The Joplin EF-5 tornado killed 158 people, and completely destroyed the majority of the city. As Hurricane Ivan had narrowly missed crossing the city a year previously, the scenario for a major storm impact was well known. Low extraction volumes would minimize impact, Mark notes. These rifts in the Earth's crust, spewing lava, gases and ash, are immense forces of nature. This motion of water currents plays a very important role in shaping landforms.

The ozone layer blocks ultraviolet solar radiation, permitting life on land. [149] Other atmospheric functions important to life include transporting water vapor, providing useful gases, causing small meteors to burn up before they strike the surface, and moderating temperature. [150] This last phenomenon is known as the greenhouse effect: trace molecules within the atmosphere serve to capture thermal energy emitted from the ground, thereby raising the average temperature.
