Enormous earthquake in Indonesia causes tsunamis
In the nine hours following the enormous earthquake off Sumatra, 14 aftershocks with magnitudes between 5.7 and 7.3 occurred along the arc from Sumatra towards Nicobar and Andaman Islands.
The string of seismic events began when an enormous earthquake occurred off the West coast of Sumatra today (26 December 2004) at 11:59am ESST (0.58 UT). It measured magnitude 9. - source

The tsunami crossed into the Pacific Ocean and was recorded in New Zealand and along the west coast of South and North America.
The earthquake was felt (VIII) at Banda Aceh and (V) at Medan, Sumatra and (II-IV) in parts of Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Maldives, Myanmar, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Thailand.
A mud volcano near Baratang, Andaman Islands began erupting on December 28. This is the fourth largest earthquake in the world since 1900 and is the largest since the 1964 Prince William Sound, Alaska earthquake. - USGS

"The White House has so far requested roughly $100 billion for the occupation of Iraq in FY 2005, which translates to about $8.3 billion per month, or over $270 million per day (eighteen times more than the administration's first offer of help to tsunami victims). And that's only Iraq. The US military budget request for FY 2005 was 420.7 billion dollars- double that of China, Russia, the UK, France and Germany combined."
U.S.: Stingy? Not with WMD and War, notes Heather Wokusch + UPDATE
"In an editorial in the New York Times Thursday the paper says...most Americans were under the impression, from recent polls, that the United States spends 24 percent of its budget on aid to poor countries; it actually spends well under a quarter of 1 percent, the newspaper said.
Bush administration officials help create that perception gap, the New York Times added. Responding to a comment by Powell that the United States 'has given more aid in the last four years than any other nation or combination of nations in the world,' the New York Times pointed out that for development aid, America gave $16.2 billion in 2003; the European Union gave $37.1 billion. In 2002, those numbers were $13.2 billion for America, and $29.9 billion for Europe.
Making things worse, the Times said, 'we often pledge more money than we actually deliver. Victims of the earthquake in Bam, Iran, a year ago are still living in tents because aid, including ours, has not materialized in the amounts pledged. And back in 2002, Mr. Bush announced his Millennium Challenge account to give African countries development assistance of up to $5 billion a year, but the account has yet to disburse a single dollar.' -

Brown unveils 'new Marshall Plan':
Buying off potentially uppity countries that threaten the corporations vision of globalisation?
Thu Jan 6 2005 - Mr Brown's package for the developing world will combine massively increased aid, fairer trade rules and debt write-offs to transform the prospects of poor countries, particularly in Africa.
"The true test of the international community will be how we can fund and assist both the immediate day-to-day emergency services needs but also the long-term reconstruction of these countries," he said.
Mr Brown's speech in Edinburgh comes ahead of a week-long trip to the African states of Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique and South Africa.
Tony Blair is at his monthly press briefing and is raising many of the same points. He has also fended off criticism for his decision to stay on holiday in the wake of the crisis and allegations of a delayed response to the plight of British victims and their families caught up on the crisis.
Mr Blair last night denied there was anything strange about the timing of his conference announced just yesterday to clash with the Chancellor's long-scheduled speech.
"It's not bizarre at all," he said. "There's an awful lot going on at the moment, and I shall be speaking a bit about Africa as well." - ITN

Flashback: The original Marshall plan: Defining the cold war
Originally, it was hoped that little would need to be done to rebuild Europe. It was hoped that Britain and France, with the help of their colonies, would quickly rebuild their economies. By 1947 there was still little progress, however. Drought in 1947 and a cold winter in 1947-48 aggravated an already poor situation.
One of the strongest motivating factors was the beginning of the Cold War. The American government had grown very suspicious of Soviet actions and concerned about possible communist domination of Europe. In both France and Italy the poverty of the post-war era had provided fuel for the communist parties who had seen significant electoral success.
The American government of Harry Truman began to be aware of these problems in 1946. The emerging doctrine of containment argued that the United States needed to substantially aid non-communist countries to stop the spread of Soviet influence.
CNN special - The Marshall plan
The Global Marshall plan - redefined by the war on terror?
Representatives from economic politics, science, media and non-governmental organizations around the world and across all party lines therefore met in 2003 to launch the Global Marshall Plan Initiative. The group included representatives from the Club of Rome, the Eco-Social Forum, ATTAC, BUND, and churches, as well as members of the German Federal Association for Economic Development and Foreign Trade, UN organizations, the European Parliament, and many other national parliaments.
Our goal is to establish a worldwide economic, political and civil system for a new era of cooperation which will achieve global security, peace and prosperity for everyone. The Global Marshall Plan is modelled after the success of the United States Marshall Plan for Europe after the Second World War and applies to the rest of the world the positive experiences of the European Union expansion processes. - source
A Marshall Plan for South Asia LA Times editorial
What better time to give the promise of 'modernisation' [see privatization: debt slavery, cronyism via infrastructural development] than after hundreds of thousand of people are seen to perish...
What better time to re-define soldiers, who were seen previously sweeping through Fallujah in Iraq [as 'Peace-keepers'], into 'humanitarian aid workers'...
The Original Marshall plan went hand in hand with the new scenario of a [pre-agreed?] MUTUAL Cold war of ideological polarity, which had the effect of controlling the entire planet.
A Global Marshall plan seeks not to respect the worlds poor countries right to peaceful autonomy, but rather through corporatist might seeks to gain political & economic advantage from a Humanitarian disaster...
These are the new rulers of the world...
There are times when one tragedy, one crime tells us how a whole system works behind its democratic facade and helps us to understand how much of the world is run for the benefit of the powerful and how governments lie.

Speculation Heats Up Over Who Will Head World Bank
With U.S. Trade Representative Robert Zoellick out of the running to succeed James Wolfensohn as World Bank head, speculation heated up over who will lead one of the globe's top lenders.
Officials said on Thursday Zoellick was set to be named deputy to incoming Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, ending months of rumors in Washington that he was set for the World Bank post.
The United States has traditionally filled the World Bank's top job as its biggest and most influential shareholder, while Europeans choose the head of the International Monetary Fund.
Western, Asian militaries at the sharp end of relief efforts
Jan 04, 2005 -
Militaries from the United States, Australia, Europe, Thailand, India and elsewhere have been deployed to help with the massive relief effort underway in Asia, with the personnel tackling the toughest obstacles to aid reaching survivors of the tsunami catastrophe.
Ships and aircraft designed for war have become key tools in conducting reconnaissance missions in remote areas of Indonesia and India, and bringing in desperately needed food, water and medicine.
At the same time, soldiers, marines and sailors have been putting logistical know-how to work to make sure supplies are spread around and that bottlenecks in ports and airports do not bring efforts to a halt.
UN to coordinate all international aid for tsunami |
Friday 7th January, 2005 - U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said the contributions of the group had been invaluable in the early response to the disaster, but added that now, The U.N. is in the lead with regard to the coordination of the humanitarian effort.
Up to $4 billion in aid has been pledged already, but Annan urged nations to quickly convert pledges to cash, saying the number of dead, estimated now at more than 150,000, could double if aid is not speedily delivered.
Participants at the conference are also discussing an early warning system for the region, as well as possible debt relief for the affected countries.
More than 20 leaders of donor and disaster-hit countries and international organizations are attending the Jakarta conference, including World Bank President James Wolfensohn, as well as the prime ministers of Japan, China, Australia and South Korea.
Blair promises to step up contribution ahead of summit
As world leaders gathered in Indonesia for the first global summit on the tsunami disaster, Tony Blair promised that Britain would give "hundreds of millions of pounds" to the victims.
Mr Blair made the pledge as he defended his decision not to cut his holiday short after the disaster. Britain, Germany and Australia have now substantially increased promises of aid to states devastated by the tsunami. Germany has now offered $674m, (357m) while Britain says its aid will expand hugely over the next few weeks.
Australia is now the biggest contributor, having pledged $765m (406m) to Indonesia, its neighbour. The one-day conference in Jakarta will be attended by top officials from donor countries, and global humanitarian groups, including Kofi Annan, the UN secretary general, the Australian Prime Minister, John Howard, the US Secretary of State, Colin Powell, and Jack Straw, the Foreign Secretary.
Altogether more than $3bn (1.6bn)has been promised so far. A major effort is now being made to distribute the aid as world leaders prepare to meet in Indonesia today.
Hypocrisy and self interest at tsunami summit in Jakarta
One of the more naked examples of predatory self-interest was provided by Australian Prime Minister John Howard who stole the media limelight in Jakarta with an offer of $A1 billion in aid to Indonesia. Howard was unapologetic about the fact that the money would not be channelled through the UN and that it would only go to Indonesia, not to any of the other affected countries. As far as Canberra is concerned, the tsunami disaster constitutes an ideal opportunity to press ahead with Australian ambitions for a more interventionist economic and strategic role within the region, especially Indonesia.
In comments yesterday, Howard declared that the aid program was a historic step in relations between Australia and Indonesia. The package$A500 million in direct aid and $A500 in loans over five yearswill involve the dispatch of Australian officials to Jakarta to supervise operations. Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer told the media that ultimately reconstruction would be an Indonesian responsibility, leaving no doubt that Canberra would hold the whip hand in the management of funds.
The last time Howard trumpetted his concern for the welfare of the Asian masses was in East Timor in 1999. Canberra seized upon the militia violence instigated by the Indonesian Armed Forces (TNI) to justify an Australian-led military intervention to secure its interests in the regionabove all, control over the Timor Sea oil and gas reserves. Five years after the Australian operation, the tiny independent statelet remains completely dependent economically and militarily on the major powers and the majority of East Timorese are still living in abject poverty.
Like other leaders at the Jakarta summit, Howard warmly embraced Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyonoa retired general prominent in the former Suharto dictatorship. Having secured Australian interests in East Timor, Howard has long since dropped any criticism of the role of the Indonesian military. No mention was made, by the Australian prime minister or any other leader, of the TNIs brutal war of repression in Acehthe Indonesian province devastated by earthquake and tsunami. As part of relief operations, Australian and US troops are now in Aceha key strategic area adjacent to the Straits of Malaccacollaborating closely with the Indonesian military, even though the latter is continuing its offensive against local separatist rebels. - WSWS
Tsunami Impact: Loss of Innocence in the Politics of Aid
According to Action Aid, more than 6.5 billion dollars aid was pledged by developed countries to 13 countries of the Indian Ocean affected during the tsunami disaster of December 26 last year, but so far only 17,000 dollars has reached the needy.

Global Apartheid marches on...
Current manifestations of global apartheid are ex-hibited in the dominance of bilateralism and the he-gemonic behavior of the United States, the unbalanced and undemocratic processes in the World Trade Orga-nization (WTO), and the disproportionate power of multinational corporations and the Washington-based international financial institutions (IFIs).
The current global apartheid predominantly has an economic face as opposed to the political face that characterised the imperial state during colonialism. However, it should be noted that, in this era of globalisation, both faces are sometimes manifested through undemocratic institutions.
The two faces of global apartheid are revealed through the denial of economic emancipation through debt cancellation and access to lifesaving medicines for people living mostly in black Africa. As if that were not enough, the sluggish response by the international community to the killing of innocent black civilians in Sudan's Darfur region and the Rwandan genocide are manifestations of the economic and political dimen-sions of global apartheid. - Mutasa - All Africa.com
At a recent Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on her appointment by Bush to the post of Secretary of State, Condoleeza Rice declared that the tsunami constituted "a wonderful opportunity to show not just the US government, but the heart of the American people." "And I think it has paid great dividends for us," she added. - Joe Vialls

Fresh tensions between government and rebels in the two countries worst hit by the tsunami disaster threaten to undermine aid efforts.
In Sri Lanka, the Tamil Tigers have warned of serious consequences if government soldiers are not withdrawn from welfare camps.
They also continue to complain that little aid has been sent to rebel areas, despite government denials.
In Indonesia, the government and rebels have accused each other of attacks.
The authorities say that separatist fighters in Aceh province are exploiting the tsunami disaster and have provoked skirmishes with Indonesian soldiers.
The Free Aceh Movement, or GAM, has made similar accusations about government troops.
Suprise suprise: Bin Laden makes an appearance on Dec 27th
In the tape aired on Al Jazeera on Dec. 27, Bin Laden reiterates his call to supporters to target oil installations in Iraq and the Gulf as a way to foil American plans to control and profit from them.
And in another tape on Dec 16, Bin Laden uses economic concepts to explain why the price of oil should be $100 a barrel.
He argues that while the prices of other commodities have multiplied, the price of oil decreased to as low as $9 per barrel in the 1990s.
The editor of Al-Quds Al-Arabi, Abdul Bari Atwan, agrees with Bin Laden, saying the United States is paying much less than the fair market value for Arab oil.
He argues that the United States manipulates oil prices by decreasing the value of the dollar and pressuring Saudi Arabia into pumping more oil.
Some Arab economists, however, question the wisdom of attacking oil installations in Iraq and the Gulf.
Egyptian economist Dr. Hussein Abdullah strongly argues against destroying Arab oil installations.
Instead Arabs should make sure that oil is sold at a fair market value, which he estimates to be $50 dollars a barrel.
Kuwaiti economist Dr. Sami Al-Faraj of the Kuwaiti Center for Strategic Studies says targeting Arab oil facilities "would be a waste of Arab resources and thus further weaken their ability to influence international events."
He adds, "This would only benefit other oil producing countries like Mexico and Venezuela.."
He cites the sabotage of Iraqi oil fields as an example - Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries increased their production quotas to accommodate the slump in Iraqi oil.

The Environmental Impacts of War
For centuries, war has involved not only human conflict but also environmental destruction in the forms of both 'collateral damage' and deliberate destruction of environments. Environmental destruction has been used as a war-winning strategy and as a punishment for defeated opponents. The Romans routinely destroyed the crops of their enemies to ensure their future dependence on Rome and the Russians have twice destroyed their own crops and homes in a "scorched earth" policy to prevent those resources from being useful to either Napoleon or Hitler. The near extinction of America's once vast herds of buffalo was, in part, linked to an assault against Indian tribes through their resource base.
As war has become increasingly technologically advanced so its impacts on the environment have become more severe and longer-lasting. In the case of the American war in Vietnam, the destruction of forest ecosystems with broad-leaf herbicides has directly impacted not only the ecosystems in which they were used, but also has had long-term effects on human health.
The environmental impacts of modern war can be grouped into three areas:
1) The consequences of preparing for war.
2) The immediate effects of war.
3) The aftermath of war.
Did Animals Sense Tsunami Was Coming?
Before giant waves slammed into Sri Lanka and India coastlines ten days ago, wild and domestic animals seemed to know what was about to happen and fled to safety.
According to eyewitness accounts, the following events happened:
Elephants screamed and ran for higher ground.
Dogs refused to go outdoors.
Flamingos abandoned their low-lying breeding areas.
Zoo animals rushed into their shelters and could not be enticed to come back out.

Biosystem Effects Associated With EMFs
Geoelectromagnetic signal information may play a survival role in: [45-47] navigation, migration/location/orientation, and biological rhythms. There is also anticipation and detection of subtle or catastrophic changes in seasonal variations, weather, hurricane/tornado, and earthquakes.
How much of this information do we humans use or react to unconsciously in our daily life and how much is trainable latent talent? Consider the excellent sensitivities of the Australian aborigines and martial arts masters. As understanding increases about our long-term health dependence on natural and artificial EMF factors, our environmental awareness will be increased (on several levels!).
Trends indicate, in insect, fish, bird, primates and human research that continual long-term exposure to EMF pulse rates, intensities and waveforms in specific ranges, may produce behavioral, physiological, and psychological reactions in the living systems exposed [25, 45, 46, 48-57].
EMF signal information between biosystems [45, 47] includes detection/avoidance of predators, self-protection, communication, detection/attraction of food and mates and establishing territory.
Discussion. Research to date, primarily on aquatic lower vertebrates, clearly indicates that these animals can sense very weak electric fields. So far, this ability has been found in many marine and freshwater fish, several amphibian species; and the platypus. Sharks and rays are most sensitive to frequencies below 50 Hz and stimuli to 1 microvolt per centimeter. Many electric fish emit signal pulses of a broad range of frequencies or in continuous waves of constant frequency depending on species. The discharge of an electric eel can be in excess of 600 volts. Studies of "specialists" such as electric fish will continue to provide insight fundamental to understanding the more complex nervous systems of higher animals, and finally, humans. - Human Sensitivities To Electrical & Electromagnetic Fields: Details and Research About Health Perils & Promises

newly formed Tinitus? Insight to the mystery of Ear Tones prior
to Earthquakes how they occur and why.
On November 28th, one month ago, Reuters reported that during a 3 day span 169 whales and dolphins beached themselves in Tasmania, an island of the southern coast of mainland Australia and in New Zealand. The cause for these beachings is not known, but Bob Brown, a senator in the Australian parliament, said "sound bombing" or seismic tests of ocean floors to test for oil and gas had been carried out near the sites of the Tasmanian beachings recently.
According to Jim Cummings of the Acoustic Ecology Institute, Seismic surveys utilizing airguns have been taking place in mineral-rich areas of the worlds oceans since 1968. Among the areas that have experienced the most intense survey activity are the North Sea, the Beaufort Sea (off Alaskas North Slope), and the Gulf of Mexico; areas around Australia and South America are also current hot-spots of activity.
The impulses created by the release of air from arrays of up to 24 airguns create low frequency sound waves powerful enough to penetrate up to 40km below the seafloor. The source level" of these sound waves is generally over 200dB (and often 230dB or more), roughly comparable to a sound of at least 140-170dB in air.
According to the Australian Conservation Foundation, these 200dB 230dB shots from the airguns are fired every 10 seconds or so, from 10 meters below the surface, 24 hours a day, for 2 week periods of time, weather permitting.
These types of tests are known to affect whales and dolphins, whose acute hearing and use of sonar is very sensitive.
On December 24th there was a magnitude 8.1 earthquake more than 500 miles southeast of Tasmania near New Zealand, with a subsequent aftershock 6.1 a little later in the morning that same day. - Earthquake: Coincidence or a Corporate Oil Tragedy?
Whales at risk in sonar sea exercises
It is one of the loudest sound systems devised by man, capable of sending a sonic boom so thunderous experts warn it can rupture the brains of whales hundreds of miles away.
Yet defence chiefs have earmarked a staggering 340m for a new submarine sonar system increasingly linked to a number of mysterious whale deaths. Experts yesterday condemned the decision to press ahead without even a public meeting into its effects. A single ping of the new low-frequency technology can affect animals across 3.8 million square kilometres of water, roughly the size of the Pacific Ocean.
The noise, far greater than any natural sound, has been linked to ear damage and harm to body tissue, and can trigger intense confusion. Startled whales surface too quickly and suffer the bends, a decompression sickness that affects deep-sea divers but was thought an impossible condition in whales.
Environmentalists believe the introduction of the new radar violates marine laws to which the UK has signed up. They point to a series of whale strandings that coincided with naval exercises involving sonar, to support their concern. During the latest, a fortnight ago, a NATO exercise off Morocco was followed by two dead whales being washed ashore on the nearby Canary Islands. source
Dead whales found after military exercises
The Natural Resources Defense Council has already secured an injunction limiting the U.S. Navys use of new low-frequency sonar that can travel vast distances through the oceans, and is now targeting the more common mid-frequency sonar.
This is the first time such a broad, diverse group (of scientists) has made this finding, said council lawyer Joel Reynolds. Navies of the world do back-flips to deny any connection.
The IWC, a 57-country intergovernmental body which regulates whaling, said earlier in the week that oil and gas exploration off Russias Pacific coast threatened a colony of gray whales with extinction due to sonar and pollution.
Energy firms blast noise waves down to the sea floor to detect the presence of oil and gas reserves.
The IWC expressed concern about energy activities in the Sakhalin Island region off Russia where Royal Dutch/Shell, Exxon Mobil and BP operate.
Its scientific report also identified oil and gas exploration near the Abrolhos Banks, a coral reef off Brazil, as a hazard for humpback whales and called on the government to protect the mammals from the noise.
EXPERIMENTAL BOMB TO CREATE HUGE TIDAL WAVE WAS TESTED IN 1944 |
SECRET WARTIME experiments were conducted off the New Zealand coast to perfect a bomb that could trigger devastating tidal waves, according to government files declassified in Auckland.
The New Zealand Herald, citing the files, said that senior United States defence officials believed the weapon had the potential to be as deadly as the atomic bomb. But the tsunami bomb, as it was known, was never fully tested and the war ended before the project was completed.
Its mastermind was Thomas Leech, an Australian professor who as the dean of engineering at Auckland University from 1940 to 1950. He was seconded to the New Zealand Army during the Second World War. He set off a series of underwater explosions that triggered mini tidal waves at Whangaparaoa, just north of Auckland, in 1944 and 1945.
The papers, stamped "Top Secret", show that America and Britain were keen for Seal to be developed in the postwar years. They even considered sending Professor Leech to Bikini Atoll to watch the US nuclear tests and see if they had any application to his work.
US denies foreknowledge of Asian tsunami|
Washington: The State Department denied on Friday that it had foreknowledge of the tsunami, but withheld it from South Asian countries, while warning the US base at Diego Garcia, thereby preventing damage to it.
It also denied that the tsunami was caused by underground nuclear tests, saying these allegations were utterly false and fell in the category of misinformation.
Todd Leventhal, State Department-designated Chief, Counter Misinformation/Disinformation Team told Daily Times that after the South Asian tsunami, two false misinformation allegations have arisen, first that Washington had foreknowledge of the impending disaster but held back the information and, secondly, that the giant wave was caused by a subterranean nuclear explosion.
Regarding the foreknowledge allegation, Leventhal said the facts are that scientists at the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) in Hawaii, which tracks earthquakes and the danger of tsunamis in the Pacific, detected the earthquake immediately. Their initial calculations were that it was an 8.0 quake, which is 10 times less powerful than the 9.0 quake it was eventually determined to be. Based on these calculations, their initial bulletin, sent 15 minutes after the quake occurred, judged that no destructive tsunami threat exists, referring to the Pacific Ocean region.

Q: Is it possible for a nuclear explosion to have triggered the Macquarie quake in some way and indirectly caused the changes that led to the Sumatra quake and the Asian tsunami?
A: It is possible that a very large explosion might have triggered the first quake directly in some way or that repeated prior testing could have induced changes that led to the quake indirectly, but research on the fall-out of nuclear testing is so highly classified that little is known of the possible impact. The U.S. has not ratified the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, leaving the door open to future U.S. testing despite an extended moratorium. There has already been a strong move toward resumption of testing since 2002. Now earth-penetrating nukes (bunker busters) and mini-nukes might provide the pretext. - Lila Rajiva

"The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face |
with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists."
J. Edgar Hoover
[Excerpt from BLACK GOLD HOT GOLD
In the 1920's an insider secret became known to a few people. It was published in an exhaustive world resources survey book written by a renowned world-traveling geologist named Hoover, who later became a US President. Not many copies were printed and few people read the book. The secret was that one of the world's largest potential oil fields ran along the coast of the South China Sea right off French Indo-China, now known as Viet Nam. But in the 1920's the method of deep sea oil drilling had not yet been developed. In 1945, the French still held small oil-poor Viet Nam as a colony. Laurence knew about Hoovers book and the off shore oilfields. The French could be driven out if the Vietnamese nationals, lead by Ho Chi Minh, could be supplied with weapons. Did the French know about this?
Laurence Rockefeller thought he could trick Ho Chi Minh by offering him the weapons to drive out the French and then in return Standard would take over the as yet undeveloped offshore fields. But in 1954 when Vietnamese General Giap finally defeated and drove out the French at Dien Bien Phu, Ho reneged on the deal. Since by then, everybody including the French, the Vietnamese, the Japanese and the Chinese had all read the same Hoover resource book and knew there was a vast supply of oil off the Vietnamese coast. Many people have wondered why the French have been so recalcitrant toward the US ever since French President Charles DeGaul wanted to pull out of NATO in the mid-1950's.
The Rise of Fascism in the American Energy Business]
Ho Chi Minh would not let Standard Oil simply walk in and walk off with all the Vietnamese oil. So as before, any country which owns the oil is branded as "communist" since they hold the oil as "community property" and won't allow private corporations, like Standard, to develop the fields and steal the oil. In this case, young American's themselves where "hired" directly to be the "fascists" to go fight the Vietnamese "communists."
The whole 20 year Viet Nam war from 1955 to 1975 was an oil scam. And all during the "war," Vietnamese General Giap fought the Americans with weapons he got from Laurence for a dollar. Did you ever wonder why the US, despite, greatly superior weapons, and the loss of 57,000 Americans and half a million Vietnamese, never won the "war?" Ever wonder why the US President issued such strange rules of engagement for the American troops that made sure they didnt win? Ever wonder why Henry Kissinger, a personal assistant to Nelson Rockefeller spent so much time in the Viet Nam/Paris Peace talks which never went anywhere but simply dragged on for years. Maybe winning the war wasnt part of the plan of the Empire of Energy. Maybe the timing of the war was more important.
In the 1950's a method of undersea oil exploration was perfected which used small explosions deep in the water and then recorded the sound echos bouncing off the various layers of rock below. The surveyor could then determine the exact location of the arched salt domes which hold the accumulated oil beneath them. But if this method were used off the Viet Nam coast on property Standard didn't own or have the rights to, the Vietnamese, the Chinese, the Japanese and probably even the French would quickly run to the United Nations and complain that America was stealing the oil, and that would shut down the operation. - book online

Fault Lubrication causes earthquakes
"lubricating" faults with water or some other substance, injecting high
pressure fluids deep into the ground is known to be able to trigger earthquakes
to occur sooner than would have been the case without the injection. However this
would be a dangerous pursuit in any populated area, as one might trigger a damaging
earthquake. - USGS|
60-billion-standard-cubic-foot-per-day facility near Aceh. In the span of four years the company extracts more than one cubic mile of natural gas from the formations beneath what has turned out to be the epicenter of the Aceh earthquake. The gas field there has been producing for much longer than four years, and is one of the largest such facilities in the world.
Scientists have known for some time that earthquakes in the order of 4.0 on the Richtor scale have been caused by oil drilling and other earth intrusive practices. - Indonesian Tsunami Probably Tripped by Exxon-Mobil Works
Earthquakes induced by human activity have been documented in a few locations in the United States, Japan, and Canada. The cause was injection of fluids into deep wells for waste disposal and secondary recovery of oil, and the use of reservoirs for water supplies. Most of these earthquakes were minor. The largest and most widely known resulted from fluid injection at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal near Denver, Colorado. In 1967, an earthquake of magnitude 5.5 followed a series of smaller earthquakes. Injection had been discontinued at the site in the previous year once the link between the fluid injection and the earlier series of earthquakes was established. - USGS

A Massive Earthquake 'Strongest since 1924' Hits Antartica
No scientific warnings...Major Media initially reports it, then buries it......
An earthquake strong enough to destroy a city rocked a remote stretch of ocean floor between Australia and the Antarctic early today, shaking buildings in the southern island state of Tasmania but causing no injuries, seismologists said.
The 8.1-magnitude quake hit 305 miles north of Macquarie Island just before 2 a.m. (1500 GMT), according to the US Geological Survey's Web site.
The earthquake was felt hundreds of miles away in the Australian state of Tasmania, causing buildings to shake for up to 15 seconds, said Cvetan Sinadinovski of Geoscience Australia.
However, no one was injured and buildings were in no danger of collapsing because the quake struck so far off the coast.
"If it happened underneath a population centre in Australia, this would probably have destroyed a whole city," Sinadinovski said.
He said it was the biggest quake anywhere in the world since one near the coast of Peru in 2001. The 8.4-magnitude temblor on June 23, 2001 killed 74 people, the US Geological Survey said.
The 22 staff of the Australian Antarctic Division – mostly scientific researchers spending the Southern Hemisphere summer on Macquarie Island, slept through the quake.
"Nobody felt anything," said Tony Press, a spokesman for the government-funded research organisation.
Sinadinovski said large earthquakes were common in the Macquarie Rise region, occurring every one or two years, but today's was the strongest quake there since 1924.
Macquarie Island is the exposed crest of the undersea Macquarie Ridge, at the meeting of two tectonic plates, and is the only place on earth where rocks from the earth's mantle – which normally is four miles below the ocean floor – are exposed above sea level, according to the Australian Antarctic Division's Web site. -

Earthquake-volcano link jolts Alaska scientists
February 25, 2005
Fairbanks, Alaska - There is mounting evidence that the earthquake that triggered a killer tsunami in the Indian Ocean on Christmas weekend also triggered a second earthquake in Alaska.
That second quake was minor, but the fact that it happened at all was a revelation to scientists, who believe it provides a window into understanding volcanoes.
The first earthquake took place in the Indian Ocean, some 6,000 miles from the University of Alaska Fairbanks. But UAF seismologists say that, an hour after that massive quake occurred, they could actually detect the entire state of Alaska undulating up and down, rising and falling an inch or more every 30 seconds for several minutes.
The power that represents over such a distance is astounding, even to researchers.
But the quake did something more, something that scientists have not seen at that incredible distance. It actually triggered a second earthquake beneath Mount Wrangell, a 14,000-foot volcano about 50 miles east of Glennallen. - source

Iceberg B15A on collision course?
preparing the cover story?
It is an event so large that the best seat in the house is in space: a massive iceberg is on a collision course with a floating glacier near the McMurdo Research Station in Antarctica. NASA satellites have witnessed the 100-mile-long B-15A iceberg moving steadily towards the Drygalski Ice Tongue. Though the iceberg's pace has slowed in recent days, NASA scientists expect a collision to occur no later than January 15, 2005.
The B-15A iceberg is a 3,000-square-kilometer (1,200-square-mile) behemoth that has a history of causing problems. It is the largest fragment of a much larger iceberg that broke away from the Ross Ice Shelf in March 2000. Scientists believe that the enormous piece of ice broke away as part of a long-term natural cycle (every 50-to-100 years, or so) in which the shelf, which is roughly the size of Texas, sheds pieces much as human fingernails grow and break off.
The berg initially drifted toward McMurdo Sound and grounded near Cape Crozier on Ross Island. It has since broken into pieces, the largest of which is B-15A.
High Strangeness: Earthquakes Man-made in Antartica|
Chang's mountaintop experience
By Debbie Quimby, ERDC PAO
Mr. Feng-Keng (Frank) Chang retired from the Geotechnical and Structures Laboratory in 1992, after 25 years of service to the federal government. But many years before he came to work for GSL, Chang had an opportunity to go where few men had gone before Â- the Antarctic.
In 1957, Chang was a graduate student at St. Louis University, enrolled in the Department of Geophysics and Geophysical Engineering. At that time, scientists from around the world were planning to conduct geophysical studies at the North and South Poles in an effort to improve their understanding of the earth and its environments. This endeavor, named the International Geophysical Year (IGY), ran from July 1957 to December 1958.
Chang was accepted into the program, and after two months training, he and his colleagues joined the last expedition of the IGY-Horlick Mountain Traverse in December 1958. This effort, and others to follow, was commonly known as Deep Freeze IV. Chang's job as Chief Seismologist was to conduct seismic, gravity and magnetic explorations on the Marie Byrd Land Traverse from 1959 to 1960. Chang's group made two traverses into the Antarctic. Between traverses, scientists stayed at Byrd Station, analyzing data, calibrating and repairing equipment.
His group consisted of 23 scientists, all operating out of Byrd Station. From December to midsummer, Chang worked closely with glaciologists to estimate the thickness of the Antarctic ice through the observation of artificial earthquakes.
The method commonly used for determining ice thickness was known as seismic "shooting." Developed primarily for finding oil deposits, the technique was borrowed by scientists to measure glacier depths. Chang would generate a small-scale earthquake, then measure the time it took the resulting vibrations to travel through the ice to the underlying rock and back to the surface. This "earthquake" was generated by electrically fired explosives, ranging in size from a few grams to many pounds. TNT was the explosive of choice, since it had less risk of accidents than other explosives in the extremely cold conditions.
Earthquake proof labs to deal with shifting Ice flows|
German scientists are adapting a habitat designed by the European Space Agency to replace the aging Neumayer II Research Station a snow-covered pair of metal tubes buried amongst the snow of the Ekstrom Ice Shelf in Antarctica's Atka Bay.
ESA's insect-like SpaceHouse habitat is designed to be nearly earthquake proof to deal with shifting ice floes and borrow materials and energy technologies originally developed for the agency's space missions.
"We initially started with earthquakes," said SpaceHouse designer Fritz Gampe, a senior technology transfer officer with ESA. "One of the critical points is that the lower floor plus the legs form a rigid structure with the outer shell."
Space habitat headed for Antarctica
After the war the most massive assault on the continent, "Operation Highjump," was launched.
There were 13 ships including a carrier and a submarine (!) as well as 19 aircraft and 4000 men who
went south on a massive mapping and survey mission during the 1946-47 summer. A new tent camp at
Little America IV was occupied north of the earlier bases, to support some of the flight operations.
Unfortunately the expedition results were not the best, partly because of the lack of ground control
so that the aerial photography could be coordinated with known landmarks, and partly because there
was limited emphasis on science. In the next few years a second smaller Navy project, Windmill,
sent icebreakers to further explore the coastline, and Finn Ronne took a private expedition to
East Base. However, the "Highjump II" expedition scheduled for 1949-50 was cancelled for political
and economic reasons.
IGY planning originated in the international scientific community, based on two previous "polar years"
in 1882-83 and 1932-33. Not wanting to wait another full fifty years, they eyed the period 1957-58
partly because it was a time of peak solar activity. The US scientific organizations involved included
the US National IGY Committee and the separate National Program which was more directly concerned with
mapping of Antarctica to document future US territorial claims. Eventually the IGY station sites were
selected; although some of the scientists initially proposed a station at Pole, that idea did not get
turned into reality until a Paris IGY scientific conference. The USSR delegation, which had arrived
late, announced their intentions to build a station at Pole, and immediately the French conference
chairman announced that the committee members "have accepted the offer of the United States to erect
and man a South Pole Station." Remember that this was during the height of the cold war. At this
point in time the US had not committed to build Pole, but now the "impossible" had suddenly been
turned into a political necessity. Then as now the scientific funding came from Congress to NSF,
which allocated it out primarily to other government agencies. The support funding went through
DOD to "Task Force 43" the overall Navy command for "Operation Deep Freeze."|
By the way, there is a bit of trivia behind the name "Operation Deep Freeze."
The original name assigned by the Navy to the Task Force 43 operation was Project Longhaul,
indicative of the long logistics pipeline between the United States and Antarctica. Before
operations began, the name was changed to Operation Deepfreeze. When the Amana Corporation notified
the Navy of a copyright infringement, the name was changed further (about October 1956) to Operation
Deep Freeze. (from US Aircraft Losses in Antarctica, Peter J. Anderson, NSF AJ, 1/74)

Origins of the Universe? Like the Tesla project?
"For the 3877 million Euro project (or around 7600 million German marks) spread over a time period of
ten years, under the overall leadership of Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) in Hamburg, a 33
kilometre long tunnel has to be built between 10 and 30 meters below ground, following the curvature
of the earth. Forty - one scientific institutes from nine countries have already been involved in the
research and development work on the TESLA linear accelerator. When the highly accelerated electrons
and positrons collide head-on, they form a "ball of fire" of extremely highly concentrated pure energy.
This simulates the concentration of energy during the first trillionth of a second after the beginning
of the universe. As happened in the big bang, new elementary particles emerge from this energy.
The physicists can thus simulate the beginnings of the cosmos and carry out experiments to examine
all of this in great detail." -
All the intrigue centers around a fairly recent, but potentially "breakthrough" discovery on that faraway Continent. In 1957, the Russians built a base in eastern Antarctica which they named "Vostok" (East), which also happens to be the name of the first series of manned Russian spacecraft. In the 1970's, via airborne radar surveys, they belatedly began to suspect that they had "inadvertently" (as the story goes) built their base at the tip of a large subglacial lake. In the years since, orbital radar mapping (shown below) combined with surface seismological measurements have confirmed that "Lake Vostok," under over two miles of solid ice, is the largest lake discovered in the last 100 years -- roughly the size of Lake Ontario but much deeper in places (more than 3000 feet!), with about four times the volume.

The Suns 11 year itch...
In the sun, 91% of the energy is produced by the proto-proton chain and the rest by the carbon cycle. Solar
flares consisting of electrically neutral, Ionized hydrogen (protons and electrons), enhance the solar wind.
Accompanying any solar flare is a pulse of electromagnetic radiation that takes eight minutes to reach the
Earth. The enhanced solar wind arrives one or two days after this magnetic pulse and disturbs the Earth's
geomagnetic field. very large solar flares are called proton events. A proton event can destroy 20 per cent
of the Earth's ozone in a matter of a few days.
The sun's magnetic field varies with sunspot activity and act actually reverses every 11 years. Because it
takes 22 years to return to its original state, the sun's magnetic cycle is 22 years, rather than 11. More
recently scientists have found a relationship between the 11-year sunspot cycle and weather patterns across
the Northern Hemisphere. Fluctuations in solar output may account for climatic changes over time scales of
decades and centuries.
To date, many theories have been proposed linking solar variations to climate change, but none have been
proven. However, instruments aboard satellite and solar telescopes on the earth are monitoring the sun to
observe how its energy output may vary.
Sun's magnetic field is generated by a dynamo located at the bottom of the convection zone, which lies roughly
30% of the distance from the solar surface to the solar core. The strength and structure of the resulting
magnetic field is determined by the solar surface. The differential rotation produces a toroidal field near
the base of the convection zone. The convection zone has a very high thermal conductivity and heat capacity.
Would that help explain the illuminati obsession with the number 11

The Charged Atmosphere as dynamo
The positive and negative ions in the atmosphere are accelerated in opposite directions by the earth electric field. The electric conductivity of the atmosphere below about 70 km. height is mostly in all directions where positive and negative small ions contribute nearly equally to the electric conductivity. There is an increase of conductivity with increasing latitude due to the increase of the ion density with latitude dependent on the cosmic ray intensity.
At an altitude of about 100 km. the electrons drift at right angles to the earth's magnetic field, while the ions move in the direction of this earth field. This area of peak amplitude is called the dynamo region where there is this range of peak parallel conductivity along the geomagnetic field lines of electric equipotential. The direction of the geomagnetic field changes from horizontal at the equator to vertical at the magnetic poles. Since the vertical current cannot flow out of the dynamo region, a polarization charge is built up on both boundaries of the dynamo region causing a vertical electric polarization field with the earth's surface. Amplification of electric current at the geomagnetic equator occurs within this dynamo region.
Thunderstorms behave like batteries which are connected with the highly conducting ionosphere and earth via the barely conducting lower and middle atmosphere. The passive electric contineous current flowing outside the thunderstorm regions down to the earth is part of the global electric circuit. In fair weather regions far away from thunderstorm areas, one measures a downward-directed current density which is believed to be driven by the global thunderstorm activity. This current density is remarkably constant with height. Since the air is electrically conducting, the current is accompanied by a downward-directed electric field of the order of 100 volts per meter on the ground. The average potential between ground and the ionosphere, called the atmospheric electric potential is 240 kV. but varying between about 180 and 400 kV. The electric field on the earth's surface is always at right angles to the ground. This indicates that the earth's surface behaves like an electric equipotential layer for continuous electric fields with greater electric current density at higher altitudes along the surface. One source of the space charge near the ground is due to the electrode effect. The negative ions drift upward and the positive ions drift downward under the influence of the vertical electric field.
Manipulating the Ionosphere
Tesla also envisioned a way to send electricity through the air and through the Earth so that electrical power would be available everywhere, even in remote corners of the planet. This technology, which was only understood by Tesla himself, was incorporated in another famous experiment in 1908, where Tesla attempted to remotely light up the sky over the North Pole as a way of demonstrating this wireless power transmission technology to the world. At the time, Admiral Peary was leading an expedition to the Arctic and Tesla hoped that Peary would report on the phenomenon when he returned.
Many believe that Tesla's experiment that evening caused the world's largest man made explosion in the remote Siberian village of Tungusta. Read more about that HERE.
If Tesla's power beam really did accidentally cause the Tungusta explosion, then we witnessed the first experimental use of the same weapon system has been developed by the US Department of Defense in Alaska's remote Poker Flats area, just North of Fairbanks. (See HAARP: A weapon of Total Destruction.) Although the capacity for destruction in Tesla's primitive prototype (some estimate equal to a large hydrogen bomb) was huge, this new military system is almost surely many magnitudes greater. Also, many similar systems have been deployed in a dozen specific locations around the globe -- presumably to be operated together for some undisclosed purpose. One can only hope that this new technology will be used for a peaceful purpose and that it will bring the respect for Tesla that has so far eluded him.
|Earth's magnetic halo is generated in its core of molten nickel-iron alloy. Currents driven by Earth's rotation, like a dynamo, spread the magnetic field far into the surrounding space. Billions of cosmic rays bombard Earth every second; they are guided by the magnetic field and pulled into tightening spirals toward the polar regions. The highly energetic charged plasma flowing out from the Sun and charging past the Earth's magnetic field act as a gigantic natural generator whose power continually drives the auroral currents. Sometimes the enormous energy pump runs in low gear (quiet aurora); sometimes it will rev up with heightened solar activity, thereby increasing the flow of plasma out of the plasmasheet and driving the auroral discharge more powerfully.
The aurora is a natural, visible manifestation of a large electrical-current system that is continually pumping millions of megawatts of electromagnetic power into the upper polar atmospheres, exceeding the total electrical generating capacity of the United States. Auroras begin on the Sun, where the energy spirals away into interplanetary space at hundreds of miles per second; four days after it leaves the sun, this high speed stream of solar wind reaches the vicinity of the Earth where the plasma collides with and moves around the planet's magnetic field. The high-speed solar wind reshapes the field into a comet-shaped cavity called the magnetosphere. The sunward shock front extends some 10-15 earth radii into space, while the night-side magnetotail stretches out beyond 60 earth radii (Re), reaching beyond the Moon's orbit.
EARTH POWER SPECTRUM
AND ITS POTENTIAL AS A USABLE ENERGY SOURCE
A CHANGING magnetic field does create an electric field, and therefore CAN impart energy. Magnetic storms involve such changes, and can drive "Earth currents" which have been measured. They can even add (at near-polar latitudes) extra currents to the electric grid, which have been known to cause damage, because they resemble DC, and the grid is designed for AC.

In 1902, Tesla wrote to his friend and publisher Robert Underwood Johnson that he had already developed a device for using the energy of the surrounding medium to generate electricity. In the letter he stated that the design principles for this new type of generator were discussed in his June 1900 Century Magazine article (Tesla, 1902) on page 200, "particularly where I refer to novel facts."

Teleforce was Nikola Tesla's charged particle beam projector, first mentioned in the New York Sun, July 10, 1934. As can be seen from Tesla's words written in a letter to J. P. Morgan, Jr., the Teleforce invention was primarily intended to be used as an instrument of national defense akin to an invisible "Chinese Wall of Defense". Tesla stated that nations, when detecting invading armies, could destroy their opponent's military units and reduce incoming aerial craft as far as 200 to 250 miles away. It is not known whether Tesla ever built a model of the Teleforce system, though in 1937, Tesla remarked, "But it is not an experiment ... I have built, demonstrated, and used it. Only a little time will pass before I can give it to the world." - source
Tesla claimed a method to transmit mechanical energy with minimal loss over any terrestrial distance, allowing for a new means of communication and a technique for the location of subterranean mineral deposits. Tesla's mechanical power transmission system, he dubbed it the "art of telegeodynamics," was based primarily upon his reciprocating engine invention, patented in 1894. While the fundamental operating principles of Tesla's mechanical oscillator are well understood, little has been said about how the machine would have been used for underground prospecting.

|Storms, Earthquake, Tsunamis as population control?
What follows is part of an article and interview with Tesla by Allan L. Benson,
published in The World To-Day, Vol. XXI, No. 8, February 1912, Page 1763-1767.
The principle embodied in [experiments with resonance] interested Tesla, and he
determined to try it upon a larger scale. He ordered from a steel company a
steel link, two feet long and two inches thick. He was careful to specify that
the steel should be of the best quality. As a matter of fact, the link was
strong enough to bear a weight of hundreds of tons.
Tesla fastened to this link an electric vibrator, no larger than an alarm-
clock, but so constructed that the frequency of the vibrations could be altered
at will. He set the vibrator to going and then began to vary the vibrations
for the purpose of getting the vibrator in "tune" with the link. For a long
time, nothing happened -- the vibrations of the link and of the machine did not
chance to coincide. But at last he got them together, the great steel link
began to tremble, increased its trembling until it dilated and contracted like
a beating heart -- and finally broke!
Sledge hammers could not have done it; crowbars could not have done it, but a
fusillade of taps, no one of which would have harmed a baby, did it.
Tesla was pleased. He had learned something. He wanted to learn more. He put
his little vibrator in his coat pocket and went out to hunt a half-erected
steel building. Down in the Wall Street district, he found one -- ten stories
of steel framework without a brick or a stone laid around it. He clamped his
vibrator to one of the beams, and fussed with the adjustment until he got it.
"In a few minutes", he said, "I could feel the beam trembling. Gradually, the
trembling increased in intensity and extended throughout the whole great mass
of steel. Finally, the structure began to creak and weave, and the steel-
workers came to the ground panic-stricken, believing that there had been an
earthquake. Rumors spread that the building was about to fall, and the police
reserves were called out. Before anything serious happened, I took off the
vibrator, put it in my pocket and went away. But if I had kept on ten minutes
more, I could have laid that building flat in the street. And, with the same
vibrator, I could drop Brooklyn Bridge into the East River in less than an
Tesla says that he can split the earth in the same way -- split it as a boy
would split an apple -- and forever end the career of man.
This seems like quite a large order -- but see what he says about it.
"The vibrations of the earth," said he, "have a periodicity of approximately
one hour and forty-nine minutes. That is to say, if I strike the earth this
instant, a wave of contraction goes through it that will come back in one hour
and forty-nine minutes in the form of expansion. As a matter of fact, the
earth, like everything else, is in a constant state of vibration. It is
constantly contracting and expanding.
"Now, suppose that at the precise moment when it begins to contract, I explode
a ton of dynamite. That accelerates the contraction and, in one hour and
forty-nine minutes, there comes an equally accelerated wave of expansion. When
the wave of expansion ebbs, suppose I explode another ton of dynamite, thus
further increasing the wave of contraction. And, suppose this performance be
repeated, time after time. Is there any doubt as to what would happen? There
is no doubt in my mind. The earth would be split in two. For the first time
in man's history, he has the knowledge with which he may interfere with cosmic
I asked Tesla how long he thought it would take him to split the earth in two.
He said he didn't know. Months might be required; perhaps a year or two.
"But in a few weeks," he said, "I could set the earth's crust into such a state
of vibration that it would rise and fall hundreds of feet, throwing rivers out
of their beds, wrecking buildings, and practically destroying civilization.
"The principle cannot fail. It is as powerful when applied to the earth as it
is when applied to a [violin note shattering a] wineglass, a [boy pushing a man
on a] swing, or a steel link. Any one who doubts should only bear in mind the
illustration of the swing. A small boy, by each time adding a pound to the
force with which a 200-pound man swings, can soon set the man swinging with the
force of 500 pounds. It is necessary only to keep adding a little force at the
right time." - Text Files
Tesla a champion of Eugenics
There is no conflict between the ideal of religion and the ideal of science, but science is opposed to theological dogmas because science is founded on fact. To me, the universe is simply a great machine which never came into being and never will end. The human being is no exception to the natural order. Man, like the universe, is a machine. Nothing enters our minds or determines our actions which is not directly or indirectly a response to stimuli beating upon our sense organs from without. Owing to the similarity of our construction and the sameness of our environment, we respond in like manner to similar stimuli, and from the concordance of our reactions, understanding is barn. In the course of ages, mechanisms of infinite complexity are developed, but what we call "soul " or "spirit," is nothing more than the sum of the functionings of the body. When this functioning ceases, the "soul" or the "spirit" ceases likewise.
I expressed these ideas long before the behaviorists, led by Pavlov in Russia and by Watson in the United States, proclaimed their new psychology. This apparently mechanistic conception is not antagonistic to an ethical conception of life. The acceptance by mankind at large of these tenets will not destroy religious ideals. Today Buddhism and Christianity are the greatest religions both in number of disciples and in importance. I believe that the essence of both will he the religion of the human race in the twenty-first century.
The year 2100 will see eugenics universally established. In past ages, the law governing the survival of the fittest roughly weeded out the less desirable strains. Then man's new sense of pity began to interfere with the ruthless workings of nature. As a result, we continue to keep alive and to breed the unfit. The only method compatible with our notions of civilization and the race is to prevent the breeding of the unfit by sterilization and the deliberate guidance of the mating instinct, Several European countries and a number of states of the American Union sterilize the criminal and the insane. This is not sufficient. The trend of opinion among eugenists is that we must make marriage more difficult. Certainly no one who is not a desirable parent should be permitted to produce progeny. A century from now it will no more occur to a normal person to mate with a person eugenically unfit than to marry a habitual criminal. - A MACHINE TO END WAR

The Earth as a weapon in 21st Century of Wars
According to Dr Rosalie Bertell, [renowned scientist and nuclear activist], While some of the events of 1996 may have been acts of God, certainly, the overall volume and ferocity was anything but normal. Because of the intimate connection between the Earths atmosphere and its weather, it is not surprising to find that military activities have had an impact on local and regional weather patterns, she writes.
The fact that military activities can cause freak weather by accident as well as deliberately as part of geophysical warfare, is indeed a frightening prospect for the planet. More so, when we know so little about the natural cycles of Earth and the impact of human activities on it to make good predictions of what will happen when human activities interfere with them, she says. Moreover, such predictions are based on the natural history of our planet and are meaningless in the face of random experimentation on major Earth systems in the upper atmosphere and the bowels of the planet, she adds.
Clearly, the military is also contributing to some of the most intractable survival problems of the twenty-first century, she notes. - twnside.org
Scalar War in Indonesia? by Shadow & Pax
HAARP Suspected in Earthquake
"geologists are afraid to say something ridiculous along the lines of "sunspots cause earthquakes," despite the fact that, in a certain sense, they do... radio wave propagation (e.g. ionsospheric "whistlers") does appear to play a role in earthquakes, and it can be studied by closely monitoring the impact of the solar wind on the ionosphere. The geomagnetic changes prior to earthquakes may disturb both animals and human "sensitives," which can be seen in the 'precognitive' dreams and weird animal behavior which immediately precede the quakes. Gravitational changes may be involved as well, with the "dips" and "hills" in the field shifting with the wobble of the planet's axis or tidal forces from the moon and planets."

|Update: Predicting earthquakes from space
16:30|31/ 03/ 2006 MOSCOW. (Yury Zaitsev for RIA Novosti.) -
A Russian strategic nuclear-powered submarine is poised to launch an innovative, compact, 80-kg spacecraft from the Barents Sea in the second quarter of this year. The Compass 2 satellite is expected to help make the first step in the practical forecasting of earthquakes from space.
The move comes as a result of extensive research into specific phenomena in the Earth's magnetosphere and ionosphere, often observed prior to earthquakes, by the Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism, Ionosphere and Radio Waves Propagation (IZMIRAN) of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
The first observations of ionosphere anomalies manifested days before major earthquakes date back to the 1960s. At first, treated no more seriously than UFOs, palm reading and astrology, the findings elbowed their way into the scientific domain in 1979 as the institute launched its Interkosmos 19 satellite. A recording analyzed after one major earthquake showed a prolonged area (narrow in latitude and very broad in longitude) of abnormal, low-frequency noise centered exactly above the earthquake's epicenter several hours before the first shock was felt. Officially registered as a scientific discovery, the phenomenon was later confirmed by findings from other satellites.
This area of research received a powerful push in December 1988 in the wake of a devastating earthquake in Armenia. A pool of Soviet scientific institutions developed a forecasting system that was to be deployed first onboard the Mir orbiter and then across the orbit within a network of unmanned spacecraft. After the Mir, Salyut 6, and Salyut 7 completed the early stages of the plan, the program was effectively buried with the demise of the Soviet Union, but went forward at the end of the turbulent 1990s.
While other precursors of major earthquakes - the concentration of radon, an inert gas, near the epicenter; the concentration of electrons in the ionosphere above the epicenter; and the content of crust-emitted metal-rich aerosols in the air, leading to an abnormally strong electric field there - had been piling up for a long time, they were always obtained as by-products of other research programs. Sufficient statistical data array required a separate specialized satellite.
In 2001, the institute took the lead in the effort, committing to make a satellite and inviting the Makeyev State Missile Center (Miass, Urals) to convert the Shtil (SS-N-23 Skiff) military missile into a launch vehicle for the project. Later, however, Makeyev also had to develop the satellite under the effort codenamed Vulkan (Volcano) in the Russian Space Agency's 2001-2005 Federal Space Program.
The first international Complex Orbital Magneto-Plasma Autonomous Small Satellite, or Compass, was orbited in December 2001 as a by-load together with the Meteor 3M, a Russian weather satellite, to provide insight into possible links between Earth's crust and magnetosphere behavior. This first field test of an earthquake forecast assessment system largely failed because, while early findings were very promising, the equipment developed jointly by Russia, Hungary, Greece, Ukraine and Poland soon ceased to operate.
Certain progress was made, however, as the data of Compass's launch mate, Meteor 3M, were analyzed by special methods to obtain earthquake precursors. On aggregate, 44 of 47 events registered between October 2002 and May 2003 agreed with data retrieved from land-based seismic records. The generally positive result has led to the upcoming Compass 2 launch and is likely to lead to a follow-up Compass 3 effort. The latter satellite is to be launched in the fourth quarter of 2006 to test more modern and efficient monitoring systems.
The International Space Station has also been long helping collect ionosphere information. Thanks to the ISS's low orbit, some research programs crucial for the future Vulkan disaster forecasting system have been conducted here as part of a broader effort codenamed Uragan (Hurricane).
On the ground, the Vulkan will include a network of geophysical laboratories, a downlink station and an analysis center. The ground facilities lack the scope and access to recordable events, which explains the need for an orbital component to yield a global survey of seismic activity with accurately timed warnings (one to five days between a precursor and a possible earthquake). All in all, two groups of small satellites are to be deployed at 400-500- and 900-1,000-km solar synchronous orbits.
When fully operational, the Vulkan's ground and spaceborne components will collect, process and analyze the disaster precursor data, thus contributing to medium-, long- and short-term plans of emergency management services in Russia and internationally.

Geophysical prospecting: Utilization of various techniques to explore the upper few kilometers of the earth for natural resources, environmental, and engineering problems.
Electromagnetic prospecting (EMP) is a technique for identifying the composition of deep underground structures in order to detect, quantify and monitor hydrocarbon (and other mineral) deposits. In this method electromagnetic fields are measured at multiple points on the earth’s surface over the area of interest using Superconductive Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs). These measurements are used to deduce the electrical conductivity of geological layers down to depths of several thousand metres. - QUANTUM PROSPECTING LTD / CRYOTON (UK) Ltd
Radar uses electromagnetic waves, which are transverse waves analogous to the S waves of seismic research. Sonar uses acoustic waves, which are analogous to the P waves of seismic research. All techniques use reflected waves, but radar and sonar rely on waves reflected back to the sending apparatus, whereas seismic research relies primarily on seismic waves transmitted to a distant station. Also, both sonar and radar rely primarily on artificially events or signals generated by the equipment, whereas seismic research relies mostly on natural events. However, seismic prospecting for oil and mineral deposits often does rely on signals returned to the sending apparatus, and on artificial events (usually small explosions on or just under the surface of the Earth.) Seismic prospecting is simply sonar for shallow Earth layers. - source
Do earthquakes help produce oil?
I happened upon an interesting post the other day entitled "The End of Fossil Fuels," written by Thomas J. Brown in 1998. It seems that Mr. Brown was ahead of the curve in catching on to the 'fossil fuel' myth, because, as it turns out, the title of his article refers not to the purported end of the oil era, but rather to his "attempt to describe the inadequacy of the term 'fossil fuel' and to prevent its further usage in the English language through education in the mysteries of the hydrocarbon structures in the earth."
Oil - tectonic correlation?
the graphic [above] -- a composite map of Indonesia. What can be seen quite clearly in [the] graphic is that oil and gas fields, as well as oil and gas seeps, follow a well defined arc that is also, strangely enough, marked by persistent earthquake and volcanic activity.
Being the naturally curious sort of guy that I am, and being also a native Californian, I thought it might be interesting to see if this same correlation holds true on my own home turf, so I did a little searching on the Internet and came up with two maps of the state of California -- one depicting the state's oil and gas fields and seeps, and the other depicting the location of the notorious San Andreas Fault. And - lo and behold - it turns out that pretty much the entire length of the San Andreas Fault, site of countless earthquakes, is marked by oil and gas seeps. And along both sides of the fault lie enormous oil and gas fields.
Weird, isn't it? I mean, you wouldn't expect 'fossil fuel' deposits to have any correlation with tectonic plate activity, would you?
What are we to make of this? [below] You don't need an advanced degree in geology to draw the conclusion that earthquakes and volcanic activity both appear to be manifestations of the pressures created by the buildup of abiotic hydrocarbons generated in, and rising from, the earth's mantle. In other words, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are natural relief valves that operate when oil and gas seeps alone are not enough to ease the constantly building pressure. You could say, I suppose, that earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are just planet Earth's way of passing gas.
