Chance of mega-quake hitting California increases The southern San Andreas is "ready to have an earthquake because it's really locked and loaded," U.S.G.S scientists say http://phys.org/news/2015-03-strong-quake-california-future.html The report found there is a 19 percent chance in the next 30 years that a Northridge-size quake will unzip the southern section compared to a 6.4 percent chance for the northern section, partly because it last broke in 1906. Scientists are virtually certain that California will be rocked by a strong earthquake in the next 30 years. Now they say the risk of a mega-quake is more likely than previously thought The chance of a magnitude-8 quake striking the state in the next three decades jumped to 7 percent from 4.7 percent, mainly because scientists took in...
There's a reason a California official told residents to lock their doors and load their guns. Democrats control two-thirds of the legislature in California and CalWatchdog's Brian Calle asks Victor Davis Hanson about the future of the state.

California's population growth and diversity set the state apart in the world. What will the state look like in the future and what are the implications for public policy? Hans Johnson, Bren Fellow at the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC), provides an overview.
San Diego is set to soon start supplying itself with millions of gallons a day of fresh, drinkable water, using saltwater from the Pacific Ocean, converted by a brand new desalination plant. As California's historic drought continues, the plant will likely intensify the debate over the role of desalination may play in the state's water supply. Special Correspondent Mike Taibbi reports.

Nationwide, only 36 percent of registered voters last year showed up to cast a ballot. Los Angeles County is home to the most voters in the country, but it uses technology more than 50 years old. Carter Evans reports on a team of developers at IDEO who are trying to change the way we vote.
This animation projects the movement of California 100 million years into the future. (The rest of North America is held fixed.) California west of the San Andreas Fault and the Baja California peninsula will not "fall into the ocean" as it is commonly believed. Rather, they will slide northward along the western coast of Canada until northern California collides with southern Alaska, approximately 100 million years from now. California's northward motion is due to the fact that it is traveling with the Pacific plate which is moving N-NW towards the Aleutian Islands. The Pacific ocean floor near California will also move northwards and will eventually be subducted (return to the mantle) when it arrives at the Aleutian trench. Off to the west, you can see the Hawaiian islands move northw...

Coffee is now being grown in a place many thought was not possible -- Santa Barbara, California. Farmers say wherever avocados grow, so too can coffee plants, making them optimistic about the crop’s future. Carter Evans reports.
futur tsunami. La Californie est exposée aux tsunamis, selon une nouvelle étude. Le séisme de 1700 des Cascades (en anglais the 1700 Cascadia Earthquake) est un séisme supposé d'une magnitude entre 8,7 et 9,2 qui s'est produit dans la zone de subduction des Cascades en 1700 dans le Pacifique nord-est. Ce tremblement de terre impliquait la plaque Juan de Fuca qui s'enfonce sous la plaque nord-américaine dans l'océan Pacifique, depuis le milieu de l'île de Vancouver au large de la côte sud-ouest du Canada en Colombie-Britannique jusqu'au nord de la Californie, le long de la côte nord-ouest du Pacifique. La longueur de la rupture était d'environ 1000 kilomètres avec un glissement moyen de 20 mètres. Les données géologiques révèlent que les « grands tremblements de terre » (ceux qui ont une m...

The San Andreas Fault, a system that stretches more than 800 miles and is about 10 miles deep, is long overdue for an eruption, one that seismologists predict will be the source of a powerful earthquake along California's coastal region. The fault is due for an epic tremor every 150 years, the U.S. Geological Survey says. But this ominous future earthquake may be more catastrophic that initially thought, warns scientists. A 2008 U.S. Geological Survey report warned that a magnitude 7.8 earthquake on the southern San Andreas fault would cause more than 1,800 deaths, 50,000 injuries, $200 billion in damage and severe, long-lasting disruptions. Among the predicted problems: The sewer system could be out of commission for six months
