I'm sorry, I didn't want to write this.
You may remember that I said if I had Scott Ausbrook's job, I'd have already been fired.
If you notice Jim Berkland was with the USGS, but is no longer. His ideas were outside the mainstream consensus.
I agree with him completely about the ground water tides. I independantly came to the came conclusion. I researched everything I could find on the
moon, and groundwater. The evidence was there but really thin. I hadn't even heard of Jim Berkland. I somehow missed his research in the USGS and
other official studies. That's because he wasn't there to be found. It wasn't until a member on the Yellowstone thread said that my ideas were
inline with Jim Berkland. I didn't even think he was a real geologist at first. I thought he was just another one of us, out here on the fringe, with
an alternative view. No, he was real. A real geologist. He got a degree. And he wasn't the only one I found as I researched. There are the
vulcanologists I mentioned. But these people are sidelined because the cause and effect is subtle, and will only be confirmed after mountains of data
over a long time can be studied. And crammed into a super-computer. It's a statistical phenomenon. And it is an ongoing process, so you can't just
stop the ball from spinning and say there it is.
I'll post an "expert" who says the supermoon is nothing to worry about and it had nothing to do with Japan. So you can ignore all my ideas. Since
I'm no expert. He said that because it happened before the "supermoon", when tides were low, it means it had absolutely nothing to do with it.
There you go. He's not thinking of it as a cycle. He is dividing up the lunar cycle and pointing to a particular place in time and space and says
that since there is a delay, well then, there's no connection.
The earthquakes do not always falls precisely at midnight when the clock is chiming.
The avalanche doesn't fall immediately after a large sound wave hits it. It trembles first.
Sometimes the earthquake doesn't happen when the moon is pulling the water up, sometimes the earthquakes happen when the moom lets go. When the tidal
pressures are their greatest, this may lock up faults. And in different areas, the pressure may unlock the fault. The same force can have two
outcomes. When the moon releases it's grips, and the water and faults return to a more normal state, and as the water has carved new channels and
there is back pressure, then this would provide a change to destablize the fault which will lead to an earthquake.
Ug. I just had to say that and get it out. There is no elegant or easy way of explaining this ongoing process. It's fundamental and complicated. For
thousands of years, humans have struggeled to understand the tides.
That's why I just like saying the moon is a pump. Easy to figure out. It pumping and the earth is expanding and contracting and it's like squeezing
a ball. Old rubber balls develope cracks. Take one in your hand and squeeze it and observe.
Today on Japanese televison a geology expert said that the quake today was not related to the 9.0, and it was an isolated incident. And that nothing
is happening at Mt. Fuji. Wow. That's confidence. He's saying that after a gigantic earthquake with hundreds of aftershocks, after the entire
island was moved several meters, and after the earth's axis was altered. There's no connection people. None at all. That's the problem with too
They can't study the forest because their noses are so close to the truck of the first tree they encountered, all they see is bark. Wait til they
figure out the tree has branches and leaves as well.
