I think trying to debunk HAARP.
I live in Kentuckian (the Louisville Metro Area) and remember when I was in, 6th or 7th grade we had lots of quake warnings and drills because of the New Madrid. We had one quake in that time frame (this is 1984-85) and it was small but scared the snot out of us.
I hope this thing does not go off anytime soon!
Electromagnetic scalar weapons that can artificially manipulate the environment could be responsible for the mass die offs. We know for a fact that over a decade ago the U.S. Military Industrial Complex was aware of and involved in the testing of such technology.

Why have you not cited sources for the historical information, OP? It may be nitpicking, but I (personally) prefer anything being touted as truth, even regarding something as well known as New Madrid, to be flanked by sources. It lends credibility to the author...

Does a temperature of 95 degrees F at the New Madrid Fault feel like 105 anywhere else?
You really lost me on "8.0 will feel like 9.5 anywhere else". This just makes no sense to me. The richter scale assigns a number to quantify the amount of siesmic energy released by a quake. Given how much more powerful a 9.5 is than an 8.0, it's simply impossible for one to "feel" like the other, regardless of circumstance.
Look, a 9.0 is ten times more powerful than an 8.0. A 9.5 is a little over three times as powerful as a 9.0.
So what you're saying is that an earthquake at the New Madrid is going to feel more than 30 times more powerful than a quake of the same magnitude anywhere else?
Again, I'm not trying to downplay the danger the New Madrid poses, I've lost family in an earthquake, so it's a big deal to me. It's just that that one particular statement goes a long way in sensationalizing the rest of your post.
