Abstract: Rumours in social, economical, political and scientific communication indicate news, presumably true, that circulate without being confirmed or made evident. Planet Earth seems to be the elected place to give rise to frequent rumours about impending catastrophes. In this work we analyze some rumours related to Earth sciences and we give ideas on how turning them into something useful for communicating Earth sciences to the general public.
