Apparently, Arkansas has also been experiencing earthquake swarms.

The link hasn't been proven but why risk it?
That was my entire point....why risk it... a billion watts of energy into the ionosphere
how much is that...like several days out put from one generation power station concentrated
into a beam.  Could there be an equal and opposite reaction?

A watt is a unit of power, not energy, so it isn't several days' output from anything. But yes, a billion watts (one gigawatt) is roughly the power output of a modern generating station.

Setting aside the fact that none of these people have any scientific acumen whatsoever, you know how I know this is BS? If there was a shadowy conspiracy willing to kill thousands of people in order to do whatever it is they're doing, why wouldn't they bump off this handful of people on the internet?

There is a LOT of money getting poured into this
antenna array and the power required to fire it up...just sayin....and then I gotta ask WHY?


Submarine and subterranean ULF communications.

Having said that there are 2 places where I think people are causing earthquakes.  In Switzerland and northern California a method to produce geothermal energy has been tried but recently shut down because of earthquake swarms.  2 wells are drilled and the rocks between them are fractured to let the water flow through.  Water is injected in one well and comes back up the other well in the form of steam.  I haven't read any explanation of why it's happening but both areas began to have earthquakes, in Switzerland there were some fairly strong ones in an area that had really not had earthquakes before so the government shut the plant down and as far as I know the earthquake activity subsided.  The link hasn't been proven but why risk it?


Interesting...I can't wait for May 21st to roll around now. :D

Before this, there was an antenna array in the UP of MI that was called ELF.  That was an acronym for something like Extra Low Frewquency.  Not as low of a frequency and not as much power as HAARP, so it had limitations in communications with subs.

On Bootsy Collins' Facebook page he recently mentioned recording with Sly Stone soon.  Maybe the cause is the Space Bass is getting tuned up?

It's arrogant of humans to think they have the ability to control the natural world.  We're still struggling even after thousands of years to consistently make the best beer possible.

Oh, and for all those conspiracy theorists:  Hindsight is 20/20.  Tell us exactly when it's going to happen BEFORE it happens.

Arrogant, yes, but not out of the question.  Humans have come up with some pretty powerful and life threatening technology.  Humans can and do affect the natural world.  Remember that scene in second Matrix movie where Agent Smith is talking to Morpheus about humans and likening humans to a virus?  They spread to an area, use up all the available resources, them spread to another area or get the resources from another area and use up those resources.  Not unlike a virus, huh?

Hindsight is looking at historic events.  Being able to tell about an event BEFORE it happens is FOREsight.  (grammar police at your service).

The Matrix films are science fiction. 
But, that's what we're discussing here, right?
