Eight centimeters.

This night I have listened in the television a striking news related to the recent earthquake of 8.8 in Chile. Due to this big magnitude in Richter’s scale the axis of the Earth has moved 8 centimeters. I don’t know if the fact is very serious but I think that in long-term it can be serious.

What do you think about this?

    I don’t know much about geology but I think that these earth move can be terrible…Chile is a country with a big seismic activity!!

  2. It is amazing that the Earth has been moved 8 centimeters by an earthquake. I think that it would be very serious if it will be demostrate. It will change the environment.

    I beliave this may be serious.
    Although this fact has happened, I think we still haven’t realized the damage we are causing to the Earth.
    When we want to repair it may be too late.
