What goes up must come down, taking stuff that's holding up your pedestal.

What goes up must come down, taking stuff that's holding up your pedestal.
This is a woowoo theory that someone told me in real life!
----------

You know how we're always mining stuff out of the ground, well what happens if you don't put anything back?

Does the ground just stay there or does it move to fill in the hole?

What if that's what's causing all the earthquakes and that sink hole in America!

----------
If you ask me it's possible, one thing's for sure, this woowoo theory is a hell of a lot saner than most of the stuff on this forum!

But I think it's more probably that the oil is seeping through the Earth's mantle at a level closer to the core.

That way, when oil is discovered in places it wasn't beforehand, it's simply heated up by the Earth's core. This expands the oil giving some people the impression that it may be regenerating or possibly even abiotic!

It's the missing oil that's caused some Earth to fill these caverns thus in turn causing the earthquakes!

Discuss!
Holy cow! It's the woowoo patrol!

Mines ARE backfilled. It's part of the mining process.

As for oil, here in Fort McMurray, we strip mine it and reclaim the giant hole as we work through it.

I wouldn't worry about it too much, perhaps it has an effect, but people simply don't mine deep enough in enough spots to matter. A few places go miles in, but most other mines are all but surface features. Even with a mine that's massive and deep, you're still talking a pin prick into an enormous sphere. It's not going to do much, even if those mines were multiples of what they are today.

That said, I wouldn't mind seeing a few of the salt mines under a few choice major cities suddenly give way...
