Landslides can be caused by human use of bulldozers in oversteepening a slope. 2. Building structures on permafrost terrain can create problems during warm weather. 3. The potential for rockslides can be minimized during highway construction. 4. Septic systems and over-watering lawns can contribute to earthflows.

What do you think of global overpopulation?

Asked By: Anonymous
It is said that in 10 or 20 years there will be millions more people on the earth than there are now. We are already struggling with resources; the fish have been depleted; the hole in the ozone is letting in radiation,etc. Are you thinking about the future, as something quite bad with all the overpopulation? What do you think of this? We are so focused on immediate problems, such as how to get out of Iraq, that we are not looking at the big picture. This whole planet seems to be going down the tubes.
