2011 is on target to record the largest number of earthquakes in a single year for at least 12 years reported Irish Weather Online, using data from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), has found that earthquake activity (5.0-9.9 magnitude) from 01 January to 19 June 2011 is already exceeding the total annual seismic activity for the years 2001, 2002 and 2003. 2011’s total number of recorded earthquakes is also expected to exceed the most seismically active year of the past 12 years, the year 2007.
A total of 1,445 earthquakes, ranging in magnitude from 5.0 to 9.9, have been recorded in the year up to 19 June. The total number of earthquakes recorded globally for the entire of 2007 was 2,270.
The number of earthquakes ranging from 5.0 magnitude to 7.9 magnitude is rising. In particular there has been a sharp rise during the past 12 years of moderate earthquakes in the range of 5.0 to 6.9.
Just in the Last Week
July 15, 2011 – ICELAND – An eruption has occurred at another volcano in Iceland. The glacial burst occurred from Köldukvíslarjökull, a part of Vatnajökull in southeast Iceland. The flood flowed down the Svedja river into Hágöngulón lagoon and Lake Thórisvatn. A flood has never been recorded at this part of the glacier before. – Volcano Live
July 14, 2011 – LONDON – Teacups rattled at breakfast-time this morning as an earthquake struck the English Channel. “It felt as if a big lorry had gone by in a hurry, except we don’t have lorries go through here.” The quake’s epicenter was around 53 miles (85 km) southeast of Portsmouth, Hampshire, at a depth of 10 km, the BGS said. “This is the largest earthquake within 25 km (16 miles) since a magnitude 4.5 event in the year 1734.” – Daily Mail
July 14, 2011 – JAKARTA – An Indonesian volcano erupted late Thursday, spewing rocks, lava and ash hundreds of meters into the air, an official said, three days after its alert status was raised to the highest level. People live within the evacuation zone. “There was a big eruption around 10:31pm local time (1531 GMT Thursday), which saw ash, sand and rocks thrown 1,500 metres (4,800 feet) into the air,” government volcanologist Kristianto told AFP.
July 14, 2011 – VANUATU – Vanuatu’s Ambae volcano has begun spewing volcanic gases, and residents could be forced to evacuate part of the island. Volcanologist Sylvain Todman, from the Vanuatu Geohazards Observatory, told Pacific Beat they were watching the situation very closely. “At the moment we have sporadic explosions but the explosions are getting bigger and bigger every time,” he said. – Australia Network News
July 11, 2011 – INDONESIA – Around 28,000 people live within the evacuation zone but only “hundreds” will be moved today. The Indonesian archipelago has dozens of active volcanoes and straddles major tectonic fault lines known as the Ring of Fire between the Pacific and Indian oceans. – News.com
July 11, 2011 – CHILE – Clouds of ash spewing from Chile’s Puyehue volcano have grounded flights at airports again. The Puyehue has been causing air travel mayhem since it rumbled back to life on June 4 for the first time in five decades, belching into the air a huge volume of dust and ash. Flights across South America – including hubs in Montevideo, Chile’s capital city Santiago and southern Brazil – have been hard hit as ash clouds swept around the southern hemisphere to linger over Australia and New Zealand. – SMH.com
July 9, 2011 – SICILY – A southern Italian airport was on Saturday closed due to ash from Mount Etna, forcing traffic to be diverted to Palermo, the ANSA news agency said. Catania airport on the east coast of the island of Sicily. The last eruption was in May. A massive flood of meltwater from Iceland’s Myrdalsjoekull glacier, meanwhile, has raised fears of an eruption from the powerful Katla volcano there. – MSN
Asking the Right Questions
All of these volcanoes are blowing right now as the trend continues toward increasing volcanic and seismic activity. The earth seems to be losing part of its structural integrity at the same time that our climate is changing dramatically. It is all a coincidence? No one could have predicted what is happening now right? Is this all a coincidence or is there a very rational reason for all of this that some people have known for a long while?
There is a Pentagon document from seven years ago that predicted abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries scramble to secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. Climate change “should be elevated beyond a scientific debate to a U.S. national security concern”, say the authors, Peter Schwartz, CIA consultant and former head of planning at Royal Dutch/Shell Group, and Doug Randall of the California-based Global Business Network. An imminent scenario of catastrophic climate change is “plausible and would challenge United States national security in ways that should be considered immediately,” they conclude.
The report was commissioned by influential Pentagon defense adviser Andrew Marshall, who has held considerable sway on U.S. military thinking over the past three decades. The report also said mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism; say the few experts privy to its contents. “Disruption and conflict will be endemic features of life,” concludes the Pentagon analysis. “Once again, warfare would define human life.”
Physicist Jerry Mitrovica and Allessandro Forte of the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris use numerical simulations to show the connection between Earth’s changing orbit and the gravitational effects of other bodies in the Solar System, particularly Jupiter and Saturn. “We’re showing for the first time that changes in the Earth’s shape, when coupled with the gravitational effects from other planets, can produce large changes in the Earth’s climate,” Mitrovica says.
Astronomy & Astrophysics is publishing numerical simulations of the long-term evolution of Ceres and Vesta, which are the largest bodies in the asteroid belt, between Mars and Jupiter. Ceres is 6000 times less massive than the Earth and almost 80 times less massive than our Moon. Vesta is almost four times less massive than Ceres. These two minor bodies are found to affect their large neighbors and, in particular, the Earth in a way that had not been anticipated. This is shown in the new astronomical computations released by Jacques Laskar from Paris Observatory and his colleagues. Although small, Ceres and Vesta gravitationally interact together and with the other planets of the Solar System.
I have seen new videos from both north and south poles further strengthening the case for a large shift in the angle of the earth relative to the sun and stars. It seems like there is no doubt that our planet has shifted its tilt and this in part is having a dramatic effect on our weather, especially in the Arctic Circle. But what has caused this change, Obama’s bad breath or the American HARRP equipment?
I listened to radio show with a man who claims to have participated in viewing images from the Hubble telescope and he said that scientists have known about Elenin or of an outer planet since the 50s and said the story showed up ages ago on the cover of Popular Science or Popular Mechanics magazine.
I even saw a video of a movie that was made a few years ago that sported and ELE event (Extinction Level Event) and the film sported a black American president. How they found an astronomer who had the ELE letters in his name years later to discover the comet in December of 2010 is beyond my imagination.
In today’s news we see that the stage is being set for a massive heat wave to develop into next week as a large area of high pressure is anticipated to circulate hot and humid air over much of the central and eastern U.S.,” the National Weather Service warned.
In the thick of the heat wave is Oklahoma where Gov. Mary Fallin asked Oklahomans to pray for rain this Sunday. Above is the second video I have shown from the Arctic region suggesting that the tilt of the earth has changed bringing more sun not only the top of the world but also to the northern latitudes who are also seeing dramatic climate change. I agree with the governor, there’s never been a better time than now to pray. Many Americans might die from the heat.
We really are not sure what is going on though we can just look at the sheer volume of information that is screaming at us. We do not know if the earth is really warming or cooling as a whole but we do know that record breaking cold and heat are occurring simultaneously. I still believe the overall pattern is global cooling because of a quiet sun. I think the southern hemisphere is cooling more than the north but certain parts of the north are showing record cooling while others heating. I would say more of the heat in the oceans is now coming from intense undersea volcanic activity and of course we have increasing blocking of sunlight from pollution and volcanic ash circling the globe.
We see this type of pattern today playing out in China:
July 15, 2011 – SICHUAN, CHINA – A rare scene of drifting snow in July appeared on the Zheduo Mountain, Kangding County, Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Sichuan Province, while people in many other places were suffering from hot summer. The temperature of Zheduo Mountain was below zero centigrade degree on Wednesday. – CCTV
I am taking an educated guess that the heat and drought being experienced in the United States right now is connected with events in the Arctic Circle. As our magnetic field moves south seems like our earth is moving with it and we now have a planet whose north pole is facing more directly into the sun. So the northern hemisphere will super heat, yet if at the same time the Gulf current stalls, it will still be record cold for England and other parts of Europe.
Now the question comes why is our northern magnetic pole rushing toward Siberia to the south at over 40 miles a year? Does that have anything to do with an incoming celestial object whose name starts with the letters ELE?
