Alfred Wegner Takes Continental Drift to the Next Level
"It was a really interesting guy. Born in eighteen eighty in germany got his degree in astronomy but became meteorologist which was still a rather new field at the time. His primary interest was in the northern polar regions. And how air circulated. He participated in four expeditions to greenland and was one of the first meteorologist to adopt the use of weather balloons. However meteorology and expeditions to greenland aren't what alfred wegener is best known for its for his contributions to geology and geophysics. The idea that he is remembered for began innocently enough on christmas day nineteen ten. He was at his friend's house when he began looking at his brand new world. Atlas he made the observation that south america and africa seemed like they fit together like pieces in a puzzle. I should that he was far from the first person to notice this once. Decent maps began being published. In the last part of the sixteenth century people. i observed the same thing. The first person we know of who made the observation was dutch. Cartographer abraham or telling us or telling us created the first modern atlas in fifteen seventy which means he was probably the first person to have the idea because no one before that really had a good grasp of the geography of the continent's william colby wrote in his book on geologic history. Quote abraham are telling us in his work to doris geographic suggested that the americas were torn away from europe and africa by earthquakes and floods and went on to say the vestiges of the rupture. Reveal themselves if someone brings forward a map of the world and considers carefully the coasts of the three continents and quote. Ortelius was far from alone after him. The idea that the continents fit together somehow kept popping up theater. Christoph lilienthal alexander von humboldt antonio snider pellegrini and alfred russel wallace all made the same observation one or two hundred years before moreover there were several other scientists just a decade before who came to a similar conclusion. In fact. there's a good chance that you probably made the same observation. One of the first times that you saw a world map they took the idea to another level however he began by cutting up maps and piecing the landmasses together like a puzzle. He was able to put the continents together into one giant continent that he named panja from the greek words for all and land.

"earthquake" Discussed on Sounds Good with Branden Harvey
"To provide advice for people on how to avoid falling objects. Keep them. don't forget there's the aftershocks. Here's some information about how you can help you heard in your area and your you could contact and then when we saw tropical storm grace coming activated that sms system again texting people because you can imagine an earthquake followed by a storm. It's just emergency on top of emergency so giving people information is is just one key. Stop after that. Our our next physician is let us find ways to bring in if there are universally needed supplies. We wanna bring those likliest. We've got three thousand kits with emergency supplies including tarps so laundry so diapers water purification tablets things that we know that everyone who is affected will need and then the next wave coming after that is emergency cash assistance and the idea brandon. Air is that people's needs are different. Which is such a basic n n seemingly obvious thing but someone may have lost a wheelchair and they need to replace it. someone may have lost livestock and that's their income and that's how they provide for their family and they'd rather son son money on that so we can get cash to people so quickly and that means that they can purchase what they need most urgently. So that's another huge sign of hope. That i see in the entire humanitarian community honestly because twenty years ago. That's not really the way that we did emergencies. We know as a sector humanitarian broaden goods and on an island nation. Like this what you're talking about as good getting stuck in the port. That's what's happening now. Most supplies come to haiti by by ship. Not by not by air so. The airports aren't really equipped to take in large supplies of goods. But that's what we need to do. Emergency when you thanks to be here fast. So when we check the local stores we make sure you know are are things available. Are things getting resupplied. Are the prices reasonable. What are the prices. How much money people need we can get people cash so that they can purchase what they need specifically and support the local economy. This is a revolution in the way that humanitarian aid is. Working dot is more dignified. It's more empowering and we know that local economies are the engine of a strong recovery so instead of undermining person who lives and works in haiti at makes arps or sells shoes. We are restoring.

"A local authorities that they were already in contact with because they were doing work here and said okay. Where do we go. Who can wayne. Who can we reach out to do. You know who's been hardest hit and it's the have been able to have those immediate conversations is what is going to put you on the right path to getting help to people maybe specialized expertise is needed. Certainly specialized equipment specialized search and rescue teams in those first early days and then in this stage of the response organizations like mercy corps having Having a way to procured bring in large amounts of supplies or being able to bring in additional experts but it all starts and needs to be continued to be led by the knowledge of the community. That's been affected. I think it's really encouraging to hear that there has been that volition. It's heartbreaking the that wasn't addressed back in twenty ten but the progress actually leaves me feeling a little bit more encouraged and and you spoke to this idea of of the beauty of of neighbors helping neighbors and people showing up and leading these locally led efforts and i'm curious where are you seeing signs of hope on the ground like what are the moments that are leaving. You feeling hopeful. In spite of the absolutely heartbreaking situation so i would say that the first the first nineteen sources of hope for me our team members. My colleagues are here. Seven in the until you know wheat way into the night People are working incredibly long hours and with the just tremendous levels of energy tremendous levels dedication. People are so solution oriented. So kind of thinking about Are this is the problem. Here's like three different ways. We could approach this problem. In addition the this neighbor-to-neighbor outreach. It is across the country of haiti. Of course the earthquake was felt importer. Prints that this earthquake did not affect order prints. It affected this rural area in the south and so we have people port-au-prince who are sending donations sending supplies family members are are reaching out to help family members and i think it's really important for people to know even down one. St not every houses affected equally. Earthquake is so random. It's so callous. In that way know one house night just crash another house may be levelled and so having having not community come together and having people support each other it is a huge sign of hope because those those helpers those like mr rogers helpers that you wanna look to. They're right next to you there beside you there. You and so. That's really inspiring. That's really inspiring. I love this and then tell me about like what bercy cores role is right. Now i know that you are focused in on the particular things that mercy chorus skilled at. What is that look like right now in. How might that change in the coming days and weeks and emergency response and i've been doing this for seven and a half year so some knowledge on not the most knowledgeable. But i've been doing it for a while and it. It really resembles like a very elaborate Dance or lake chessboard. Everybody has different roles that they can play So for example. We don't do medical doctors without borders says medical and like we work right alongside them when we share information. That may say like okay. What are you seeing here. What is we do sometimes water sanitation hygiene and they say look people are going to be healthier and we can control disease with better water sanitation gene. So it's this. It's this continuous partnership even before right so even before we had kind of people extra people coming in on the ground even before the earthquake after the two thousand ten earthquake we set up mercy corps. Set up an sms early warning system so anytime there's a hurricane on its way we are able to text message people and say we have a for people who don't have cell phones. There's a person in the community has a phone was assigned to spread the word. So we'll be texting out that network. They can go sailing. Repeat a very serious storm is on the way. Usually you need to do so immediately. Following the earthquake we activated that system.

The first tremor struck they were loud and noticeable but they didn't cause much in the way of destruction the console from the city of hamburg. Germany later reported quote. We i heard a rumble like the noise of a carriage and it became louder and louder until it was as loud as the loudest noise of a gun immediately after that we felt the i tremble unquote based on what happened. Modern estimates are that there was a slip in the azores gibraltar transform. Fault this fault line that runs. Approximately from the strait of gibraltar. to the a'sore islands. One tectonic plate was thrust over another and the movement of land might have been as much as one cluster. The epicenter of the earthquake was believed to have been just off the southwestern most point of portugal near cape saint vincent at nine forty a m. The main earthquake hit church bells ringing all over the city and just as quickly buildings began to collapse. The churches which were full of people were the largest source of casualties for a period of ten minutes. There were three major quakes that shook the city to its foundations. It's estimated that the earthquake measured eight point four on the richter scale just to give you an idea of how much the ground moved in the middle of lisbon city center.

"Quebec politician Dominique gloves parents. George UNGLOVED in Mealy Neptune. I'm glad we're among those killed in the earthquake. She also lost her uncle and her cousin last month as the tenth anniversary approached. She spoke in Quebec's National Assembly and told the story of her sister calling her twenty four hours after the quake Zepa Mama. That's my Malacca School because you've been the dominique ungloved is saying and I said Dad and mum and it was at that moment that I understood that in one blow. I had lost my father my mother. My uncle and my cousin Domenico glove is the liberal member in the National Assembly for the Montreal writing sent Santan. Good Morning Good Morning told me about that moment in the National Assembly this incredibly powerful Oh was It was very emotional national and I you know a today's beforehand. I didn't know whether I was going to do it. Or not I didn't know whether I was capable of speaking about this The National National Assembly. But then I I also have the responsibility to do that. My parents were due to Friskin Indians to be identified the aftermath of the earthquake and I think This story is not only my story but it's the story of hundreds of thousands of people have been acted by this earthquake. So I thought I I had to do it and I didn't know exactly what I was going to say. How was going to come out but I just shared the story like it happened And how I felt and remembering my sister calling me and my sister not being able to tell me dad and mom had passed away she was only able to tell me Who was my aunt? She's alive and Nick is alive and then I was saying and dad and she was an me is alive and sitting repeating all those lanes the people that were alive. He was incapable of telling me who was who had passed away. And that's how I understood what was going on you make that speech And then what happens. Politics can be a pretty divisive Participation to be in we know that people have different sides that they're involved in what happened happened in in that moment after when you go in regardless of what party you're from You go in because you think you can change the oil change things and I think we all human the the end so I had people from different parties coming to me and hugging me and and I could see people being emotional across all parties. Although it was a very sad moment it was also a very moving moment because as people were were all touched touched by the story and you know we have significant is for our patient as ranked Quebec. It's very hard to be quebecer and not to know one percents. That originally comes from Haiti eighty took me back a decade ago. When you first heard that their head burn earthquake in Haiti what did you think what went through your mind you know? I was restaurant and I was having dinner and somebody call into earthquake in Haiti. I'm like okay my parents out there because you're on vacation but All later it was it was nothing for me because earthquake is not something that is necessary. Terrible so I but almost like five minutes later somebody called I said. Did you see the earthquake. Oh did you hear about it and then I started realizing okay. It's more serious than I thought. And we started making phone calls all didn't have used but it was not surprising. The lines were caught and I had to wait until the next day to have news. We thought we had good connections. Some people giving us information and it was all all it was all wrong. In in from members of my family yet had died so Twenty four hours of not knowing of certainty the of stress fear and And then the news. I was going to say what were those twenty four hours like. I can't imagine seeing images hearing about it but not not knowing the state of your family. What was it was terrible? It was it was terrible. But you know we have very We're very resilient family. So he's trying to stay very active calling people finding solutions reaching out so it was also very a busy so you did have time to think too much about all this. You're trying to I was emotive trying to find solutions. But you can only imagine what a what it's like and then to us But then few hours later spoke with my aunt who had lost her her son Mike. My cousin who was twenty four years old passed away as spoke to to his mom. My aunt my aunt and she said you know dominate the dead. And there's nothing we can do about that. There's so many more things that you need to did you for the people that are alive so she was so strong that I told myself I'm here here. I am in Montreal and able to a half a positive influence despite everything that we're going to try to find solutions for the other people that are in need will deal with all this afterwards but if if we can actually get some food get people over there to help out and get back on the get back on their feet that this will will be contributing so it's a a personal tragedy within national or international catastrophe. Told me about your parents. They sounded like remarkable people So both my parents were from Haiti. the move to Quebec nineteen. sixty-nine was born in seventy four. And the reason why I was born and raised in Quebec is because my father was a was as a political prisoner under underdeveloped and He he had to leave the country and he came to Quebec in. co-founded the University of Montreal mom became a teacher and they were very involved in their communities. And when I say community for back he shouldn't communities in in Montreal. We all My mom was very involved with them. Female female groups and And my dad always invited some some kind of politics because he ended up being a minister Mr in the end in in Haiti And I think it's their engagement values that have That I've really they were able to transfer that aura to conveyed those values to us. We are with following we we walking in the footsteps. Your mom wrote a thesis. What what was the thesis? The thesis was the work of women. or how men become rich so basically defunct communism in infringing Basically illustrating that a lot of the men in he Had some money. But because of the work of the women supporting them she she was a feminist and The the book was all about the impact award jump women in the in the country. How did the work you talked about the impact that they had on Quebec Society? How did their work shape who you are now because you were involved in engineering before their death right? That's probably the reason why I mean politics today because they've always encouraged me to think about what difference I can make in the world and Politics is one way of doing that. So that's the certainly the reason why I'm doing what I'm doing today. And that that advice that motivation that your aunt gave you about The the work that you can do to help the living. What did that mean to you in terms of where you are now? It's something that I carry with me all the time. And even the National Assembly I share the fact that he had After exile after being sent to jail and finally he was a he was sent to tinker Acre back but He wrote a letter to my mom. And he said you know we're going to go and build I'm just going to translate it as a As I can right now but we're going to build tomorrow's at that look like our dreams so I thought disin- exactly what they've been able. STU gives us as values despite what's going on you always have to stand up and and fight for what you think is right we he also With the with the singer rocket fire outage in session Stein founded a foundation called copy which which means stand up inquiry all and to support people in Haiti. So I think these are values that are very very alive and that I'm trying to convert my own children that that cushion that you mentioned from your father. I mean that was that was in a letter that you found that he that he rotate your mother. Yes I mean told me about that letter. So the ladder The letter was written the year of I was born and it's also the year where he was sent to jail in that sent back to Quebec and After after they had passed away I was looking at all the papers and documents and I found that card For Chris it's on December. Twenty four th. He's writing this letter. My mom is pregnant. He goes to a nearby. My mom too tim unique and to you who doesn't have a name and he writes this card and at the end he said despite everything the wheel bill bill tomorrow was that looked like our dreams. it's very moving. It's it shows the strength that he had in the in the courage and I think we need to be inspired by this every day. When you look at the situation now in Haiti a decade after the earthquake What do you see? Of course. Haiti is going through difficult situation right now. Too Complex country a because of the dictatorship Because of everything that went wrong afterwards. A Haiti is in is in this current situation. That is very hard. The there are some initiatives that are clearly working being at the local level and copies a good example of that when you see communities are Becoming financially independent creative a standing up for themselves working agriculture working in education But at the end of the day like in any place in the world you need a stable government to make things happen and so if you think of those words that were in the letter that your father wrote to your mother that idea of building days that resemble our dreams or building days as that resembled our futures. What are your dreams for Haiti? They finally get A government that is table in they can actually focused focused on building. This new generation of leader kept population is under twenty years old It's a wealth unbelievable believable wealth. And and I really hope that there is a leader or group of people That will be able to Create opportunities for this new generation. It's a real pleasure to talk to you about this if I wanted to say.

Okay no is one of these huge eruptions where more than a hundred cubic kilometers of stuff comes out of the earth In a single eruption. Can you give us a sense. Of how much is a hundred cubic kilometers. So one hundred cubic kilometers is about route six miles by six miles by about one kilometer. So if you were to take a six mile six mile area like say that area area around downtown Albuquerque and doug down something like a kilometer into the earth and removed all dirt. That's how much material bill gets. Arrested in. One hundred cubic kilometer eruption and a super volcano is something. That's a lot bigger than that. So that's kind of a cutoff for that.

Joe trainer is obsessed with disasters. He's at the university of Delaware. Most of the time under most circumstances that you're gonna see people become the best of version. The most altruism version of themselves, especially in those first couple of minutes moments after the event there are exceptions like in two thousand three when a fire broke out a nightclub in Rhode Island. People started shoving everyone's trying to escape and by the time it was over one hundred people were killed more than two hundred others were injured. But that's the exception. It's not the rule a nine eleven as far as we know not a single person pushed anyone out of the way we'll ever was rushing to get out of the buildings. In fact, people stayed to check on their coworkers. An wakes up trapped in this bus with no idea how much time has passed. You know, it wasn't like you wake up in the morning, and you hear the birds, and you see the daylight of the new day I woke up in in the dark place like I woke up, and it was all black. She surrounded by the wall of the bus on one side, the roof of the bus crushing her, and she starts to try and wiggle toes. And her fingers he knows she wants to see if your spine as injured and finally her senses start coming back just one by one she realizes she can't see. And then the sun starts beaming in shining through the window that was somehow still intact. And then she can't hear until she can hear these people rustling around outside, and then she can feel again. And when she does she's in so much pain. She just hurts to scream. No, no, no. No. No. No. This is this is not my life. No. I'm not okay with this. This is not me. And then she sees someone. There's this guy in a fluorescent vests ending outside the window. And he says to her you're going to be okay. We are going to get you out. Will you please stop screaming? And I thought that was a fair deal. And if they were going to get me out, I was willing to stop screaming and fairly soon after that. I saw light will. There was a group of about twenty kind and brave hearted souls who had gathered on top of the bus to pull all the rubble off the bus and they had pulled the roof of the bus off. So here you are in dust covered. Close minutes after the single most devastating earthquake in southern California history and you're walking towards the chaos. Outside of a collapsed building surrounded by strangers. But what can you all do where do you start? You scream call out to people trapped inside to let them know that you're there. You don't know if they're alive when suddenly? It sounds like SOS. Yell too. Few people to come over. I'm here. Going to get you out. You're not ready for this of these people need help. So this point dozens of people are gathered around this bus. We've got like mechanics tourists just whoever is around. Right. And they're all trying to move these piles off the bus to get in out. So they start moving the bricks off the bus they pull the roof back, and they get it open just enough that light starts coming through. But they can't get her out. So one of these people who's trying to help this guy. Rob this man with bright blue eyes. He decides to get into the bus. He just gets into the bus. Yeah. At this point, the whole they have in the roof isn't big enough to pull her out, and she's stuck. So he's like all right. I'm coming in and squeezes through the metal sits down next to her and takes her hand and starts talking. What do you talk about in a situation like that? Well, he was just trying to distracter. So he started talking about what he knows which is fishing. So he starts telling her these stories of the one that got away the greatest fishy ever cut. But the whole time he's just staring into her eyes holding her hand, and he will not break I contact. I remember more light came in. So I sensed that they had pulled more of the roof off, and I could see and hear men walking into the bus. And that was the only time that rob sort of let my gaze let let our gazes move apart. Because he he said to the man who got into the bus. He said get her first mate, he's gone. And that was that was the firm. I I knew that that that other people on the bus had not made it. So everyone else had been on the bus eight people. They were all dead before people who'd been on the sidewalk next to the bus when this earthquake hit they were on that. An was the only survivor, and she was trapped and these people climb into the rubble, and they use this handsaw to cut the seat off of her that is pinning her and they mover.

Second earthquake struck on the on the twenty second of may as the c regressed the glory of became stranded between two islands the stranded boat was wrecked. When the soon NAMI wave came in and gulping it and just saying that I NAMA wave wasn't that big fucking eights right behind me. Isn't it? All right. All right.

What's the best case scenario? That's fucking stupid of is. No, no, we'll stay in these hammocks way safely after brand. The earthquake triggered landslides throughout the Andes. Smo- them were in rural and less populated areas. So while the damage was excessive the human toll was not the landslides also struck Chena lakes, and their tributaries the block waterways, basically started building up tremendous amounts of water and the evacuated the area they were fearful of a huge flood in the area if the landslides broke loose. So they mobilized hundreds of workers and twenty seven bulldozers and even resorted to people using shovels to make sure that they help. Okay. Well, hey, buddy as much as I love these. Cheerful. Upbeat topics of yours. Pause for just a minute and take a break for a skit or something or whatever we do next. So I just drink myself. Cheerful again, I need this you can drink during the segment to I do I do. Don't lie to me at. I know you've been sleeping around behind my back, meta, shall I?

See can we take a break from allies sad excuse for sex life and hear about some other moments of despair and misery don't end? Okay. My essay about dating in your thirties isn't for a couple more weeks. Let's relax and just keep it light and continue talking about dead South America plan. So the property damage was not as bad as you would expect because all of the nineteen sixties Chile could be purchased with a medium stack of Pepsi. Yeah. And spoiler the seventies. Don't get much better for Chile. That's when no. No stack of Pepsi points to a Gustavo Pinochet and. Two, and we also gave him Milton Friedman. The freida Corleones economics. Great either. I mean, this is the largest magnitude that we have ever recorded, but there was little infrastructure in the area any buildings purpose. Made to survive earthquakes didn't do too bad and mostly were damaged from soil subsidence shit that people made from Dobie and other week building materials basically fucked a bunch of just regular concrete buildings that were not built up to earth quake code just collapsed. Okay. Just going to do a quick summary. Here. I'm gonna note that what we're saying is that because people were already so poor that they had nothing. The upside was that most of the nothing that they didn't have wasn't broken except for the ones did have a little bit of something which then did break that. Yeah. That's or have you wanna put worse as saintly. You're welcome South America. Crumble down economics works. And I want to temper this. It wasn't all that bad considering by pointing out that forty percent of the houses in Valdevieso were knocked the fuck down this meant that twenty thousand people were immediately left homeless when you look at the photos, just after the quake could see large swath. So the city with all the buildings Justice centigrade some of the areas that were affected did not have new construction on them in the aftermath and remained empty until the nineties and the two thousand. Okay. Wait question. Did I miss Reed? Was this is this Detroit Detroit. No, no, no, Michigan, probably Flynn. Nope. No wrong. Again, no Orleans. Probably know we get the point, Tom. We didn't know why did see. So I don't know. I'm I'm agreeing with two we did get it. We wouldn't have New Orleans would we? The death toll isn't certain the estimates are between thousand seven thousand. But what if you don't count Trump tweets? And this is not a huge loss alive considering the devastation. Okay. Now, it seems like you're softening us up for something. See so. Seven thousand. That's not really anyone. Yeah. The low population density help keep this number of deaths. Low and the way the Wikki reads. It sounds like people mostly died from the NAMI instead of dying in falling buildings from the quake. The monetary cost was quite extensive in nineteen sixty the cost was estimated between four hundred million and eight hundred million which today would be between three point three one billion six point six two billion questions on the death toll like it's either one thousand or maybe seven thousand. Yeah. The people using dog years. For Chilean 's how this up one to seven talk to put an exact number on it somewhere between you know, zero and six thousand people died of regular stuff while riding assu NAMI. Or, but the upshot though, the silver lining is that for weeks, you could just get really good bass from your rain gutter. The death. Toll includes one human sacrifice, not see that sentence. Coming got up. Got. In a town along the coast that was populated by natives to the region. They had a human sacrifice ritual that took place in the days following earthquake one of the locals demanded the sacrifice of his neighbors. Five year old grandson to quote, calm the earth and the ocean, and quote, so what do they do? They dropped him into a volcano like photos. Fucking ring.

"Or bigger they'll grow that's been the rough argument of course it's more complicated than that for one thing some plants evolved a new path to photosynthesis over the past sixty million years as co two levels shrunk from historic highs they needed to make the most of what co two they could catch these c four plants they're called which include many grasses plus some crops such as maize and sugarcane are maxed out on co two whereas the more numerous see three plants which evolved in times of plenty are always happy for more so carbon fertilization should benefit these but not there see for cousins as i said however things are more complicated than that at least that's what they found out as a prairie station run by the university of minnesota where extra co two could be wafted over beds of grasses melissa pasteur has been doing the latest analysis we set up eighty open airfield plots in minnesota prairie planted with either all c three grasses or all c four grasses and half of the plots were exposed to present day su two levels and then half of them were exposed to co two levels about forty five percent higher than present day so we're trying to mimic levels we might expect later in the century expectation having set this all up what was the expectation in terms of the theory about how these different kinds of plants ac threes in the see fools would respond to more co two we like most other scientists have ssume that c three grasses would grow more in response to hire co two concentrations whereas c four grasses wouldn't change their growth and that has been supported by greenhouse and shorter term field studies of maybe one to three years now the important thing about your work is the you've been doing this for three years or so but for twenty years and the point is the actually found that.

"Welcome aboard science in action from the bbc with me roland pease this week we learn about the possible collective effect of bins of tiny things swimming beneath the ocean waves we're trying to understand the difference between an animal swimming on its own in an animal swimming in a huge school or swarm and so he put thousands of them in the tank and then essentially lure them toward the light and that causes a massive migration through the tank and the surprising backwash behind prone power later in the program also the fungus brought from afar to europe by global trade this ravaging european forests and the power of plants to offset rising co two levels f mature grasslands worldwide are behaving like our experiment did these warm climates before grasslands may be really better suited to help us with carbon removal from the atmosphere unexpected results from a twenty year experiment in the prairies of minnesota we start in south south korea where an experiment in geothermal energy who's been linked to an earthquake that hit the town of pohang last year it wasn't particularly powerful magnitude five point five but people were hurt and buildings were damaged and career is geologically quite stable compared to say its neighbor japan that said there was another earthquake not far away the before so clearly these events were worth investigating glasgow university's rob west away is a hydraulics engineer who took part in the geothermal operations which involved pumping water down into deep hot rocks and he's part of the team who've been looking to see if that was connected to the unexpected seismicity bush to this paper concerns the earthquake occurred on the fifteenth of november last year just outside the city of pohang in south korea this was a magnitude five and a half so it was large enough to cause damage to injure a number of people.
