It always made more sense to me the earth expanding idea which I had thought alone and then when I looked on the net several others had thought of it as well long time before. I was thinking that even the fact so big animals used to live on earth (which means smaller gravitational powers allowing the body to grow more) is enough hint that we dont get exactly how our earth works. Instead of thinking a pool of lava and tectonic plates swiming on it, makes more sense that gradual growing can cause the quakes and the openings.
It appears that the loss of such pressure below the New Madrid fault, because of the 'superwell' that was drilled, could cause a massive chain reaction in the existing plates that lie beneath the US.
Ok bear with me. Because this is a crude representation...by an amateur. I'm not sure what to make of this but here's my un-educated guess: Take a brownie pan and set it aside. Now section off the pan with brownies. (baking the brownies is key here) Carve the middle of the pan in a 2" straight line down the center, and enjoy...
Take milk or another substance and fill the center section you created to the borders. Place a thin graham cracker pie crust on top and form it so it covers the entire pan over the brownies. Drain the milk. Obviously there's no extreme rapid pressure here, but it should do the trick. Does the pie crust collapse into the crevice you once had filled with milk? I bet it does.
That is interesting though... with Yellowstone already showing signs of erupting, a pressure increase might be the tipping point...
I have been looking for quakes that are slowly occuring in areas that are not normal in which new fissures can occur. I do feel what is happening now is a weakening of these location right now and when the big one comes it will all go. I believe what you are showing on the map is what will be after the ELV occurs Mid-Atlantic Ridge first Brazil to Ridge then "the event" Africa at least 23 Countries in hump area some Italy, Portugal, Spain France, England etc.
If the double connecting large quakes occur off Brazil it is only a matter of maybe several weeks before the largest ever recorded P-WAVE in history will be recorded as it is then the big event will occur.
