"My introduction. And here you are. I mean, I love those stories. It's just passion and passion drives interest and interest drives. I mean, all manner of different things. That's why I do what I do. I get to talk to people like you, but it sounds like it wasn't just enough to geek out on identifying and understanding these things. You wanted to do something to help them, right? I mean, native plants everywhere need our help. Well, the big thing that kicked it in was mister ridgewood. He wasn't running the weed program then. It was Ellie Hess. Okay. And now his name is Ken hymes. I don't know if I put in names or not. Yeah, that's true. Okay. Well, we were looking at it, it looks like it was evading coming into the place where there were some rare plants for Larry alley. So we were looking at this wall of yellow star and said, you know, we kind of slow this down. So we would go there and sit on the edge of this massive Yelp costar and just pull for hours and maybe make a couple of feet of progress. As so, you know, we were doing that just to save them the last things. It actually was infesting a 105 acres and the whole place is 467 acres. And most of it is not grassland. There's an awful lot of Woodland. Sure. And there is some good night grasslands that the yellow star can not invade. Thankfully. So there were areas that you just wouldn't see yellow star never see it. In fact, we had little gullies where you'd see a little line between one side and the other, the yellow star beyond one side, but not on the other. And that was because the soils on one side were good enough, washing down from other rock types, and then the other side was just serpentinite and no yellow star. Geology matters. Oh, it does. This is one of the things that I've really learned with edgewood. It's, are you familiar with melanges? No, no. I would hear in California where you have continents colliding, you get these rocks called launches. It's just this ground up mess of rocks. And you can not do what normal geologists do. And that's look at a formation. So you go in, you say, here's the bottom. Here's the top. This is measured this high and it has these things at these levels and all of that important. Can't do that. No tops, there's no bottoms, everything's mixed up. It looks like a fractal. Oh boy. Every level you look at it, it looks the same. They're little bits of this rock mixed in with that rock all the way up to these huge boulders mountain type things sitting in certain night. Wow. So it's really, really amazing. And I mean, geologically, that is just from the collision of the Pacific plate into the North American play, right? Yes. It's having all that ocean oceanic material stuffed down into the crust and down into the mantle. And then it gets barf back up. I call it earth barf. Nice. I like that. That truly puts an image in my head that I think encapsulates what you're trying to illustrate in a very colloquial way. I appreciate that. And again, it's just amazing. Looks that way. You know, the role these metamorphic rocks mixed in with, you know, stuff that's not metamorphosed. Yeah, I like that. And again, it is just this wonderful reminder of these massive processes that are extremely hard to perceive on any sort of human time scale unless you unfortunately are a victim of an earthquake, but it all comes together to inform biology in a big way. At least they aren't the earthquakes that produce the melange, those are the big, big earthquakes, the 9s that you hear in the one in Indonesia, the one in Japan, the one in Chile, those things are enormous. And we're going to have one up in this northwest someday. Lovely. Yeah. There's still subducting up there. Oh boy, my heart goes out to those folks. And everyone else that's up there. Oh man. But thinking about this in the context of invasive species. I mean, it's a hot button issue. Sometimes rightly so sometimes not so rightly so. And we'll get into yellow star in a minute here. But it's something that's worked on this, that someone that cares about native biodiversity, especially some things that could easily disappear from the landscape. I run into a lot of people that some well informed some not so that think invasive species we should just let it be. It's nature taking its course. And I just, I can't validate that mindset. What are your thoughts? My thoughts is monocultures produce nothing. Perfect. One of the things I noted, by the way, when we were hitting that wall of yellow star, nothing was eating it. There was no damage on the plants, nothing. I'm always looking for this. Sure. One day I found something had chewed on it. Hey, there's something chewing on this. So I went and looked about biocontrols. And sure enough, they had been releasing biocontrols just across the road from edgewood county park. And they were making their way in. And it's a biocontrols are really one of the best things you can do. Because they are always out working on it. I only go out on Friday. The bugs are out there eating the entire season. And they do a lot of damage. Now, they haven't found a single biocontrol to stop edge per yellow star, but what I found was that once the there are two of them that are really doing a good job, once they got established, yellow star didn't drop seeds for the first month. So essentially, they've hit almost every head damage everything. So we had an extra month, they didn't produce as many seeds, so instead of finding a thousand per square meter, you had bigger plants, but fewer of them. So they were easier to do. Okay. And they also on what I would consider marginal soils. They disappeared for a while. Wow. Yeah. All right. Now what happened, of course, if you have a bio control, what happens? Biocontrols attract predators. I'm sure enough the spider showed up in the yellow star. There was a rodents that would come and they would chew off the seed heads. Why were they doing that? Not to eat the seeds. They were looking for the bugs in the seed heads. A little hit of protein. Yes, I actually found that out by reading an article about the Prairie thistles. Oh yeah. Which they had a bio control that was reached released that eats all thistles. Yeah. And one of the problems, of course, was that these rodents were not coming into snipping off the flower heads to look for the bugs. Oh boy, yeah. And the other thing, too, is I had two interns of mine at grassroots ecology, which is a nonprofit I worked for for ten years. And they were, I gave them the task of going to yellow stars taking off the heads and seeing what was coming out of them on each individual plants and let's see what biocontrols were doing. And what we found was that typically a plant that had one biocontrol had only that when not the others. But once we were roping up, there were these wasps coming out, little parasitic wasps. Oh, turns out a native parasitic wasp decided to go after the use to no Pelosi, which is a weevil, and we're eating them. Wow. Who would have thought? Well, that's it, you know, nature is, you know, if you've got something to eat and it's close enough to what you go after. Yeah. There they are. That's exciting, yeah. I mean, I like reading about biocontrols. I mean, obviously, these things have to be properly researched and vetted before they enter the landscape, but they're an important tool in the toolbox of invasive species. Management. But the theme here, the reason I was turned on to your work in your efforts is because of this yellow star, yellow star thistle, if I'm thinking correctly, right? So tell us a little bit more about this plant. What is it, where did it come from? Or what do you know about it? Let's see. Centaurium, solitary. Okay. It blooms at the solstice. Oh. And that's why it's got the name. Interesting. So it's typically about one week either side of the solstice. It starts blooming. There are a few early ones on hotspots. It's from the region of turkey, sort of the upper Mediterranean area. It doesn't have thistle like leaves, all of the spines are on the flower heads. Ah, okay, hence you can pull. Yeah, this is the genus of nap weeds, which I'm sure you know about. Yeah. So it's got the same sort of thing, only it has the needle sharp spines on the heads..

"That. Will you have the one that would knocked out the dinosaurs. But that was way back those in my fifty million years way back. I haven't heard any recent one. But we've had major periods of extinction All throughout earth history earth has had very close calls but earth always seems to bounce back and i'm not worried about earth earth's going to be around for billions of years. Life's gonna be around for for billions years. I'm just not sure theme race as you're out you're right about that. The earth is just fine. There's life two miles down. That doesn't even need sunshine. It'll be there. It might look different. It's this whole speciesism thing. we know. we're sort of a bad actor right now. we'll clean ourselves. we can i can do it. Are you hopeful. I mean you've seen the world longer than i have. I'm an optimist because you know what's really cool about optimism and pessimism. You have a choice. And i choose to be optimistic. It sure is a lot nicer world. If you do that it is you know it is always like that. Like berle is wasn't always look on the bright side of life or whatever I just love being an optimus. Because i have a choice and i'm gonna be an optimist and you can't talk me out of it. I i love that in my own life. I decided that i was going to believe in reincarnation because whether or not it's real or not if my nervous system believes that there's a reset button and i get to play again. I'll probably be less stressed about death. And if i'm wrong i won't know there's my optimistic i believe in that too. I believe in that too and again. We have a choice because certain things are in science. we call our non linear. They're indeterminate. You know and we all have that question. Where do we come from. Why are we here. And where are we going and you can fill in the blanks so filming positively because at least you can be less stressed. And if you're who cares right it's right. I really interested in in one other thing that you've done so much science i i could talk to you for hours but of course we have hours so one of the early things you did. Is you contributed greatly to the tectonic plate theory. That was my first biggie. The plate tectonic theory. Yeah now you led to when people would say you know what race are you. I'd say i'm panjaitan is another. I'm human because of your work and you're very old. Yeah now i. It's so beautiful. Because when i was going to school the geology book was gobbly gook and i remember going through insane i just don't quite get it and they said well you're not. It's not smart enough. But when we what i have found in science with mommy finally figure it out it's simple that's the beauty of it. You know when you look at all the equations that preceded equals. Mc squared boom. The blackboard was full of of equations. I always tell people if you can't tell a fifth grader. What you're doing. You don't know what you're doing so you can always when you finally cracked the nut. Explain it to remember. I'm first of thirteen generations of my family to go to college. And i was able to sit down with my grandma and explain plate tectonics and she got it. So it's pretty simple. The earth is alive. You have to think of it as the concept of that. The earth is a dynamic feature. It's it has pieces. We call them plaits there about twenty two big ones and those plates are doing one of three things not for one of three things are either moving part and when you rip open the earth it bleeds. Its molten blood rises from inside. It's body up to the cracks. That's called the mid ocean ridge where the plates are separating just like blood is liquid at coagulates and it forms new tissue called ocean oceanic crust and then as it moves away from its side of genesis its bumps into another place because the earth is not getting bigger smaller. So there's a dance going on a dynamic dance going on and then when the plates collide one subsides against the other and remelt. That's where we get the big earthquakes japan and indonesia and then there's a third kind of behavior worse. Not doing this not doing this but go ahead. And by that way and that's called. the san. Andreas fall is a transformed fall. You have san francisco sitting on the north american plate. Los angeles sitting on the pacific plate and the two towns are going towards one. Another is going to be a long time before the dodger giant games across town rivalry but it will. It will get those. Two cities will get closer your height in your lifetime. They're getting closer and that's plate tectonics bingo end of story and and is so beautiful because then we know how the earthworks and all the resources of the earth were not put here by an easter bunny. They were systematically made by plate tectonics so we now know where to look. It's amazing rosetta stone. We were given in the sixties. And i was lucky to be in that graduate student period and msa historic famous projects that confirmed the theory In nineteen seventy a seventy two. Three and four. It was cool but that was then followed when we wrote so that throughout the geology book. We wrote to geology book. Then here we are in nineteen seventy seven going along this mountain range where the plates are separating and barren rock looks like the moon couple fish here and there but not much and we turn the corner and there is a giant worms. Thirteen feet tall thickets of them and we call it. Rose guard sticking out of the worms was a. It's long but this big sticking out of this red feather -ly lung and it's ingesting poisonous. Hydrogen sulfide gas. Coming out of the volcano. There were clams foot across when you open them..

"Storms during nineteen ninety seven ninety eight washed away tons of sand revealing hundreds of stumps the remnants of a sitka spruce forest. It's through a combination of carbon dating the counting of rings. That the date of the last cascade subduction zone quake took place. The earth's surface is made of southern manager plates and many smaller ones. The smaller place creator earthquakes for short duration of fourteen to forty five seconds. That may reach nine point five on the richter scale. They often take place what is called the fault line between these plates. Many people are familiar with the san. Andreas fault march. eleventh twenty. Eleven japan experienced a subduction zone. Quake that lasted more than four minutes. At nine point one. On the richter scale it was the fourth most powerful earthquake in the world since modern record of began in nineteen hundred the shade created a su- nami that reached a hundred and thirty three feet and muga six miles. Inland it move. Japan's main island of honshu eight feet shifted the earth on its axis between four and ten inches. This was an earthquake created by the shifting of the pacific plate finally to help put earthquakes in perspective the loma prieta quake that he will erupted the nineteen eighty nine world series in san francisco. California lasted fifteen seconds. The great san francisco earthquake of nineteen six was eight point six and lasted forty. Five seconds but japan's great earthquake of twenty eleven lasted over four minutes. Nine point one. On the richter scale based on data from oregon seed geographer patrick corcoran.

"Handel here and the morning crew as we enter the last half hour of the show. For Gary and Shannon show up in about less than half an hour. The trial of the former president in the Senate that starts just been a couple of segments. Trying to explain that today, the federal safety officials, the NTSB expected to announce that the cause of the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant and eight out of others And its pilot error. I mean, we all knew that 50 years ago today, the film our earthquake hit and what was important about the sill Mark wake more so than the Northridge quake more so than, for example, the long beach quake of 1933 some great video that W C fields actually filming. A movie at the time when it hit and there is actually film of him on the set when the whole set started shaking in 1933 was a little bit of sidebar history. They're not that it makes any sense. And so what happened with the sill? Mark? Wake? Well, first of all, it was good size 6.6 across the San Fernando Valley. It was 6 A.m. February 9th 1971. And the epicenter was right where six flags of six flags Magic Mountain was but a toy that point there was nothing there so they call it still mark wake about six miles north of Fillmore. Wasn't the big jolt or the region's first big jolt. But here's what happened as a result of the Cellmark wake, because a whole bunch of people died. And it was like 84 people died and buildings were destroyed on and the matter fact here's the personal story. All of you medical center had just been built up in still more. And three people died it all of you, and they were all in the basement. They worked a laboratory. Was the medical laboratory there where they did the testing and, you know, drew the blood and all that. And my mother, who was a lab technician. Worked in that lab. And her shift started at 7 A.m.. An hour before the earthquake hit. And literally it pancaked and the people where she was and her department died. And that was really close to home. So when you talk to my mother about the Somare quake Oh, yeah, Boy, There was a connection there. So what ended up happening as a result of the sill? Mark, wake well. The building codes not only in California, Southern California changed but all over the country. The authorities then began dealing with earthquakes. Anyplace there was the possibility of earthquakes and it made California a Saper a safer place. Reshaped laws, construction rules mitigation. All of it happened as a result of the quake on medical centers, particularly were dealt. These huge blow is a veteran ministrations in San Fernando Valley killed 44 people, the newly as I said, the newly constructed all of you. Center in Silmara killed three people in the basement forced 2000 patients and personnel to Free. The hospital Safety Act of 1972. The next year insured that hospital buildings had to be built to a new standard or hospitals have to be retrofitted. I'm a member of Kaiser, as you know, and then Kaiser has a hospital in Appointment or Panorama City. It was a building built What 40 years ago? Maybe. And so they were gonna expand the hospital they couldn't use it is the hospital anymore because they didn't make meet earthquake standards that had passed And it's not one of those. Your grandfather didn't either. Hospitals and other buildings have to meet. Earthquake standards. And so what they did, they turned it into an office building. And build a hospital right next to it, and then as result of the quake Also, the California Geological Survey began creating maps off neck of known active faults, but they hadn't done before. And these were maps of faults that had occurred over 12,000 years. So they're out of this quake way Got the road map of Southern California in California in general, and, uh, There have been earthquakes in Idaho there. Well, a lot of it has to do with fracking to where it just changes the geology of the earth. But here in southern California, we have the San Andreas fault. I don't know if you've ever been to Palmdale. You can actually see the bulge. Where the two plates come together. And that's the Pacific Plate, and that's the one that went. It really moves is going to be the big one. San Francisco The quake of 1906 destroyed the city. I'm just wiped it out, mainly because of fire, but you'll see the buildings crumbling. Uh, the quake was the quake. I'm trying to get the year in San Marino, uh, out of Sanford Snow is the San Francisco quake and the Marina area. Where the dirt sand had become liquefied, and that's what happens in certain quakes. It just it literally becomes quicksand. The buildings come down. All of that is now taking into consideration changes everything, and that's what this Omar quake did, and because of the building codes in southern California, among the toughest in the world. The rest of the country and the world looks at these. I think the only country that comes close to what we do is Japan and in many ways technologically, they're way ahead of us. And so construction codes. It's all about the still mark Quake here in Southern California 50 years ago today and it Z. It was tough, but the good news came out of it is we now look at construction if you're building and I don't care if you're developing or building or even remodeling the reason it cost so much. Is number one, the permitting process just the cost of getting permits Permission to build here but also because of the earthquake issue. Coming up the $15 minimum wage, which is part of the new stimulus package that the president is pushing, pushing. I want to talk about the $15 and there will be two issues. I want to discuss one The financial issue. The cost the real cost legitimate argument. No question about it. The other one the sociological moral aspect of it to me, no issue whatsoever, and we'll end the show with that. Okay, if I am 6 40 let's check in with Jennifer. Well, most of the U. S. Is seeing a big decline in Cove in 19 hospitalizations that Kobe traffic tracking project says those have dropped by 10% or more in 40 States. 2021 NASCAR season.

Hopefully that's all. We'll leave it right there. Well, I was in the Navy in the first one. I was on a ship in port in Mare Island. When the first one on the space shuttle blew up in 86.

Yeah, it was Bella Bella. Yeah, You couldn't. You couldn't. I mean, he was just you know, it's high school. Kids aren't set up to stop a guy like that. You know, he's running like he does this thing which I've never seen before at that level, but not you would come up like he's so fast. He kind of almost hear that little stutter step up to the whole, like, Let's say the slant or something, and he would just wait. He was so quickly, you know, you know those guys. Have a gale Sayers here. He would just wait for that moment. Like most guys just hit the whole right head down, Push each standard and just kind of keep a steep Chattanooga poop one way or the other. He still does that. She is really to see it. That was pretty sick. I saw him against against de La Salle one day and he was It was like student body left student body, right? And then you think he's running for, like, Maybe because you know, I'm not I'm sitting in the end. So you think he's running for like 45 yards back, Harris Gain of 11 16 13 seriously. Nobody's even touching him. He just student body, right? Kind of running out of bounds and 13. Hey, what about the What about the incredible waves the last couple weeks? All time. I mean, it's been I've been on this. I actually had to quit surfing because last couple days because I'm exhausted. I've been surfing nonstop for two weeks. It's been I mean, not Mavericks, obviously, because it's scary and big. And but it's been good everywhere and especially down the coast a ways But it's the brunt of surf has been I can't say impressive because I've been watching for 40 years, but it's it's maverick. Spirit says they're surfing it again today. I mean, it's been breaking every day 15 to 20 ft, not and you know, and then that one day A massive day last Sunday was I think there were 60 ft sets that's so credible. It's so messed up. It's still mess up and the well here's the Here it is. I mean, the So the cemetery is fall divides the Pacific plate from the North American plate. So the Pacific Plate is where the Mavericks is in the North American plate is right on just a little few miles inland. I'm like Crystal Springs over the reservoir. You know that reservoir on the way up? That's kind of Sandra, sir. So the Where's the Mavericks? When the crack onto the North American plate they register on the seismographic? UC Berkeley? I mean, they're not throwing up cat, You know a six or any like that, but they register they registered by brace, they vibrate the place. It's messed up. Yeah. Do you think those dudes do you think those guys out of Mavericks if they saw a wave coming That was 200 ft, where they try to ride it. Well, they could cause what would happen is that they'd be out on it when it gets the bigger the way it gets, the deeper the water breaks, and so you're lined up in a certain spot based on the size of a way to talk about work. What everybody be too far inside to get it. But I And we're I was out doing some TV stuff and we're on a boat and we're in the channel. You've probably seen those guys sit in the channel, and we're out there all day from four in the morning like four in the afternoon, and just having fun is great taking pictures of something and so One point and this is the thing about the ocean. I would say in this Last two weeks because it's so dangerous right now, so dangerous and you're reading all the stories, the news stories of people and that's just here. It's happening all the way down to Los Angeles all the way up to organ in Seattle. The waves are massive right now even write even today, And so they're the idea that, um The A lot of were sitting the channel and so I'm in this boat disposed Probably 100. FT. Is 100 FT. No, it's probably It's probably 70 ft. It's a big boat, Robert. You guys and all that. They were sitting in the channel. And what happens is sometimes the waves would come in and I'll get quick clip clip in from another direction. So we're watching the reef or sitting in the channel. But every once in a while, if you ever watch four point break, the wave will kind of come around that point. And get scooped up by another. Swell some or energy coming up from the south in a wedge is up in the deep water, and so we're sitting in this boat and I'm watching this happen in the way was probably 100 ft. And it's coming in. Now we're in the channel. It's too technically, It's too deep to break but because, like the wedge does this, too and in Los Angeles and sit down that area it Thies to swells merge and create this massive peak. And as we're sitting in this boat, you hear the guy. It's like you're going, I'm going. I'm going on the boat charge because you want to face the wave in such scratching over E get veterans. I consider getting scared talking about it and I literally have one leg over the side of the boat. Because they see that all you see is this 140 sites. It's not breaking, but it's screech feathering at the top, and then you're going going on younger and younger, so gnarly everywhere. I mean, we were fine, but you can just have seen a couple a couple years ago. Something bad happened out there with the butter there. Bunch of guys went in, but but they just get huge and they come out of nowhere and The thing I would say is and I say it keeps I'll say it again next couple weeks to you just don't want to mess with it like those guys crab fishing off Ocean Beach. Now they do this move where they take them. The fishing poles. And the throw out a line and how do you catch crab with a fishing pole They put in. They have like these kind of bait balls. They put on the end. Get the crab. It's tangled in trying to get the bait. Then they reel it in. But Standing out there. It's so dangerous right now, because if you do get swept up by one of these once every four hour ways every five out once a day with you never, I mean, they just did. It's weird when the swell gets big like this. Things that can happen. I've been I've had. I've been swept out numerous times, but I've had a wet suit on or something. So it's been terrible. But if you were, you'd be dead. You know, you could be hypothermic in 10 minutes. So it's super dangerous. I didn't and I don't think answered your question. But no, you didn't. But if I if I think if I put on a wet suit Could I Boogie board Mavericks. You could you believe you know what's weird about that? Like you could paddle out for sure You could paddle out like they can't stop you. Which is weird to me because I know, but I know a lot of guys. Not most. I know kind of the guys who surf out there. And it's a lifelong like females kind of the guy right now. He's just that last wave. I don't know if you saw it posted it up a couple nights ago, But there's probably a 50 or 60 Ft way. Probably the biggest wave of this year. One of the biggest waste ever ridden and you could go sit by Pete if you wanted to. But I mean, it's just the guys that it's just that's just weird to me if anybody can go out there because it's super, it's super gnarly. But these guys like Peter's been serving it. 1st 30 at least probably 25 30 years regular. You could say, you know you could Boogie Board Mavericks if you want to. I think you probably could probably hard again. Yeah, I guess you could on the right day. Sure. Yeah, There's a guy on water. We should go out. We should try that. Yeah, We should be really cool. So the enthusiasm Where is your spot? You gotta stand center you Ocean Beach. Where's.
The Cascadia Subduction Zone
"Today we're going to look at the Cascadia subduction zone, and what could be a mega quake the Pacific northwest subduction zone earthquakes have occurred every three hundred fifty years since six hundred BC with the most recent taking place January twenty six seventeen o one evidence for earlier quakes come from core samples taken from the. The Ocean floor, and from rings counted in the Ghost forest that I'll talk about a little bit later. The seventeen hundred quake caused several coastal regions, Washington and Oregon to drop sixty six feet, massive coastal storms during nine, hundred and ninety, seven, Ninety, eight, washed away tons and tons of sand, revealing hundreds of stumps, the remnants of a Sitka spruce forced. It is through. Through a combination of carbon dating an accounting of rings that the data, the last Cascadia subduction zone or C. S. Z. quake took place. The Earth's surface is made up of seven major plates and many smaller ones. The smaller plates creator earthquakes for short durations of fourteen forty five seconds at may reach nine point five on the Richter scale. They often take place of. Of Water call faultlines between plates March Eleventh Twenty Eleven Japan experience a subduction zone. Quite that lasted more than four minutes at nine point one on the Richter scale. It was a fourth, most powerful or quake in the world. Since modern recording began in nineteen, hundred shake created a Su- Nami, the reached a hundred and thirty three feet and mood six miles inland google. Google Japan's main island upon shoot, eight feet in shifted the earth on its axis between four and ten inches, this was an earthquake created by the shifting of the Pacific Plate finally to help put earthquakes in perspective, the long Prieta quake that interrupted the nineteen eighty nine world series in San Francisco.

Keep in mind the by the time you finish listening to this. There will have been earthquakes somewhere in the world. The Pacific
"Welcome to kids Smith and mystery your host kid crumb today. We're GONNA look at several events that were predicted. And of course we'll start with our current pandemic predicted seventeen years ago by science. If you still believe in science and is this a first well of course not you can look back. A hundred years to the nineteen eighteen. Banish flu epidemic tremendous number of similarities. Between on then. And what's going on now but we're going to leave that behind. Don't look at earthquakes. Also predicted are subduction zone. Earthquakes have occurred every three hundred and fifty years said six hundred BC with the most recent taking place January twenty six seventeen o one evidence for the earlier quakes or predictions comes from core samples taken from the ocean floor. The seventeen hundred quake caused several coastal regions are both Washington and Oregon to drop sixty six feet. Massive coastal storms during the nineteen ninety seven and ninety eight storms washed away tons of sand revealing hundreds of stumps the remnants of Sitka spruce forest. It is through a combination of carbon dating and counting of rings. That the date of the last cascade subduction zone or C. S. Z. Quake place the Earth.

Tourists missing after deadly New Zealand volcano eruption
"So many of us woke up here in this tragic news of white islands located twenty nine miles off of new Zealand's North Island had erupted five people confirmed dead and eighteen injured and more than twenty people are thought to be missing police say there have been no signs of life from the island no more survivors are expected to be found rescuers have been unable to land on the island but they say a number of helicopters have passed overhead and they are asking that if anybody was on the island with misdirection to reach out to Chris Pleasants at mail online dot com so no signs of life after a volcanic eruption that happened at two eleven PM their local time there were an estimated fifty tourists around the crater eighteen survivors are evacuated some suffered severe burns there's been an estimated twenty seven people unaccounted for police say the number of messages in the double figures but refused to give an exact figure Australian prime minister Scott Morrison said twenty four Australians were visiting the island at the time of the disaster three Britons we don't know how many Americans rescuers have so far been unable to get onto the island because the land slides and for the Russians there are a number of rescue helicopters that are already trying to look and they didn't flying all all throughout the night their time officials said early Tuesday and that's Tuesday their time but no signs of life have been seen at any point and they are not expected to find anybody else alive which means the death toll could be as high as thirty two so this is what Corey what Corey is known as a white island twenty nine miles looking off new Zealand's in Northern Ireland they said the plumes of smoke and debris went about twelve thousand feet into the sky and I guess this is a very popular tourist attraction you see people involves taking pictures of this they were likely to be in a boat when this happened you see people trying to get into a vote from the island and the place is completely covered in ash for you know talking about is a real great island why is it a tourist site will it's a great because of the ash kids barely a beautiful island you just can't tell because there's absolutely so you want to see a video footage people screaming to get inside the vote right and to as they need to get away from the flames of the pools are a lot of scrambling lot of chaos and you know they say this is a very active volcano and so we're not sure why people would the I don't not sure why they would be tourists there if there was an active volcano Tony von former mayor of the nearby town of all cuddly said that a guide for the white island towards company was among those killed most of the Australians caught up in the disaster are thought to be passengers of the ovation of the seas cruise liner it departed Sydney last week speaking earlier Monday New Zealand prime minister Justin the ardour and said they were never chores from her country and overseas on the island at the time all royal Caribbean owner of a vision of the seas issue the same as in the ship would stay in the nearby port of Toronto overnight until we learn more about the situation some fairly wide island is new Zealand's most active volcano courts Daily Mail and had seen its last major eruption in two thousand was smaller events over the years officials said it's unlikely the volcano will erupt again in the next twenty four hours but obviously people are warned to stay away from I'm they're worried about tsunamis that can now happen earthquakes and other sorts of possible unrest geological hazard trekkers gill net is registered motor volcanic unrest on the island for weeks but the nature of organic activities and predictable with the eruption unforeseen so family there's a camera on the critters ram run by gill nets and they take pictures every ten minutes and you see a string of people visiting the crater the next shot taken into twenty was unreadable which means people were there at the crater when a blue so yes I crazy up really experts say that this was a disaster waiting to happen what island was always quote too dangerous for the number two was was in the aisles experts said and the warranty people of risa for the blast landslides they say emeritus professor ray costs from mo not universally branded the island as by its may ori Nemo cari quote a disaster waiting to happen for many years he said I've always felt there was too dangerous to allow daily tour groups that visit the uninhabited island by boat or helicopter nearly back in nineteen fourteen the small money committee on the island was wiped out because falling rocks weekend by the island's volcanic activity strip the village so they thought a Pacific plate that moved westward underneath the Indo Australian plate where New Zealand sits on the rock pushed underneath melts turns into macula fills with gases the hot rocks creek circulation patterns underneath volcano than sting breaks through the rocks a buildup of pressure accumulated direction sites in the rocks hold back the pressure breaks gas rapidly release and then you have the volcanic eruption so mining activities when bands of the island has been uninhabited now for more than a century but still a hot spot for to resell because of okay and she'll net news it was the logical hazard information center as far as what island as it was most active cold volcano only the top is visible with eighty percent under water so we'll keep you guys posted it is so tragic and again you just don't know why this was such an active tourist spot I mean I saw Dante's peak I am done these be they said they could pick up farmers and they could check for soul for in the water and there's like all sorts of stuff that they could do but apparently it's one of those things where it might have been you know like other boy cried wolf and so maybe they just kind of took it for granted so unfortunately as we hear more about who passed will keep you
