"A massive earthquake called an "active megathrust fault" is posing a genuine threat to southern Asia.
And if the modelling is correct, this earthquake could be at least as devastating as the 2011 quake which devastated Japan and took 16,000 lives."
And if it's not correct? Oh well...one day...maybe.....
FFS computer modeling has given us global warming, climate change and the Kim Kardashian show(and who'd ever have thought that was possible?)
These chicken little pricks and the sensationalist media that spout this garbage need a good hard smack around the ear hole. All this is is more panic inducing crystal ball gazing claptrap!
"We don't know if it's tomorrow or if it's not going to be for another 500 years," study co-author Michael Steckler, a geophysicist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University in New York City said in an article on the university website."We don't know how long it will take to build up steam, because we don't know how long it was since the last one. But we can definitely see it building."
So what the fuck do you know Michael? Well you know how to create a panic, frighten school children and get your name in the paper! Way to go!
And for a bit of good drama the Herald manages to throw in a nuclear disaster as well....cos they can...and the fucking climate change and anti fracking tin foil hat wearing fuckwits will be all over it...
"Damage to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant completed a deadly treble of disaster, contaminating an area which continues to see more than 100,000 displaced locals living as evacuees."
WTG...draw that bow, create that hysteria.
