Earth is basically swallowing this town in California

Andy Meek

A small town in California has been making news headlines in recent days for its very big problem, one that’s contributed to town officials having a sinking feeling about its future. Literally.

Here’s the thing about the town of Corcoran, which sits almost equidistant between Los Angeles and San Francisco: The earth is basically swallowing it, such that almost 12 feet of the town has sunk into the ground since 2007 — the equivalent of the first floor of a 2-story house disappearing in that time. In The New York Times’ somewhat frightening depiction of the inexorable fate that Corcoran seems to be headed toward, we also learn that this California town of a little more than 21,000 residents sinks little by little each year. Reminiscent of the old cautionary tale about the boiling frog, it’s never enough to cause alarm. But, over time, a water management agency predicts that Corcoran could sink by as much as 11 feet over the next two decades. “We all know that, but what are we going to do?” town resident Mary Gonzalez-Gomez told the Times. “There’s really nothing that we can do. And I don’t want to move.”

The problem here is something that’s called subsidence, which refers to the phenomenon resulting from a slow-motion deflating of the earth after a significant amount of water has been taken from underground. Essentially, this causes the ground to cave in on itself, causing the sinkage seen over time in a place like Corcoran.

The circumstances that have led to this point also sound at least a little reminiscent of how the coronavirus pandemic was allowed to snowball into the problem it became, expanding in severity the same way people fall asleep — slowly, and then suddenly. Jay Famiglietti, a former scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, helped pinpoint the problem here. “There’s no way around it,” Famiglietti, who’s now the director of the Global Institute for Water Security at the University of Saskatchewan in Canada, told the Times. “The scale of the bowl that’s been created from the pumping is large and that may be why people don’t perceive it.”

michael guist of swamp people dies....

Well Michael Guist of the swamp people , died...apparently he  fell over the side of the boat....... Personally i did not think he was that  famous.....

This  shows you how bad reality TV has gotten ,when the history channel and  the swamp has  nothing to do with history.......well it  could be  if you look at how old it is , but  its  not about the age of the swamp its about people living in swamp ........

Gee ya think only 43 pissed of with china ../////I would think the planet would be  fucking pissed at their  shennanigans ……….  43 countries criticize China at UN for repression of Uyghurs EDITH M. LEDERER Thu, October 21, 2021, 5:51 PM UNITED NATIONS (AP) — More than 40 mainly Western countries criticized China at a U.N. meeting on Thursday for the reported torture and repression of Uyghurs and other religious and ethnic minorities in Xinjiang, keeping a spotlight on the region where foreign governments and researchers say an estimated 1 million people or more have been confined in camps. Cuba followed immediately with a statement on behalf of 62 countries saying what happens in Xinjiang is China’s internal affair, and dismissing all allegations as based on “political motivation” and “disinformation.” China’s U.N. Ambassador Zhang Jun spoke soon after, denouncing “the groundless accusations” and unfounded “lies” and accusing the United States and a few other unnamed signatories of the
