Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Massive Landslide Transforms Westman Islands

Posted by feww on May 13, 2010

Large chunks of rocks and earth fall off the uninhabited island of  Bjarnarey,  Westman Islands archipelago

A fisherman who witnessed the catastrophe said large columns of water rose into the air as a 50-meter wide chunk of a 120-meter high cliff broke off and collapsed into the ocean below, Icelandic Review reported.

“A large chunk of the island’s vegetation disappeared in the landslide. Where the waves used to crash against a cliff there is now a rocky scree, which extends 100 meters out from the cliff. The largest boulders are believed to weigh as much as 50 tons.”
