Earth's magnetic field may be headed for a cataclysm says latest French study

Earth's Magnetic Field

We've reported on Earth's magnetic field before, including studies claiming that the planet's poles may reverse at any time and studies saying that Earth is probably not headed for a polar reversal at all. At the heart of these studies is the undeniable, millennia-old weakening trend in the planet's magnetic field, which, depending on your point of view, is either a temporary phenomenon that will eventually reverse itself (as it has in the past), or the harbinger of a cataclysmic breakdown of the Earth's entire magnetic shield and a subsequent flip of the magnetic poles.

The most recent study from the EDIFICE project, a geophysical research initiative based in France, claims we're headed for a cataclysm. According to Dr. Nicolas Thouveny, one of the principal investigators for EDIFICE: "The geomagnetic field has been decaying for the last 3,000 years. If it continues to fall down at this rate, in less than one millennium we will be in a critical (period)."

Largest fracking induced earthquake in Lancashire, UK, comes just days after suspension lifted

Fracking lancashire earthquake

The exact location of the tremors, according to the British Geological Survey.
A tremor measuring 1.5 magnitude has forced Cuadrilla to halt fracking at the Lancashire site.

The British Geological Survey (BGS) recorded a series of tremors this morning at the controversial fracking site at Preston New Road, Little Plumpton.

Nine tremors were detected at the site within 90 minutes this morning, with the latest tremor measuring a magnitude of 1.5 - three times the legal limit.

According to the BGS database, the 1.5 magnitude tremor is the largest detected at the site since monitoring began. It has been claimed the tremor was felt in the Blackpool area.

The nine tremors recorded today are also the most recorded at the site in a single day.

Comment: The citizens of Lancashire voted against fracking but the vote was overturned by local and national government powers. It remains to be seen what calamity needs to occur before people make a stand or forces the establishment to halt the process.

Laura Knight-Jadczyk and Pierre Lescaudron editors at SOTT Media and authors of "Earth Changes and the Human Cosmic Connection: The Secret History of the World" with ADAPT 2030 (David DuByne) compare what they see in the news as distraction for increasing food prices and societal changes as our Earth shifts to a cooler climate as the Eddy Grand Solar Minimum intensifies, a 400-year cycle in our Sun which will affect crop production, the economy and everyone on our planet. This is a timeline for what you can expect from now to 2030 as the frequency from our Sun changes.

Topics from the Interview:
  • Energetic changes being felt across our planet and how this relates to a lower activity in the Sun
  • Electric Universe
  • Jet Stream meanderings
  • Gulf Stream slow-down
  • Hurricane intensity on century cycles
  • Earthquakes
  • Magnetic field changes on Earth as the Suns magnetic field changes
  • Volcanic eruptions
  • Meteor fireballs
  • Tornadoes
  • Deluges and Atmospheric Compression events
  • Sinkholes
  • Victor Clube and space debris intensifying

A 6.2 magnitude quake has hit the South Pacific French territory of New Caledonia
A strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.2 struck east of the Loyalty Islands near New Caledonia in the South Pacific on Friday, the US Geological Survey said.

The quake hit at a depth of 26km (16 miles) about 189km (117 miles) east-southeast of Tadine in the Loyalty Islands, the USGS said.

There were no immediate warnings from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre.

It follows a powerful 7.6 quake that hit near New Caledonia on Wednesday.

Powerful 7.6 magnitude earthquake strikes off New Caledonia in South Pacific - Magnitude 7.0 aftershock

New Caledonia earthquake evacuations: The country was hit by a 7.6 magnitude earthquake on Wednesday
Tsunami waves have been spotted after a powerful undersea earthquake in New Caledonia in the South Pacific.

Evacuations were ordered after hazardous waves up to three metres tall were expected to rise following the 7.6 magnitude quake on Wednesday.

People on the east coast have been told to retreat at least 300m from the shore and to get to ground at least 12m in altitude.

The quake struck about 104 miles east of Tadine at a shallow depth of six miles, according to the US Geological Survey.

"Tsunami waves reaching 1 to 3 metres above the tide level are possible along some coasts of New Caledonia and Vanuatu," the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said.

M4.5 earthquake and aftershock in B.C., Canada, "very likely" caused by fracking

The location of the Nov. 29, 2018 earthquake near Fort St. John, B.C.
An earthquake that struck northeastern B.C. on Thursday evening was "very likely" caused by fracking, a preliminary investigation has found.

Earthquakes Canada said the quake had a preliminary magnitude of 4.5, with the epicentre about 16 kilometres southwest of Fort St. John.

It hit around 5 p.m. PT, followed by another tremor of similar magnitude, classified as an aftershock, less than an hour later.

Comment: This quake is reported to have occurred around 5pm, and earlier in the day, at around 8am, Alaska was hit with a strong M7. And so, when we considering the evidence linking fracking induced earthquake activity, along with the 2000% increase in major earthquakes since the 1900s, the rise in sinkholes, landslides and so on, it's clear society is suicidal in its pursuit of profit.

Unstable planet: Is the giant 7.0 earthquake in Anchorage, Alaska a precursor to a devastating convulsion in the west coast?

Anchorage quake
We just got more evidence that our planet is becoming increasingly unstable. On Friday a magnitude 7.0 earthquake destroyed homes, ripped apart roads and destroyed infrastructure all throughout Anchorage, Alaska. According to the USGS, the earthquake hit at 8:29 AM and the epicenter was approximately 7 miles north of Anchorage. That quake was followed by a highly destructive magnitude 5.7 aftershock just a little while later. Alaska Governor Bill Walker has declared a state of emergency, and the entire region is in a state of chaos. Unfortunately, as global seismic activity continues to increase, more quakes like this are inevitable. Like Alaska, the entire west coast of the United States sits directly along the "Ring of Fire", and many have warned that "the Big One" is coming sooner rather than later.


Tonight, large numbers of Anchorage residents are suddenly homeless, and that includes Alaska's most famous politician...
Light fixtures fell, glass shattered, roadways and supermarket aisles were awash from food spilled from broken jars. Video images showed some roadways had collapsed. One man tweeted a photo of his toppled chimney and a local television station showed its studio filled with debris.

Former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin tweeted, saying her family is intact but her "house is not."

Seismic signals originating off the coast of the small French island of Mayott were detected at seismology station ranging from Chile to New Zealand.
Strange vibrations from the Earth registered around the planet for 20 minutes with cause still unknown. Now a 7.0+ quake over Alaska directly under an area disturbed in the Ionosphere. Our planet is now experiencing an uptick in electric earthquakes and extreme climate and seismic events as the next step down further into the Grand Solar Minimum. Global Electric Circuit.
