QWhats with all these earthquakes? Perhaps the end?
With all these huge earthquakes recently and it just happened in California / Mexico , what is it really? Could it be a coincidence and bad luck ? or could this be the end , AKA 2012? I know a lot about 2012 and alignments that could cause all these things .. this could lead to it or just pure coincidence? Please do not preach religious superstitions ..
No more earthquakes recently than at any time in the past , in fact this year has been average_ _below in earthquakes . With the transmission of news and the Internet better than hearing a lot more about the recent disasters , but have been going through dozens every year since the beginning of the Earth .
It isn't the end, it is just the Earth doing what it has always done. The number and magnitude of earthquakes is not increasing. Our ability to detect them is greatly increasing. They are also being reported by the news media more rapidly and covered more widely. Earthquakes of the magnitude of the Haiti and Chile quakes happen on the average 2 to 3 times per year. It is just coincidence that these two occurred closely together.
Apparently you know less about 2012 than you think. There are no alignments in 2012 except for the apparent alignment that occurs on the December solstice every year. It causes no effects whatever. The 2012 doomsday scenarios are nothing but wild speculation by "scientifically impaired" people. The world isn’t going to end in 2012. The claims that scientists are predicting doomsday in 2012 are lies. Don't worry about it. It is just people making money off books, advertising, "survival kits", and whatever else they can dream up to sell.
"The USGS estimates that several million earthquakes occur in the world each year. Many go undetected because they hit remote areas or have very small magnitudes. The NEIC now locates about 50 earthquakes each day, or about 20,000 a year.
As more and more seismographs are installed in the world, more earthquakes can be and have been located. However, the number of large earthquakes (magnitude 6.0 and greater) has stayed relatively constant.
A partial explanation may lie in the fact that in the last twenty years, we have definitely had an increase in the number of earthquakes we have been able to locate each year. This is because of the tremendous increase in the number of seismograph stations in the world and the many improvements in global communications. In 1931, there were about 350 stations operating in the world; today, there are more than 8,000 stations and the data now comes in rapidly from these stations by electronic mail, internet and satellite. This increase in the number of stations and the more timely receipt of data has allowed us and other seismological centers to locate earthquakes more rapidly and to locate many small earthquakes which were undetected in earlier years. The NEIC now locates about 20,000 earthquakes each year or approximately 50 per day. Also, because of the improvements in communications and the increased interest in the environment and natural disasters, the public now learns about more earthquakes.
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."
2012hoax.org is a really good website that covers all the various claims about 2012 and about the charlatans who are promoting it. Go to it and read about the things that have you concerned. They give sources for their information and they aren't selling anything. The others are NASA Senior Scientist Dr. David Morrison, Dr. Donald Yeomans of JPL Near Earth Object Program, and Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Director of the Hayden Planetarium, all saying that the 2012 tripe is false.
well there has always been earthquakes in california all the time so its just nature that is occuring
but..........i live in california and there always talks about the BIG ONE and when theres a earthquake in california i always expect the worse but so far thankfully no damages have been caused by this earthquake in california but in mexico ive heard of minor damages and 3 deaths
anyways earthquakes are natural disaster cant do anything about them
