Hey thanks for fixing the links! Great stuff btw. I Think your ideas are actually closer to reality than fiction! I hope i didn't come off sounding like a debunker or even worse a troll, I just wanted to say that in 93 there were some rumors about EQ's and flooding that scared a lot of folks. The sand spouts that happen regularly are sometimes considered a warning sign for EQ activity. They are actually pretty cool if you get to see one, its like a geyser made of sandy wet goo that spews as much at 20 feet in the air.
After reading all your info, it seems that you may be onto something that could become a SOMETHING! Keep up the good work.

We've seen videos of sink holes in the earth and water.
We know that large booms and continuous rumbling sounds may be due to the burning of coal under ground.
Do you think that these things also might cause earthquakes?

Review of winter 2010 in Europe
The winter of 2010 in Europe was much colder than expected. In many places seasonal temperatures dropped to the values not seen in decades. This cold winter was associated with an exceptionally strong negative phase of the North Atlantic Oscillation. The roles of solar activity, quasi-biennial oscillation of the stratospheric winds and other factors are discussed. Interestingly, temperatures in the European Arctic Seas were well above normal; however, they cannot be explained simply by the negative phase of the Arctic Oscillation, as in the NSIDC report. The unusual behavior of the climate system in the winter of 2010 raises a question about a possibility of a climate regime shift.
Unlike the forecast for North America, the forecast for Europe was incorrect. The mean winter (DJF) temperatures were expected to be close to the 1971-2000 average over much of Europe, but they turned out to be much colder (Fig. 1). Preliminary data shows that winter (DJF) temperature in Stockholm was the coldest since 1996, in Berlin since 1987, and in London since 1985. Provisional figures from the Met Office show that the mean UK temperature was the lowest since 1979. Warmer than normal temperatures were observed only in southeastern Europe.
The primary reason for the cold winter in Europe is unusually strong high-latitude blocking of the westerly flow in the atmosphere and, as a result, an extremely negative phase of the Arctic Oscillation (AO) and the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO). Figure 2 shows the time series of the winter (DJF) NAO index for the period 1824-2010. The time series was constructed using the data from the CPC since 1951, and prior to that from CRU. The CRU index was adjusted so that its mean and standard deviation correspond to those of the CPC index for the overlapping period 1951-2008. As seen in Fig. 2, in the winter of 2010 the value of the NAO index was the lowest on record.
What caused the unusual high-latitude blocking and a sharp decline in the AO/NAO indices? One factor that may have played a crucial role is solar activity, which was very low for a long period of time, delaying the beginning of the 24th solar cycle. This prolonged state of low solar activity better matches the 11-yr solar cycles in the late 19th – early 20th centuries, when the climate of the Northern Hemisphere was cold, than solar cycles in the more recent period.
When solar activity is low, there is a tendency for high-latitude blocking of the westerly winds. More specifically, for the period 1948-2010, when sunspot numbers were below 25, in 14 out of 18 of such winters (78%) the Greenland blocking (GB) index (defined as in Zhifang and Wallace, 1993) was positive. The GB index, in turn, is strongly correlated with the NAO index (r = -0.81 for the same period). In the winter of 2010, the GB index was record high, with the value three times greater than the standard deviation.
Winter of 2010–2011 in Europe
The winter of 2010-2011 in Europe began with an unusually cold November caused by a cold weather cycle that started in southern Scandinavia and subsequently moved south and west over both Belgium and the Netherlands on 25 November and into the west of Scotland and North East England on 26 November. This was due to a low pressure zone in the Baltics, with a high pressure over Greenland on 24 November.
From 22 November 2010, cold conditions arrived in the United Kingdom, as a cold northerly wind developed and snow began to fall in northern and eastern parts, causing disruption. The winter arrived particularly early for the European climate, with temperatures dropping significantly lower than previous lows for the month of November. On 28 November, Wales recorded their lowest-ever November temperature of −17.3 °C (0.9 °F) in Llysdinam, and Northern Ireland recorded their lowest ever November temperature of −9.5 °C (14.9 °F) in Lough Fea. The UK Met Office issued severe-weather warnings for heavy snow for eastern Scotland and the north-east of England.
From January, the temperatures were more normal.
