Tectonic Plates Collapsing
On January 17, 2011, it was reported that the 17,500 Islands Nation of Indonesia was flooding. Here on the Islands of Java, the largest regions of the world’s fourth most populous country, and the largest population of Muslims in the world. This flooding would not seem unusual butexperts there reported that there was no reason for the flooding that would account for the submergence of such a large populous area along the sea coastline.

really?? people aren't here to be graded.. no need to be rude to people trying to give information..
OP.. thanks for the link!! going to read it now..
The losses were astronomical. Over 17 million acres of Pakistan’s prime fertile crop land along the Indus River was submerged. Over 200,000 livestock were killed. Not only was the 2010 crop season destroyed, but for most farmers, they were not able to plant new seed for the fall planting deadline suggesting that massive loss of food production for the 2011 agricultural season would bring increase catastrophic losses.
During the normally scheduled and computer programmed refresh cycle, the island of Java in Indonesia was re-imaged by Google satellite very recently, since the sinking in Java started. A 20 foot elevation loss is evident, absolutely. Other parts of Indonesia, and Australia, show no flooding and are still operating with older Google satellite images. But this was a gift, as it proves a media cover-up. This Issue 225 is going out to those subscribers who can accept a newsletter with graphics included. Please save these graphics and post them on message boards and share them with your friends. The media in Indonesia is utterly suppressing this news, in cooperation with media outlets elsewhere. This is not drainage from flooded rivers, not a temporary wave striking some part of the coastline. This is sinking. The depth is consistently 20 feet, on all side of Java. In an attempt to bury this information, I may be instructed to not use Google Satellite images in my newsletter. So its out the door early this morning in an addendum newsletter. The Internet can overcome a media blackout, as Tiananman Square showed. Get the word out, please, in many places. Start a fire.
With hot toxic mud continuing to gush from a gas well in East Java, the surface of the affected land has been sinking, changing its physical characteristics and making it unsuitable for a residential area, experts say. Veteran geologist Andang Bachtiar said the land’s “subsidence” actually began several days after the mudflow started May 29 in Porong, Sidoarjo.

TECTONIC PLATES COLLAPSING UNDER PAKASTAN AND INDONISIA
The intra-oceanic Kohistan island arc was initiated during the Cretaceous as a result of northward movement of the Indian Plate. The conventional assertion that the arc was erected above a north-dipping subduction zone has been challenged by an alternative hypothesis, which suggests that the arc was built above a south-dipping subduction zone. This hypothesis is based partly on the apparent presence of a 'Dupal' signature in mafic rocks of the arc, and partly on the occurrence of boninites exposed in the northern part of the arc. The 'Dupal' signature, with enhanced levels of radiogenic lead, is found only in rocks extracted from the mantle in equatorial regions. However, new radiogenic isotope data, presented here, suggest that the isotopic signature of the mafic volcanic rocks of the juvenile arc, rather than being 'Dupal'-type, is a function of fluids derived from subduction and dehydration of sea-floor sediments. Boninitic volcanic rocks in the Kohistan arc form a volumetrically minor part of a compositionally diverse sequence in the northern part of the arc. Boninites and high-Mg andesites are found mostly, but not exclusively, in the fore-arc region, and evidence is accumulating that these may also be erupted into back-arc regions. Sedimentological and geochemical data suggest the Kohistan boninites to have been erupted into a short-lived back-arc basin. Both the eruption of boninites into the back-arc and the lack of a 'Dupal' signature would be consistent with northward subduction beneath Kohistan, although the latitude at which the arc was initiated remains unresolved.
