There were four people that were slightly injured when a 4.9 magnitude earthquake jolted a border area near Southwest China’s Sichuan and Yunan Provinces at 10:46 am Tuesday, local authorities mentioned. The quake has toppled 56 houses and damaged 815 others in Yunnan’s Qiaojia county, according to the county government statement.
“Many people ran out of buildings when the quake came, but there was no falling debris. The shopping mall resumed business shortly afterwards,” a mall shopper said.
A moderate but strong 5.8 earthquake hit Tokyo today, with the tremors epicenter was 32 miles east of Ohara, Japan, and 77 miles east-southest of Tokyo. It originated
21.7 miles deep and struck at 9:27 p.m. There were no immediate reports of damages to report from this earthquake. Earthquakes of this size may cause minor to moderate damage, however, damage from any earthquake depends on it’s depth, in relation to populated areas nearby.
Here is a list of magnitude 5.0 or greater earthquakes according to the U.S Geological survey:
|5.7||148km NNE of Neiafu, Tonga||17.416°S||173.424°W||34.6|
|5.0||28km S of Lata, Solomon Islands||10.971°S||165.851°E||36.7|
|5.6||52km E of Ohara, Japan||35.246°N||140.957°E||35.0|
Is Extreme Weather The New Normal? Scientists Think So
At the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Boston, scientists are warning that extreme weather events such as Hurricane Sandy, and the Texas drought are here to stay for the long haul.
Researchers served notice that episodes of extreme weather and drought in Texas are the new normal as supposedly “human-driven climate change” makes these events more intense and more often.
Whenever you mention man made “global warming” or “climate change” as the global warming label has been changed to “climate change”, you will
usually have a debate come up on whether man is causing weather extremes.
From our perspective, it is silly to believe that man made CO2 is causing the earth changes that we see today.
Along with extreme weather we are currently having more volcanic, and earthquake activity so CO2 has to play a role in these events as well. What most people do not understand is that other planets are warming up as we speak.
Here is an article from scienceagogo.com that gives proof that Triton is experiencing global warming:
“There may not be much industrial pollution on Neptune’s largest moon, but things are hotting up nonetheless…
The Earth is not alone in suffering global warming. According to observations made by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and several ground-based instruments, temperatures on Neptune’s largest moon have increased dramatically since the Voyager space probe swung by in 1989. So much so, in fact, that Triton’s surface of frozen nitrogen is turning into gas, making its thin atmosphere denser by the day.
“At least since 1989, Triton has been undergoing a period of global warming,” confirms astronomer James Elliot, professor of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “Percentage-wise, it’s a very large increase.”

So if other planets are warming up, that are not inhabited by humans, how can man made global warming cause all of the extreme weather, sinkholes, volcanic ash plumes, meteors, mass animal deaths, blood red rivers, the sun rising two days early in greenland, compass disruption, and many other events that have taken place lately?
Of course the debate will rage on, but for us the there is no debate on this particular issue, something else is causing these dramatic earth changes.
Giant Sinkhole Swallows A Building
In other sinkhole news, residents are seeking buyouts for as frustrated Assumption Parish residents have been displaced by a massive sinkhole in the assumption Parish area. So far, the sinkhole has swallowed 9 acres of land near their homes, and residents are asking for buyouts of their property.
Here is an update on the giant salt dome that is below the sinkhole:
Volcano Explodes In Japan
The volcano in Sakurajima Japan has showed frequent strong explosions, there are explosions at a rate of 1-3 per day. The video below shows the spectacular explosion in Japan:
Mount Etna in Italy has experienced a volcanic eruption on February the 19th, one of the first big eruptions for the volcano in 2013.
The dramatic scene was captured on video by Klaus Dorshfeldt, a videographer and webmaster at Italy’s National Institute Of Geophysics and volcanology. Here is the video of the eruption:
