Quake enigma: The more it shakes, the less it shows


English: Location of Fukushima I Nuclear Power...

Just checking on the Fukushima NPP meltdown aftermath reporting, where it seems the minimal media exposure, downplaying radiation dangers and castigation of whistleblowers remains evident.

This post on RT.com seems worth studying.

A fair number of bloggers hint or even insist that the underwater event that triggered the tsunami was not natural but man-made in order to deliberately damage Japan. One possible motivation suggested was that Japan was not toeing the NWO requirement line. The possible man-made causes include a nuclear explosion or a HAARP incident.

So now we have entered the conspiracy theory realm. It is not yet my desire to go down that path, but I do find it interesting.

For now, I am keen to publish this post which just hints at the possibility of foul play. A good place to start the topic.

The 9.0 magnitude earthquake and the subsequent tsunami that devastated Japan’s east coast exactly one year ago were not supposed to happen. At least if seismic hazard maps are not cheating. But can modern science really predict such disasters?

­As Joel Achenbach noted quite rightly in his Washington Post article, Earth paid no heed to scientific orthodoxy. And while geologists were theorizing, a massive slab of our planet’s crust moved 55 meters (180 feet) eastwards. It lifted the ocean bed almost 5 meters up (15 feet), and that brought all the might of the waters of the Pacific upon Japan’s eastern coast.

The Tohoku area of Japan’s main island of Honshu suffered the most. The quake and the tsunami killed about 20,000 people and wiped out entire towns in several coastal prefectures. And yet no other consequence of this natural catastrophe inflicted so much horror around the world as the Fukushima nuclear crisis.

When the tsunami hit the Tohoku area, the destruction it caused led to wide-scale power outages. The latter caused failure of cooling systems of the Fukushima nuclear power plant and, eventually, a meltdown of the radioactive fuel inside the plant’s nuclear reactors.

­Science caught off guard

­The 2011 disaster that hit Japan was not the only one to humble the international scientific community. The same applies to a series of devastating earthquakes that took place at different times since 2004 – in the Indian Ocean, Haiti, China, and New Zealand.

In the aftermath of these disasters, and most of all the one that happened in Japan, geologists now feel the need to reexamine their basic knowledge pertaining to earthquakes.

“This is a humbling field. If you want to be smug, don’t be an Earth scientist, and certainly don’t be an earthquake researcher,” the Washington Post cited Ross Stein of the US Geological Survey as saying.

Seismic hazard maps usually show where quakes are most likely to strike over a certain period of time, as well as the expected intensity. However, some argue that these maps are nothing more than a description of past events and have limited value if we want to foresee disasters. The trouble is that some geological faults may endure thousands of years of strain before a catastrophic rupture.

Supporters, on the other hand, argue that such maps are better than nothing. They may help policymakers decide, for instance, where to direct their efforts in the construction of wave fortifications and see which buildings may require some form of seismic retrofitting.

So by reading the whole article, linked here, the reader will see that the scientists are having to rethink their “science” a little or maybe a lot.

The official story here does not touch on the possibility of an ‘un-natural’ cause. No doubt to be expected, as genuine scientists do not imagine such things.

Nevertheless, they may be overlooking an important element. If so it would be a shame to re-adjust scientific thinking because of an oversight.

Indeed we are in unknown territory, but I am happy to include this post because of its controversy potential. Another possible area of  truth being conspicuous by its absence, and it might just be the work of the ungodly in their quest for World Domination.
