Rumblings from Mother Earth

telling us something

12 Feb 10 - (Excerpts) - As I predicted, news  from Haiti in the wake of the Jan 12 earthquake that leveled Port-au- Prince has become a trickle. A month later, on February 11, a 4.3 magnitude earthquake hit Chicago and there was barely any notice taken in the mainstream media.

As February began, The New York Times took notice that, “Hundreds of Quakes Are Rattling Yellowstone.”

To his credit, reporter Kirk Johnson put the Yellowstone activity in context, noting that the second-largest ever recorded swarm of quakes “is more a cause for curiosity than alarm.” In fact, another swarm of more than 1,000 quakes had struck the park just over a year ago with the largest recorded occurring in 1985; over a three month period, there were 3,000 earthquakes.

Yellowstone, however, is special because it is the largest volcanic caldera in the United States and, should it erupt, the destruction would be unimaginable. Like Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines, it could fill the atmosphere with so much material that it would likely alter the weather around the world for a while.

One, however, has to ask if there is a connection between Haiti, Chicago, and Yellowstone’s rumblings. Clearly there is movement of the Earth’s tectonic plates and it is occurring in our neighborhood.

We have been told for years that the San Andreas Fault is likely to deliver “a big one” again to San Francisco or Los Angeles, but it is the nature of people to push such things to the back of their minds and perhaps that is the best thing to do. No one can truly “prepare” for an earthquake.

There are, however, magnitudes of disaster. My friend, Robert W. Felix, author of books on the coming ice age and about magnetic reversals when the magnetic poles reverse—-your compass would point south instead of north—-says “I do know that smaller eruptions have occurred in sync with magnetic reversals and in sync with the beginning of previous ice ages.”

A magnetic reversal occurs when the protective magnetic field around the planet has a precipitous decline in field strength. “And since our magnetic field strength has declined by two-thirds during the past 2,000 years,” says Felix, “the rate of decline has been speeding up.” (Check out his website at www.iceagenow)

Despite the greatest hoax of the modern era, “global warming”, Earth has entered yet another cooling cycle that could last a decade or two, maybe longer. The planet is at the end of an interglacial period of 11,500 years and is due a new ice age. Maybe not tomorrow or next week, but the science says it is inevitable.

When you put together an increase in volcanic activity, a decline in the magnetic field strength of the planet, and the approach of a new ice age, it suggests that life as we know it on Earth is going to become a far bigger problem for all species.

All these rumblings are telling us something.
