4,300 Undersea Earthquakes
Not by Fire but by Ice
THE NEXT ICE AGE - NOW!

More than 4,300 undersea earthquakes in five days
March 7, 2005 – "It might be a volcanic eruption or a magma event on the ridge," said Garry Rogers, a seismologist with the Geological Survey of Canada in
Vancouver, B.C. "These earthquake swarms are associated with sea floor spreading [underwater volcanic activity]," said Robert P. Dziak, an oceanographer at the Hatfield Marine ScienceCenter in Newport, Oregon.
The undersea quakes, about a mile-and-a-half below the ocean surface, weren’t large enough to trigger a tsunami, so the experts advise us not to worry.
I hope they’re correct, but if there’s a tremendous amount of magma pouring into the ocean I think we have a problem. The magma could be as much as 2,150 degrees Fahrenheit - 10 times the boiling point – which could lead to much warmer seas and thence to an ice age.
