Southern California Time Bomb: The Ground Surrounding The San Andreas Fault Is ‘Rising And Sinking’

Pacific Plate And The North American PlateIf you reside on the west coast, you are living on borrowed time.  As you will see below, stress has been building up along the San Andreas fault for more than a century, and scientists tell us that southern California is way overdue for a major earthquake.  When that stress is finally released, the U.S. Geological Survey says that we could be looking at hundreds of billions of dollars in damage.  If you follow my work regularly, then you already know that there has been unusual shaking all along the “Ring of Fire” so far in 2016.  But thankfully the west coast of the United States has been spared from a major disaster up to this point.  Unfortunately, scientists assure us that it is only a matter of time before one strikes, and that is why it is so alarming that the ground surrounding the San Andreas fault has been “rising and sinking”.  The following comes from the Los Angeles Times

For the first time, scientists have produced a computer image showing huge sections of California rising and sinking around the San Andreas fault.

The vertical movement is the result of seismic strain that will be ultimately released in a large earthquake.

The California coastline is where two enormous tectonic plates come together.  The Pacific plate and the North American plate are slowly but surely moving against one another, and this creates a tremendous amount of geological stress…

New observations confirm that the San Andreas Fault System, the massive tectonic boundary underneath much of California, is showing definite signs of movement, according to a post at the University of Hawaii’s website.

In data collected from the EarthScope Plate Boundary Observatory, a series of hundreds of measuring stations scattered throughout Alaska and the American West, researchers have found evidence of 125-mile-wide “lobes” of uplift and subsidence — that is, plates of land moving over and under one another.

Computer models that simulate the San Andreas Fault System have predicted this sort of crustal movement before. This new analysis is significant because it’s showing motion that wasn’t physically identified until now…

Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Derails California Commercial Crab Fishing

Just a few months ago, back in November of last year, the entire state of California placed an indefinite ban on crab fishing, ultimately putting their entire commercial crab season on hold in the process due to what state officials claim as ”dangerously high levels of algal toxins in the bodies of the crabs.”

“Crab is an important part of California’s culture and economy, and I did not make this decision lightly,” Charlton H. Bonham, the fish and wildlife agency director, said in a statement. “But doing everything we can to limit the risk to public health has to take precedence.”

Reportedly, they are placing the ban to protect the health of their people, but unfortunately, it turns out that the explanation that the state gave isn’t really the truth after news broke out that in fact, the ban was passed because of the radioactivity stemming from the 2011 Fukushima Nuclear Disaster and what they were really trying to protect was the “health,” so to speak, of the California seafood industry…

Fukushima Coverup

fukushima radiationAccording to a new report, the Japanese government worked in concert with TEPCO to purposely cover up the meltdown at Fukushima in 2011.

“I would say it was a coverup,” Tokyo Electric Power Company President Naomi Hirose announced during a press conference. “It’s extremely regrettable.”…

Blackout: California In Power Grid Emergency: “All Customers Should Expect 14 Days Without Power”

The entire Los Angeles metropolitan area and most of Southern California can expect blackouts this summer.

The power grid is under direct threat as a result of the unprecedented, but little reported, massive natural gas leaks at Alisco Canyon that was ongoing for  four months as an intense summer heat wave sets in…
