Collapsing Earth: Why Are Giant Sinkholes Swallowing Cars, Homes And People All Around The World?

Has the crust of the earth become more unstable? All over the planet, giant sinkholes are forming. Many of them are so massive and are opening up so suddenly that they are actually swallowing cars, homes and even people. So why is this happening? Is the earth’s crust collapsing? Is it expanding? Is something else to blame for this phenomenon? It seems like there is a story about another giant sinkhole in the news almost every single day now, and scientists seem to be at a loss for an explanation. Could human activity be responsible? Yes, the number of sinkholes in the United States definitely seems to be increasing, but we are also seeing massive sinkholes occur all over the globe – often in very rural areas. There just doesn’t seem to be any pattern that would seem to indicate that human activity is the primary factor. Hopefully scientists can figure out whatever is causing it, because this epidemic just seems to keep getting worse.
For example, a giant sinkhole that is 60 feet wide suddenly opened up and threatened to swallow an entire resort near Disney World on Sunday…
A 60-foot-wide sinkhole formed under a resort in central Florida late Sunday, forcing guests out of their rooms as one three-story building collapsed and another slowly sank.
Guests at the Summer Bay Resort in Clermont, about 10 minutes from Walt Disney World, called for help before the collapse, saying they heard loud noises and windows cracking. All guests inside the buildings — an estimated 35 people, authorities said — were evacuated before the first structure crumbled.
