EDGAR CAYCE predicted Gulf oil spill activating Madrid earthquake & destroying 1/2 of USA down the Mississippi
Saturday, June 12, 2010 18:20
As the Great Lakes, at 600 feet above sealevel, rushes down the Mississippi River. at least 50 miles on each side, the 600 foot wave will destroy much of America, right down the middle. All due to the oil spill event. After the oil dumps billions of gallons of oil, then the ice cold water will enter the crevice, where it is 400 degrees, and cause an explosion, and the mother of all tsunanmi waves, which will wipe out the Gulf States, including Florida. THEN the Madrid faultline will blow, Goodbye, Chicago and Saint Louis, and all the other cities in its path. There will be no time to evacuate, and it will be impossible to try to outrun the rushing water from the TWO catastrophes.
Another earthquake along the New Madrid fault could cause a tsunami-like flood that would devastate the cities along the Mississippi River. Edgar Cayce actually prophesied a two-stage Midwest flood in which the Great Lakes would overflow into the Mississippi and a great watery divide would split the USA down the middle. The Mississippi River would then become the Great Midwest Strait.

US may soon become world's top oil producer
By JONATHAN FAHEY | Associated Press – 11 hrs ago
NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. oil output is surging so fast that the United States could soon overtake Saudi Arabia as the world's biggest producer.
Driven by high prices and new drilling methods, U.S. production of crude and other liquid hydrocarbons is on track to rise 7 percent this year to an average of 10.9 million barrels per day. This will be the fourth straight year of crude increases and the biggest single-year gain since 1951.
The boom has surprised even the experts.
"Five years ago, if I or anyone had predicted today's production growth, people would have thought we were crazy," says Jim Burkhard, head of oil markets research at IHS CERA, an energy consulting firm.
All I can say, living in the West Texas Oil Fields for most of my life, is that FRACKING gets the job done. I have yet to see any hard tangible proof that FRACKING causes earthquakes. All I have seen so far is a "liberal" view of possibilities but no proof to back it up or support it.
Most earthquakes in the Barnett Shale region of North Texas occur within a few miles of one or more injection wells used to dispose of wastes associated with petroleum production such as hydraulic fracturing fluids, according to new research from The University of Texas at Austin. None of the quakes identified in the two-year study were strong enough to pose a danger to the public.
Researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey said that for the three decades until 2000, seismic events in the nation’s midsection averaged 21 a year. They jumped to 50 in 2009, 87 in 2010 and 134 in 2011.
While I would agree that if you empty a cavern full of oil out of the ground and replace it with nothing, leaves an empty open pocket for the ground to sink into. Backfilling that empty cavern with fluid or solid material would keep it from caving in.
Earthquake techtonics are alot different and go very deep into the ground.
Once again (and I wish I could get this thru to you activists) frac'ing is not what you should be attacking.
If you think it is bad, put a stop to the permitting of disposals.
Here's the other thing about greed. It is not just corporate greed that drives domestic gas
production. It is everyone's greed. From the top down.
The question that has to be asked is, is the quest for clean renewable energy so urgent that it is worth the potential loss of life and economic damage? The gas company will say yes because there is no risk. The environmentalist will say no because there is a risk. Who is right? Only time will tell, but punching holes under nuclear installations cannot be a good thing.

OFFICIALS MULL SEISMIC TESTS NEAR CALIF NUKE PLANT

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Plans to use an array of powerful air cannons in an undersea seismic study near a Central California nuclear power plant have federal and state officials juggling concerns over marine life with public safety.
Pacific Gas & Electric Co. wants to use big air guns to emit strong sound waves into a large, near-shore area that includes parts of marine reserves to make three-dimensional maps of fault zones, some of which were discovered in 2008, near its Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant.
State law mandated that the company conduct extensive seismic studies. After the company decided that it would use the high-energy seismic imaging technology for the study, a state environmental impact analysis found the project was likely to have "unavoidable adverse effects" on marine life and the environment. Biologists, environmental groups and fishermen have opposed using the high-energy air guns, saying the blasts have potential to harm endangered whales, California sea otters and other creatures frequenting these waters.
