers

  • The Discovery Of The Earth

    1483 Words  | 6 Pages

    We started on Earth, a small planet, really, in a small galaxy that no-one had ever heard of before. Then, when the Earth died, humans moved away. Some boarded the space-carriers bound for the colonies on Mars, others took the long-haul to another galaxy entirely, where a planet so similar to Earth had been found that they started calling it "New Earth." Both of those expeditions were apparently short-lived. Mars didn 't sustain life nearly as long as had been projected, and New Earth suffered a similar

    The Earth was hit more often than the Moon, however, because Earth is larger and has more gravity. This increased gravity also caused the impactors to be accelerated to higher velocities towards the Earth. That must have been a catastrophic time to be here. So many bombardments would have sterilized the planet. If life had appeared before this period, it would have been extinguished unless it found a way to retreat into niches where it could be protected from these global catastrophes. When some
