Two devastating earthquakes in the month of September 1999 again focused the world's attention on one of nature's most terrifying and destructive forces. Earthquakes in Turkey and Taiwan took the lives of thousands and left even more people homeless and in fear of returning to their devastated communities.
The death and devastation caused by major earthquakes around the world can only worsen in years to come, as growing urban development and unprecedented population growth compound the lethal effects of natural and, as some researchers claim, man-made seismic hazards. With the world's population estimated to pass the 6 billion mark this year, there are fewer unpopulated places for quakes to strike.
And with ever more people to accommodate, there is more multistoried construction in vulnerable fault zones. As a result, destructive earthquakes "are the wave of the future," seismic expert Kerry Sieh of the California Institute of Technology says. "There are 40 cities of a million or more people within 100 kilometres of a major plate boundary, and all those are good candidates for a large event."
What Are Earthquakes? Most people consider earthquakes to be natural in origin, but what if there was such a thing as man-made earthquakes?
Well, there are. There is the official version of what constitutes a man-made earthquake, and then there is a body of suppressed research pointing to a more insidious agenda.
Officially, there is such an area of research devoted to man-made earthquakes. Geologists and seismologists agree that humans can induce earthquakes in five major ways: fluid injection into the Earth, (fracking) fluid extraction from the Earth, mining or quarrying, nuclear testing and through the construction of dams and reservoirs.
In fact, there are officially recorded instances of earthquakes caused by human activity.
Geologists discovered that disposal of waste fluids by means of injecting them deep into the earth could trigger earthquakes after a series of earthquakes in the Denver area occurred from 1962-1965; the periods and amounts of injected waste coincided with the frequency and magnitude of earthquakes in the Denver area. The earthquakes were triggered because the liquid, which was injected under very high pressure, released stored strain energy in the rocks.
Man-made earthquakes may seem like something out of the X-Files, and it's probably only a matter of time before the idea is picked up by Hollywood. This year, best-selling thriller author Ken Follett released his latest book, Hammer of Eden, about a terrorist group threatening to level San Francisco with a man-made earthquake. When asked by Salon Magazine how real is the idea of a man-made earthquake, Follett replied that "Some of the seismologists told me, 'There's no way this could happen.' But others gave sad little shrugs and said, 'It's hard to say. Who knows? Maybe. It's within the realm of possibly.'"
Suppressed Research: Tesla Technologies
Born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, Nicola Tesla is one of this century's greatest scientists. A prodigious inventor of electronic devices and pioneer of free energy, Tesla never gained the recognition he deserved because his scientific breakthroughs were deemed to 'sensitive' by the ruling corporate and government powers of the day. Thus much of his research was suppressed and stolen.
In a book entitled Tesla - The Lost Inventions, a section is titled "Man-Made Earthquake". It discloses Tesla's fascination with the power of resonance and he experimented with it not only electrically but on the mechanical plane as well. In his Manhattan, USA lab, Tesla built mechanical vibrators and tested their powers. One experiment got out of hand.
Tesla attached a powerful little vibrator driven by compressed air to a steel pillar. Leaving it there, he went about his business. Meanwhile, down the street, a violent quaking built up, shaking down plaster, bursting plumbing, cracking windows, and breaking heavy machinery off its anchorages.
Tesla's vibrator had found the resonant frequency of a deep sandy layer of subsoil beneath his building, setting off a small earthquake. Soon Tesla's own building began to quake. It is reported that just as the police broke into his lab, Tesla was seen smashing the device with a sledge hammer, the only way he could promptly stop it.
In a similar experiment, on an evening walk through the city, Tesla attached a battery powered vibrator, described as being the size of an alarm clock, to the steel framework of a building under construction. He adjusted it to a suitable frequency and set the structure into resonant vibration.
The structure shook, and so did the earth under his feet. Tesla later boasted he could shake down the Empire State Building with such a device. (The Twin Towers?) If this claim was not extravagant enough, he went on to say a large-scale resonant vibration was capable of splitting the earth in half.
An article from the 11 July, 1935 issue of the New York American entitled 'Tesla's Controlled Earthquakes', stated Tesla's "experiments in transmitting mechanical vibrations through the earth - called by him 'the art of telegeodynamics' - were roughly described by the scientists as a sort of controlled earthquake."
The article quotes Tesla as stating:
"The rhythmical vibrations pass through the earth with almost no loss of energy. It becomes possible to convey mechanical effects to the greatest terrestrial distances and produce all kinds of unique effects. The invention could be used with destructive effect in war."
Several UFO researchers speculate many UFO sightings might actually be "earthquake lights" caused by 'piezoelectric' phenomena. Piezoelectricity is believed to be caused by crystals found in certain rocks giving off a flow of electricity when subjected to high pressure, as in an earthquake. Lights leaping away from mountain peaks have been seen and recorded since ancient times.
Reports coming out of Turkey during the recent 17th August earthquake mention mysterious lights over the west of the country. The following intriguing eyewitness report was forwarded to Mutual UFO Network Eastern USA from Turkey:
"They are incredibly clear, circular or triangular in shape, white, yellow, red and blue coloured, remain visible in the sky for 5 to 20 minutes, following a materialising-dematerialising pattern. The funny thing is it became a routine thing as they have been showing up two or three times a week. They became an inevitable component of the TV news and media.
Furthermore, just before the quake, the bottom of the sea in Izmit went red and the sea temperature went up to 40-45 degrees C. However, there are no underwater volcanoes in the Sea of Marmara! Starting two days before the quake, hundreds of fish, crabs and other sea life forms died and not naturally! Somehow, they were burned! The fish nets of the fishermen were burned and we have several rock and stone samples from the sea, which went black in colour. TUVPO (Turkish UFO and Paranormal Organisation) is cooperating with the Smithsonian Institute and a few universities in the US. We already sent them some rock and burned fishnet samples, upon their request. Folks at TUVPO will hopefully run a spectrum analysis on the video tapes. Some fishermen are also saying that they witnessed an explosion under the sea. Fireballs, strange lights, sightings never ended in Turkey.
Compare this information with what happened in the destructive 1977 earthquake that hit China. The 5th June, 1977 New York Times described the great earthquake which destroyed Tangshan, China on July 28, 1976, killing over 650,000 people:
Just before the first tremor at 3:42 am, the sky lit up like daylight. The multi-hued lights, mainly white and red, were seen up to 200 miles away. Leaves on many trees were burned to a crisp and growing vegetables were scorched on one side, as if by a fireball.
Some investigators believe these electrical effects were associated with electromagnetic plasma and ball lightning and the strange array of flashes that result from Tesla-style technology. Was this brilliant flash of coloured light what Tesla talked about in 1935 when he mentioned "all kinds of unique effects"? Was this earthquake an early test of the system, conducted on the unsuspecting people of China? It certainly does not appear it was a natural earthquake. Was the same technology tried out on Turkey?
The January 1978 edition of Specula magazine ran an article describing an incredibly profound phenomenon that could be produced within the Earth by what is called the 'Tesla Effect.' According to the article, electromagnetic signals of certain frequencies can be transmitted through the Earth to form standing waves in the Earth itself. In certain cases, coherence to this standing wave can be induced wherein a fraction of the vast, surging electromagnetic current of the Earth itself feeds into and augments the induced standing wave. In other words, "much more energy is now present in the standing wave than the ...amount being fed in from the Earth's surface." By interferometer techniques, giant standing waves can be combined to produce a focused beam of very great energy. This can then be used to produce earthquakes induced at distant aiming points.
Tesla expressed grave concerns about the effects of this technology because it is exactly the type of thing that could easily get out of control once it begins vibrating within the Earth - and it could actually cause the Earth to vibrate to pieces. Could the use of this technique have been responsible for the great earthquake in Tangshan, China in 1976?
Another leading Tesla researcher and nuclear engineer, Lt. Col. Thomas Bearden, lecturing at a Symposium of the US Psychotronics Association (USPA) in 1981 stated:
Tesla found that he could set up standing waves. in the earth or, just set it up through the rocks - the telluric activity in the rocks would furnish activity into these waves and one would get more potential energy in those waves than he put in. He called the concept the Tesla Magnifying Transmitter (TMT).
Bearden goes on to explain how TMTs worked:
They will go through anything. What you do is that you set up a standing wave through the earth and the molten core of the earth begins to feed that wave (we are talking Tesla now). When you have that standing wave, you have set up a triode.
What you've done is that the molten core of the earth is feeding the energy and it's like your signal - that you are putting in - is gating the grid of a triode. Then what you do is that you change the frequency. If you change the frequency one way (start to dephase it), you dump the energy up in the atmosphere beyond the point on the other side of the earth that you focused upon. You start ionising the air, you can change the weather flow patterns (jet streams etc) - you can change all that - if you dump it gradually, real gradually - you influence the heck out of the weather. It's a great weather machine. If you dump it sharply, you don't get little ionisation like that. You will get flashes and fireballs (plasma) that will come down on the surfaces of the earth. you can cause enormous weather changes over entire regions by playing that thing back and forth.
HAARP: The Pentagon's Ultimate Weapon
In an Arctic compound 450 kilometres east of Anchorage, Alaska, the Pentagon has erected a powerful transmitter designed to beam more than a gigawatt of energy into the upper reaches of the atmosphere. Known as Project HAARP (High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program), the $30 million experiment involves the world's largest "ionospheric heater," a prototype device designed to zap the skies hundreds of kilometres above the earth with high-frequency radio waves.
Why irradiate the charged particles of the ionosphere (which when energised by natural processes make up the lovely and famous phenomenon known as the Northern Lights)?
According to the US Navy and Air Force, co-sponsors of the project, "to observe the complex natural variations of Alaska's ionosphere." As well, admit the Pentagon, to develop new forms of communications and surveillance technologies to enable the military to send signals to nuclear submarines and to peer deep underground.
Jason Jeffrey (Extract from New Dawn No. 57, Nov-Dec.1999)
Since Kobe in Japan was struck in 1995 by a massive earthquake, there have been further devastating earthquakes from Pakistan to Peru. The Bam earthquake in Iran reduced it's ancient citadel to a heap of rubble on Boxing Day 2003 and exactly one year later, a mega-tsunami ripped across the Indian Ocean causing major loss of life and destruction. More recently, there were crippling earthquakes in Haiti and Chile.
Nations have also developed techniques to manipulate the weather. Weather modification can be divided into two main categories: suppression and intensification of weather patterns. In extreme cases, it might involve the creation of completely new weather patterns, attenuation or control of severe storms, or even alteration of the world's climate on a far-reaching and/or long-lasting scale. In the mildest and least controversial cases it may consist of inducing or suppressing precipitation, clouds, or fog for short times over a region.
The countries earmarked by Henry Kissinger for his “special treatment” are first destabilized by ‘natural disasters’ to weaken resistance before military intervention and occupation, but vast armies are no longer needed. Perfected weather control technology will enable an aggressor to withhold rain and create drought, induce forest fires, create floods or tsunami’s and hurricanes, withhold sunshine, damage food crops, and bring any country to its knees without firing a single shot. There is no such thing as 'Global Warming!'
