Say, What Causes Earthquakes And Are They Your Fault?
I tried to ignore the insanity of the climate cult linking the horrific Turkey earthquake with their Beliefs, and, thankfully, it was mostly just rando wackjobs on social media doing it, along with cult propagandists, like
Where an earthquake fault or volcano is primed and ready to go, climate change may provide an extra helping hand that accelerates the timing of a quake or eruption because of mudslides and glacial melt altering the weight on fault lines. https://t.co/axVvszk6RP

Earthquakes: What causes them and is climate change involved? – explainer
Earthquakes are among the many dangerous and destructive natural disasters that can occur all over the world, and as the recent quakes that struck Turkey and Syria demonstrate, they are definitely something to be concerned about.
In the most recent earthquake disaster, over 11,000 people died, but the death toll keeps climbing days later.
It’s actually a decent article, explaining the mechanics of earthquakes, until
However, climate change can in theory have an impact on earthquakes. This is because the only real variable in earthquakes is the amount of stress on a fault line. According to NASA geophysicist Paul Lundgren, the main way this could happen is if climate change caused surface water to add to the stress on a fault.
These do happen and are known as microseismicity, tiny earthquakes with magnitudes below zero on the Richter scale that humans can’t feel.
Then there are droughts. As noted by NASA researcher Donald Argus, droughts can alter the size of mountains due to a loss of water. This could, in theory, result in a change of stress on faults. Other studies have also noted that groundwater extraction by humans during droughts can also impact stress by essentially changing the weight of the planet’s crust, which could cause changes between both sides of a fault line and could, in theory, cause an earthquake.
Then there are glaciers, which themselves move around. As glaciers move around due to climate change, these can cause glacial earthquakes. This can actually reduce earthquakes because it will reduce stress loads.
There are no glaciers anywhere near the Turkey earthquakes. There are simply massive fault lines in Turkey, being near three of the major plates: the African, Asian, and European plates, plus smaller ones. It’s similar to why Greece has a topography as it does.
