In 1755 Portugal was one of the richest nations in the world.
Most of their wealth could be found in their capital, Lisbon. Besides gold there were paintings of the great artists like Rubens, , libraries with over 70.000 books.
Lots of documents and books about the countries they had (easily)conquered, about their very lucrative slavetrade etc. etc.

On Sunday 1 november 1755 at the time that 90% of Lisbon's population was in church, a terrible earthquake struck Portugal.

This quake was felt by people in Sweden.

40 Minutes after that the tsunami came.

And whatever still stood, was destroyed in a three day raging fire.

Days before the earthquake there had been reports in Spain about falling waterlevels, and a decrease of flowing in springs and fountains.

So maybe there are some signs we should heed.

Thank you for pointing out most importantly that these phenomena are not new. Some people SEEM to believe there have never been earthquakes before until the past 10 years, and start blaming things such as nibiru and the moon. The thing is we don't know for 100% certain.

Yes you are right, lots of people seem to think HAARP is an earthquake machine or weather manipulator, but there is no proof yet, to my knowledge, of such an audacious claim. It's hard to believe that on this huge planet that some people think we tiny people can control the weather and cause disasters.
