The Next Great Earthquake

Richard Salbato - March 16, 2011

The greatest threat to America in the near future is our failure to drill and produce our own natural resources in oil, gas and coal, but also in agriculture (food) and utility systems (water and the electric grid.  The reason I put these ahead of the debt, is because these will effect the poor people of America long before the debt will and is effecting them right now.

However, because I have studied Earth Science for 55 years, I am very interested in how nature effects our life and how we can predict it and prepare for it. The short term pain that Japan is going through right now is the earthquake and tsunami that killed tens of thousands of people and put homeless over a half million people.  But much worse than this is the next effect on Japan which is not the Nuclear Power Plants that are melting down, because the worst scenario that we can come up with which is a complete melt down would not effect more that a few deaths. In the Three Mile Island melt down there were no deaths.  In Chernobyl, Russia (the worst in history which did not even have a containment vessel) the count today is less than 800 world wide.

The next great threat to Japan is power, gas, electricity, coal and transportation.  What the half million homeless people need now is food, water and warmth (it is snowing). However, what we hear now is that the government of Japan has run out of gas to run their trucks, plains and move the food to the people.  Twenty percent of their electricity is gone and will not return for years, this includes their coal power plants because the coal has been destroyed by the water of the tsunami. Now if you look at what happened to Japan and New Zealand you will see that the long term affects of these disasters will be energy and not the immediate disaster.

Now that I have established that I worry more about shortages is energy and our debt than a do about natural disasters, I want to show why I believe we are going to have a very large earthquake somewhere in the United States in the next few months and maybe the next few days.

Possible Earthquake on Western Coast

Years ago I was interested in how Ken Ring was the only person predicting Earthquakes and now I find he even predicted most of the many earthquakes in the last two years including Australia. The methods he uses is to watch the gravitational pull of the moon, Sun and planets on the earth, the effects of the Sun spots on earth’s magnet field, the wobble of the magnetic north pole, and the reaction of birds, fish and animals before a quake. A few weeks before an earthquake birds might take off and migrate away because their navigation methods are from the earth’s magnetic field and this become disrupted. At the same time fissures in the ocean floor cause water to heat up and drives fish away. Just before Christchurch, New Zealand ’s earthquake hundreds of whales washed ashore and now thousands of fish have washed ashore in California. Another warning is the smell of sulphur near hot springs.

This coming Saturday and Sunday, March 19th and 20th the moon will be full and closest to the earth, the Sun, and our two largest planets will be in line with the moon. The magnetic north pole has moved and is wobbling.  This means that the chances of a major earthquake in:  Mexico, California, Washington, Organ, Canada or Alaska is very high. This threat his most high this weekend but will remain high until May 1, 2011.

Would this effect California’s Nuclear power plants?  No! They are completely earthquake proof, and for a tsunami to hit them it would have to be 100 foot high, which would wipe out California all the way to Los Vegas.

The Institute of Physics of the Earth, in Moscow, is warning that the America’s are in danger of suffering a mega-quake of catastrophic proportions during the next fortnight (14 days) with a specific emphasis being placed on the United States, Mexico, Central America and South American west coast regions along with the New Madrid Fault Zone region.

More ominously in this report are Russian scientists confirming the independent analysis of New Zealand mathematician and long-range weather forecaster, Ken Ring, who predicted the deadly Christchurch quake and this week issued another warning of a quake to hit on or about March 20th.

At the moment we have Jupiter and Saturn on either side of the Sun and creating a tug of war with Earth in the middle. That started last September and will continue until about May. In September the Earth was right in line with Jupiter, Saturn and the Sun too.

That’s why there were several 7+ earthquakes around, it wasn’t just us. For instance there was one in Pakistan on the same day as Christchurch. This Jupiter/Saturn alignment continues until about May, and the Earth comes back into line as well in March. It is why there may be an extreme event, perhaps a large earthquake, around 20 March, which is when the Moon may be again in a trigger position.”

Most ominous in this report, though, is its warning that the fault-riddled State of California may be about to suffer its most catastrophic earthquake in decades as new reports for this region show the mass death of millions of fish is now occurring, and just like the mass stranding of whales on New Zealand beaches days prior to the February 22nd destruction of Christchurch.

Just like the future problems of Japan, I live 4000 feet above sea level in California, so I will barely feel a large earthquake but because of possible destruction below this mountain I may not be able to get food or gas so we are prepared for this.

In other words, it is always best to be prepared should disaster strike, wherever the warning comes from.
