The San Andreas Fault runs about one-half mile from my house in Santa Barbara, CA.
"The most popular of these involve three factors: frictional properties of the rocks in the fault zone, fluids that lubricate the fault, and feedback between vibrations created by a quake and the fault itself."
Hmmmm - ya reckon if we pumped oil into the San Andreas we could get California to slide off toward Alaska?
If that happened, the 5th largest economy on the planet (larger than France) would slide away. Southern California alone has a larger economy than Russia. Have Republicans written off the state?
Jeez - it was an attempt at a little levity, don't go getting all offended. Did you flunk humor 101?
Finally, someone who realizes California is sliding towards Alaska and not Hawaii.
