From RT.com – November 28, 2013


Northern Texas (USA) towns are experiencing an intense string of earthquakes – the last of which was one of the most powerful in 5 years.As unusual tremors have been going on for over 3 weeks now, many suspect fracking might be to blame.

On Thursday, the region experienced two tremors, with one of them registering 3.6 magnitude, 55 km west of the town of Azle at 07:58:36 GMT, as recorded by the US Geological Service, and the other 2.8 at 08:41:07 GMT, with the epicenter not far from the first one. USGS records show that the 3.6 tremor was one of the strongest earthquakes to hit the region in 5 years.

“It sounded like a sonic boom, and then the house started shaking,” Keith Krayer, a local resident who felt the effects of the quake, told RT.

Krayer said he had no doubt the quake was sparked by fracking. “When they frack, they inject all that water and chemicals into the ground, then they pump it back up and separate the gas from the water, then they have to dispose of that water 13,000 feet down. It causes the plates to slip, the lubrication from the water.”

Residents like Krayer are having their nerves put to the test as the region chalked up its 16th this month. In the last four days, there have been six recorded quakes.

Between 1970 and 2007, the area around the Texas town of Azle (pop. 10,000) experienced just two earthquakes. The peace and quiet began to change, however, at the start of 2008, when 74 minor quakes were reported in the region.

Now an increasing number of people, including scientists, are speculating that natural gas production by fracking – a process that forces high pressure water and chemicals into rock in order to extract natural gas reserves – is the culprit. The problem, however, is proving the claims.

Cliff Frolich, earthquake researcher at the University of Texas, said waste water injection wells from fracking could be responsible for the recent spate of earthquake activity.

“I’d say it certainly looks very possible that the earthquakes are related to injection wells,” he said in an interview with KHOU television.

Frolich left room for doubt when he said thousands of such wells have operated in Texas for decades with no quakes anywhere near them.

Frolich co-authored a 2009 study on earthquake activity near Cleburne, just south of Azle, which concluded: “The possibility exists that earthquakes may be related to fluid injection.”

A recent government study lent credence to Frolich’s findings.

The use of underground storage wells to get rid of waste water produced by fracking is “almost certainly” to blame for the jump in earthquakes in Midwestern states in recent years, a recent Geological Survey study has found.

The report said the number of magnitude-3 earthquakes or greater occurring in the mid-region of North America surged from 29 in 2008 to 134 last year.

The USGS study pointed to an unusual surge in tremors near wastewater wells in many US states, including Arkansas, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma and Ohio.

However, the USGS stopped short of linking the process of fracking to earthquakes directly, mostly blaming methods used to dispose of fracking by-products.

In January 2012, following a rash of earthquakes, including a 4.0-magnitude tremor, Ohio legislators placed a temporary ban on fracking after experts said the controversial process for storing waste water in deep underground wells was to blame for the outbreak of tremors.

Meanwhile, the mayor of Azle, Alan Brundrett, said it’s crucial to determine whether the latest series of quakes are man-made.

“What could it cause down the road?” he asked. “What if a 5.0 happens and people’s houses start falling in on them?”

“Enough is enough!” Keith Krayer, a resident of Briar, just north of Azle was quoted by the station as saying. “My wife, she’s having panic attacks because of it.”

Thus far, the rattling has just produced a lot of anxiety. The Parker County Sheriff’s Office has no reports of damage or injuries from any of Thursday’s earthquakes.

As of March 2012, Texas had listed nearly 6,000 oil and gas fracking wells on FracFocus, an industry fracking disclosure site, SourceWatch.org reports.

The first instance of hydraulic fracturing – creating fractures from a wellbore drilled into reservoir rock formations – was reportedly performed in 1947, the organization notes. Fracking on a commercial scale, however, was first used in the Barnett Shale – a geological formation which underlies the city of Fort Worth and at least 17 counties.The first Barnett Shale well was completed in 1981 in Wise County, Texas. Subsequent drilling expanded greatly in the early 2000s due to a hike in natural gas prices and the use of horizontal wells to increase production.

Fracking and horizontal drilling technology have been heralded as an economic boon by the oil industry, though the techniques have contributed to nationwide concern about air pollution, groundwater contamination and broader environmental degradation.

Nikola Tesla: Father of HAARP and Electromagnetic “Climate Change”

MIRRORED from GeoEngineering Exposed(ChemtrailsPlanet) April 07, 2013

The covert use of weather modification is the “climate change” we should fear most.

image top: Time - 1931

This short video explains the basis for HAARP as a weapon of weather modification.
The covert application of Tesla’s concepts of heating the ionosphere has been sold to the public as” global warming” and then “climate change”.  
Neither warmists or deniers will ever convince the public the climate is changing as the IPCC claims until the past 22 years of aerosol deployment, HAARP and a vast array covert weather weapons is universally acknowledged.

The issue of weather modification of storms is no longer a secret.
Many observers took time to document conditions, images and data as Sandy progressed from a low pressure area to category 2 Hurricane to inflict $Billions in damage, life, hardship and property loss just prior to the presidential election.
The evidence of foreknowledge and coincidence of Hurricane “Sandy” and “Sandy Hook” massacre cannot be ignored.  
It’s now public knowledge that the Department of Homeland Security is involved in aerosol geoengineering to mitigate, steer or even intensify storms.
If Sandy was forecast to weaken why this storm make landfall as a category 2 Hurricane - especially when mitigation strategies available to DHS were available?

We now know that a combination of aerosol geoengineering combined with HAARP manipulation can create, steer, mitigate or intensify storms.
The full-length documentaries that follow are extremely helpful at decoding the mystery and criminal intent behind these operations.
It’s my opinion that the enemy’s anticipated advantage of “plausible deniability” has been lost to the collective genius of citizens willing to adapt and investigate suspicious operations performed in the name of the US government and their agencies.
The DHS tried to hide the purchase 1.6 Billion rounds of deadly ammunition.
Do you really trust them with your weather?

Interesting excerpt from the 1931 Time Magazine article commemorating Nikola Tesla’s 75th birthday

‘I am working now upon two things,” he said. ”First, an explanation based upon pure mathematics of certain things which Professor Einstein has also attempted to explain. My conclusions in certain respects differ from and to that extent tend to disprove the Einstein Theory. . . . My explanations of natural phenomena are not so involved as his. They are simpler, and when I am ready to make a full announcement it will be seen that I have proved my conclusions.

“Secondly, I am working to develop a new source of power. When I say a new source, I mean that I have turned for power to a source which no previous scientist has turned, to the best of my knowledge. The conception, the idea when it first burst upon me was a tremendous shock.

“It will throw light on many puzzling phenomena of the cosmos, and may prove also of great industrial value, particularly in creating a new and virtually unlimited market for steel.

‘I can only say at this time it will come from an entirely new and unsuspected source, and will be for all practical purposes constant day and night, and at all times of the year. The apparatus for capturing the energy and transforming it will partake both of mechanical and electrical features, and will be of ideal simplicity.

“At first the cost may be found too high, but this obstacle eventually will be overcome. Moreover, the installment will be, so to speak, indestructible, and will continue to function for any length of time without additional expenditures. Complete 1931 article:

Using electromagnetic radiation to modify the weather was an original concept of Nikola Tesla

When Tesla died in 1943, the FBI seized his scientific papers and notes. After WWII weather modification and space weapons became a mission of the military and US government agencies to become much of what President Eisenhower warned about as the “military-industrial complex”.

In 1958 the military reported success with using Tesla’s concept of electromagnetic “beams” directed at the ionosphere to control the weather.

The history of weather modification and the inappropriately abrupt concern about “climate change” began essentially at the same time in the 1950′s with the National Weather Modification program formalized by NASA in 1966.

Common sense would question how the consequences of covert weather modification could be distinguished from “climate change” - however this question was rarely addressed when the original label was the more ambiguous, “global warming”.  
This label provided a conceptual disconnect to the consequences of weather modification until the data failed to show enough warming to fit the hypothetical “computer models”.  
The operative term “climate change” was reluctantly adopted to replace “global warming” when the hypothesis and real world data could no longer be supported.

Today, the term weather modification is generally accepted as a fact even if some people regard the concept as old-style rain-making by spraying clouds with silver iodide or dry ice.   
It’s now much easier to demand answers that distinguish “climate change” from covert weather modification using aerosols and a network of electromagnetic weapons with many orders of magnitude the effect of cloud-seeding.

In fact, it is now the case that global weather modification is the climate change we should fear most.

Interesting Facts About Earthquakes

Posted: 20 Nov 2013 10:13 PM PST

When we look out for most destructive and unpredictable natural disasters, earthquake tops the list with a record of more than million innocent lives to its name. Earthquakes cause tremendous destruction not only in areas where they are centered but nearby areas as well. Effects of earthquakes are far more devastating than what one can presume. Earthquakes are one of the most dreaded natural disasters which can affect the earth without any warning. There can be many questions related to this natural monster like the cause behind it, facts about earthquakes and history associated with it.

What Causes Earthquake

The main reason behind earthquakes is the moment of tectonic plates under the earth’s crust. Tectonic plates are floating on the molten magma beneath the earth’s crust. These tectonic plates are gigantic land masses which are constantly in a moving motion, but at a very slow rate. When these plates move to a same direction, they result in a clash, which is observed as earthquake on the earth’s crust. The place under the earth’s crust where the plates clash is the center of the earthquake and is called as the hypocenter. The place on the earth crust which is above the hypocenter is called as epicenter. This is the area where the maximum destruction is caused. Other common reason for earthquakes is the volcanic eruptions. Volcanic eruptions are caused when the molten magma under the earth’s crust is under enormous pressure and it looks for an opening and exerts pressure on the weaker part of the crust to release that pressure. This release results in a massive explosion which in turn results in an earthquake of a high magnitude.

Here in this article we have mentioned some interesting facts about earthquake which will enhance your knowledge about this natural destructive force.

A City In Chile Moved 10 Feet

Believe it or not, but Maule a place in the South American country Chile drifted about 10 feet from its actual position. The magnitude of this horrific earthquake was measured about 8.8 on the Richter scale. This makes it the fifth largest ever recorded earthquake reading. The image below represents the relative direction and magnitude of the ground movement in the vicinity of the quake. The reason behind this earthquake was an oceanic plate colliding with a continental plate and was being pushed into the Earth’s molten mantle below.

About 500000 Earthquakes a Year

According to the recent surveys done all across the world, reports suggest that there are near about 500000 earthquakes every year. Most of them are micro earthquakes which have a value of less than 2 on the Richter scale. The maximum amount of earthquakes range from 3 to 4 on Richter scale which are regarded as very light earthquakes that are often felt, but rarely causes damage. Around 100 earthquakes range 6 to 7 on Richter scale which are considered as strong earthquakes and can be destructive in areas up to 160 kilometers. The most destructive earthquakes range from 8 to 9 on Richter scale and are very rare, but can cause serious damage in areas several hundred miles across.

March Is Not Earthquake Month

Stats show that there are minimum numbers of earthquake recorded in the month of March. However, the largest earthquake ever recorded was on March 28, 1964, Prince William Sound, Alaska, which had a magnitude of 9.2 and killed 125 people, causing $311 million in property damages. If you look out for more earthquake history you will find that the next three earthquakes in U.S. occurred in February, November, and December. The month of February is considered to be the month of earthquake and even is celebrated as the earthquake awareness month.

Earth’s Bulge Was Trimmed

One of the largest earthquakes was recorded on December 26th, 2004 in the Indian Ocean. The earthquake was so destructive that it had effects in the countries of Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Sri Lanka and India. This earthquake was recorded of magnitude 9 on the Richter scale which almost certainly altered the shape of the earth. This major shift in the earth’s plates was affective enough to shorten the day by fractions of a second.

The Pacific Ring of Fire

The Pacific Ring of Fire is a ring of volcanoes around the Pacific Ocean. The Ring of Fire contains 452 volcanoes and is home to over 75 percent of the world’s active and dormant volcanoes. This fact makes it the most earthquake prone area where 90 percent of the world’s earthquakes and 81 percent of the world’s largest earthquakes happen. The ring complies of countries like Japan, Philippines, Tonga, Bougainville, Sumatra, Bali, Java, Flores, Timor, New Zealand, Haida Gwaii, British Columbia and Canada.

The Deadliest Earthquake Ever

Earthquakes cause more deaths than any other natural calamity. The earthquake on January 23, 1553 had a magnitude of 8 and resulted in the death toll of about 830,000 people. This earthquake was located in Shansi, China and the damaged area was up to 270 miles away. The second deadliest earthquake was also located in Tangshan, China on July 27, 1976 where the dead toll was estimated around 655,000. The tsunami in Indian Ocean on December 26, 2004 had a magnitude of 9.1 on Richter scale and lead to 227,898 deaths.

Earthquakes Kill Approximately 8000 People Each Year

According to the earthquake surveys, there are almost 8000 deaths due to earthquake every year. If the records are searched back around four thousand years, the death toll rises up to thirteen million, causing more deaths than any other natural disaster. As a matter of fact the death rate in earthquakes has significantly doubled in last 300 years.

The Indian Ocean Earthquake

The tsunami in the Indian Ocean that took place on December 26, 2004 was an undersea mega thrust earthquake. The earthquake is known by the scientific community as the Sumatra–Andaman earthquake. The earthquake was caused when the Indian tectonic plate clashed with Burma tectonic plate, resulting in a series of devastating tsunamis in the Indian Ocean. The earthquake had a magnitude of 9.1 and had duration of 10 minutes. It was one of the deadliest natural disasters in recorded history with Indonesia was the hardest-hit country, followed by Sri Lanka, India, and Thailand.
