Which came first, the egg or the chicken?
As an analogy, the issue of climate change are directly linked to geological changes, as far as the egg is associated with the chicken, and nobody knows who gives birth to another, or who came first.
The fact is that there is no chicken without egg, and there is no egg without chicken , remains unanswered and the mystery of who came first: the egg or the chicken?
Studying the Earth's geological past, it is clear, easy to see that the periods of climate change are always associated with geological changes.
The climatic and geological cauldron of our past, define the conditions for the emergence of life, and determined, at different times, the extinction of various species.
The eruption of volcanoes, collisions with the Earth, formation of violent storms, tsunamis, earthquakes, acid rain, tectonic movement, geological fissures, gases in the atmosphere, advance and retreat of oceans, melting glaciers and training,
determine the geographical conformation of the planet Earth, and the geographical conformation of the Earth climate change, in a domino effect.
And not just on planet Earth, in all known cosmic vastness, geological conditions are determined by climate, or vice versa, the climate determines the geological conformation.
Violent or mild climate, high temperatures or in decline, are always directly related to hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes, ice ages or warming of our planet Earth, a process of cause and effect.
Planet Earth, in its origin and has undergone major transformations colossal geological linked to the climate prevailing in each period.
Scientists today are losing the ability to associate natural phenomena in their real dimensions, for reasons of global economy, political pressures, lack of financial and technical resources, simple lack of centralized reporting, makes this association is not made inevitable: geological and climatic changes.
We are in one of many periods of extreme climate changes, which, of course, are related to geological changes: ocean temperatures, oxidation of ocean waters, direction and strength of winds, hurricanes of rigorous, large amplitudes of earthquakes in areas different, revealing a large tectonic movement on Earth.
The rains caused by climate intense unsuspected cause erosion of slopes and displacements ...
The exploitation of natural resources, destruction of forests, changes in river courses, high concentration of gases in the atmosphere are related to climate, causing significant geological changes ...
The difference in our day and prior periods, is that today, a high concentration of humans in small urban areas, living in subhuman conditions in poorly constructed entirely unprotected and vulnerable in matters of health, transport, security, communication, work, etc ...
The current environmental disasters, in addition to geological changes that are already occurring, and greater still occur in a short space of time, would have tragic consequences for which we are not educated, mobilized, and much less prepared.
Maybe it's too late for any effective action, but we could minimize the damage in loss of life, but there are strong indications that human civilization remains indifferent to such issues vital to the survival of our species.
