According to the experts, finally they admit that earthquakes are up more than usual, way more than usual. A new study finds that earthquakes have doubled this year in the first quarter, and over the past couple of months, simple observation shows that the trend continues to escalate. There are many quakes occurring in strange places where they usually don't occur and there are high numbers of swarms in other areas, which include California and Oklahoma (fracking induced).

In the study, an official claims that because they can't explain why the rise in large quakes is happening, it's simply due to randomness, but I don't believe that. I, of course, am one who believes it is due to the rapid melt of land ice in the polar regions due to warming temperatures due to the increase in methane gas in our atmosphere causing a blanket-effect over the entire planet trapping the sun's heat. I said this over a year ago and now I say it again...earthquakes are on the rise as well as volcanoes and many other phenomenon.

Earthquakes double in first quarter of 2014



The average rate of big earthquakes — those larger than magnitude 7 — has been 10 per year since 1979, the study reports. That rate rose to 12.5 per year starting in 1992, and then jumped to 16.7 per year starting in 2010 — a 65 percent increase compared to the rate since 1979. This increase accelerated in the first three months of 2014 to more than double the average since 1979, the researchers report.

The rise in earthquakes is statistically similar to the results of flipping a coin, Parsons said: Sometimes heads or tails will repeat several times in a row, even though the process is random.

"Basically, we can't prove that what we saw during the first part of 2014, as well as since 2010, isn't simply a similar thing to getting six tails in a row," he said.

But Parsons said the statistical findings don't rule out the possibility that the largest earthquakes may trigger one another across great distances. Researchers may simply lack the data to understand such global "communication," he said.


How is ice melt affecting the earth's crust causing these dramatic increases in quakes, volcanoes, sinkholes and other land subsidence events? Here it is in a nutshell from a thread I authored over a year ago.




Now the big question remains; how are the earthquakes related to dangerous gases. This is a theory proposed a few years back in a book by James McGuire entitled Waking the Giant: How a changing climate triggers earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes, where the author states that the melting ice at the poles relieves pressure on the earth’s continental plates. The slightest pressure change will cause tectonic movement resulting in earthquakes. Basically, as the atmosphere heats up, we are experiencing a rapid thawing of Arctic ice. As the ice retreats, all that weight relieves pressure on the Earth’s crust which would naturally cause it to adjust.

According to an article on NPR.org the summer of 2012 saw the most dramatic ice melt in several thousand years. It literally smashed records. Of course there is always melt in the summer time, about half the ice, but the article points out three quarters of the ice melted this past summer. The previous record for ice melt was in 2007, also within the time frame of the rapid methane increase in the atmosphere. The additional ice melt this year was the size of Texas. That’s a lot of ice and a lot of weight on the continental plates.


Dangerous Gas Theory in relation to earthqaukes and increasee seismic activity

As ice retreats from the land, it relieves a lot of weight and as all that extra ice is added to the oceans, it adds a lot of weight and the continental shelves off the coasts are very thin, so you have relieved pressure and added pressure causing a lot of undeniable earth changes. A lot of these earthquakes are happening in places they usually don't occur such as the 4.0 that happened in Lebanon a few days ago. Or, the swarm of four 5.0 + quakes in Noatak, Alaska in recent months.

Earthquake swarm in Noatak, AK continues to puzzle scientists

This swarm is puzzling scientists because when a quake of this size occurs, it usually relieves the pressure at the plate boundaries, so when four of them occur in the same spot and nearly the same depth in three months, it means the pressure isn't relieving. These types of swarms only occur around volcanoes or geothermal hot spots. That isn't the case in Noatak. So, why isn't the pressure relieving?

Please read my Dangerous Gas theory thread to find out why this is happening. Climate change is happening and it's causing a lot of unexplained phenomenon. You're all arguing about the carbon dioxide and ignoring the real and most dangerous threat...methane!

Dangerous Gas may be cause of super-charged weather, earthquakes, volcanoes and more...

I'm sorry, I wrote this thread in my hotel room and I'm traveling today so I won't be able to respond for a few hours. Rez.

Of course, what the USGS tells you, you'd choose to believe. Coming from the agency that continues to down grade each and every quake to skew the numbers. Just this morning a 7.1 occurred in Mexico, immediately downgraded to a 6.9 by the USGS so that we have one less 7.0 + this year.

Immediately downgraded or updated because of more accurate readings?

Immediately downgraded. Why is it that most of these quakes are always downgraded by the USGS but not the other agencies?

Hi,
A genuine question if may, as I don't know much about the USGS.
What would they gain from downgrading earthquakes?
I'm assuming it's due to a political agenda?

Thanks 👍

That makes sense. I've noticed that the USGS seems to always downgrade most that come in above 5, yet the other monitoring stations not controlled by the US seldom get reduced by several points.
I've only been watching the data for about a years now, but it looks like the figures are being manipulated to minimize the strength of larger earthquakes.

The same agency that you claim are downgrading E.Q's also upgrade just as many, so what would the benefit be by upgrading?

There are definitely more earthquakes due to fracking. Also I believe the sun is in the process flipping it's magnetic field which also contributes to earthquakes. I don't buy the melting ice theory. Seem like a stretch.

I'm expecting one a week Tuesday.

You heard it here first.

Yes, because I believe that the governments know about these things I've written about and to prevent panic, they are trying to hide the truth from you. Everything I've written about over the past year and a half has continued to escalate from sinkholes, quakes, volcanoes, sky noise, and fires to the extreme weather and precipitation due to increased heat. It's all happening and the government knows and that's why, IMO, they are preparing for civil unrest with all the military build up within our borders, executive orders, and other actions...because when SHTF, they want to be able to control it the best they can. The quakes will continue to increase in frequency and intensity to the point it's no longer deniable, and when that day comes (sooner than later) the people will demand the answers that the government already knows.

Immediately, you say? That's funny, because I eyeballed the page for it the entire time, hitting refresh like a boss to see if it would go up or down for about 45 minutes after I posted it in the Quake Watch thread. That's not immediate, Rez, that's someone reviewing the data. GEOFON also has it as a 6.9, while EMSC has it at 7.0 still. Actually, feel free to sift through the EMSC's list of data providers, because the magnitude varies with them all.

I am in no way a representative so to get any definite answer best would be to ask direct but off the top my head I would say accuracy and staff to update figures.

If you are going to compare the USGS to others then make proper comparisons.

How large of a organization is the USGS compared to any other you want to compare with?

How much funding is available, how many staff, what are the procedures of each you are comparing when logging data?

How are the actual quakes detected and what and how many devices are used?

I only point this out because the only time "more earthquakes" or " more whatever disaster you choose" is increasing is pointed out is by a fear of unknown and border line doom porn propaganda to spread the ignorance of the one making the claims or to spread a fear so in the short future a new product could be sold to the ignorant to solve the so called issue or protect the buyer from the harmful effects of whatever it is they have a solution for.

Earthquakes been increasing has been around for a while now, it really increased with the Nibiru idea coming in full effect a few years ago.

Earthquakes increasing if compared from one year to another means really nothing other than one year had more than the other and cant really point to overall increase where ideas about the end of the world or whatever else gets thrown around in the debates about the increase of the earth shaking.

If they do then my point of being as accurate as possible maybe because they are a larger organization than the others some are comparing them too.

45 minutes is pretty much instantly when you have to consider that the people who are in charge of the numbers have to contact each other and get the story straight and agree to what it should be adjusted to. Anything that the US monitors is manipulated for some reason or another, to benefit someone. Just because we don't know why is not reason to think otherwise. They change the stats on everything from death by bee sting to dogs biting the mail man and everything in between.

Thanks for the explanation 👍

So the government are covering up as they prepare for civil unrest when the SHTF, so they're covering up for a good reason then?


Edit: I'm not being an ass, I'm just getting a cheap lowdown on what you've been saying for a couple of years.
Thanks again 👍 ⤴

Earthquakes in diverse places...wars and rumors of wars. These are not happening by chance. America is collapsing along with all of the "too big to fall" economies, and the 'safety-net' of geo-economic consolidation is almost ready to entangle us all. What do you think is going to happen?

Believe that Jesus died for our sins, and you will be prepared for what is coming. Do not ignore the symptoms of the world around us.

yep its the ice melt.

Over the winter, as polar vortices plunged the U.S. Midwest into weeks of unceasing cold, the icy covers of the Great Lakes started to make headlines. With almost 96 percent of Lake Superior's 32,000 miles encased in ice at the season's peak, tens of thousands of tourists flocked to the ice caves along the Wisconsin shoreline, suddenly accessible after four years of relatively warmer wintery conditions.

The thing is, all of that ice takes a long time to melt. As of April 10, 48 percent of the five lakes' 90,000-plus square miles were still covered in ice, down from a high of 92.2 percent on March 6 (note that constituted the highest levels recorded since 1979, when ice covered 94.7 percent of the lakes). Last year, only 38.4 percent of the lakes froze over, while in 2012 just 12.9 percent did - part of a four-year stint of below-average iciness.

And as the Great Lakes slowly lose their historically large ice covers over the next few months, the domino effects could include lingering cold water, delayed seasonal shifts, and huge jumps in water levels.

Already, the impact of this icy blockade can be felt. On March 25, five days after the official beginning of spring, the Soo Locks separating Lake Superior from the lower Great Lakes opened for the season. But after a long and harsh winter, Lake Superior's nearly 32,000 square miles were still nearly entirely covered in ice. It would be another 11 days before the first commercial vessel fought its way across Lake Superior - with the aid of several dedicated ice breakers - and down through the locks

If that's true, could you provide some backup to that claim. Could you even just post one original news story of a recent quake and then show the official USGS report on it that shows an upgrade, I would like to see it. None of the quakes I have taken notice to has ever been upgraded, not in this past year anyways, and if you can show me a few, then I'll eat my words. What I see is that nearly every quake, and I mean literally, every quake over 5+ has been downgraded from the original reports. But hey, maybe that's just me and I'm watching at the wrong times...
