Gas Fracking may have induced earthquake- Japan/Chikyu flashback

On a much larger scale, way larger!! Tsunami included.
I want to get back to a previous post

Chikyu-'Earth' in Japanese - Boring holes into the Earth's Mantle

If you read through that post, I ended with these questions/thoughts

I don't know if this is related to the massive earthquake and tsunami in Japan, that brought the disaster that is Fukushima on.
It does however sound extremely destabilizing, in my opinion.
Perhaps earthquake inducing. I saw mention of tectonic plates in a number of articles.
The whole thing just makes me go. Hm!??

I won't rehash the entire post, I only encourage its reading. Take a look at the pictures included.

Chikyu is boring enormous holes into Earth's Mantle. Very near or on fault lines and tectonic plates. Is sounds as destabilizing and earthquake inducing, to me now, as it did when I originally put that post up.

You may wonder, why I am rehashing this? Glad your thinking that. Because an interesting and possibly related news story caught my eye today.

A mining company has halted drilling for shale gas in England after scientists said two small earthquakes might be linked to the controversial process, known as hydraulic fracturing.

The British Geological Survey recorded a 1.5 magnitude quake Friday near Blackpool in northwest England, within 1.2 miles of the gas exploration site. A 2.3 magnitude quake was recorded last month.

Cuadrilla Resources said it had stopped hydraulic fracturing, or fracking — the process of extracting gas by pummeling rocks deep underground with high-pressure water, sand and chemicals — while it studied data from the quakes and consulted with experts

.Blackpool earthquake tremors may have been caused by gas drilling

Environment group calls for fracking procedure to be banned after safety concerns over minor earthquakes in Lancashire.

A company using "fracking" to drill for gas in Lancashire has had to suspend operations following a 1.5 magnitude earthquake near Blackpool on Friday.

It is the second earthquake to strike Lancashire since April, and experts say it may be a result of the controversial practice, a process of drilling for natural shale gas which involves injecting water and rock-dissolving fluids underground at extremely high pressure to break apart hard shale rocks and release gas.


If fracking can cause earthquakes, what the hell can drilling on the level, or should I say at the depths, of Chikyu do? Into the earths mantle and tectonic plates? Fracking doesn't even touch these depths or areas?

  1. Hmm, that reminds me of this:

  2. thanks freethinker!
    Isn't that mucho interesting

    "drill down, shoot cold water into the shaft and bring it up again. The superheated water would be capable of generating enough power through a steam turbine to meet the electricity needs of 10,000 households and heat 2,700 homes.

    But located on top of a fault line and in the middle of a city, it proved too dangerous to continue,"

    If you went back to my old post, there is a diagram with a number of drilling sites all along the coast of Japan.

    The first time I read about Chikyu, it almost screamed what the hell is this, to me.

    Which was why I put the post up that I did.

    So drilling on fault lines can bring on earthqakes, so what about massive drilling?

  3. They use much more than water Penny. I have even heard mercury at times.

    "Hydraulic Fracturing Chemicals - Coalbed fracture treatments use anywhere from 50,000 to 350,000 gallons of various stimulation and fracturing fluids, and from 75,000 to 320,000 pounds of proppant during the hydraulic fracturing of a single well.[6] Many fracturing fluids contain chemicals that can be toxic to humans and wildlife, and chemicals that are known to cause cancer. These include potentially toxic substances such as diesel fuel, which contains benzene, ethylbenzene, toluene, xylene, naphthalene and other chemicals; polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons; methanol; formaldehyde; ethylene glycol; glycol ethers; hydrochloric acid; and sodium hydroxide.[7] Very small quantities of chemicals such as benzene, which causes cancer, are capable of contaminating millions of gallons of water."

    They not only get the gas but go Georgia guideline.

  4. Did you see this new video of Gasland director admitting he didn't show the full story - http://youtu.be/e9CfUm0QeOk

  5. Hey DM!

    the drilling and cold water reference was to the geologist in switzerland story.

    That was geo-thermal drilling.
    Chikyu is insane depths drilling.

    I read about the chemical useage with fracking.

    What I am on about is the fact that in the process of drilling for both fracking and geothermal, an earthquake manifested.

    The geothermal drilling was done on a fault line.

    What does this say about the potential for the drilling by the Chikyu?

    btw:
    reading a book on haarp at this time,

  6. True cost:

    I have to ask you are you from a PR firm or involved somehow with profiteering from this process.

    Regardless of the spin in that piece, Fracking, has a whole host of problems, not withstanding the release of gases into groundwater, the host of pollutants used to "frack" and the earthquake potential!

  7. Many modern mining and natural resource extraction techniques are having devastating effects on our environment, including inducing earthquakes. I read a story about how a military base basically dumped a bunch of toxic water that they needed to get rid of in an old earthquake fault line, which resulted in numerous violent earthquakes. It's absurd what we're doing to our environment on so many levels, yet the brain dead shills in the mainstream continue to harp on "global warming" and "climate change," as if radiation spewing into the atmosphere is not a big deal.

  8. And it could be the result of the Pentagon's HAARP toy:

    Here's the latest HAARP reading and it's very active, which should be of some concern, since lately, the Empire's 'Ministry of Truth' outlets, like CNN and FUX have been running way too many stories about nonsensical BS, like that Casey Anthony trial and BS about Hollywood bimbos....I'm not trying to downplay tragedies about someone getting killed, but that's something for the local news, not national.

    In the past, putting that mind slop into our heads usually was a prelude to something BIG coming down the pike.

    First, they put us into a trance with worthless shit they call 'news,' then the SHTF somewhere.

    Paranoia?

    If you take into consideration all the wars, murders, 'humanitarian' interventions and the rest since the FALSE FLAG/INSIDE JOB 0f 9/11 and aren't a bit paranoid, then your brain has probably shut down.

    "It isn't just conspiracy theorists who are concerned about HAARP. The European Union called the project a global concern and passed a resolution calling for more information on its health and environmental risks. Despite those concerns, officials at HAARP insist the project is nothing more sinister than a radio science research facility."

    Quote from a documentary on HAARP by Canada's public broadcasting network CBC.

  9. Greg: I am not up to speed enough on HAARP. I have just started a book on the subject, yesterday.


    Went to look at that, but, not sure what I am looking at?

  10. These idiot are nuts, simple as that. Undermining the very ground beneath us, with no idea what the deeper processes and damage may be.

    Utter insanity.

  11. Hey John Friend, sorry I missed you yesterday, just on of those days.


    Greg: second reply, I am still reading on HAARP at this time, and while I won't discount it.

    Right now I am looking at that behomoth Chikyu, the insanity of that level of drilling and thinking it quite possibly played a role in the earthquake and tsunami that brought us the radiation disaster we are all globally suffering under as our media stays silent!

    anonymous, that is worth repeating!
