US scientists predicts Big earthquakes in 2018

earth-tremorsAccording to the two US scientists, Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado and Rebecca Bendick of the University of Montana finding, Big earthquakes are predicted in 2018 with 1 billion people at risk.

The two scientists have presented their findings, published earlier this year, at the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America in October.

Fluctuations in earth’s rotation speed and length of the day by several milliseconds will cause changes and release vast amounts of underground energy.

Their theory says the slowdown of teh earth creates a shift in the shape of the Earth’s solid iron and nickel inner core which will have an impact on Tectonic plates causing devastating earthquakes across the globe, especially in heavily populated tropical regions.
