Earthquakes

Interestingly there was a 3.1 in my new home state on 4/7/2014 which has never happened in the 8 months I’ve lived here. I never expected there to be one in this state! This isn’t a place that gets quakes. Perhaps this was what I felt. I usually have to have some proximity like this or a tie to the area to get the physical feeling associated with it. With fracking and all the quakes happening globally it is so difficult to get a handle on where one is coming next. Proximity is the only real way for me to feel it coming. If I don’t have physical proximity I have to have emotional proximity via a loved one.

  1. Freak earthquakes seems to be happening all over – we had one here in the south of France last week. No major damage. What about in your area? Do you feel more coming in the middle of the country? What do you make of all the animals leaving Yellowstone a few weeks back?

  2. Wow. I didn’t hear about that but it sounds like a volcanic eruption is eminent. Animals know.

  3. a big one just happened near the coast of Australia this time I produced a link

  4. do you feel that Fracking would have anything to do with the recent rash of earthquakes?

    Dear Marie

    I am absolutely convinced that fracking seriously damages the earth’s crust. The only people in favour of it in Britain are Conservatives who, as usual, are pursuing short term profit at the expense of the long term health of our planet. This Conservative government promised to be ‘the greenest ever’ but has totally failed to live up to its promises.

    • I know all about the conservative movement all over the world. we’re going to have to fight back hard and win our democracy back.

    Dear Marie

    By the way, fracking is absolutely the last thing you need in California so I hope that Governor Moonbeam will reach the right decision about it. In Britain some protesters carry big signs saying ‘Frack Off!’

      perfect response. I love it!

    • Ironically, there is fracking going on in SoCal right on a fault line. I heard about this right before I moved. Supposedly this fault is somehow intimately connected to the San Andreas – it may actually be on that fault line. I couldn’t believe it so I thought the info was wrong and put it out of my head. But I have heard it now from more than one source.

    Dear Denise

    Yesterday I signed yet another anti-fracking petition from 38 Degrees. The Conservative government is now bribing councils to accept fracking even though they know that the majority of Britons are dead against the idea. Conservative councils will probably follow the cash rather than the ecology.

    • that’s the problem Simon.. Conservatives do not listen to the will of the people and not until you vote them out.

      conservative politicians have turned a deaf ear on the will of the people, and for some reason they think it does not matter and money seems to speak louder.

    • Fracking is remarkably horrible. We all know it. We know it is causing more harm than good but it’s like a pirate on his last ship he just won’t leave until he clears out all the booty even if that means he will die in the process.

    Dear Marie

    You are right as usual. Conservatives (with a handful of exceptions) worship money and markets and then have the nerve to believe that they are morally superior to the rest of us!

    Best wishes from Simon

  9. Hi Denise – few years ago – I think it was November 2011 — you posted your predictions on future weather changes, and how “freak” occurrences would become more common. Today I saw a article on a giant iceberg in Antartica that is headed for the open sea. Interesting. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/apr/24/b31-pine-island-glacier

  10. I think the State of Florida is going to go under… Bye Bye Florida sooner rather than later.

  11. take a look at this picture. parts of Florida will disappear in a few years due to climate change and rising of sea water.
