The slope, weight of a mountain and faults

Due to the unusual heat in some part of the world, we have this year some unusual cold as well in some other parts. As the sun activities is in his lower activity this year in 11 or this year 12 years period. We should expect the warmer years ahead. Thd Californian woods fires and later the mud flow might repeat in other parts of the world. It is certain when we less rain in some period, we will have the flood later, and if with woods fire, and eventual mud flow. We have to cool down the earth in the spring or summer, through an international plan. We should take care the car industry is very important factor in the present world economy, and even with electric car we produce heat and increase the momentum and warm the world weather. The problem is the employment, and a cooler sun. The stresses in some countries can affect a continent and at most the world and hurt everyone. We see many explanations is based on the faults analyses, but as I wrote in my several articles the changing slope of a mountain basis create some more weight toward the footage of the mountain and evidently the nearby fault. As an example, take a mountain with the length of six kilometers. The weight of this mountain might be 10 to power of nine by 190 tons. Believe the mountain during the years change the slope by one ten thousand. The change of weight toward the footage is 10 to power of five.

But all the situations are not the same. For example, in the south west of Khuzestan province, near the border of Iraq, we had an earthquake of magnitude 5 Richter recently, one or two days ago. The slope made the sliding of the land upon this region. This land was not a high mountain and moved to south west. The present region, regarding the surface of the area is more near the source of the subduction zone and more suitable to expand under the sun heat. This mourning we had an earthquake in Indian Ocean south of Saudi Arabia. It will affect certainly the Fars province now with several earthquakes in Dehram. Three or four days ago we had an earthquake in Firouzkuh in the Tehran Province. A friend asked me about the following after shocks and I answered the point on the satellite map is, maybe, near a fault. The fault is the road toward the north and is good to connect three points on the road, from east to the west, with metal ropes and rods, in several parallel lines, to avoid more strong moves and to see the movement of the ropes and rods. These are the practices we should be accustomed to reduce the impacts. The mountain is in volume and slope increase under this winter heat and might make pressure on the faults. The faults are the results of the slope and become active under pressure as I mentioned. Of course, we have much larger fault movements like two tectonics pieces moving adjacent to each other. All the problem does not have the same solution. We have to take care for every problem separately.
