Let me start with the subject at hand- the earthquakes. The swarm may not be over. But it has definately stopped for the moment. It's been four days since a noticable earthquake. The last time there was a break this long was back from February 8th until February 13th. At that time, I was wondering if they had stopped injecting and were preforming a test. Then on the 13th I realized the quakes were coming back and that the activity was very vigorous and it seemed that there was going to be a major event. My urgency to write overwhelmed me because I found a study which explained that mid-continental quakes were very different from those on the coasts. I became convinced there was great danger unfolding in Arkansas. I just needed to warn anyone who'd listen. I'm so very glad that many did, and that the injection wells have stopped, and that the quakes are diminishing.

I guess I should clarify a few things. I am a man. I take no offence at being called a mom. I don't live in Arkansas. I just thought the people of Arkansas and those living in the Mississippi Region needed to be informed. There is a Erin Brochovich among us. Susan Frey has been in front and has been fighting in the trenches. I never got my hands dirty. There have been many here that have worked to help Susan and the others. I feel so bad for not keeping up on Facebook and I've even had to limit myself out here.

I only came out here yesterday because I was angry and needed to vent. Timothy Carr made me see red and I needed to rage against the stupidity of his comments.

I have no blog. I only write here on ATS. I do not comment on many threads. I stick to the Fragile Earth topics.
I've written on the Yellowstone thread, and most of what I wrote yesterday should have been written on my alternative thread.

I'm not fascinating. The truth is fascinating. I'm just a sinner who is trying to redeem himself. I'm just an angry man who would rather focus his rage on an injustice, rather than setting fire to everything around me.

Try not to encourage me. I deactivated my Facebook page because I couldn't cope. I feel guilty about my shortcomings. I accept this and I am content with my station. I could moan about mine own troubles, but I've already done that. At this point, it's unproductive.

So let's just stick to the quakes and the fight against fracking on this thread. If you really want to find out more about me personally, then you can go on this thread...

I will keep writing here, and if anyone has any questions I can answer, I'll do my best to provide some credible information.

Here's the most important part, I just checked, there are no earthquakes in Arkansas right now.

This really worries me, someone please checkout this satellite feed from Intellicast Weather Active Map::

Now, click "Overlays" and select following:

+Titan Storm Tracking
+Temperature Plots

Now slowly zoom in on Eastern Coast and tell me what in the cookie monster is that "line" of weather effects?!?

All I see is a big cold front. If you've paid attention in the last few months, we've had a lot of fronts that have looked like that, but a lot have been snow. Now it's Spring, so it's rain. If anyone else sees something different they can feel free to chime in.. but that's what I'm going with.

Misinterpretation of your purpose and intention, foot to mouth. Thanks for clarifying. Fading into the background.

There's no need to fade into the background. Everyone makes mistakes. At least you don't have your head up your...

There's one thing I'm glad is fading into the background. The swarm. This is day 5 of no activity.

The only reason I want to fade into the background is that I am manic. If I don't subdue my flame I will burn out.

It's not better to burn out, than fade away.
and fading away only leads to nothingness
It's about fueling the eternal flame.
Without setting the world ablaze.

I think it is a mistake to have children take refuge under their desks. The schools were not built to withstand earthquakes. In China, during the 2008 earthquake, buildings were the greatest danger. In the recent Japanese earthquake, the buildings withstood the earthquakes. Because they were built to code. The buildings ontop the faults in the Mississippi Region will not survive a major earthquake.

I can't say this is the sixth day without earthquakes. There seems to be some microquakes under 1.5M. I saw it late last night and wondered if it was going to develop into anything. It seems to be increasing at the moment. This may be just another cluster. And it may be just a minimal resettling of the fault. Even the last cluster had no quakes near 3M.

The curious element is the water. It rained yesterday in Arkansas. The water is percolating. This fault has very little to do with tetonic forces and is almost entirely related to liquids flowing through the soft soils.

I'm going to post two radio shows. The first one is on fracking. The site's player isn't working, you'll have to download the mp3 tag under the player.

The second is a group's attempt to drill down through the earth into the mantle. Notice the way the scientist describes the different types of rocks. And then he describes the soft rocks that oil guys have to drill through.

Oh, and in the fracking report, the industry's spokesperson is a damned liar. You don't know how much I hate lies.

Had to add. I thought the quakes were around the 1.5M range. But some of them are closer to 2M.

thanks for the links, and for keeping an eye on things here.

Last night, at about 10:05 , it sounded like something had exploded outside, and the lights flickered. I, along with everyone on this block, went outside to see if a house was on fire or a transformer had blown. But no smoke,no sirens,nothing. Thankfully,I had GEE up and saw the "blip". I`m not saying that the sound was a product of the "blip", just that it was odd that it happened at exactly the same time with none of the usual suspects being in evidence here. Just an observation and report.

QUITMAN, AR – A homeowner says her home near a natural gas well exploded and she is questioning the cause of the fire.

Homeowner Kimberly Glenn was in her kitchen with a friend and an infant Monday morning when her friend smelled smoke. Glenn says that her entire house was engulfed in flames within seconds afterward.

"[The smoke] was coming out of the light switch in the living room and [the friend] went over to open the front door and by that time the house was engulfed," says Glenn.

The Quitman Volunteer Fire Department responded, but was unable to save the house. Glenn, her friend, and the infant had to escape out of the back bedroom window. The firefighters said that the fire was caused by electrical problems and spread so quickly due to the wind. But there are other theories on how the fire spread so quickly.

Ron Hake used to live near the Glenn residence. One December, he noticed air coming up through one of the rear wells on his property. Hake called Southwestern Energy to test the water in the well, and found that natural gas was seeping into it.

"It’s very probable there's natural gas in a lot of these water wells," says Hake. He estimates the distance between his old house (the one which had been tested with natural gas in it) and the Glenn residence to be “less than a football field away.”

“All the gas . . . you never know. There could be a big pocket under our house. Or there was, we don't know. The gas company won't tell us anything," says Glenn. "I don't know what happened. We've never had any electrical problems in the house. It was just so fast. We went from house with everything to nothing."

All she remembers is hearing a few loud pops as she watched her home burn to the ground. "I got everybody out so that's all that matters."

The owner of the natural gas wells, Southwestern Energy, has yet to respond to Fox 16’s calls for comment on the incident.

Not cool at all!

I have checked all the local sources (Saline County) and haven`t found anything yet about the noise etc here last night. Something is just not right.

Hope none of this is upsetting Chili or the pups!

I would really like to know the exact address of the housefire. There are many wells to the south of Quitman.

Yeah I would too, but I don't know what the address is.

The closest info I could find on the House was Locust Street in Quitman, if that helps any.

they're baaaack! Just had a pretty good rumble here

posted on Apr, 6 2011 @ 09:42 PM
9:35.. good sized jolt and loud rumble. My flower bouquet (from my wedding) fell off of the book case. I was standing and was shook pretty good. Dogs scurried to me. We all knew it wasn't over!

USGS says it was a 3.6. I guessed about a 3.5. I was really close.. so close that my husband is laughing at me! haha

posted on Apr, 6 2011 @ 09:47 PM
Came up on e-quake as a 3.6

Sure wish they would stop.

Me too!

My compass shifted 45 degrees to the west during the quake.

Enough is enough!

I do too. I do too!!! Yes Chili started moving her babies again. At least they are getting too big for her to pick easily.
