New ZetaTalkEarth ChangesAnnouncementsSigns of the Times
Quake Patterns

The Earth is composed of land masses called plates. Most quakes occur along the borders of these plates, where the plates touch one another, or on internal fault lines within the plate. For instance, the New Madrid Fault line is internal to the N American Plate. The 14 plates of the world are as follows: The S American Plate, the Scotia Plate to the south, the Nazca Plate just to the west of Ecuador, the N American Plate, the Juan de Fuca Plate just to the west off the coast of Oregon, the Cocos Plate to the west of Mexico, the Caribbean Plate, the great Pacific Plate, the great Eurasian Plate, the Philippine Plate, the Indo-Australia Plate pushing under the Himalayas, the Arabian Plate, the African Plate, and the Antarctica Plate.

On November 23, 2008 quakes in the range of 5 - 7 magnitude occurred within or on fault lines touching 10 of the 14 earth plates, as shown on this IRIS map. Note that quakes highlighted in orange occurred on November 23, and quakes in red occurred on November 24, 2008.

This trend continues. What is remarkable about this new quake pattern is how all parts of the globe seem to be affected. An adjustment in one place almost immediately creates adjustments elsewhere, within the same day. The Zetas warned that the plates were getting slippery, with the rock fingers that normally create resistance along fault lines now worn off.

ZetaTalk Warning 7/19/2008: We have mentioned that the Earth plates have loosened up, so that they can slide against each other more readily and slide further than before since the rock fingers that caused the fault lines to cling to each other have been broken off. We have also mentioned that quakes have started to increase in magnitude and frequency almost exponentially.

Of note is that magma sloshing has been occurring. A major quake on November 24, 2008 in Kamchatka produced a false reading in Idaho. Not only are all Earth plates participating in an adjustment, but the magma underneath is also participating.

Idaho Quake - Now You See It, Now You Don't
November 24, 2008
The USGS first showed a magnitude 4.8 earthquake hit Idaho, then revised to 'no quake'. The real quake had a preliminary magnitude of 7.3 and struck the Sea of Okhotsk 195 miles west of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy, on the Kamchatka Peninsula, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. A distant earthquake that is both large and deep can sometimes confuse faraway seismic stations into thinking it's a local temblor.

As further evidence that the current spate of worldwide earthquakes is riding on sloshing magma are some of the live seismographs that appeared on November 27, 2008. Seismographs normally present a straight line except when a quake or the global shuddering that has accompanied quakes since 2003 appears. Then the signature spiking black lines appear. The wobbly signature below is showing sloshing magma. The wobble on November 27, 2008 primarily affects the Pacific, with Kiribati and the Solomon Islands just to the east of Australia on the Pacific plate, and the Philippines of course on the Philippine Plate to the north of Australia. Historically speaking, this part of the globe adjusts when the Indo-Australian Plate periodically and frequently plunges under the Himalayas. Panama lies on a nervous zone where four plates touch - the Cocos Plate, the Caribbean Plate, the Nazca Plate, and the S American Plate.

New Madrid Warnings

The New Madrid Fault line is a known hazard, as is the devastation that would result if the fault line adjusted with a major quake. So why is a warning coming out just now with specifics?

Government Warns of "Catastrophic" U.S. Quake
November 20, 2008
People in a vast seismic zone in the southern and midwestern United States would face catastrophic damage if a major earthquake struck there and should ensure that builders keep that risk in mind. FEMA predicted a large earthquake would cause "widespread and catastrophic physical damage" across Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee - home to some 44 million people. In Tennessee alone, it forecast hundreds of collapsed bridges, tens of thousands of severely damaged buildings and a half a million households without water. Transportation systems and hospitals would be wrecked, and police and fire departments impaired. The zone, named for the town of New Madrid in Missouri's southeast corner, is subject to frequent mild earthquakes.

Per the Zetas, nothing is new, but the government recognizes that the New Madrid region is showing signs of stress. FEMA does not want to be accused of failing to issue a warning.

ZetaTalk Warning 11/22/2008: Since the devastation that would occur during great quakes in the central US has long been known, it begs the question - why are they only now warning of this potential with more specifics on expected damages? The answer, of course, is that they realize it is right around the corner. Quake prediction is not an exact science, though several predictors are known. Restless pets and static on the radio are two such predictors. The New Madrid area has had more than this of late - booms in Texas and Missouri accompanying small quake bursts. At times the booms are accompanied by flashes of light, indicating methane gas has been released and exploded. By issuing the warning, FEMA hopes to at least put itself in a better light, able to say "we told you so".

Indeed, a recent minor earthquake in Arkansas was accompanied by a loud boom and flashes of light. Methane gas was released to explode.

Loud Booms in Fort Smith Area May be Due to Meteors
November 10, 2008
A loud boom sounding similar to an explosion rocked the quiet western Arkansas night. No police or fire responded to an accident scene though. So what did Northwest Arkansas and River Valley residents hear? Not only did hear the massive boom, one from Spiro and several from Beaver Lake reported seeing yellow and green flashes of light. Calls started pouring into the Fort Smith P.D. between 8:30 and 9 Sunday night. A spokesman for NASA says he's not aware of what it was but didn't disagree with the theory that a meteor might be to blame.
2.7 quake hits Magnet Cove
November 10, 2008
At 9 p.m. Basil Miller, associate professor of physics, heard a loud boom that came from nowhere. The earthquake that occurred that night was rated a 2.7 on the Richter scale. The closest fault line is the New Madrid fault line that runs through northeast Arkansas.
Earthquake Hits North Texas
October 31, 2008
Some residents in North Texas awoke to a spooky sound early Friday. Dallas radio station WBAP-AM reports that several residents near DFW International heard a loud boom just after midnight. The National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colorado indicates the noise was a result of an earthquake struck at 12:01am about 4 miles southwest of Irving. The earthquake registered a magnitude 3.0 on the Richter scale; an earlier earthquake registered 2.5 at about 11:26 pm Thursday.

Will government warnings ameliorate the devastation that will hit when the New Madrid hits? Hardly. Cities such as St. Louis and Memphis have buildings that have never been retrofitted for great quakes. The number of homeless will be staggering. Per the Zetas, bridges on the Mississippi River will go down, their foundations twisted this way and that. Relief efforts will be hampered. So why is FEMA warning that "Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee" could be devastated, joining the Zetas in this warning, but they are not advising what these citizens should do about this pending calamity?

ZetaTalk Warning 2/10/2006: The stress on the N American plate will resolve by ripping. Ripping the St. Lawrence Seaway open. Pulling the SE down into the crumbling Caribbean and into the widening Atlantic, as neither of these sinking fronts will be able to support the edge of the weighty N American plate. There is pressure along the West Coast, of course, and as the N American plate confronts the compressing Pacific, this will only result in the predictable volcanic increases and West Coast earthquakes. But the primary drama preceding the pole shift will be the ripping action that a plate unable to move must endure. The notable area of catastrophe during this is the eastern half of the continental US. From Houston to Chicago to New England, the diagonal pull will tear the underpinning of cities and create a catastrophe for the US that will make the New Orleans disaster appear trivial.

Survival Steps

Since government from federal to city level is doing little to help people prepare for the disaster, outside of suggesting a 3 day supply of food and water or some such similar plan, many people are not waiting to be directed but are making their own plans. The Zetas have advised that city people move to rural areas and learn how to garden and save seed. Keeping domestic animals such as a small flocks of chickens or a herd of goats is also advised. Living off the grid with a windmill or water mill is also advised. Contactees are given such advice, but even those who are not contactees or who have not encountered the ZetaTalk website often have a hunch that something is pending. The collective consciousness, via which shared information is telepathically communicated subconsciously, has a hand in this. Take for instance the spate of city dwellers deciding to go rural.

City Dwellers Learn Ropes Of Rural Life
November 17, 2008
Flooded country roads. Roving packs of dogs with no owners in sight. Overgrown weeds as far as the eye can see. Leaving Southern California for the sprawling Midwest plains had seemed a no-brainer for Dale and Marilyn Johnson, retired occupational therapists who moved to Fort Scott, Kan., last year to be closer to their daughter and five grandchildren. The 22-acre farm they now call home was a return of sorts for Dale Johnson, 68, who lived on a northern Wisconsin farm as a boy. But their dreams of an idyllic retirement surrounded by five dogs, two birds, one cat, four llamas, a goat and a donkey were quickly tempered by a glaringly obvious reality: The couple barely knew a lick about how to navigate rural life. An infusion of former city and suburban dwellers into rural communities convinced University of Missouri Extension agents that these newcomers needed some commonsense lessons on how to not just survive but also thrive off the beaten path. Those conversations led to the creation of Rural Living 101, a two-week crash course for ex-urbanites. The cost is $35.

Whether driven by the increasing lack of availability and high price of food or by some subconscious awareness that at some point in the future food distribution will not be occurring, especially for city dwellers, city gardens have become popular. Small garden plots on city lots have been a fad for some time, but rooftop hydroponics seems to be a new trend. This can take advantage of natural sunlight, avoiding one of the high costs of hydroponics - the lighting system. Hydroponics can be irrigated by a manual method - lifting pails of water above the flow lines periodically - to avoid the need for electricity altogether. As the Troubled Times nonprofit discovered, hydroponic nutrient solution can be obtained by draining water through earthworm compost beds, and of course human waste can be part of the compost pile.

Caltech Studying Keys To Urban Hydroponic Farming, Roof Farms
November 21, 2008
Terry Fujimoto sees the future of agriculture in the exposed roots of the leafy greens he and his students grow in thin streams of water at a campus greenhouse. The program run by the California State Polytechnic University agriculture professor is part of a growing effort to use hydroponics _ a method of cultivating plants in water instead of soil _ to bring farming into cities, where consumers are concentrated. Because hydroponic farming requires less water and less land than traditional field farming, Fujimoto and researchers-turned-growers in other U.S. cities see it as ideal to bring agriculture to apartment buildings, rooftops and vacant lots. Cornell agriculturist Philson Warner said his students harvest hundreds of heads of lettuce a week from an area smaller than five standard parking spaces by using a special nutrient-rich solution instead of water. The numbers have some researchers imagining a future when enough produce to feed entire cities is grown in multistory buildings sandwiched between office towers and other structures. Columbia University environmental health science professor Dickson Despommier, who champions the concept under the banner of his Vertical Farm Project, said he has been consulting with officials in China and the Middle East who are considering multistory indoor farms.

Survival shelters, where people can hunker down until earthquakes or dropping bombs subside, are also popular. Where the stated reason is fear of terrorism, these seem to be on the rise even though domestic terror attacks have not occurred since 9.11. Occasionally there is an honest admission that the approaching passage of Planet X, as outlined on the ZetaTalk website, is the real reason for seeking a quake-proof bunker.

Hard Times Have Some Flirting with Survivalism
October 22, 2008
Also reporting an uptick in business is Utah Shelter Systems, which makes underground dwellings designed for surviving the aftermath of a biological or nuclear attack. "I think the economy certainly is part of it," Sharon Packer, part owner of the Salt Lake City company, said of the surge in orders this year. "Anytime we become vulnerable, our risk of a terrorist attacks increases." She emphasizes that most people who purchase the shelters, which run between $40,000 and $50,000, are wealthy professionals interested in hedging their bets. "Every once in awhile I have people who are concerned about Planet X or little green men, but they are usually not our clients," she says.

Canada Fireballs

A dramatic fireball screamed across the skies of western Canada on November 22, 2008.

Witnesses: Large Meteor Streaks Across Canada Sky
November 22, 2008
University of Calgary planetary scientist Alan Hildebrand called it one of the largest meteors visible in the country in the last decade.
Meteor Lights Sask. Sky
November 22, 2008
It was visible from Edmonton, east from Lloydminister and into Saskatchewan, and as far south as the Regina area.

This was followed days later by another fireball crossing the British Columbian skies.

New Second Possible Meteor Streaks Across B.C. Sky
November 26, 2008
Scientists said the object could have been a falling satellite, but because it was reported across such a wide geographic range, from Victoria to Prince George, it was likely a meteor. The sighting comes just days after extremely bright meteor streaked across the Alberta and Saskatchewan sky, sparking a meteorite hunt and a $10,000 cash reward.

Per the Zetas, this is only the start!

ZetaTalk Comment 11/22/2008: This is just the start. In 2003 and 2004, when Planet X had zoomed close to the Sun and then put on the brakes, the tail of Planet X wafted far and wide and there were many such fireballs being reported in the news. This seemed to slack off only because the tail coalesced again around Planet X, which acts like a giant magnet for the charged dust cloud which is the main component of its tail. The tail at present is hosing directly out from the magnetic N Pole of Planet X, and as this points more directly at the Earth, such debris will increasingly drop through the atmosphere of Earth. This is one sign that the days when the severe lean to the left and 3 days of darkness are not far in the future.
