From February 26 to 29 unprecedented levels of carbon monoxide were measured over the entire West Coast with peak levels exceeding 40.000 ppb!

This activity follows earlier unrest including a mini-tsunami on the coast of Washington State on January 16.

Officials claim that there is no reason for concern, but adding up the signals from nature, we better be prepared for large seismic movement in the area.

One possible time frame for a large seismic event is March 30th and the magnitude could be as high as or even exceeding magnitude 9.0

This is not fear mongering but merely an observation of planetary alignments. A similar line-up of planets in recent years has caused earthquakes with magnitudes ranging from 8 to 9.



Is this really "fear mongering" or something we should be concerned about?
Are carbon monoxide levels that exceed 40.000 ppb normal?

This theory is thrown out there from time to time, but if you listen to the Professionals, they'll tell you it's bunk.

First, there is simply no way an alignment of planets can cause an earthquake on Earth. It’s literally impossible. I’ve done the math on this before; the maximum combined gravity of all the planets under ideal conditions is still far less than the gravitational influence of the Moon on the Earth, and the Moon at very best has an extremely weak influence on earthquakes.

"Planetary alignments" have absolutely no effect on the likelihood of earthquakes, as David has pointed out above. That is ridiculous quack pseudoscience right there.

Secondly, CO release could be a precursor to an earthquake, but as yet not enough research has been done to show it is definitively is.

Finally, the elevated readings have been identified as an algorithmic error.


The Elevated Carbon Monoxide concentrations in the GEOS 5 products since February 25 of 2016 are incorrect. They are the consequence of unrealistic CO emissions computed by our biomass burning algorithm, which is based on satellite observation of fires… GMAO is working to correct this problem.

Fear mongering, plain and simple. If the guy spent as much time doing his due diligence of the facts as he spent on making this 20minute video, he would have realised it is nothing.

Yes, but "alignment of planets" is beside the point.
The high levels of carbon monoxide over the West Coast suggest major activity around the San Andreas fault line.

There were and are no "high levels of carbon monoxide over the west coast". It was a faulty reading.

They guy who made the video you referenced regularly makes earthquake predictions based on "planetary alignments". He is not a credible source for any information pertaining to earthquakes. He is not a seismologist, he is not a climate scientist. Next time go to the source.

Yeah I see "Snopes" has an article about the "faulty reading"



MPORTANT NOTICE: Elevated carbon monoxide (CO) concentrations over California in the GEOS-5 products since February 25, 2016, are incorrect. They are a consequence of unrealistic emissions derived from satellite observations of fires, which led to elevated concentrations of atmospheric CO (as well as other species).

NASA's EOS-Terra spacecraft entered safe mode on February 18, 2016, during an inclination adjustment maneuver. This caused the MODIS instrument to enter safe mode, with the nadir and space-view doors closed. When the Terra MODIS transitioned back to science mode on February 24, 2016, the operating temperatures for the SWIR and LWIR (Short-wave Infrared and Longwave infrared) focal planes have not yet stabilized. As a consequence, some data products have been severely degraded. This includes the "Fire Radiative Power" fields that are used by GEOS-5 to compute emissions of CO, CO2, and carbonaceous aerosols by biomass burning.

GMAO is working to correct this problem. The GEOS-5 analyses will be re-run from February 24, 2016, using only the EOS-Aqua MODIS data, in order to exclude the unrealistic CO emissions. EOS-Terra observations will be re-introduced once the instrument has stabilized.

Do you know what fire it saw that so completely skewed its CO analysis?

It wasn't the observation of a fire that skewed the monitor reading:

This caused the MODIS instrument to enter safe mode, with the nadir and space-view doors closed.

I just noticed that the author of the video has a website with a forecast track record list on it.

It appears that only 2 out of 37 of his predictions did not materialize (marked in grey).

Anyone else looked at this yet?

It also appears that the author has been mentioned in the media a couple of times as well BTW...

This is his prediction for the Nepal quake that killed close to 9 thousand people on the 25th of April last year:


Hoogerbeets claims he came within two days of predicting the Nepal earthquake, which killed nearly 8,800 people last month. An unedited Facebook post on his profile confirms he did predict an earthquake that same week.

q13fox.com...


I noticed that one video for an earthquake that he predicted in California is suspiciously missing:


The Dutch man who claims he came within days of predicting the devastating earthquake in Nepal is now predicting that a 8.8+ magnitude earthquake will strike California on Thursday at 4 p.m. PT. In a YouTube video that is going viral, Frank Hoogerbeets warns the planets will align on May 28 and cause a massive earthquake on America’s west coast.

While Hoogerbeets is no scientist, he did reportedly predict a big earthquake on the same week an earthquake rocked Nepal and killed over 8,000 people, according to an unedited Facebook post on his page.

I keep seeing references to the Galactic Federation, getting his info from spirits, etc.

One link down below appears to be about a message received from Yoda via channeling (I think) WTF over...

I don't know what to make of this guy...


Ashtar and the Galactic Federation. On January 7th, I came in contact with the Divine Vitality Center Eindhoven. There was a lecture on the Galactic Federation by Richard Hereijgers and a channeling with Ashtar by Trudy. Most of the people present, Frank Hoogerbeets (Ditrianum) among others, immediately felt like soul-family. Ashtar indeed let us know that most of us present had a connection with the Arcturians. The group was also surrounded by joyful Arcturians, who would occupy themselves with the healing of several physical ailments. Seated next to Trudy, who was channeling an Ashtar, I felt as if an entity coursed through me and wanted to speak via my being. But this was the first time in my life that I’d ever encountered such a thing and I was absolutely terrified, so I prevented this from happening.

www.multidimensional-life.com...

The drama in Apeldoorn is a punishment from God , according to a German sect . That's nonsense, of course! Indeed, there is another cogent explanation for what happened. Frank Hoogerbeets, genial New Age philosopher, arithmetic and alien representative, giving the impressive site of Tessa Sale (you know, the protege of the founder of the site ) on the basis of a complex calculation, a simple explanation for the tragedy .

I'm Yoda, Master of Life. Also, you can be if you want a Master of Life. Remember that you always have to try to maintain your balance. May the Force be with you on your journey!

I've now been investigating his site and claims. It's all rubbish.

He has left many failed predictions off this list; he does not include predictions he has made but has not created youtube videos for, and he has deleted at least four failed prediction videos. He also allows himself a one to two day window for any prediction to come true. Basically he says, "There will an earthquake on this day", and if one occurs within a couple days of his selected date, he considers it a hit. He rarely specifies locations, and when he does he is usually wrong.

He bases his predictions on the following: messages from "spirits", crop circle patterns, planetary alignments, and "Key Earth Dates". None of these are scientific and none of these have anything to do with seismology or earthquakes.

He is a crank who relies on confirmation bias and fear mongering to generate an income from his youtube channel.


It also appears that the author has been in the media a couple of times as well BTW...



I highly recommend interested people follow these links from murgatroid and see for themselves what a new age crank Frank Hoogerbeets is:



It appears that earthquakes do not occur at random but on precise moments in time, orchestrated by Divine Will. There is a Plan for the upliftment of the planet, whereby each earthquake re-models parts of it until a specific point in time when the cleansing and Ascension of planet Earth will start to take place.

The problem I have with his predictions is, even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while, or..... even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Since from what I can determine, there were approx. 143 earthquakes in 2015 at 6.0 or greater magnitude. It would be more than likely to be hit on any prediction method. Also, what happened to his predictions for Jan '15 thru mid Apr '14, then June '15 thru most of Sep '15? Because, we did have them. Anyway, missing months while quakes still happened, including the 2 in AK - 6.3 and 6.9 in July 2015.

So for 2015 predictions, he had only 20 predictions but there were 143 EQs.

For 2016, 16 predictions, 22 earthquakes.

In one of his videos, he takes claim to the phrase "side alignment". So what he's essentially saying is 'these planets will have some sort of alignment no matter what position they're in'. He also claims in his link that it is impossible to predict the location of an EQ but as you see by the list above, he includes Mag and location which appears deceptive to me.

Quite frankly, he could run a loop of the same vid every few days and be right much of the time.

No. It was a modelling error. A result of uncalibrated satellite data.

No ground stations showed anomalous emissions.

It's already established it was a faulty reading, please read the thread.
