This is a 15 minutes short  video of amazing images flying over, hiking and discovering the magical Aragonese mountain Monte Perdido. This  scientific geology documentary made for the Pyrenees National Park (France) and the Comarca de Sobrarbe (Spain) in collaboration with UNESCO shows all the beutyness of the highest limestone peak in Europe in the heart of the spectacular central massif of the Pyrenees, at Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park.

Last week when explaining The Earth´s Internal Energy and its effects: Earthquakes, volcanoes, folds, faults and orogenies, a couple of students form 2ºESO A, came up with a very interesting question. In fact, not all the scientist agree with a same answer.

 Why aren’t there any volcanoes in the Himalayas?

A través de la RedBioGeo encuentro la recomendación de este artículo de análisis de José Cervera sobre las repercusiones del terremoto sucedido en Haití en 2010 y que recupero ahora al hilo del suceso en Japón:

Los terremotos no matan gente.

El artículo comienza con estas dos sentencias contundentes:

Los terremotos no matan gente. Lo que mata gente es la pobreza.

José Cervera

A lo largo del texto se pone el acento sobre la medidas preventivas  que se pueden tomar para paliar los daños basándonos en el contenido científico para el cual es imprescindible el conocimiento de la geología.

La recomendación del artículo vino de Juan Carlos Sánchez Blasco.
