I've been super busy with school this semester -- no time for Atheist Nexus, sadly!!
If anyone who's around here a lot wants me to toss them moderation privileges to run this group or anything, just send me (Sara) a message! Thanks!

Removed ability to send mass messages to everyone in the group. At 1000+ members, that seems like asking for spam.

Offer still open if anyone active in the group wants moderation privileges, but it appears everything has been going smoothly with all kinds of great discussions without moderation. Fantastic! :)

I read recently, don't recall where, that GPS data is showing that land in northern latitudes is still rising slowly because it's no longer carrying the weight of the ice of the last ice age.

I saw no mention of earthquakes in the article.

In Iceland, the split between the European and Canadian plates is growing. Is it about an inch a year? Volcanic activity interrupted air travel in Europe.

The way I understand it earthquakes maybe the lesser of our problems.  I am thinking that the change in ocean temperatures and the eventual release of methane gas will be the real kicker. Also am I wrong in thinking this or won't the cooling of the ocean eventually shut down the gulf stream starting a new ice age putting Europe under about a mile of ice. Not positive about this, but seems like I remember reading this somewhere.

Question: If the polar ice melts will that generate changes in tectonic plates, increasing earthquakes and volcanic eruptions?

I'd say the answer it "Yes."

I like Gates and I like China - but then again they are both very powerful - so......

I just read 

Gates discussing new nuclear reactor with China - Yahoo! News

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates confirmed Wednesday he is in discussions with China to jointly develop a new and safer kind of nuclear reactor.

What is your take on this?  Can nuclear power be made cheaply and safely, without risk during earthquakes, tsunamis and without weapons grade material as a by-product? How will spent fuel be disposed?
