Geological faults in the Tahoe were more dangerous than anticipated Scientists prove

According to the results of the geological survey, faults in the earth's crust to the west of Lake Tahoe, California, USA, or the frontal fault zone Tahoe Sierra, are capable of generating an earthquake even more force than previously thought. Their magnitude can reach 6,3-6,9 points, which is fraught with extensive landslides along the steep bank of the Tagus. This poses a serious threat to the state of Nevada and California.

Plastic into the sea was more dangerous than expected

According to new research, the results of which have been recently published in the journal "Ekonauka and Technology", fragments of plastic entering the global aquatic ecosystems tend to absorb some chemicals with which they come into contact in the water.

This means that any plastic, cast into the sea, is a dual threat to marine animals. Swallowing a piece of sea creatures can get both gastrointestinal injury from sharp edges of debris, and contamination with toxic substances, which had time to react plastic. This greatly increases the risk of death to marine life and accelerates its onset. And even
