    I understand why people choose to remain ignorant about Earth Catastrophe. It can be too much. Just visualizing how deep the ocean is can give you nausea in itself. I remember snorkeling one time in Maui, and staring into the deep blue trench in the distant. Chills down the spine.

      Amen to that…I screamed under water in the Maui mokekini crater when I looked at the deep side…people actually heard me. Lol.

    We should ask ourselves this question. What does crust displacement feel like? Probably like that Drop Zone thrill ride on a massive scale that our brains don’t wish to fathom.

    We live on the Coromandel NZ , and everytime we a have earthquake and doesnt even have to be in NZ you can rest asured the tone of the Blue in the sky changes to the most incredible colour , its still blue bur the density of it is out there , sort of the colur you get in the sky in the simsons movies kind of looks like its been painted , We live in small town on the east coast called Hahei where we dont have much if not any E M Fs interferences and this area is on a major layline also which helps the naked eye to see all this type of stuff, I put it down to the freqs that the eathquakes are pumping out from mother earth , and actually reaches into the ionsphere and effects every living DNA structure living on the planet , the amount of rainbows in recent times is out there also , which is proof that the 7 colours are coming into alignment which inturn effects everthing also and brings the TRUTH out in the physicial , its funny how the colours have been out of balance for so long, which means everything is simply controlled by the light .

    Sudden inflation in Hekla volcano: Jack @ Finland says:

    Check ISAK and HAUD graphs for GPS position. Someone noticed the bump approx. at at 2011.44 a while ago but there were no changes in other directions by then. Now we have a simultaneous movement to W at Isakot, and to S at Haukadalur. What’s up, Ms Hekla?

    I noticed it too! Increased inflation all of the sudden, very very interesting, let’s see what happens.

    You didn’t approve of the link, Alvin?

    anyone here noticed a lot of chemtrail activity lately? I have photos of these cloud formations taken just a couple of days ago and yes we are still living above the huge blanket of cloud….scary!!!

    Hello All,

    I have been a regular reader of this site for many months now and post very little. Firstly I would like to say this is the best site on the net for real news. I would like to get your opinion on something. I have been doing a lot of research into earthquakes, volcano’s, solar flares and such and feel I have a theory that I would like to put forward for comments.

    I feel that all of the tectonic and volcanic activity we have been experiencing lately is caused by a combination of the increased solar activity and the decreased magnetic field strength of the earth. I get the feeling that it work along the same lines as a microwave oven as you increase the microwaves power level it inturn causes the water molecules in the food being heated to vibrate faster which inturn cause the food to heat up(expand). So with the earth, as the magnetic field is weakening we are now being hit by more gamma radiation from the sun (increasing the microwave power level) which in turn is heating up the earth’s core. As this heating increases the magma becomes more fluid and expands which inturn cause the increase in volcanic and earthquake activity we are seeing because of the expansion (caused by the heating).

    What do you think?

    Sorry it such a long post but I think I have covered it all clearly.

    Alvin, so you don’t want any relevant news input from our local areas? Okay, so we will leave it to Luisport?



    • Gen, I very much want relevant news stories from all areas. Everybody wants to know what’s going on in the world around us- that’s the only way any of us can guage the magnitude of what’s unfolding.

    Hi Alvin, We have just had a 6.5 earthquake in the North Island of New Zealand this afternoon centred near Taupo and a 2.9 in Auckland that measured up to 5 near the epicentre. Melbourne and Victoria in Australia have also had shakes. Somethings getting ready to let rip we are getting reasonable to large size quakes up and down the country and they are generally pretty shallow
