« More Significant Earthquakes Rattle Coast Of Oregon | Main | Life After People and How the Earth Was Made »



So much political and economic phenomena gets deftly linked in this blog, that I read about quake activity and my mind sees geopolitical links. Maybe it's just me, but I hope we're not looking for a chapter of the book of Revelations: seas of blood red ink, the Earth shaking... I guess it's nice that things have a meaning and a direction, even if it's a terrible one. I'm pretty sure though, that the tectonic plates don't punish us for keeping interest rates too low, bailing out bankers or even for polluting... So I guess an overdue earthquake would come even in the most Utopian alternative political & economic universe we could imagine.

The only connection I see is that we're better with a resilient economy with plenty reserves, albeit a slower growing one. And solid homes, built away from seismic areas.

All the seismic activity....

Nibiru? But it's effects are not due for another 5 years. Then we're F'd.



I have read in more than one geology article that when water is extracted from an aquifer, and the water level of the aquifer drops, the surface of the land above becomes much drier. I figure it will take another Ice Age to recharge the vast Ogallala aquifer in the West. So that means the West will go from being merely arid, to being a total desert. And a hell of a lot of farmland will become unusable.

They seem to be finding new fault lines in California on a regular basis. The entire West Coast seems to be poised for big quakes. I read that just one small quake could cut off all water in Southern California instantly! Yellowstone has been looking shaky, too. If that supervolcano erupts, people in the eastern states will probably be downwind of the dustclouds, not California. So nowhere is very safe. But I certainly wouldn't want to be on the West Coast.

Silly young people are still moving to Arizona and Nevada, though! Maps show that West Virginia is the pollution center of the nation. All in all, New England's not so bad.

Years before the housing bust, James Howard Kunstler talked about the levels of "hallucinated wealth" in America. That phrase stuck with me and now we see, the hallucination is clearing.

Kunstler's other prediction is that the cities of the Southwest would "dry up and blow away." I expect that will happen too.

Happy Long Emergency everybody.

I figured that out long ago. This is because of rampant water wastage out west even when Tucson had just 75,000 people. It is now well over a million. I remember Scottsdale when it was nearly all rural. Less than 15,000 people. This is so unsustainable.

Mexico will get the southeast back, and high time.

All borders are fluid. They change over history nearly nonstop.

Sorry, southwest, should never post that time of night.


The New Madrid fault is also acting up, lately. The Juan de Fuca fault off of Oregon had another small one. And the Reno quakes made the mainstream media.

As Bette Davis as Margo Channing said, "Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy ride."

The entire west is very shaky right now. More so than any time in the last 5 years.
