iv been wondering if all the sucking of oil and shail drilling we have been doing, is shrinking the planet i mean like an engine you need lubricants to keep things moving in sync what if we have got rid of the lube and now their is friction aganist the tech plates shrinking the planet and causeing techtonec destabilasation?

I am probably way way wrong here but I make the total oil extracted something of the order of 0.0000000214939% of the volume of the earth but I usually get my decimal point in the wrong place.

I did find a calculation that said 0.0001% ot he CRUST is organic material, and oil is but a small part of that so i don't think I am too far out.

Any way it is a VERY small proportion of the total volume of the earth so I doubt we are shrinking the planet to any degree.

Of course oil/gas/water extraction can affect different localities but that is a different thing.

Oil and gas do not lubricate the tectonic plates. If they did the ring of fire really would be!!

Wow. Things are getting back to normal. That was incredible. For a multitude of reasons. I'm sure even those professional geotype guys are going, "hmmmm". Firstly, what's wonderful is almost no death. Indonesia had heartattacks. All that energy shaking the jello around our world. Wow. I told you guys the most interesting times to real pay attention is during a lull. Watching this return to activity was fascinating. I'm convinced that couplets have something to do with what happened.

Look at South America. It's spooky quiet at the moment. So... Also, Europe slowed after showing signs of movement last week. But when you look at the west coast of North America, it has to make you wonder. I have some ideas on why I think it's time for Cascadia. Simply, the Pacific is spreading. I remember one researcher talking about the west coast and he thought there was a chance the whole thing could ruputure all the way from Canada to Mexico. Well, those big ones ran up and down the spine of North America, and when they did, it sent chills up my spine.

Could this be a Rogue Wave?

I've never heard of one impacting land though...

Can I place that 'researcher' in the stocks please? I have some rotten veg here I could throw.

That is without doubt cow crap piled on top of bovine excrement and decorated with great hairy rowlocks. This is exactly the sort of fearmongering that should be made a capital offence.

For starters they are different junctions on the way down. If one is going to claim that then why not claim it going all the way down past S. America, hell encircle the world and blow the whole lot in one go.

if this keeps up,,

wow that is bad,,getting bader,,

Pray one and all,,,that nothing is cracking nothing ,,substantial,,pray.

So is there a consensus on this increased activity?
Will it just die down like all the other times or could a big one be coming?

posted on Apr, 13 2012 @ 06:54 AM
What the...
I didn't want to look at the maps first, so I decided to look at Yellowstone's traces. There were two- one right after another. I figured hey, two aftershocks in Indonesia. Nope, Japan at 6.0M and Mexico 5.7M . Look at the times. The two quakes were three seconds apart.

Yup saw the Mexico one but did not think it was worth posting.

Too small.

Ha, they dropped the 6 to 5.7 and the 5.7 to 5.4. I wasn't noting them for their size. I've been watching timing. If you look at YMR at Yellowstone the traces look almost identical and one after another. I suppose the Mexico would show first then Japan. Forget it- I'm not looking at the travel times.

They changed the time between the two. Now they're set at four seconds apart. It seems I'm now obsessed by the idea of double events. During that curious cluster of quakes, there were the two eights, but there were also two 6's on the west coast on North America. They seem to come in pairs that's all. And I tried to find the name of dude who said the whole coast would rip. I didn't pay it much heed obviously. His idea seemed over the top. But when I saw the whole coast go off in a day, I immediately thought about his statement and wished I could remember what program I saw him on.

Also, I'm glad Chile had an earthquake. I was being to wonder about South America.

You know there is altogether too much of this going on.

Time was they got it about right first hit. Now the magnitudes are up and down like a whores draws.

Does my head in.


By the way that Mexico one is NOT 5.4, well it is 5.4mb but EMSC have it at 5.7 Mw. Scale switching does my head in as well.

There is absolutely no reason why they cannot calculate Mw for all quakes. I think it should be the rules that they do so.

Any idea why that is? I have just had the crazy thought that possibly the equipment these days is actually too sensitive to get properly accurate readings? Hence all the subsequent revisions.....

Probably way off but wouldn't that be something if it is right? We are now way too clever for our own good!

No, there is no reason that I can think of. I accept that the mb value can be inaccurate as I said on my thread about magnitudes (see Quake Nerds Corner in signature) but there is NO reason why they should get the Mw values wrong.

Punch it out in mb, fine. Correct it in Mw, fine.


As some of you may be aware I keep all copies of revisions and deletions so I can see the whole story.

EMSC for the Mexico quake. All versions Mw and all 5.7

USGS, first version 5.7Mw as EMSC. Then changed to 5.4 mb. Something screwed uo there. Why change back to a less accurate value?

EMSC Honshu starts at 5.6 mb and is then adjusted to 5.8 Mw after skated up to a 5.9 and immediately back down. (I can get a timing on that if you want) No problems there then

USGS starts as a 6.0 Mw and then gets changed to a 5.7 Mt (which actually is the same as Mw: M-type=teleseismic moment magnitude (Mw))

Why is USGS miscalculating the Mw values first? Students on the job perhaps or the equipment is screwed up and needs replacing.

Nightmare in Seismic Street.

IRIS just went down. I was trying to get the trace for YMR

Sorry no seismos til it is back up.

So, question is, is this a server glitch or are they hiding something
