Some of you know I have a mental illness. I wear it like an Albrotros. So, there is that burden. But at this particular time, my personal life is as if a runaway piece of space junk had a target on me. I'm not here for sympathy, or advice. It's just that writing is therapeutic. And this is the only place I write.

I'm calm now. Earlier I was so enraged I was going to lose my cool. So, I got one of my helpers to give me a tranquilzer. So, I'm not at my manic best. But, maybe I can keep a cool head and express some of my utter frustration here. Not the personal stuff- I've got elves for that. No, the larger stuff. Like the world on which I reside.

I am utterly frustrated by that as well.

Frack. I wanted to say the other f-word, and have and had my posts removed. It was "blank the frackers."

I can't be the only one who sees the full extent of the disaster unfolding before us. Many, many of you have done your research and have come to understand the practise, and the dangers that come with it. You are tuned in. But you know that in general, your friends and loved ones are oblivious to the reality. I'm sure you're trying to raise awareness, and that's great. There just needs to be more. And were running out of time.

There is a war against the EPA. The is a war against the people's of the world. I know people are begining to wake up to it. Occupy Wall Street. Finally. I've been raging against the machine my whole life. I would have led an army. I would have led a strike at a factory I where I worked. But I couldn't get anyone to walk with me. I wrote a letter to our company's President. Told him to go or get of the pot. The writing was already scratched on the bathroom stall. I just hated the uncertainty. If you're going to execute me, don't waste time on the prayer and get to the pressing the button or pulling the lever. We've lost our identies. Not me. But. In the old days, lots of men would have marched out to the picket lines and fought. Today- there's no individuals. No character. No conviciton. Sorry. But unless you rage as mancially as myself, you are a consumer. I consume. But I am not a shopper. I garden.

The most serious threat to life and health is going on hidden under our feet. It is happening in a boom. That's how oil works. It's a boom and bust system. It's like a gold rush. Firms have flooded states of the last few years and leased all the land they could get a hold of. Now they got the pumps starting reach full potential. The problems are already become evident. Yet, there still going full blast. Creeping closer and closer to Yelllowstone. Expanding and drilling in seimic areas. And injection waste. All of which is cause massive amounts of change within the dark and hidden crust. Maybe we'd be more pressed if the damage was visible. Well, no. Because we still pollute like absolute fools.

The list goes on and on where they intend to frack next.

If I want to you to carry away and keep any part of what have written here. I want you to understand this.

Fracking will cause massive earthquakes along the Mississippi.

The only two things I don't know are when exactly, and where exactly.

I know this is clique. I know you've heard it in movies and in documentaries. It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when.

We are now determining the when and nature is taking a back seat regarding the decision.
We will be the masters of our destiny.
There will be blood.

I would feel bad about being so morose. But I can't be ashamed. I am speaking the absolute truth and need you to hear what I am saying. I need you to believe it. If you believe it to be true, maybe you can convince another. And so on. Like that commercial from way back when.

I know this is just like the plot in a bad scifi movie. Problem is, the real thing is following the same script.


There's no voodoo here.

Just logic and applying the known science.


Because I do.

Nope, didn't know you have a mental seem pretty "sane" to me. Hold on...

what is sane, really?

Yeah brother, I have no idea what to do about the fracking. I mean....where do we start? Call the congressman? What can they do? Money talks..speaks.... much louder than I do.

I feel as though every thing they do is harming our race as humans and our Planet. How stupid can greed make you? I have no idea..never been where I had so much money that I felt like my fellow man deserved to die and so did the planet.

Just unreal really!!

Another EQ same epicenter, same magnitude (4) in Berkeley but this time was shorter, still almost throw away my glass from a table. Im living in Piedmont.
Its pretty interesting to think about all the friction forces and movements going on almost right beneath your feet, im actually fascinated about such thing.

You can join a group. There's one facebook. It's in my link. And the resource bibliography on Arkansas should have ideas. Ask them. They'll have lots of advice.

Bug your family. Bug your friends. Give them the facts. Tell them the story I'm trying to express. This story is foreseeable. It's evident. They need to know this will turn thier world upside down. It's real. It will be just as real as Japan. People will say who could have know this was going to happen. Me. I don't even like that fact. Because, once I know it, I need to share it. It's an obsession. If it helps any of you to dismiss my over the top rhetoric, then blame it on my quirks.

Do any of you realize how close Yellowstone came to erupting?
It came closer than anyone thinks.

And the dynamic is predictable and foreseeable.

Please indulge me while digress. This is how I see myself. Does anyone remember the Kolchack : The Night Stalker Television Series. It had Darren McGavin, the father from the Christmas Story. He was a reporter named Carl Kolchak. He always ended up chasing monsters. Mythical monsters. But these had come to life and nobody would ever believe him. Except the officials and authorities who wanted to keep things hushed up so as not to scare the public. Wow. Everyone on ATS should be aware of this series. It was paranoid before it became fashionalble. It had conspiracy. Coverup. And there was a mystery to be solved and investigated. That's what I'm doing. I've found a monster, I can't find enough people to believe me, and the big boys are covering up the danger.

This sucks. I picked a bad role model. Even though he was always right in the end. He took a beating. Solve the crime and stopped the evil forces that threaten us, (gas boys are like vampires sucking blood). But there was always a coverup and the truth hidden.

As battered and bruised as he was. He always had a good sized ego and was resigned to the fact that he knew. He knew the truth at how close the community had come to being victimized by evil. And had done his best to stop it.

If this horrible idea ever comes to pass. I will never take solace in knowing I was right.
To be honest, and I am, I'll problably crack.

You see, I'm obssessed with the little ones. They're so neglected. I know most of you are watching for bigger ones. Heck, there's obvious drama in them. But the little ones- heck, I've always loved the underdog- also tell a story.

Just an observation, because you could shut me up if you had me at gun point. The clustering effect is evident in the New Madrid. A few weeks back it was popping regularly. Then she's stopped. MamaJ, I think, already mentioned the bible belt. Why am I fixated on Arkansas? Because it's the buckle. The center that ties the bind.

States where over the last two years that have had swarms and coincidentally had fracking and injection.

Swarms. Texas

These are just the most obvious ones. Investigation always finds something in many case that could be an alternative to a nature quake. This is an alarming trend. And this is an experiment. Because the test has never tried. The trial is happening now. They are experimenting with the lives and health people without their consent.
We are absoultely controlled by the corporations. And they own the government. We are the 99%.

The one percent own the banks and corporations. They have a machine. The most important component in the machine is the energy. That energy is controlled by the gas boys. They own the weapons corporations which own the government. And you wonder why I say we've lost our individuality. To the one percent, we are only one thing, consumers. And for the moment, labour. Automation is never going to stop. Soon, they'll need less Chinese workers. The jobs will become more menial. You'll take what you can get. You lose more of your identity, and you become a servant. Subservient.

The oil guys own the banks.
If you want change. Then hit them where it hurts. Use less oil. Lots less if you can. Hurt them everytime you walk. Hurt them when you shut off a light and save power. You are consumers. You can make a difference by thinking about what you buy. And it's really, really, really tough. But do it. Convert. I have. It's lonely. But I did my best.

We must stop our fossil fuel addiction. You must be more than consumers. You must be activists. You must spread the word. We need to stop fracking. We need to stop the earthquakes.

We need to Occupy Houston Texas.

But first bug your local politician. Call them and express your views. Start there. Then follow the example of someone who's had this their backyard. Susan Frey. She got active and involved. And there are now class action law suits. The gas boys want this kept a dirty little secret they can sweep under the rug. They can't do that with earthquakes though. And they can't ignore the light of day that a day in court will bring.

We must stop the oil industry's dominance.
The consequences are almost unimaginable.

Deepest and most explosive underwater eruption ever seen happening near Samoa hotspot

October 20, 2011 – SAMOA – An underwater volcano bursting with glowing lava bubbles — the deepest active submarine eruption seen to date — is shedding light on how volcanism can impact deep-sea life and reshape the face of the planet. Submarine eruptions account for about three-quarters of all of Earth’s volcanism, but the overlying ocean and the sheer vastness of the seafloor makes detecting and observing them difficult. The only active submarine eruptions that scientists had seen and analyzed until now were at the volcano NW Rota-1, near the island of Guam in the western Pacific. Now researchers have witnessed the deepest active submarine eruption yet. The volcano in question, West Mata, lies near the islands of Fiji in the southwestern Pacific in the Lau Basin. Here, the rate of subduction — the process in which one massive tectonic plate dives under another, typically forming chains of volcanoes — is the highest on Earth, and the region hosts ample signs of recent submarine volcanism. “It was absolutely stunning and exciting, something we’d never seen on the seafloor before,” researcher Joseph Resing, an oceanographer at the University of Washington in Seattle, told OurAmazingPlanet. This submarine eruption is the deepest seen yet, about 2,200 feet (700 m) deeper than NW Rota-1. This was deeper than scientists had expected to see explosive eruptions. Water pressure goes up the further down you go, “so as pressure goes up, the ability of gas as it comes out of magma to cause explosions is diminished, and the thought was that you wouldn’t get explosive eruptions below about 1,000 meters (3,300 feet),” Resing said. Eruptions at centers of ocean floor spreading — where the majority of eruptions on Earth happen — generally seem to occur in relatively short episodes lasting hours to months, but West Mata appears to have erupted near continuously since it was first observed in 2008. This might be because magma is focused there, instead of being spread across many volcanoes at once. “However, this is a question that we don’t currently know the answer to,” Resing said. –OAP

No, "moving towards the spectre of". How can you move towards the spectrum of catastrophic geological upheavel? Does not make sense.

The opinion stuff, is, well? Just opinion. And a far-fetched one at that.

Aye, and 1000 times aye. Not only is that site a bunch of rabid scaremongers when they make factual errors that are provably wrong and you make a comment they comment is not allowed.

That tells me immediately that they have an agenda for scaremongering. I will not go anywhere near that site.

Magma plume thermal kineticism. Mm, what exactly is this? Well plumes are postulated to have been formed by cometary impact, so called I-plumes as opposed to hot spot plumes H-plumes. If you are interested in the possible large extinction events just before I was born (about 250 million years ago) then the PDF below you may find interesting.

Impact induced melting and the development of large igneous provinces

The title is the tell-tale here. IMPACT INDUCED MELTING or THERMAL KINETICISM.

I leave you dear readers to draw your own conclusions, it is annoying however that he does find good stuff. (Thank you Jane)

For some reason I got a vivid vision of huge rabid dogs with gnarly, bared, bloody teeth and big, wide red eyes standing triumphantly over the corpses of gullible sheep.

That vision is not too far off the mark, considering that's what I see in the mirror.

Look out for something East Anglia even if it is explosion at sea. 30 minutes ago all my windows rattled for 30 seconds and the doors banged like someone thumping on them. Very strange nothing reported yet. We still get WW2 bombs go off sometimes.
