The Earth’s Crust Will Be Shaken By More Than 100,000 Earthquakes That Humans Can Feel In 2016

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Did you know that our planet will be hit by more than 100,000 earthquakes of magnitude 3.0 or greater this year alone? Earlier today, I came across a report that contained this amazing fact, but it was so incredible that I felt that I had to go and verify it myself. So I went to the official USGS website, and I found out that this is actually true. Overall, there are about half a million earthquakes around the globe each year, but it is only when a quake is of about magnitude 3.0 or greater that humans actually feel them. As the very large earthquakes in Italy and Myanmar within the last 24 hours have demonstrated, the shaking of our planet is getting worse, and this is something that I have written about over and over again. So why is this happening? Why does the crust of our planet seemingly become more and more unstable with each passing year?

We need to start addressing those questions, because there aren’t too many things that can do more damage to a community than a major earthquake. Very early Wednesday morning, a magnitude 6.2 earthquake struck central Italy. It is being reported that it sounded “like a bomb” went off, and it looks like this is going to end up being the worst natural disaster to hit Italy in many years.

This earthquake rattled buildings in Rome, it could be felt in Naples to the south, and it is even being claimed that it could be felt all the way up in Bologna in the north.

The epicenter of the quake was a charming little Italian town known as Amatrice. According to Mayor Sergio Pirozzi, “the town is no more” at this point. You can see some amazing photographs of the destruction for yourself right here. Homes, churches and businesses collapsed in heaps of rubble, and at this moment rescuers are engaged in a frantic race against time to pull survivors from the wreckage…

Rescue teams using bulldozers, and aided by townspeople with their bare hands, were still poring through the piles of rock, metal and wood late Wednesday looking for possible survivors. Police near the town of Ascoli said they could hear cries for help from under the rubble but lacked the heavy equipment to move the rocks, according the RAI radio.

“We need chain saws, shears to cut iron bars, and jacks to remove beams: everything, we need everything,” civil protection worker Andrea Gentili told the Associated Press.

So far, the death toll stands at 159 people, but that number is going to go way up as more bodies are discovered. The following was reported by Reuters…

One hotel that collapsed in the small town of Amatrice probably had about 70 guests, and only seven bodies had so far been recovered, said the mayor of the town that was one of the worst hit by the quake.

But as destructive as the Italian quake was, it wasn’t even the largest earthquake on the globe on Wednesday. A huge magnitude 6.8 earthquake struck Myanmar, but because that earthquake was much deeper it didn’t do the same level of damage as the quake in Italy did…

A powerful earthquake shook Myanmar on Wednesday, killing at least three people and damaging nearly a hundred ancient Buddhist pagodas in the former capital of Bagan, a major tourist site, officials said.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the magnitude 6.8 quake was centered about 25 kilometers (15 miles) west of Chauk, a town south of Bagan. It was located fairly far below the Earth’s surface at a depth of about 84 kilometers (52 miles), it said.

Sadly, most Americans couldn’t care less about what goes on in places like Italy or Myanmar. I know that may sound terrible, but it is true.

However, Americans should care, because this global rise in earthquake activity is affecting us as well. In fact, the USGS now says that human activity may at least be partially to blame for the “dramatic increase in seismicity” that we have been witnessing in the United States in recent years…

On Monday, for the first time, the U.S. Geological Survey has released an analysis of the magnitude of “human-induced” earthquakes. That such a thing as human-induced earthquakes can exist is scary enough, but the “dramatic increase in seismicity” in places such as Oklahoma has forced the USGS to consider the threat more broadly.

“By including human-induced events, our assessment of earthquake hazards has significantly increased in parts of the U.S.,” said Mark Petersen, chief of the USGS National Seismic Hazard Mapping Project, in a statement. “This research also shows that much more of the nation faces a significant chance of having damaging earthquakes over the next year, whether natural or human-induced.”

    The earth, as long as it has been so near to the sun that it has plenty of warmth (as well as cooling on the dark side), and because we have a large MOON that goes around the earth (with all those “tidal forces”) creates thousands of earthquakes Y day.

    (most are too small to be felt, but they can still be “measured” by sensitive equipment)

    So the bible was really deceiving when it said “in the end times, there would be a lot of earthquakes in “diverse places”. DUH!!! It pretty hard to get THAT one wrong because there are thousands of earthquakes for BILLIONS of years, EVERY DAMN day, all around the globe.

    That particular bible “prophecy” is about as scary or miraculous as saying: “in the last days, there will be oxygen & nitrogen in the atmosphere, there will be sunny areas and cloudy areas in diverse places.” Even though this is a 100% accurate statement, there is NOTHING ABNORMAL about oxygen & nitrogen in the atmosphere, and there are always places that are sunny or cloudy.

    Now if the bible were to declare that suddenly the MOON would begin to ROTATE and show us the “hidden” side? Yeah, THAT would be worthy of taking note.

    Or if the bible were to declare that our MOON would split into 2 moons, or we’d capture another moon, or if our moon would escape earth’s gravitation, THAT would be a TRUE prophecy worthy of being called a prophecy (but if it never happens, then it’s just another “wait for another million years and you’ll see I’m right.)

    I have a bad habit & strong tendency to ignore statements made and books created by SHEEP & Goat herders before electricity, gravity and oxygen was discovered, studied or explained.

    Perhaps when some TALKING SNAKE or TALKING DONKEY comes up to me and explains it,.. THEN I’ll believe in some of that wild stuff.

    If talking snakes were so simple, and having a conversation with one is SO casual and NOT shocking (as in the garden of eden), then WHY don’t I ever see any of them FOR SALE in all the SNAKE Departments of any pet shop I’ve ever been at?

    On the other hand, if it’s SO rare, then WHY didn’t EVE scream her head off and go RUNNING away,…OR… run to tell ADAM to come and see the UNUSUAL talking snake? Nope, she handled it as it talking animals was an every day item.

    We consider it very unusual when we can train a couple species of birds to say a few words.
    When some kind of monkey can be trained to properly use a hundred words of SIGN language, it makes WORLD NEWS.

    So where is my TRUE BIBLE TALKING SNAKE? Where can I buy a TRUE BIBLE talking DONKEY?

    It would be nice to believe in nonsense (like how I’m gonna hit the big LOTTERY any day now because a talking MOUSE told me I was going to win.).

    But the only place I can regularly see TALKING animals is the cartoons on TV.

    Jesus walked on water? Why? Was the “water taxi” prices too high? Jesus didn’t have the money to pay the ferry boat fee so he walked?

      Seems like this really hit a nerve and you’re trying awfully hard to convince yourself that you’re right.

      • Argento

        I agree, that was a bizarre rant out of nowhere.

        No mention of God or the Bible anywhere in the article. It was about the DRAMATIC INCREASE (to mimic Craig’s habit of over-use of capitalization for effect) in seismic activity all over the globe.

        Someone needs to settle down and keep their pants on.

      • Craig Escaped Detroit

        You guys are right, I did over do some of my ranting (and the “all caps” too).

        What “triggered” me, was that there are a lot of people out there who are ignorant of some common scientific information about the frequency and regularity of earthquakes, but those same science-ignorant folks, get all excited on their own rants about the bible-prophecies announcing the earthquakes,etc. (religious “doom porn”).

        Michael Snyder sometimes fits in that category of doom porn & religious doom porn too.

        He sometimes puts out some VERY good pieces that stays with all the facts and does not always go into doom porn mode.

        I do appreciate his work, when his articles don’t try to be overly sensational.

        I’m disappointed in how many of my fellow human beings, are often so uninformed about the world we live in. There are actually people out there who believe the world is flat, ignoring all the evidence to the contrary. They do have some clever “excuses” of their own, but they discount the solid evidence of the earth’s spherical shape, movements, etc.

        People who have such strong faith without scientific foundations for that faith, are what can set me off too. I don’t know everything there is to know, but I’m always willing to learn, and in fact, the more I learn, it continues to teach me how little I actually know.

        Unlike others who think they know so many things with absolute certainty, but yet they are often just brainwashed and closed minded. I like to ask the kind of questions that people don’t always think to ask about.

        Even in this “forum”, I often just watch and learn from what others are saying, and I see that so many commentators here, are VERY well informed about the topics that they appreciate.
        I don’t have to always agree with their viewpoints, but I respect how deeply they have studied their particular topics and I (often) keep my mouth shut and silently observe.

        I actually have read the bible, from cover to cover, and some sections of it many times (as well as having read the koran from cover to cover, and read some portions of the Nag Hammadi, the Egyptian Book of the Dead, the Tibetan Book of the Dead, The Gnostic Gospels, The Septuagint, The Gospel of Peter, The Lost Books of the Bible, Forgotten Books of Eden, and quite a few other religious type of texts. There is a lot of interesting stuff (and commentaries about them.) The books based upon the Edgar Cayce readings are very interesting, but some of them shed a lot of light on ways to understand deeper things about the bible, our world, our universe, and many topics (such as part of the history of the legendary Atlantis, Lemuria, reincarnation, etc)

        And yet, there are some commentators here, who go WAY over my head on some of these things. I’m often humbled (in a GOOD way).

        We’ve got people here, who are engineers, nuclear facility employees, people who’ve had their pilot’s license, etc. And THAT’s why I enjoy this place, (as well as ZH), because of the high caliber of the web site, and the high caliber of most of the people who post comments here.

        The sense of humor (by many posters) is wonderful TOO.

        • Millicent

          You have been listening to Eric & Krell too much…
          You need to step back and take a breather.

          • Eric

            Listen to all. Follow none.

          • Craig Escaped Detroit

            @Milli,
            I welcome & enjoy your ‘input’ here, because your constant negativity and derogatory comments helps to keep me better focused on more positive things, and helps me to better appreciate the higher levels of intellect of Eric, Krell, Glitter, Moishe, Sean and so many others that you think are beneath your understanding.

            Without the night, we could not appreciate the daylight.

            Millicent, you are the skunk in the road that helps me to appreciate how to roll up my windows and all the miles of clean air in between the few dead skunks.

            Milli, you are the comic-relief that we sometimes need to break up the day. You are the “Three Stooges commercial” to break up the monotony of a Federal Reserve Speech.

            I’ve always tried to give you respect and patience for your posts, hoping that you would learn how to bring some helpful, useful and uplifting bits of wisdom to the feast, but you always choose to be the Turd-in-the-punchbowl.

            But hey, don’t go away from here. We always need something to distract us for a minute. I know we can rely on you to make yourself a target of our laughter. Just like a “gassy parishioner” sitting on a wooden church pew, making loud “butt noises” on the wooden seat, it helps to break up a boring sermon.

            Your opinions are the stinky gas that we all have to “endure” until it dissipates and the fresh air comes back again.

    Quite an entertaining old movie with a young, very sexy Barbara Eden (before she starred in “I Dream of Jeannie”.)
