"Read an article by a NASA JPL scientist who calculated that the Chile Quake actually shifted the earths axis by something like 8 cm. "

does that mean that every subsequent earthquake that chile has had since is adding to this shift in the axis ?
they have had so many large quakes daily and are still doing so
Wondering how much of a shift this will all add up to ??

silverfish


Has anyone noticed a change in wind patterns
Where I live it is always windy but have noticed over the last few months there is virtually no wind ? Definately not our norm

"According to long-term records (since about 1900), we expect about 17 major earthquakes (7.0 - 7.9) and one great earthquake (8.0 or above) in any given year. " USGS from link in Steven's post.

We've had our one "great one" already - hmmm

for WHAT ITS worth this is worth a listen if you haven`t heard him Immanuel Velikovsky was a man whom science considered a quack because of his theories . It wasn`t till after Einstein died and his memoirs were found that Velikovsky was looked at different.

He told scientists that they would find radio signals emanating from Saturn and sure enough he was proven right .

I was looking for info about the large methane leaks from the arctic and ran across this...

Huge iceberg breaks off Antarctica



They say the 2,500 square kilometre iceberg, floating south of Australia, could block an area that produces a quarter of the world's dense and very cold seawater, known as bottom water.

This water drives ocean currents, and scientists say weather patterns could be affected in decades to come.

Dr Neal Young is a glaciologist at the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Co-operative Research Centre in Tasmania.

Last year off the coast of Chile they had a deadly red tide on their shores just before the swine flu outbreak. New Zealand researchers were able to get to where influenza started frozen deep in the ice in the penguin dung.

Right after the Wilkens Ice Shelf broke off is when this red tide happened...

March 3, 2010
By Ron Fraser
The Trumpet



The incidence of natural disaster has risen dramatically over the past 20 years. To close observers of current events in relation to both history and Bible prophecy, this is no mere coincidence. What muddies the water as soon as Bible prophecy is mentioned in relation to natural disaster is the fact that there is a literal abundance of kooks, screwballs and fanatics out there who instantly seize on the latest catastrophe to declare “the end is nigh.”

Doomsayers have been doing this for years. Far too many get involved in such activity for personal profit. They peddle their scaremongering by taking advantage of vulnerable people and, for a price, promise to show a way that the gullible can escape the wrath of their god, the next disaster, creatures from outer space, the end of the world, the implosion of the universe or some other such wacky idea. They make it doubly hard for the genuine seeker after truth.

The facts are that statistics prove natural disasters have risen startlingly since 1990. In a law-abiding universe, there has to be a reason for this.

During the 40 years preceding the decade of the 1990s, there were 142 classified natural disasters in the United States. During the 10 years of the 1990s, there were 72. The decade that followed from 2000 to 2009 saw some of the worst and most destructive natural disasters in recorded history across the globe. And the most destructive in terms of loss of life and property? Earthquakes by far!

“‘Earthquakes are the deadliest natural hazard of the past 10 years and remain a serious threat for millions of people worldwide as eight out of the ten most populous cities in the world are on earthquake fault lines,’ said Margareta Wahlström, UN special representative of the secretary general for disaster risk reduction. …

“According to the figures released today by cred [the Center for Research on Epidemiology of Disasters] in Geneva, 3,852 disasters killed more than 780,000 people over the past 10 years, affected more than 2 billion others and cost a minimum of us$960 billion. …

“After earthquakes, storms (22%) and extreme temperatures (11%) were the most deadly disasters between 2000 and 2009. … ‘The number of catastrophic events has more than doubled since the 1980-1989 decade,’ [said] Professor Guha-Sapir, director of cred” (United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction Secretariat press release, January 2010).

The current decade has commenced with early indications of that trend continuing. Devastating earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, and record-breaking winter storms in Europe and North America have left many dead and homeless, and town and city infrastructures greatly damaged.

On reflection, clearly 1989 was a watershed year, a threshold from which natural disasters escalated most dramatically compared to past eras in history.

Why such drastic escalation in natural disasters since 1989–earthquakes, tsunamis, destructive storms, floods, fires, mudslides, extremes of temperatures—which take the figures right off the record charts since statistics have been recorded?

Well, there is a reason. But it is only apparent to those who, in unbiased, clear-minded fashion, link the facts on the ground with the history of the past and the reality of inerrant Bible prophecies for the future.

There is a prophecy in your Bible that speaks of the world reaching a time when catastrophic events prophesied by humanity’s Creator which were once delayed in their fulfillment for a great purpose would no longer be held back by the hand of God. These climactic events were predestined to be delayed in their inevitable fulfillment to allow a great purpose to come to fruition. They were delayed to allow for the good news of His coming Kingdom on Earth to “be preached in all the world for a witness to all nations” before earthshaking events would herald His return (Matthew 24:14). After that, those events would be no longer delayed. A point in time would be reached when they would break out suddenly and dramatically to shock the world with their destructive force. That’s the only way God has ever been able to grab the attention of humanity!

Those prophesied catastrophes were to be a dramatic warning sign to humankind of the sudden, direct, imminent intervention in human affairs by the Creator God Himself! This was to be a warning sign especially to those who ought to know better than to live the prevailing life of immoral, godless profligacy that has so taken over their society today.

Most especially that warning applies to the descendants of the people to whom Jesus Christ personally came 2,000 years ago as a personal witness to them of the way humankind was destined by its Creator to live—the people of His very own national human heritage. They remain, though in rapid decline, the most blessed nations on Earth. They are the very descendants of the patriarch Abraham, descendants who rejected Christ’s message and slaughtered Him in a most hideous form of death, rather than accept who He was—the literal Son of God.

It was Jesus Christ Himself, whose death and resurrection many will soon celebrate, who declared that before His return to Earth, “there shall be famines and pestilences and earthquakes in divers places” (Matthew 24:7). He went on to declare that additional signs of the closeness of His return would be that His own true and loyal followers would be persecuted at a time of great religious, moral and social confusion.

Why can we point to the year 1989 as the break point, the watershed, from which there have been 20 years of rapidly accelerating incidences of disaster across this world?

Jesus Christ showed the Apostle John, in vision, a keynote prophecy for our day forecasting that we would reach a time when events He had prophesied for our generation would be no longer delayed. Referring to that prophecy, which is contained in Revelation 10, our editor in chief has declared, “We are in a time of no more delay (verse 6), and I believe that is the major reason why our commission has changed from preaching the gospel around the world to prophesying again”.

We can prove to any mind open to receive it that the prophesied time of no more delay began on Dec. 7, 1989, just 28 days following the breaching of the Berlin Wall. Ever since that time the world has increasingly destabilized—through accelerating natural disasters, political upheavals, wars and rumors of wars, economic and financial disaster and great moral and social disintegration.

This will continue until humankind gets the message. The message that there is a great omnipresent, omniscient Creator and Sustainer of this universe who has created humankind with an incredible human potential to which he remains blinded by a power which has been set since man’s creation on destroying that very same potential!

If you have read this far, then you need to find out just what that potential is and really do something about laying hold on it—fast—before catastrophe overtakes you and you regret not having acted earlier!

This response from the USGS is quite peculiar, and comes across as an attempt to calm the curious or defuse and inquiring public.

For starters, they are trying to tell us that the ability and availability to record more quakes due to advancements and number of stations between 1900-2006, is generating the increase in the number of quakes. However, if we really look at the greatest leap in earth quake activity, the window is between the year 2002-2006 (2008,09,10 not on this graph). Now, we are comparing a 4 year window of recorded activity and technology/number of stations, instead of a 106 year window. Therefore, the number of stations available and technology to record earthquakes becomes a non-factor and makes me think more about USGS integrity.

Here is the link again to the graph http://www.thehorizonproject.com/earthquakes.cfm

Let's look further.....
By looking at the earthquakes from 2002-2006 you will notice the immediate leap into double digits annually for 7-8+ mag quakes. Prior to 2002, we averaged 4 quakes (7-8+ mag) annually. As of 2002, we jumped to a whopping 22 quakes, then in 2003 we jumped to 38 quakes, 2004- 33 quakes, 2005 -36 quakes, and a mild decrease in 2006 to 24 quakes. Now, if you then consider what we know to date, which is the Suns activity became rather quiet in 2003 and the NEAT comet was spotted flying pass the Sun also in 2003…The year we had the highest number of 7-8+ mag quakes.

Basically, USGS is not to be trusted. Good thing they were not posting that response to Avalon inquiries. LOL

well that number is very low considering 750K were lost in just 2 earthquake/Tsunamis over the last 7 years...

Hi there, this is a great idea, yes! I add 2 links here, the first is a tracking of seismic activity on Earth, daily updates, and the second one is about changes in the ice formation on the North Pole 1978 - 2005 an animation of pictures taken from a satellite.

6.0 EQ today - Mariana Islands
http://www.iris.edu/seismon/

Also in the news..

"The depletion of oxygen levels in all three oceans is striking," said Gregory Johnson , an oceanographer with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Seattle .

In some spots, such as off the Southern California coast, oxygen levels have dropped roughly 20 percent over the past 25 years. Elsewhere, scientists say, oxygen levels might have declined by one-third over 50 years.

"The real surprise is how this has become the new norm," said Jack Barth , an oceanography professor at Oregon State University . "We are seeing it year after year."

Ocean H20 levels changing - link is below. There is a definite "man made" global warming spin to the article but I think it is the changes (regardless of the cause) that we should be interested in watching.

Mmm do we believe in coincidence...??


Deadly quakes are coincidence, scientists say

LONDON – Experts say there is nothing unusual about the latest spate of earthquakes in Haiti, Chile and now Turkey, but their devastating effects illustrate how increased construction up and down the world's fault lines can translate into massive casualties.

And seismologists say that although one powerful quake can conceivably make others slightly more likely elsewhere, the string of quakes is probably just coincidence.

Bob Holdsworth, an expert in tectonics at Durham University, said Monday that "I can definitely tell you that the world is not coming to an end."
