I know there has been talk about a California earthquake being set off by the earthquake in Japan. Live Science released an article that dismisses the
opinions of non-scientists on the subject, and asserts that there is no risk of a California earthquake as a result of the Japan earthquake. Here are
two snippets from the article.
"An unfounded scientific assertion by a nonscientist has swept across the Web like a tsunami over the past few days."
"There is no evidence for a connection between all of the Pacific Rim earthquakes," Nathan Bangs, a geophysicist who studies tectonic processes at the
University of Texas Institute for Geophysics, told Life's Little Mysteries. "I don't know what the basis is for the statements and implications in the
Newsweek article, but there is no evidence that there is a link."
I am not sure if this report is legitimate or if its disinformation, but it is out there, nonetheless. I just thought I would share this and see what
everyone's opinions are on this. I cannot have one because I know very little about said subjet matter.
Here is the link to the original article:
