Are the Earthquakes, Cyclones and Volcanoes that are occurring giving clue that some larger catastrophe is coming?

Conspiracies from HAARP, EISCAT, CERN’s LHC and other man-made experiments offer a plausible explanation, but certainly not a definitive one for the cause and frequency of the recent rash of disasters. 

Is Mother Nature having growing pains with theories of Tectonic Shifts, Continental Drift, the sea floor spreading;  maybe a theory of global expansion?  

Professor of Geophysics at the Nevada Seismological Laboratory, John N. Louie, Ph.D teaches, “The plates consist of an outer layer of the Earth, the lithosphere, which is cool enough to behave as a more or less rigid shell. Occasionally the hot asthenosphere of the Earth finds a weak place in the lithosphere to rise buoyantly as a plume, or hotspot.  “Only the lithosphere has the strength and the brittle behavior to fracture in an  earthquake.” http://www.seismo.unr.edu/ftp/pub/louie/class/100/plate-tectonics.html

Dr. J. Louie said, “occasionally,” yet there are daily reports of disasters from the four corners of the earth and a whole lot of places in between- most with no commonality to geography.  Some of the quakes are near tectonic plates, but not all.

Look how far apart these large magnitude quakes have occurred!  It’s a heck of a long way from Haiti, to Chile, to Mexico to China, to Spain via  http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/quakes_all.php: A few recent examples –

The recent earthquakes have many people feeling earthquake anxiety and wondering if they are foretelling “The Big One” in the United States, which geologists say is inevitable.

But the U.S. Geological Survey insists the number of major quakes occurring has not increased in frequency, yet people continue to be unusually concerned.  There is a widespread perception that something unusual is going on – a pervasive level of anxiety regarding the stability of the earth under our feet – something we normally take for granted. http://news.gather.com/viewArticle.action?articleId=281474978171654

Is it just pure randomness?  “In the last few years, scientists have found a new source of randomness that cannot be produced by a computer program. This is called algorithmic randomness and it is the gold standard when it comes to the absence of order.” http://www.technologyreview.com/blog/arxiv/25041/

There certainly is an absence of order on planet Earth!  There are often earthquake swarms where following one large quake, additional quakes occur as illustrated here http://fromtheold.com/news/earthquakes-today-chile-earthquake-swarm-continues-russia-and-new-guinea-has-few-earthquakes-20; they do not normally occur all over the earth.

Now we are witnessing volcanic swarms!  Thirty years ago, At 8:32 Sunday morning, May 18, 1980, Mount St. Helen’s erupted. Shaken by an earthquake measuring 5.1 on the Richter scale, the north face of this tall symmetrical mountain collapsed in a massive rock debris avalanche. Nearly 230 square miles of forest was blown down or buried beneath volcanic deposits… http://www.fs.fed.us/gpnf/mshnvm/

Ironically, there in an argument over funding for its National Monument Designation.  http://www.columbian.com/news/2010/apr/14/no-national-park-for-mount-st-helens-yet/

Now we see,

 ” A swarm of small earthquakes began Monday at a volcano near Anchorage in what scientists said was a warning that Mount Redoubt could be waking from its slumber. “It is reminding us that it is an active volcano.” said Rick Wessels, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Anchorage. 

Wessels said the current earthquakes were not connected to Sunday’s magnitude-7.2 quake in Mexico just south of the U.S. border. 

“We wouldn’t expect there to be any connection given the distances,” he said. http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5j8VGiRVV36COvlIWeZk4NOj06C2wD9ET7N300

We wouldn’t expect a connection?  Except, maybe there is a connection.

Thousands of miles away:

An Icelandic volcano, dormant for 200 years, has erupted, ripping a 1km-long fissure in a field of ice.  The volcano near Eyjafjallajoekull glacier began to erupt just after midnight, sending lava a hundred metres high.  http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8578576.stm

Eyjafjallajokull, the Icelandic volcano that has continued to belch lava, ash and steam since first erupting last weekend, isn’t the direct problem. It’s Katla, the noisier neighbor, that’s the concern. If lava flowing from Eyjafjallajokull melts the glaciers that hold down the top of Katla, then Katla could blow its top, pumping gigantic amounts of ash into the atmosphere.

Air Travel Grounded due to Volcanic Ash

Scientists say history has proven that whenever the Eyjafjallajokull volcano erupts, Katla always follows — the only question is how soon

“When volcanic ash reaches the stratosphere, it remains for a long time,” reports Hufford. “The ash becomes a very effective block of the incoming solar radiation, thus cooling the atmosphere’s temperatures.”  http://content.usatoday.com/communities/sciencefair/post/2010/03/global-cooling-what-happens-if-the-iceland-volcano-blows/1

The Batu Tara volcano off Indonesia isn’t sleeping soundly either with the Darwin Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) showing an ash plume rising 7,000 ft on April 5 and spreading a plume more than 35km.  

USGS offers these updates from around the world:

New Activity/Unrest: | Egon, Flores Island (Indonesia) | Etna, Sicily (Italy) | Eyjafjöll, Southern Iceland | Gaua, Banks Islands (SW Pacific) | Miyake-jima, Izu Islands (Japan) | Redoubt, Southwestern Alaska | Reventador, Ecuador
Ongoing Activity: | Arenal, Costa Rica | Batu Tara, Komba Island (Indonesia) | Dukono, Halmahera | Karymsky, Eastern Kamchatka | Kilauea, Hawaii (USA) | Kliuchevskoi, Central Kamchatka (Russia) | Popocatépetl, México | Rabaul, New Britain | Sakura-jima, Kyushu | Shiveluch, Central Kamchatka (Russia) | Soufrière Hills, Montserrat.  Updates can be found at http://www.volcano.si.edu/reports/usgs/index.cfm?wvarweek=20100407#etna

All that ash is another black mark for global warming.  Perhaps it can be washed clean with water from cyclones or hurricanes?

CALCUTTA, India (AP) — Disaster officials in India say there was no warning issued by forecasters before a cyclone struck overnight in a northeastern region. The storm’s winds topped 100 miles per hour and demolished thousands of mud homes across two states. http://www.wlos.com/template/inews_wire/wires.international/3f9eb90d-www.wlos.com.shtml

"NOAA understands and predicts changes in the Earth’s environment, from the depths of the ocean to the surface of the sun, and conserves and manages our coastal and marine resources."

NO WARNING? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, there are buoys everywhere to set off alarm bells.  The Cyclone is one  the most famous attraction in all of Coney Island and one of the most famous roller coasters in the world, (http://www.coneyislandcyclone.com/)  Those who died and lost their homes got taken for a ride alright, especially with NOAA claiming to predict weather related disaster.

West Bengal is located at approximately, Latitude : 23° 00′ N  Longitude : 87° 00′ E.  The closet data buoy is hundreds of miles away at Station 23101
National Institute for Ocean Technology
14N 83.3E
http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=23101  It is apparently out of order.  Could it have predicted the coming cyclone to give warning? It was supposed to. 


Relative Intensities of NOAA POES Energetic Particles

Perhaps it is the Earth’s bombardment of Energetic Particles or Space Weather causing an abundance of earthquakes, volcanoes and cyclones all on one day.

Coincidences or not, the Earth is ticked off.  I wonder when CERN powers down if the Earth will settle down as well. 

Stay tuned.

It should come as no surprise that scientists are warning Haiti that more earthquakes could be coming to Haiti in the coming months, as we first reported here https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/01/27/earthquake-prediction-for-haiti-and-sumatra/

PORT-AU-PRINCE (Reuters) – Haiti should be preparing for another major earthquake that could be triggered by the catastrophic one last month which killed up to 200,000 people and left the capital Port-au-Prince in ruins, experts say.

Teams of geophysicists, who have been tracking movements in the fault line that slashes across Haiti and into the Dominican Republic, came to the nation last week to measure changes in the Earth’s crust after the 7.0-magnitude quake on January 12. http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE61033A20100201

Preliminary calculations by his group show the January 12 quake could be the “little kick” that sets off another temblor along the 186 mile fault where two regional tectonic plates have been scraping together for millions of years.  http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE61033A20100201

A 186 mile fault line, that mainly devastated only one major city?  That’s what I call a kick in the ass.

Oh pleeazzze, give me a break.  These poor people in Haiti are as prepared as they are ever going to be for the time being.  There is nothing to fall on their heads or trap them.  Like in the game of dominoes, it has already all fallen down.  Haiti was warned two years ago and still it did nothing, nor could it have.  

Haiti’s biggest worries no longer come from underground; but the threat of military, humanitarian and climate interference. 

President Bellerive told CNN in an interview broadcast on Sunday that he was worried about the risk of illegal adoptions and child trafficking. “We have already reports of a lot of trafficking (of children) and even of organ trafficking,” he said, while citing no specific cases.  Yeah, like those scary Baptists taking kids to an orphanage.http://www.haitifeed.com/2010/02/01/haiti-orphan-rescue-mission-adoption-or-child-trafficking-christian-science-monitor/ 

Mark Fried from Oxfam in a recent podcast http://www.oxfam.org/haitiquake  has hit the nail on the head- what are all these people going to do when the rainy season starts in April?  Besides getting being wet, there are going to mudslides due to the destruction blocking the rains natural runoff patterns.   Say nothing of the possibility of fire from thousands cooking under makeshift sheets and tents. 

These people have more to worry about than another shimmy shake.

Scientists can detect a minuscule solar flair from the sun but they claim they can not predict earthquakes? http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/today.html

Now researchers believe they can possibly predict additional quakes in Sumatra and Haiti.

The earthquake that rocked Padang, western Sumatra, in September last year, killing more than 1000 people, was not the “great earthquake” that earth scientists are waiting for.  In fact, it may have made the next massive earthquake more likely, according to University of Ulster earthquake expert John McCloskey. That is the key conclusion of a paper published last week in the journal Nature Geoscience, the authoritative earth sciences research journal. http://alertnet.org/db/blogs/62815/2010/00/26-121510-1.htm

Going on to say:

For some years now scientists have been warning of the build up of stress on one of the earth’s great plate boundaries to the west of Sumatra in Indonesia. For more than 200 years the collision between the Indian ocean plate and the Asian plate has stored an enormous amount of energy. “It’s just like slowly drawing a bow. For hundreds of years the energy is stored as the two tectonic plates bend and deform. Then, in just a few seconds all this energy is released generating a massive earthquake and sometimes flexing the seafloor to create a tsunami.

In a few seconds, Haiti was demolished on January 12, 2010 with no warnings of preceding tremors, and no tsunami after. 

A team funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) is returning to Haiti this week to investigate the cause {emphasis mine) of the January 12, magnitude 7 earthquake there.  The geologists will collect crucial data to assess whether the quake could trigger another major event to the east or west of Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital. Eric Calais, a Purdue University geophysicist leading the team, said that most aftershocks occur within weeks of the initial quake and that the team urgently needs to get to the site to make a detailed assessment before crucial geological information disappears.  http://www.sciencecodex.com/scientists_return_to_haiti_to_assess_possibility_of_another_major_quake

Where is the geological information disappearing to?  Investigate the cause?  Natural science would tell us that the plates beneath the ocean shifted- and that has been the official cause of every other earthquake reported in the world.  No government or entity has ever come forward to say, “Hey look what we can do.”

Clearly the San Andreas Fault in California, U.S., remains quite visible.

The San Andreas Fault has not disappeared

According to the theory of continental drift, the earth’s surface is divided up into a dozen or so massive, rigid plates that rest on the earth’s more fluid mantle. Some of the plates, the oceanic plates, are under the ocean, and the others, which are much thicker and heavier, are the continental plates.  Convection currents running along the top of the mantle, created by the upwelling of new crust in some places and the sinking of old crust in others, move the plates at roughly 2.5 centimeters per year (Fig. 2). Baja California, for instance, is drifting quite rapidly––it is moving at the same rate in which your fingernails are growing! Collisions between plates result in the deformation of the earth’s crust and the uplift of mountains, and cause severe earthquake and volcanic activity as well. http://www.biog1105-1106.org/demos/106/unit08/2a.continentaldrift.html via Cornell University.

What makes Haiti so different, besides the fact it sits near some of the deepest waters of the world?   Could it be its close approximation to Puerto Rico’s negative gravity?

Above ground, scientists from Rochester Institute of Technology are sweeping the leveled city with high-tech imaging integrated into a small aircraft.

Funded by the World Bank (sic, imagine that)  and in collaboration with ImageCat Inc., the five-day flight is meticulously mapping the disaster zone to aid in crisis management and eventual reconstruction of the city…The LIDAR capability detects and measures collapsed buildings and standing structures damaged by the earthquake. At the request of the U.S. Geological Survey, Faulring is using LIDAR to map the fault line to estimate how much the earth moved. This information is critical to refinement of earthquake-risk prediction models. http://www.rit.edu/news/?v=47281

Prediction modelling is one thing, but this assumes only environmental issues and not man-made technology can alter the earth’s plates or atmosphere with the potential to cause earthquakes.  If you don’t think HAARP, EISCAT, Project Blue Beam and the host of other Tesla like technology couldn’t possibly cause an earthquake, I have water for you to drink from the moon.  We all know there is water there, we just bombed it as proof. 

Comment, you know you want to!
