However, over time the water decays and causes these obstacles to be weakened. Construction has to happen very often in order to keep the hold on the rivers. Many think that the rivers will eventually break through mankind’s hold. Scientist believe that in only a matter of time the Atchafalaya will break through human barriers and run together with the Mississippi River.

Volcano Monitoring We should not continue to predict volcanoes for these reasons: it will cost a lot to pay for the items which will be expressed later on. Volcanic eruptions will happen over and over again and no amount of predictions will stop the damage. Finally, it takes up time and effort and money which we can use to fund many other things like projects in space or other locations which can improve our intelligence of this planet and solar system or maybe even this universe we call home. These are the reasons why we should not continue to predict volcanoes.
Earthquakes are caused when rock underground suddenly breaks along a fault. This sudden release of energy causes the seismic waves that make the ground shake. When two plates are rubbing against each other, they stick a little. Most earthquakes occur along the edge of the oceanic and continental plates. Due to stress they shift and cause the earthquake.
