A little more palaeography explained

A little more palaeography explained

Palaeography is a branch of geography (being the latter the science which describes the Earth from various points of study), which deals with the formation of the continental crust and its divisions or continents as they are known today, all througout history, or more accurately pre-history, but in geological (that is to say, from the Earth’s lifetime scale) terms that is the same as saying the day before yesterday.

The word shares the same root as the word palaeonthology, being the latter probably better known.

Well, palaeolithic era was litterally millions of years ago (the day before yesterday in the Earth’s lifetime scale of time). And yes, our way of understanding and reasoning natural processes as being athropometric analogues deviates our perception on some concepts.

Let me tell you something, and then give it some further thought yourselves.

The fact that something is very far in time (or space) does not mean it will never occur again for the rest of the time being onward. The stations, for instance, spring, summer, autumn and winter, repeat their sequence in this planet at a regular pace. A pace we all perceive because usually a human being lifetime comprises several years. Probably other creatures don’t have a long enough lifetime to conclude (were they provided with the thought abstraction abilities we have) the regular pace of stations.

The world is overheated right now, and the old junctions which have remained inactive for thousands of years (or even millions in some cases) are awakening accordingly to thermal (and other) properties of their constituent elements, being boosted by heat, which is something we all know, bearing in mind the conservative power of freezers, and accelerating power of cookers.

I will include an image I have just cropped from the webpage you can see in the image browser’s address bar.

In this image I suppressed the labels, so borders between countries do not appear. You will see instead some lines indicating well-known moving parts of the Earth’s crust, of various types. They are experiencing a noticeable change in the last three or four years, and specially this year.

I also clicked on the weather checkbox so that the temperatures, in Celsius degrees (add 300 to pass them to Kelvin) appear also. And I enlarged the scale by rolling the mousewheel a bit and centered the resulting map on Eurasian and North African tectonic plates areas, (which contain also Iberian and Arabian microplates).

Look carefully how temperatures are distributed, and be sure to make a thorough analysis on the natural emergencies actually taking place for which you have symbols in the webpage itself (you have a link in my widgets column on the right).

Either we, humans, ALL OVER THIS PLANET, do something about it right now, or be prepared to return to the ice age in not a very long lapse of time.

Stop fuels industries of any kind, right now, although I think the Earth itself has already started stopping them on its own.

I am a teacher of English who started to write this blog in May 2014. In the column on the right I included some useful links and widgets Italian is another section of my blog which I called 'Cornice Italiana'. There are various tags and categories you can pick from. I also paint, compose, and play music, I always liked science, nature, arts, language... and other subjects which you can come across while reading my posts. Best regards.
