Official USGS seismographs continue to register earth-shaking evidence without any proper analysis, coverage, nor the generally expected explanation for this ongoing and sporadic terrestrial phenomena!

What can we do? Escape to Mars?

Alright everybody, it's time to ask some real serious questions and to place our thinking-caps on our heads for this one!!!

How can we escape to Mars, when the U.S. Government has been financially forced to virtually end NASA funding and hop passage onto European spacecraft during emergencies??????

The real question is whether this is related to GPS Telemetry tracking or actually located within the Earth's tectonic plate systems.

Watched a program Friday last - re earthquakes - Antarctica Ice breaking meltdown - disturbing the normal flow of sea [overflowing] - in 30/50 yrs ice age returns - temperatures well below freezing point and the planet as we now know it will no longer be!!! This is due to the global warming - disturbing the natural ebb and flow of temperatures and climatic changes.

Okay enough with the misinformation. Yes, all of these graphs are shaking at the same time, BUT every time there is an earthquake anywhere in the world seismograph around the world are going to record that quake, so of course they are all going to be shaking at the same time.

Earthquake activity is on the increase world wide, but not to the extent indicated by this story. Earthquakes have been increasing in frequency since 1998 and there has been no official explanation for the increase. Last year two recent records were broken. The smallest earthquake that makes it into the record books is 4.5 and the 2008 record of 3,466 for this magnitude or larger was broken in 2010 with 4,125. The other record that fell was the 7.0 or higher that was set in 2007 with 18 and was broken in 2010 with 22. At the pace we are on right now it appears the 4.5 or greater record will be crush by at least 1,000 and possibly as many as 2,000 which would put it at over 6,000 in a single year. The other record that looks like it is going to fall is the 6.0 or higher that was set back in 2008 at 173; we are on track to have over 200 this year already having had 127 with barely more than half the year gone.

With the exception of the 9.0 or higher all of the magnitude records have been set in the last three and a half years: 8.0+, 2007 with 4; 7.0+, 2010 with 22; 6.0+, 2008 with 173; 4.5+, 2010 with 4,125. The 9.0+ earthquakes seem to be occurring at about the same rate as they have throughout history and though we have had a couple of big ones in the last decade they are well down the the list from being the biggest ever recorded.

Yes, things are rocking and a rolling, but not to the extent this story wants to indicate, but if it gets somebody to give an explanation of why we are seeing ever increasing numbers of earthquakes I certainly want to hear it.

If I remember aright we're actually about due for one of the short ice ages - about 10,000 years i think - and then a long warming period, maybe 60,000 yeas, then another Long ice age - 150,000 or more. I really not sure of this, especially the length of time, but I'll try and find it tomorrow.

One more thing I am sure of: the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts about every 250,000 years. Not to worry though - it's been about a quarter of a million years since the last... eh... uh oh. Well, anyhow, there are major change coming in almost every sphere, and soon. Here's hoping at least some of us are as adaptable as our ancestors!

Yes indeed Abbe, but this is something that has been re-occurring approximately once or twice a month since around 2009 ... without being addressed by the USGS.

All of the official government websites are playing-down any and all unusual earth-movements and solar changes as well ... Candy coated for the general public's mindless consumption to stabilize the status quo!

Noted - thanks PinkMindy - you may also have noted that the USGS site no longer covers much of Yellowstone National Park activity - they have taken much off their site - plus we don't get news about anything anymore - just fluff!

I haven't felt any SHAKES here since 1989 when Newcastle had the big one. Prior to that there were small tremors happening for many years that we were not informed of.

What would we do if the North Pole became the South Pole cause the earth turned on it axis. Scary thought right?

Has anyone even noticed that the Earth's orientation has tilted by approximately 4 degrees to the South, because Sunrise is coming up in the higher Northeast and setting further northward in the higher Northwest . . . and is causing the Sun to shine into different windows???

The official report on this made by astronomers is "Oh this is ridiculous, because it always does this every year and you are just now noticing it for the first time" . . .

I keep aware of the Sun-track every year and it has never done this before in my lifetime.

I am forwarding this to multiple sites, so that many can read, investigate and decide for themselves, but it is quite obvious that we are on the verge of more than Climate Change!

Yellowstone Volcano Observatory (YVO) has been indeed removed from the official USGS recording stations, so thank you Val R. for bringing this to our attention! Green Star coming at you.

Is this the beginning to a land-changing Poleshift???

Nice to hear a voice of reason amid all the nonsense... thanks Ralph!

Two possible explanations crossed my mind: firstly there could be a cyclical effect caused by the 18.6 year period of the longitude of the ascending node of the moon's orbit... but it's hard to see the resultant tidal effects as being large enough to cause earthquake clusters, and that sort of periodicity would surely have been noticed long ago. Also the rise in earthquake activity has been going on for more than half a cycle, so the moon can't be to blame.

This leaves global warming. As mountain ranges lose glaciers and ice sheets thin, all that mass shifts from land to sea. Greenland alone is losing a couple of hundred cubic kilometres of ice each year. Redistribution of the earth's mass on this scale might well lead to some creaking at the junctions of tectonic plates.

Earthquakes are associated with pole shift stories. This blog is the project of a physicist who has mentioned earthquakes more than once in posts. You can check his archives for interesting posts. Here is one related to the topic

Oh, please don't encourage him Marilynn... the clue is in his name.
If you really think he's onto something, stick a camera on a tripod and take a long exposure of the northern sky. The star tracks will show Polaris is still at the centre (well, 0.7 away), just as it has been all our lifetimes.

One other thing to consider: Nikola Tesla commented once that he knew a way to "... crack the earth like an eggshell." Now, consider that the Manhattan Projects had no idea whether the nuclear fission in an atomic bomb detonation were self-limiting or not. For all they knew it would just keep going until it consumed the earth's crust to an unknown depth. They found out by setting the damned thing off. Most of us are pretty sure that HAARP can cause earthquakes. Surely such harmonic resonances were what Tesla was talking about. I can't help but wonder if this general tectonic spasming isn't those idiots in Alaska and elsewhere mucking about trying to see if Tesla was right and what the upper limit before irreversible destruction is...
