There are many earthquakes these days. Volcano Etna has erupted, the Phlegrean Fields are of great concern and Grindavik in Iceland is expected to erupt. System media cheekily claimed it was a result of climate change – exposing their lack of credibility. A slightly more plausible possibility is the gravitational force of the giant planets Jupiter and Uranus.
At least as far back as 1974, people still believed that the planets had a major influence on seismic events on Earth. At the time, scientists calculated a planetary parade for the year 1982 – all nine planets would stand in a line. This should cause a series of cataclysms on Earth. As is well known, the planet also escaped this horror. Apart from a magnitude 6 earthquake in Yemen, which killed 2,800 people, there were no particularly intense earthquakes that year. A rare earthquake of magnitude 4.8 struck Frankfurt, Marburg and Offenbach in Germany on June 28.
In any case, the scientists’ assumption is not entirely wrong. It has been proven that the rotation of the Sun in our solar system follows the gravitational forces of the planets. As they orbit, they exert a weak but noticeable pull on the Sun’s mass and “knead” it, so to speak. When certain conditions come together, solar activity can be especially strong. Solar activity is almost certainly more responsible for climate change on Earth (and other planets) than any CO2 mumbo-jumbo. See also: Man-made climate change? Our entire solar system appears to be warming and climate fanatics deny solar cycles allow 6-10 degree temperature changes.
In an unscientific, ideological fallacy, ORF recently reported that earthquake risk is linked to global warming. Melting glaciers will cause more earthquakes. “Volcanologist” Michelle Parks was allowed to make claims that ZIB1 was in – without any investigation or opposing opinion. Well, she earns her money by researching this claim.
It is perhaps somewhat more plausible that Earth also reacts to the gravitational forces of the largest planets in the Solar System. Jupiter is the supergiant planet of the solar system, its mass is 1.898×10^27 kg. Saturn, number two, is still a bit further away, but number three, Uranus, with a mass of 8.681×10^25 kg is currently virtually united with Jupiter. The gravitational forces of both planets are currently acting simultaneously on Earth. As the graphics below show, both planets have currently reached their closest point to Earth in their orbits.
We know from practice how the gravity of other celestial bodies affects the Earth through the tidal forces generated by the Moon. The ebb and flow are the result of this huge piece of rock revolving around the Earth. The Moon attracts the Earth’s water towards itself by about half a meter. This doesn’t seem like a dramatic amount – but compared to the total amount of water on Earth, this is a huge load that is being moved. Of course, this attraction affects not only water but the entire planet. The giant planets Jupiter and Uranus are far away – but due to the fact that gravity works infinitely far away in the universe, you can also feel a slight attraction to Earth from all the other planets in the solar system. By the way, we have not made this claim; It is state of the art. And, we find this fascinating: all objects in the universe are held together by the force of gravity.
The mass of Jupiter is 317 times greater than that of Earth. Uranus is the third most massive planet in the Solar System, with a mass 14.53 times that of Earth. Both masses exert influence on the Earth and can help influence the stresses in the Earth’s crust. The accumulation of earthquakes would be possible due to the interaction of gravitational forces. On average, the Moon’s gravitational pull on Earth is 43.81 times greater than that of Jupiter and 555 times greater than that of Uranus. Since the planets are currently closest to Earth in their orbits, gravitational forces are correspondingly greater.
There are currently many factors that influence earthquake activity. Earth’s magnetic field is also undergoing drastic changes at this time – many fear a pole shift is imminent. It’s up to you whether you want to believe man-made climate change is responsible for earthquakes – or whether there are important processes that cannot be affected by humans.
