5 Theories Why We're Experiencing Increased Earthquake Activity

8.9 Quake Devastates Japan/AFP image 
Activist Post

Planet Earth has experienced a very noticeable up-tick in earthquake activity and intensity over the last five years. Leading up to the great Japan quake, we've witnessed the utter devastation from the 2004 Indian Ocean megathrust earthquake and tsunami, the catastrophic Haiti quake, an axis-moving Chile quake in 2010, massive and multiple quakes in New Zealand, and record earthquake swarms hitting Yellowstone and the New Madrid Fault line in middle America culminating with the worst earthquake in 35 years to hit the area, and many more.

The devastating effects on human civilization are on full display in the most recent 8.9 earthquake in Japan.  The powerful quake and corresponding tsunami showed that not even a fully developed nation with the world's third largest economy can withstand nature's fury.  This was also evident in the New Zealand quakes which continue to demolish the first-world city of Christchurch.

Evidence of increased tectonic activity aside, the great Japan quake of 2011 will go down as the event that finally woke up humanity from their slumber to recognize the potential damage quakes can and will cause.  The huge quakes in Haiti and Chile last year indicated the power of such activity, but the effects of the nuclear meltdown happening in Japan will likely have global consequences that force society to challenge our conventional path.


This new awareness of our fragile existence in the face of such powerful forces of nature has brought about many theories as to why earthquake activity is increasing.  Many will brush it off as natural occurrences without understanding that everything in nature is caused by something, whether or not it can be seen or measured.  Indeed, we are witnessing many earth changes happening for the first time in modern history.  And perhaps all of these anomalies are connected in some way, or at least compounding nature's recent wrath.


Here are five theories as to the cause of increased earthquake activity:

Solar and Lunar Activity: Meteorologist and astrophysicist Piers Corbyn claims a combination of solar activity and the extreme lunar cycle is the cause of the increased earthquakes.  He's not alone.  On March 9th, NASA reported a powerful solar flare, an X1.5-class explosion from behemoth sunspot 1166 around 2323 UT, which they said would cause 'global disturbances'.  On March 10th, Space.com posed the question "Will March 19 'Supermoon' Trigger Natural Disasters?"  The very next day, the third largest earthquake ever recorded struck Japan.  Many scientist have speculated the "Supermoon", set for peak arrival tomorrow, is causing gravitational disturbances because it is the closest the celestial body has been to the Earth in 18 years.



Pole Shift: 
As the magnetic pole continues to wander rapidly toward Russia, it has led to speculation that this might be leading to the record number of earthquakes seen in 2010, as well as the recent mega-quakes.   According to proponents of this theory, pole shift is a geomagnetic event that exerts pressure on the Earth's tectonic plates. As the pole wanders, the core and plates realign producing fluctuations and great upheaval until the crust can stabilize.  The lights in the sky that have been recorded just prior to earthquakes may be evidence of the natural harmonic activity of the geomagnetic flux.

HAARP: 
Researchers into the potential for earthquake creation cite HAARP and its various counterpart arrays around the world as a principal theory for recent mega-quakes such as those in Haiti, Chile, and now Japan.  HAARP is a billion watt microwave that bounces frequencies off the ionosphere.  Admitted functions are for ground penetrating radar, which some believe is a dangerous application that involves using frequencies that can disrupt the Earth's natural magnetic field.  In fact, the Department of Defense gave a briefing on the subject while discussing weapons of mass destruction in 1997.  As observable evidence of such atmospheric tampering, researchers point to the correlations between visual anomalies such as colorful light displays and a characteristic wave pattern with a "punch hole" evident in cloud formations associated with these recent mega-quakes.



Climate Change: Some climatologists believe that shifting ice caps can have an effect on tectonic activity because the massive weight of the ice is changing locations. Global warming alarmists have sought to pin the great Japan quake on the disappearing ice, however they seem to lose some credibility as polar ice is actually increasing according to U.S. Navy Polar Ice Prediction System. Yet, it seems feasible that even shifting ice, which appears to be moving in the direction of the North Pole shift, may indeed affect the flotation of the earth's outer crust.  This could conceivably cause some tectonic movement and be partially related to some earthquake activity.

Gas Fracking: Since September of 2010, nearly 800 earthquakes rattled Arkansas and the New Madrid Fault Line. The entire state only experienced 38 quakes in 2009.  Hydraulic fracturing is the most likely cause of increased earthquakes.  Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) pumps water and chemicals into the ground at a pressurized rate exceeding what the bedrock can withstand, resulting in a microquake that produces rock fractures.  A close look at Arkansas’ history of earthquakes and drilling reveals a shockingly noticeable surge in quake frequency following advanced drilling. Although, fracking is now a global technique for finding natural gas, it's unlike to be the cause of major earthquakes in Japan, New Zealand, Chile, or Haiti.

All Japanese home that got swept away in tsunami were made of woods...plain wood...the only structure that stood were schools, post office, hospital, police station etc...aka..all building with concrete structure.

If house are made with strong concrete with earth quake resistance buildings...the casualty would have been much much lower

Could be HAARP, though it seems unlikely. After all, what gain would there be for the military or the elites from destroying the world? However, we should still look at HAARP because it's very real and very scary. Here's an amazing article I found about HAARP that I highly recommend everyone read:

There is an earthquake war going on between China and the US. Look at the dates of the earthquakes starting with BAM in Iran, done by the US. China retaliated against Sumatra as a warning exactly to the year, day, and almost the hour later. The United States retaliated against China with the Sichuan quake. Now, to warn the US to not enter Libya, China struck Japan. The Us will retaliate causing a 9.1 or larger in China killing many people and children, and China will finally knock The Cumbre Vieja volcano on La Palma in the Canary Islands into the Atlantic which will take out the entire east coast with a tsunami ten times as high as Japan's, wiping out the entire east coast from Maine to the tip of Florida, including Langley, DC, Manhattan. These earthquakes were predicted, along with pestilences and famines, as WEAPONS OF WAR in the Bible. Nation shall rise against nation... When China takes out the east coast (and also the west) all out nuclear retaliation will begin and China and America will destroy the other. China has more people and more land and will rebuild first. America, never. LOOK AT THE DATES AND TIMES. THEY ARE NOT COINCIDENCES.

for those who believe in HAARP, how come they haven't hit Tehran with that and would rather hit their allies Japan? Tehran is also on fault lines.

The most likely event that can trigger such earthquake is the super-moon. It was predicted by many astrophysicists. It is quite straight forward. There is no other comparable theory out there.

It's a ranking of seriousness and how keen you are to dig in this subject.

If it is a man made disaster, biggest concern, we will not know till the curtain of such a show would have fallen.

Out of all we then would see the smoking gun and the unavoidable undressed laughter, claiming, I am the winner.

Rather than just start building in the same hap-hazardous methods as before the Japanese should use this terrible earthquake as an opportunity to utilize the damaged land in more efficient methods. The smart thing to do would be to not build in zones that are prone to tsunami flooding. These areas could be used as nature preserves and for rice,vegetable and wheat cultivation. Structures needed for these activities would be elevated and constructed of reinforced concrete. Carrying the concept even further they could build whole elevated concrete vertical cities where all living and business could be conducted above the harm of tsunami waves. The structural supports would be hinged in such a way to allow for earthquake vibrations and large shifts without major damage to the overall structure.

I'm wondering if the trillions of barrels of oil that has been leeched from earth is not also contributing to quake activity. I believe there are new arguments against the 'fossil' theory of the origin of crude oil, which makes more sense to me given that animal life forms, prehistoric or otherwise when they die tend to go back to 'dust' so to speak. That said, perhaps the crude oil, that can be reached by current technological processes, goes a little deeper than we can imagine, in as far as acting perhaps as the earths natural anti friction fluid between the crust's tectonic plates etc etc. Of course I'm no geological expert and this might seem quite a preposterous notion to the experts, or maybe plausible....who knows.

The real answer is that we have experienced over 20 years of increasing Space Weather delivering billions and billions of tons of plasma (charged sub-atomic particles) that is literally charging up the planet.

You need to find the most recent research being sponsored by NASA into how electric fields and currents in the magnetosphere, ionosphere and inside earth effect are all inter-related and how this relates to the new theories of why earthquakes happen.

At times, there is NO magnetic shielding (magnetosphere disappears) and we have NO protection against solar and cosmic blasts, the breaches are massive. This was predicted but of course as usual, hardly anyone was listening and/or interested in the consequences.

This is a massive subject and education is required to understand the full implications.

Major Events are happening faster and faster, both naturally, socially and politically. Some forms of thought about time like the Mayans or Buddhist's have measure time by the changing nature of things and by that reasoning time is truly speeding up. The powers that be both in nature or otherwise are not doing anything different that they always have, except that things are happening in tighter and tighter increments of time. This "Engine", if you will, is produced by Our collective Minds. Our real Minds, the one we do not know as we drown in an ocean of delusional selfishness.

We gorge on tortured animal flesh while drowning our minds in front of the TV, watching other people suffer and not really being aware of what is going on in the actual moment. This kind of Negative energy will return to us. We must join the present moment and generate compassion for other people and the earth constantly. This is Positive energy that means Everything. Do not entertain Fear with your thoughts, this only feeds the selfish powers of the world and effects nature negatively. I'm not speaking figuratively. We are One. Dualism and Separation are delusions of the habitual selfish mind. Eventually the whole earth will tremble but We will go on in our Learning experience. Dedicate your mind to compassion, dignity, moderation, unselfishness,respect, honor, non violence, etc. Meditate on the present moment and observe the Awakening of your Compassionate and altruistic Clean Clear Mind. We all have it, we always have.

Thank you Susan, I look forward to the reading. For a long time I have wondered the consequences of taking the fluids from inside the earth.

What about the LHC and the production of strengelets, that wil lead at uncontrob=alble evolution of the center of the Earth.
It si a juts a hypotese , but it is fundamented on very solid theoreticaly explanation.
Add such a phenomenon with others from outher space and our neiboughour Plantes , Son and therest of stuff, and there is the answer !
Somtehing is out there as well iside hier !

The main cause is the galactic alignment. Everything mentioned above hangs on this, plus the fact that "oil" is actually geologic "interstitial fluid".

You meditate all you want, but with 1.2 billion muslims on the planet planning our subjugation and submission to islam, thats not gonna solve the worlds problems...We are NOT One..Islam does not embrace that philosophy..time to get REAL! about the dangers we face..

The houses were made of wood to be earthquake resistant. A concrete house would need some massive and expencive supports to be earthquake resistant

tectonic plate movement is being driven by the magnetic effect of the ineraction of 2 magnets in motion-earth & incoming planet X. PX has a 3600 yr orbit and last passed between the earh & sun during the exodus. It is due by 2013! Japan will exprience several more megaquakes prior to the anticipated New Madrid, TN and calif. quakes.

I agree with Brian. Jesus said that earthquakes would be a specific sign of his imminent return. More of them and more frequently. In various places.

Earthquakes are not caused by shifting weather patterns or CMEs/solar flares. An earthquake is a physical/mechanical process; not chemical per se. Additionally, the moon cannot exert enough gravitational force to move geologic plates on earth (a smaller mass cannot generate a larger magnetic field than a larger mass). The external magnetic field of the Moon is very weak in comparison to that of the Earth.

It is plausible that a larger astronomical body could exert enough force on the earth (through repulsion)to result in significant earth changes, polarity shifts, changing weather patterns, etc.

hehe yep the shit is hittin the fan folkes the human infestation of earth is being delt a fatal blow , Its amazing that we as a species resemble a virus , we invade we overpoulate we destroy our own environment and then move to another place and the same again and again , mindless slaughter of our fellow humans lol. even tigers and over predators only kill for need of basic survival , but we are just sick killers and destroyers of a beutifull world . we dont deserve to have this gift of earth . i am truely embaresed to belong to this joke people call modern living FATHER THEY NO NOT WHAAT THEY DO

Anonymous said...

errrrr, the Moon doesn't create enough gravitational force to shift plates on Earth? If it can make entire oceans rise and fall by up to several meters (in itself creating huge shifts in weight and balance) why couldn't it affect the solid surfaces? Earth Tide does exist. Look it up.

The funny thing here is that we as humans somehow figure that we could be a factor in all this. The earth has been doing it's thing well before we came along and will continue to do so well after we have gone. A mere 228 years measuring earthquakes in a 4.54 billion year history of the planet and here we are scurrying around for answers to a question that is flawed to begin with.

@Mateo, it's been said, that some earthquakes appear at the same depth along the sea bed across long distances, thus being created by such a tech. rather than a natural quake occuring at many different depths across the same distance

I love the scientific explanations which each seem to have merit. And the Bible does predict such calamity. And a sincere and careful study of the Book of Mormon and the Pearl of Great Price would also reveal that similar prophecies have been given to man by the Creator of the very earth we describe. Thanks for the article, very thought provoking, but needs to be viewed in its greater context.

I believe since Michael Houser passed in 2002 there can only be two possible explanations:

1.) his harmonic lingering strat and volume pedal held the earth together in such a profound way that the tectonic plates couldn't be majorly fractured. Panic had to tour almost year round to maintain the energies to restrain this mother.

2.) god and the angels in heaven are trying to invite more roudy souls into that party

Just one big lol. What scientific proof for an increase in earthquakes is there?
More damage to infrastructure and a higher cost in human lives isn't the same as earthquake activety increase. All it implies is that .... exactly what it is. An earthquake that caused damages to man due it's strength and proximity.

Seeing how relatively small earth is, how widespread mankind is, it's only logical that some nations will be hit by earthquakes and following tsunami's.


Earthquake statistically speaking we've had a DECLINE in 2011 compared to the beginning of the 21st century. Global numbers have stayed between 15 and 33 thousand a year.

Show me REAL scientific proof that our tectonic plates are increasing in activity.
Not references to nations that were hit by a tsunami, it's not indicative of anything.
