Landholders warned to keep longer watch on hazard of earthquakes

(NaturalNews) When the US Geological Survey recently discovered that earthquakes are occurring more frequently and poten제천출장마사지tially stronger in the Pacific, a huge number of people (including many of the world’s biggest mining corporations) were understandably shocked, not only to learn this news, but to realize that they have failed to prepare for a “disaster,” one where millions die in an earthquake-driven tsunami and where huge amounts of oil are spilled from oil and gas wells.This has been all too familiar to those of us living in the American West, where the oil industry has been exploiting our fragile aquifers, contaminating rivers and draining our watersheds for decades. In the past, there have been countless warning signs about the imminent threat of earthquakes. In fact, over 20 different earthquakes were recorded between 1995 and 2009, and each of those earthquakes resulted in catastrophic environmental disasters, like:포커* A magnitude 7.7 magnitude earthquake in 2007 in central North Dakota (which also happened to be the year of the worst oil spill in US history* A 5.8 magnitude earthquake in Oklahoma in August, 2007* A 7.6 magnitude quake in California in January, 2010* A 5.0 magnitude earthquake in Louisiana in March, 2010. The state of Louisiana saw massive amounts of oil being transported from across the US, from both refineries and from fracking facilities. And yet, the American people didn’t do anything about the natural disasters that were occurring in their backyard; these disasters continued unabated, as does the US government’s ongoing policy of building roads, power plants, and schools throughout their state.This has been going on for a long time, with the very first real earthquake since the Big Freeze of 1854, just two decades ago. And when you take a look at how closely the US has been following the lessons of earthquakes and geophysics over the past couple of decades, it’s clear that this massive failure to prepare for, or indeed even to know what are earthquakes means that massive damage may yet be done.To put this in perspective, the last earthquake that shook the world was one that caused over 300 million tons of oil to spill.The recent earthquake in California is not the first earthquake that shook the country this week – in March, 2012, an extremely powerful tremor (called a magnitude 7.5) triggered devastating tsunami that killed almost 500 people in Indonesia and left more than half a million p건마eople homeless. A month later, an earthquake of magnitude 7.8 in Mexico killed 1,000 people along with the nearby communities o
