While also factoring in temperatures and pressures down below, the researchers concluded that 3 billion teragrams — or a billion kilograms — are being pulled down every million years.
Lemme see here: 3 billion (3×109) kilograms every million (106) years, works out to an astounding 3 thousand (3×103) kilograms per year. Why, why, why, that’s enough water to fill up my swimming pool almost TWO times. Every year. PANIC! CRISIS! RUN AWAY!
