Maybe they are so stressed and no sleep they cant think right?...Who knows... Why is our usgs not seeing this??...If this IS gonna erupt BIG they need to tell the people whats happening so they can get out of there....Everything happening there is just so tragic beyond words....

Probably because humanity has never witnessed such a major plate shift all at once, and they are refusing to wrap their heads around the implications of the idea.

If that happened, the tsunami alone would be bigger than anything previously imagined. Only a huge asteroid could create something as big or bigger. The thing could be a mile high. The earthquake alone could be enough to kill millions it would be so intense. And as to the right side of the pacific plate and all of North America, we would not fare much better. People have previously talked about California being sunk into the sea, and this could happen- but because of the incredible tsunami in this case. And there would be more than one of the apocalyptic waves, each reaching farther and farther inland, as much as 100 km more progressively with each wave. If there were just four of those waves, anyone living west of Idaho, Utah and New Mexico is likely dead. Mexico? Nearly completely destroyed. Central America? Gone. South America? Brazil would be about all that would be left, if they are lucky.

It is a big concept. Too big.

And reading an article like this just makes me wonder all the more if a major plate movement is imminent:
Scientists Sound The Alarm- Mysterious Cracks Appear Across the Planet

This could be it for all of us, not just Japan. Japan may be just the first in a long chain of events due to happen.

I know there is no way to predict Earth Quakes...
But you have stared at enough graphs and you seem to know what your talking about..
Do you think that you could possibly know a time frame for the possibility of this occurring?

Yep. Like I said, no more action at that spot. This post was all about scaremongering.

The only accurate thing was the word 'could' which is like 'might'

Gold price 'might' fall
Aliens 'might' exist
Ron Weinland 'might' be right (actually not he can't....)
The Madras fault 'might' release
I 'might' win lotto tommorrow

If a major plate shift were to happen, what effect would that have on global tectonic stability?, I mean, would the shockwaves destabilise the entire system. All I can think of is hundreds of Flood Basalts happening all over the world. Terrifying thought.

Yet these quakes over the past several days are or seem to be moving towards this subduction zone TA has been referring too. Also remember it could happen today tomorrow or in a year or longer. I don't believe scaremongering is going on here. Just a guy sharing observations...

You just never stop with the doomsday scenarios, do you?

You do realize that such thoughts attract the energy to cause such disasters?

I'm sorry but I'm getting tired of reading these scenarios in every thread about Japan and/or earthquakes.

So I was watching this youtube video about crystal skulls last night (the guy may be slightly crazy?) however he mentioned where we are on the galactic spin (galaxy alignment - something already mentioned by others) and here he is in this video/recording (posted 2009) predicting major weather/earth events around 2012 including (at 8 minutes): "we should be very, very careful and protect ourselves from a release of radioactivity that could take place if any of these earth changes occur where there is a nuclear plant". Well that's happening now for sure!

No this thread was about the key earthquake that Japanese authorities had better take notice of, as a sign that the lower subduction zone is becoming active. It is you who have nothing to argue the point with. How could you? You don't even understand the OP!

In fact, if you think about it and look at the pic in the OP, and then look at the 6+ that happened right on the western corner of the lower subduction zone, there couldn't have been a better place for that to occur to reinforce what I've been saying for a week now. Of all the places that quake could of happened, it happened there. In tandem with the theory that there could be an impending plate move. It is exactly what one would expect to see if such a thing were going to happen, among other things.

NOTICE: This is the last trivial, meaningless, pointless, BS post I respond to.

To others that have something other than drivel to say, and that pertain directly to the topic, I am all ears.

WOW,this could be it for humanity....I just hope we do not suffer and its quick for ALL of us if it is the case....Thank you for all the updates and keeping us informed i really appreciate what you are doing and i am learning alot, maybe to much for my own good...Blessing to us all.

Oh really? there's still plenty of action there.They just had a 5.0 54 min ago.As someone else just said he is not scaremongering he is giving accurate info that many of us appreciate..You do not have to read these threads.

Hello Toni,

Thank you!

Please do spread the word. I firmly believe that knowledge is power. The more people information is given to, the better off we are as a society.


You're welcome URB!


Okay I just posted here...

Major Fish Kill in California- Billions of Dead Fish!

Yes people have the right to know. Just thought I'd ask you first just in case you didn't want to be associated with a certain thread or something.

Well, it's not just the quakes you are seeing on the USGS and global incident maps. There are indeed smaller quakes not shown occurring right on the southwestern outline of the NA plate. Here is just one 2.3:

Edit: that was the one I meant, sorry, had many tabs open.

Here is another 3.2
www.jma.go.jp...

And there are others, if you start looking at their data.
But they classify them as simple aftershocks of the 6+. Maybe they are. Each bigger one will have it's own aftershocks but it is the locations of the bigger ones on the outlines of NA plate that concern me.

Why are they not showing all of them on the map i have?...I see they are showing all the small ones in ca.where i live.....Is it because they do not have room for all of them?....I know you have the gee what ever that is and you see all the smaller ones on that.

There is an interesting artilce in the Feb 18 edition of Science, I don't have the full article in digital format but this is the abstract..



Laboratory and theoretical studies suggest that earthquakes are preceded by a phase of developing slip instability in which the fault slips slowly before accelerating to dynamic rupture. We report here that one of the best-recorded large earthquakes to date, the 1999 moment magnitude (Mw) 7.6 Izmit (Turkey) earthquake, was preceded by a seismic signal of long duration that originated from the hypocenter. The signal consisted of a succession of repetitive seismic bursts, accelerating with time, and increased low-frequency seismic noise. These observations show that the earthquake was preceded for 44 minutes by a phase of slow slip occurring at the base of the brittle crust. This slip accelerated slowly initially, and then rapidly accelerated in the 2 minutes preceding the earthquake.

Perhaps we should be on the look out for symptoms such as those outlined above.
