This is pretty darn good science. I am seeing digital signal processed
waveforms that indicate to me explosive movements within a highly
specific geographic area and defined time-space.
This PERSONALLY does not cause me too much concern UNLESS the FREQUENCY
of those events INCREASE OVER TIME. There are ALWAYS seismic shifts occurring
in any seismic area that are picked up by these extremely sensitive instruments BUT
if there is a CONSISTENT ever-increasing MAGNITUDE of seismic activity with an
EVER SHORTENING FREQUENCY between events, THAT would DEFINITELY
become a game changer.
Unfortunately, on an instruments-only basis, the evidence presented is inconclusive
as to whether or not a consistent pattern of ever-increasing seismic magnitude and
shortening time spans between events indicates a coming landslide.
ONE METHOD to correlate these plots, is to use the NATURAL WORLD as a
barometer of increasing seismic activity. Increasing numbers of reports of local
wildlife or natural surroundings agitation (i.e. dogs howling incessantly, cats
and other pets running away, birds and amphibians suddenly leaving nesting
grounds, atmospheric bright lights caused by piezoelectric effects, loud booms,
suddenly foul smelling or bubbly/agitated/coloured water supplies) and other
effects would be ANOTHER indicator to me that the START of a major seismic
event is on its way.
Le Palma is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS to the East Coast of the United States
and Canada plus Central America and Upper South America because the
SHEER VOLUME of the unstable volcanic slope would cause a MAJOR
WATER DISPLACEMENT EVENT which would cause the Tsunami Waves
to have a height of 10 METERS (over 30 feet) MINIMUM in height to arise
as they hit the continental slopes. In certain areas, ESPECIALLY near
the Philadelphia, Washington DC, Boston areas, the incoming waves
are likely to be OVER 20 METRES HIGH (i.e. 60 feet+) because of
the SHAPE of the nearby coastlines causing wave amplification effects.
The recent hurricane will be a mere pipsqueak of a drenching compared
to the MASSIVE FLOODING that will occur with a La Palma landslide.
I'm guessing between 2 to 3 TRILLION DOLLARS OF DAMAGE.
NOT 3 BILLION - THREE TRILLION DOLLARS - or one quarter
of the U.S.'s Gross Domestic Product. This is an event that
would take between 15 to 25 YEARS to recover from because
of the SHEER square area that would be affected.
My suggestion to fix this is a CONTROLLED demolition of the
mountain. Just start DIGGING AWAY at the unstable slabs
(upper-parts first!) using 60,000 PSI Water + Garnet Cutters
that will rip one cubic meter blocks at a time off the mountain.
4000 workers could do it in TWO YEARS or less with the
appropriate tools and trucks. Just dump the blocks on the
other side of La Palma ... OR .... create a multi-pile
break-water like structures far enough away on the U.S.
facing side of La Palma that it would diminish the effect
of any water displacement activity due to landslide.
Paying 4000 workers and using 100 Water + Garnet Cutters
to do some mountain demolition is better than removing 3 TRILLION
dollars from the U.S. economy! Pay a little NOW or PAY a WHOLE
LOT LATER! --- YOUR CHOICE!
