In a recent two part article I introduced the reader to one of the great natural events in Earth history – the mighty Bonneville Flood. However, as I made clear, this enormous fluvial event was only a regional manifestation of a much larger event, one of such scale and magnitude that it almost defies comprehension. In this article I will […]Read more ›

Read part 1 here. PRELUDE Like the Mosul Dam, the Teton Dam was an earthen embankment structure and, like the current dangerous predicament of the Mosul Dam, the failure of the Teton Dam was the result of the cumulative effect of human error. The multiple purposes for which the dam was being built included agricultural irrigation, flood control, power generation […]Read more ›

This stone, often referred to as the Planisphere, had cuneiform pictographic markings on it that two research […]Read more ›
