the New Madrid Fault Zone, it keeps getting brought up in Government Emergency Scenerios.
Probably because so many Government agents spend so much time on ATS
However, seriously have you watched Gasland yet? If you have not done so then I suggest in all seriousness that you do so.
In relation to Gasland you might be interested to know that it is being removed from the Internet rapidly. My other half collects documentary films on
various subjects and I asked her to find Gasland for me. She did eventually with French subtitles and even on that site it stated that the film was
likely to be zapped any minute - even though the film filename was not gasland. On all the sites she goes on, most of which have several copies, they
have ALL been removed.
You may consider that fracking is not a problem, or rather the problem, but if there was nothing to hide why remove all the films. My Mrs said even
the film companies are not normally this zealous. She can usually find several copies of films that have been removed fro other sites because of
Fracking IS a problem, of that there is NO doubt as that horror movie shows. It is a possibility that something is building for 'the big one' but that
does not detract from the problem in hand.
Every earthquake is a split somewhere for one of two reasons. (1) A fault slips or (2) The strata are moved by some external force. This may be a very
simple explanation but both are possible here. Further back in this thread I made reference to the
being subducted which some 'scientists' think may be what causes the
earthquakes in the New Madrid area. This could lead to clusters of earthquakes as we see in other 'subduction' zones. Here is some
Another school of thought says that the New Madrid zone may be tectonically 'dead' in effect and the seismicity is residual.

possibility. This would mean that the New Madrid may never have another big earthquake.
That deals with faults. Intrusions next. Volcanic intrusions. Very unlikely. I am not saying impossible but there would have been many more signs well
before this an to be honest it is very unlikely to affect such a small area. In addition GPS measurements would show the bulge as would
. It would be nice to get our hands on either
BUT as this article
explains ground water can also have this effect.
Pressure, as in pressurised water, as in disposal wells could also do this, and I see no sensible explanation that would suggest that disposal
injection does and production injection does not. This is why for my part at present on the current information to hand I think this is caused by gas
PROBLEM: Quakes in both the Yellowstone area and the Arkansas areas are being misreported or changed. There's a SOLUTION to the
For this thread let us leave Yellowstone out. The misreporting has been explained there. For Arkansas that answer does not hold good as far as I can
see. Having said that in every area of the world earthquakes are downgraded, upgraded, removed and sometimes even split into two. Seismology is NOT
precise. It cannot be. A signal of very low frequency has to travel miles, hundreds of miles or thousands of miles before being registered on three or
more seismographs before it can be registered as an earthquake. If it only shows on two it did not happen. Frankly i never cease to be amazed that I
can sit here in Ireland 'looking' at earthquakes that happened the other side of the world.
Have you considered that 200 years ago this year the people who were affected by the first two of the quakes probably had no idea of what was coming.
In effect, that is the same as I believe you to be suggesting, that these are being hidden. If you go to look at the helicorders can you imagine how
difficult it would be to physically remove the trace from anything up to sixty recorders on a stronger quake? In addition to that the USGS know that
many people watch GEE, or like me use Vase. There are way too many eyes out there for them to try and fool us. You may not be aware of this but I can
tell you for a fact that the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory get twitchy when their equipment is not available not just because they cannot see but
because they also know that we cannot and they will start getting emails. That was a statement to me by the head of the YVO around a year ago.
