...I agree with you and your friend's father,
and have from the getgo. ...The planet "rings like a bell" and resonates long after a major
quake, so a flurry of quakes is predictable and as you say, another mag +8 within a year can be expected.
We agree on this, and really do NOT need to discuss it further. Sorry if there has been some misunderstanding.
But, a number of issues do remain open for discussion:
1. Increase in EQ activity, beginning 30 years ago.
You don't have the data and can't comment - I understand and accept that. But the issue remains.
2. Relative impacts of earthquakes, compared to 30 years ago.
a. Even small quakes do more damage than they used to
…the number and severity of
earthquakes appear to have increased over the last 30 years ……The U.S. Geological Survey says there were 1,085 major earthquakes in the
1980s. This increased in the 1990s by about 50 per cent to 1,492 and to 1,611 from 2000 to 2009. …There has been also a noticeable increase in the
sort of extreme quakes that hit Japan.
, especially when they're near nuclear power plants - and the whole world will
be affected by the resulting radioactive fallout
The past 30 years has seen a proliferation of nuclear power plants, notably in Japan. In addition,
There has been also a noticeable
increase in the sort of extreme quakes that hit Japan.
A recipe for disaster, methinks. And the reason for my focus on quakes near Fukushima (roughly 37N, 140E) where the nuclear plants already were
damaged by the March 11 quake.
Several mag +5 and +6 earthquakes have occurred at and near Fukushima since March 11 - it's inconceivable that the initial damage hasn't been
aggravated, or that the situation hasn't deteriorated significantly.
An admission that the core may have been damaged (Fukushima, reactor 3) finally came this morning from Japan's nuclear and industrial safety agency
official, Hidehiko Nishiyama. Reported by the Daily Mail:
Three 'Fukushima Fifty' workers taken to hospital were exposed to radiation 10,000 times the safety maximum
b. Industrial activity has modified the earth's crust substantially in the past 30 years - arguably destabilizing the planet's geophysical
Geomagnetic activity may be the key here - zones and lines that were historically conductive or non-conductive have been disrupted and/or modified.
3. Seismic Triggers.
Again, my focus is geomagnetic activity - from cosmic and solar sources, the ELF and ULF generated by earthquakes themselves and possibly, downstream
effects from HAARP.
Our observations of earthquake swarms following a major quake supports the theory that quakes trigger quakes. The question remains whether or not the
phenomenon results solely from plates "adjusting," or from a combination of factors including geomagnetic forces.
I started this thread with the observation:

There have been 16 quakes over 5.0M in the past 14 hours of Sunday March 20, compared with 9 on Saturday the 19th; 15 on Friday the 18th; and 11 on
Thursday the 17th - according to the European-Meditteranean
Even assuming that reports were censored on March 19 to defer panic about the Super Moon, earthquake activity seems to be accelerating suddenly and
Clearly, activity following the March 11 quake was diminishing before
the Super Moon - then it picked up again, fairly dramatically.
The timing alone suggests a relationship.
