That's according to a Chinese environmental activist. He says that water pollution from these mines also threatens some of China's largest cities on the Chengdu plain. A looming disaster after a disaster—near the epicenter of the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, mining and factory waste is destabilizing the Longmen Shan region, according to a Chinese environmental activist. Geology expert Yang Yong spent two weeks carrying out a survey of the region in August. [Yang Yong, Environmental Activist]: "Longmen Shan was the principle disaster area of the Wenchuan earthquake, the mountain tends to be very steep. After the earthquake, the geological environment became very bad. For the past few years, there have been mudslides happening over large areas. Many parts of the mountain have collapsed, slid off. On top of that, every rainy season this place is at the center of torrential rainstorms. Mining on a large scale here will have an influence on the environment." Yang says raw minerals and ores for factories near Deyang City and Mianyang Prefecture are all coming from open mines in the Longmen Shan region. Longmen Shan serves as a water source for the Chengdu plain and that water is getting more polluted due to mining in the region. [Yang Yong, Environmental Activist]: "The mining excavations and extraction of ore have gotten bigger since the disaster. This is like adding another disaster on top of one that already exists. At the same time the water sources are getting heavily polluted. A geological disaster continues to threaten the Chengdu plain. The future of the environment there is getting more worrying for people...The structure of industry should be changed here, they shouldn't put this waste and highly polluting substances upstream form a city." The fault line between the Sichuan basin and the Qinghai-Tibetan plateau runs for almost 200 miles. Sichuan, Gansu and Shaanxi provinces all felt the force of the earthquake. Ben hedges

Earthquakes: Avoiding Indoor Environmental Hazards Once the Dust Settles
Many earthquakes strike without warning and they can occur almost anywhere in the country. Once an earthquake has struck, people need to be aware of aftershocks and numerous hazards before they reenter their homes and places of business. After it is deemed safe to return to properties many property owners and tenants may discover a wide range of indoor environmental hazards.

Earthquakes associated with oil and gas production: Mechanisms and management
The number of small-to-moderate sized earthquakes in large areas of the central and eastern United States began to increase dramatically in 2005. The occurrence of many of these earthquakes correlates with the increased use of horizontal drilling and multi-stage hydraulic fracturing by the oil and gas industry. In this talk, Professor Zoback explains how and why these earthquakes occurred and the steps that can be taken to reduce their occurrence, and what this may mean for oil and gas production in New Zealand. This is the inaugural lecture in the annual series of the S N Jepson Lectureship in Seismology. About Professor Mark Zoback Professor Mark Zoback is the Benjamin M. Page Professor of Geophysics at Stanford University. He is also the Director of the Stanford Natural Gas Initiative and co-Director of the Stanford Center for Induced and Triggered Seismicity. His current research is focused on unconventional oil and gas development and induced seismicity.
Inside The Three Gorges Dam A Man Made Disaster
When it officially became fully functional on July 4, 2012, China hailed the Three Gorges Dam, the world’s largest power station with 22,500 megawatts of installed capacity as a resounding success. They pointed to it's modern, highly efficient turbines, it's ability to increase shipping capacity along the Yangtze River and the fact that it could help to prevent downstream flooding by freeing up flood storage space. Not only all of this, but it was a move towards limiting greenhouse gas emissions. Sounds great, but, there are two sides to every story and the negative consequences of this monumental project, which cost the country the equivalent of around 25 billion U.S. dollars have been described by many as catastrophic both in its human and environmental impacts. Over one million people were displaced and the dam flooded historically significant archeological and cultural sites. Entire ecosystems were permanently altered with rare plant and animal life being pushed to the brink of extinction. Experts warned that the increased pressure such a massive structure would create on the surrounding land would trigger massive landslides and an increased risk of earthquakes, and their eerie predictions seem to be coming true. We’ll break down the story behind what has become without a doubt one of the most controversial pieces of infrastructure ever built by humankind, The Three Gorges Dam. Subscribe to Knowledge Feed for awesome mysteries, discoveries, fun topics and all around AWESOME videos ! Pros The dam has plenty of positive impacts, it wasn’t built just to cause landslides and displace millions. At full power the Three Gorges is capable of reducing coal consumption by over 30 million tonnes a year, thereby avoiding some 100 million tonnes of gas emissions and ten thousand tonnes of carbon monoxide. The presence of ship locks and even ship elevators believe it or not, allows giant vessels to traverse the Yangtze, boosting the country’s economy as a result. While the Chinese government hoped that the dam would provide power to 10% of people in China electricity demand in the country became much higher than expected and less than 2 percent of the population receive power through the dam today. Another positive impact of the dam, if you were to ask government officials would be it's ability to prevent a very real and very serious threat to the millions surrounding and directly affected by the Yangtze, Floods The Dam’s top priority, it seemed was in preventing the catastrophic floods that occur along the Yangtze, land that is populated by millions of people. In August of 1931 following a year of above average rainfall the Yangtze flooded. 500 square miles surrounding the river were submerged. Entire rice crops were destroyed. Without this essential food thousands in major cities like Nanjing starved following the catastrophe. All told over three and a half million lives were claimed in the months following the floods. More recently in 1998, a series of floods that lasted from June to September left 3,700 people dead, 15 million homeless and caused nearly 25 billion dollars in economic losses. 13 million homes were damaged or broken beyond repair. Now, government officials tout the dams apparent ability to prevent such catastrophes. The general public and especially those that live in areas near the Yangtze aren’t so sure. Flooding last year was the worst since 1998, leaving hundreds dead. Critics pointed to the dam and its failure to prevent the disaster. The 2016 floods were bad and only time will tell if the Three Gorges is capable of preventing an event as devastating as 1998, or scarier still something more along the lines of what transpired in 1931. This dam is so freaking big, some experts out there think it's sheer mass and the changes in water level it creates could actually cause Earthquakes The paths of major fault lines lie directly underneath the Three Gorges. Experts believed that the dam, as a result could cause a significant increase in seismic activity. As you know by now the dam was built despite these and many other concerns, some of which we’ve gone over. A study done by the China Earthquake Administration, a government entity showed that the experts were right. They registered 3,429 earthquakes around the reservoir between mid 2003 and the end of 2009, 30 times the frequency recorded during pre-dam periods. People fear a large earthquake and it's potential consequences as it relates to the dam. If the dam itself were to be damaged during a huge earthquake, for instance, the results would surely be devastating for the millions living in close proximity. Thanks everyone for joining us on our Knowledge Feedy look at the Three Gorges Dam. We hope that we’ve tipped the richter scales within you a bit and we can’t wait for you to join us on our next video. Good night and good luck.

USGS Drops Proof That Man-Made Earthquakes from Fracking Leaves Millions at Risk
www.undergroundworldnews.com Mother Nature may have given California earthquakes, but could the oil and gas industry be giving the same treatment to parts of Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Colorado, New Mexico and Arkansas? According to a study that the U.S. Geological Survey published Monday, about 7 million Americans now live in areas almost as prone to earthquakes as the Golden State, thanks in part to wastewater disposal from drilling oil. “By including human-induced events, our assessment of earthquake hazards has significantly increased in parts of the U.S.,” said Mark Petersen, chief of the USGS National Seismic Hazard Mapping Project, in a statement. “This research also shows that much more of the nation faces a significant chance of having damaging earthquakes over the next year, whether natural or human-induced.” Induced earthquakes often occur due to large amounts of chemical-laden fluids being injected into underground wells. The process loosens faults and makes them more likely to slip. Hydraulic fracturing, better known as fracking, is sometimes the cause itself as well, though rarely, according to the report. The process includes blasting millions of gallons of chemical-filled water underground to break apart shale deposits and release gas. That water then is also put into underground wells.

EPA Admits Trump’s Environmental Policies Will Kill 1,400 People A Year
The Trump administration unveiled their new environmental plans this week that would significantly roll back clean air protections that were put in place by President Obama. The EPA admits in their own assessments that their new plans will result in roughly 1,400 American deaths per year, but they seem fine with that if it helps the fossil fuel industry make a few more dollars each year. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.alternet.org/trumps-affordable-clean-energy-plan-will-cause-1400-deaths-year Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

And to be honest, even if they had nothing else to report on yesterday, they wouldn't have talked about this story. And that is, the Trump administration, their EPA issued their new affordable clean energy rule, is what they're calling it. And basically it's what they've come up with to replace the clean power rule that Barack Obama had put in place, that they repealed last year. And what this does is, it allows coal plants, coal fired power plants, to continue burning coal, to not have to modernize and reduce emissions in any kind of timetable. And if they do set a timetable and they go past it, that's okay too. Bottom line is it's going to increase the emissions the we see coming from these coal fired power plants. Now that's not something that we didn't already expect. We knew that this administration coming in wanted to repeal these Obama era rules in order to appease the fossil fuel industry to let them spew out as many emissions as they wanted. That pretty much would've happened with any republican administration at this point. They've made it clear that this is what they want to do. Here's the problem. The EPA admits while submitting this rule that it's going to kill upwards of 1400 American citizens every year by the year 2030. So they admit that they're putting a rule in place that is 100% going to result in more American deaths from heart and lung disease from the increased particulates coming into the air, not to mention the increased incidences of asthma and bronchitis. They're going to kill people, and they totally cool with that because it's going to save the coal industry, the fossil fuel industry, a little bit of money each year. People are going to die. That's not overstating it. It's not hyperbole. That is literally what the EPA says in their report. By doing this, we acknowledge that we're going to kill people. But we're 100% okay with it because the people who fund our campaigns, the people who fund are party, are going to make a little extra money. And hopefully that money's going to trickle down to us. That's the point that we're at in this country. And it bothers me so much because this is a story that I can promise you you're never going to see on any mainstream media outlet. No corporate news outlets are ever going to report this. But the EPA has admitted that between 430 and 1400 people every single year will die because of their new rule, because of the increased particulates in the air, because of the increased emissions. We are going to send more and more people to an early grave just to give the fossil fuel industry a little bump, you know, because coal is dying. Coal is dying out here in the United States because global demand is falling. Cleaner, cheaper, better sources of energy have been found. Other countries are going to those. There is no bringing the coal industry back in spite of what Donald Trump tells us every day. He's bringing coal back. He's reviving the industry. There's nothing that man could do to save it. It is dying out as it should be. And honestly, it's dying out because capitalism said, "We're tired of it." And yet, this administration is willing to kill more than 1000 people every year just to pander to those few remaining coal miners in this country, hoping that they're going to continue voting republican while those 1400 people who are dead lose their lives.

Various aerial views of mine STORYLINE: Efforts continued on Tuesday to reach six coal miners trapped more than 1,500 feet (457 metres) underground in the US state of Utah. The chairman of one of the mining companies which owns the mine said it would take at least three days to reach the men, and only then would they know whether the men had survived the cave-in. Bob Murray, chairman of Murray Energy Corporation of Cleveland, which part owns the Crandall Canyon mine, told reporters: "Progress has been too slow, too slow." Crews worked through the night in shifts, with teams coming and going along the road leading to the Crandall Canyon mine in a forested canyon. Even then, rescuers will have only a 2-inch (5-centimetre) hole into the chamber through which to communicate with the miners and provide them food or air, Murray said. Murray said rescue crews moved only 310 feet (95 metres) closer to the miners in the first 30 hours after the cave-in. The trapped miners - at least three of whom are Mexican - were believed to be in a chamber 3.4 miles (5.5 kilometres) inside the mine. Rescuers were able to reach a point about 1,700 feet (518 metres) from that point before being blocked by debris. Workers in hard hats came and went along a road leading to the mine in a forested canyon among mountains. Dozens of trucks and cars headed in near dawn and several miners emerged with blackened cheeks after an all-night shift. Murray said there were 30 pieces of "massive" mining equipment in place and 134 people dedicated to the rescue. He insisted that an earthquake caused the cave-in and denied that a method called "retreat mining" was taking place at the time. In that method, pillars of coal are used to hold up an area of the mine's roof.

M9.0 Aftermath of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami
M9.0 Aftermath of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami The aftermath of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami included both a humanitarian crisis and massive economic impacts. The tsunami created over 300,000 refugees in the Tōhoku region, and resulted in shortages of food, water, shelter, medicine and fuel for survivors. In response to the crisis, the Japanese government mobilized the Self-Defence Forces, whilst many countries sent search and rescue teams to help search for survivors. Aid organizations both in Japan and worldwide also responded, with the Japanese Red Cross reporting $1 billion in donations. The economic impact included both immediate problems, with industrial production suspended in many factories, and the longer term issue of the cost of rebuilding which has been estimated at ¥10 trillion ($122 billion). A further serious impact of the tsunami was the critical damage done to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station, resulting in severe radiation leaks and the prospect of a long-term health and environmental hazard in need of an expensive cleanup.

Events in the collective environmental memory of humanity
What are the most important events in the collective environmental memory of humanity? This is the question addressed in this video highlighting 22 events that professional environmental historians regard as turning points in the relationship between humans and the environment. Topics include deforestation, mining and oil extraction, nuclear disaster, bugs, Earth Day, a dust veil event and the invention of agriculture. The events discussed in the video move beyond the confines of human history. The earliest event is the asteroid impact that ended the age of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. At the other end of the timeline the video moves into the future and speculates about a future mega-earthquake in the Tokyo Bay area. In spatial terms, events were scattered over all five continents as well as the entire globe This video provides an introduction to some of the most prominent events in the interaction between humans and the planetary environment that have shaped history. The video is based on an article compiled and introduced by Frank Uekötter: "What Should We Remember? A Global Poll Among Environmental Historians", Global Environment, 11 (2013), pp. 184-214.

Explosive helium is leaking from massive earthquake fault under Los Angeles
Could LA's Big One be even bigger than we thought? Now explosive helium is leaking from massive earthquake fault under Los Angeles Indicates Newport-Inglewood fault more important than previously thought Risk in the next 30 years of 'big one' increased from about 4.7% to 7.0% However, study says risk of smaller quakes has actually gone down A huge fault in the Earth's crust near Los Angeles is leaking helium, researchers have found. They say the unexpected find sheds new light on the Newport-Inglewood Fault Zone in the Los Angeles Basin. It reveals the fault is far deeper than previously thought, and a quake would be far more devastating. It follows a report from the U.S. Geological Survey has warned the risk of 'the big one' hitting California has increased dramatically. The Newport–Inglewood Fault extends for 75 kilometers (47 mi) from Culver City southeast to Newport Beach at which point the fault trends east-southeast into the Pacific Ocean. The fault can be seen on the Earth's surface as line of hills extending from Signal Hill to Culver City. The fault has a slip rate of approximately 0.6 millimeter/year (0.02 in/year) and is predicted to be capable of a 6.0–7.4 magnitude earthquake on the moment magnitude scale. The fault was first identified after a 4.9 magnitude quake struck near Inglewood, California on June 21, 1920. UC Santa Barbara geologist Jim Boles found evidence of helium leakage from the Earth's mantle along a 30-mile stretch of the Newport-Inglewood Fault Zone in the Los Angeles Basin. He claims the results show that the Newport-Inglewood fault is deeper than scientists previously thought. Using samples of casing gas from two dozen oil wells ranging from LA's Westside to Newport Beach in Orange County, Boles discovered that more than one-third of the sites show evidence of high levels of helium-3 (3He). 'The results are unexpected for the area, because the LA Basin is different from where most mantle helium anomalies occur,' said Boles, professor emeritus in UCSB's Department of Earth Science. 'The Newport-Inglewood fault appears to sit on a 30-million-year-old subduction zone, so it is surprising that it maintains a significant pathway through the crust.' Considered primordial, 3He is a vestige of the Big Bang, and its only terrestrial source is the mantle. Boles's findings appear in Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems (G-Cubed), an electronic journal of the American Geophysical Union and the Geochemical Society.

The Big Quake - TechKnow
The 1,130km stretch of coastline from Vancouver, Canada to Mendocino, California, harbours an underwater threat just over 110km offshore - the seismic fault, Cascadia. Places like Japan, Chile and North America's Pacific Northwest all fall in what's known as subduction zones - ie, where one tectonic plate dives under another. The potential seismic activity from one of these plates 'popping' from on top of the other equates to an entire region affected by earthquake symptoms. The Cascadia Initiative (CI) is a years-long project that has been developed to study the effects of the fault and the two plates responsible for the action: Juan de Fuca and Gorda. From the data collected, it is confirmed that the Cascadia will only cause large magnitude earthquakes, ranging between every 300 to 500 years. The last noted eruption of the Cascadia was in the 1700s, making the Pacific Northwest overdue for the next quake. But alongside the shaking, the movement of the sea floor is also set to generate a tsunami wave that will reach Northwestern shores within minutes of the explosion. Impact studies are under way at Oregon State University, where civil engineer Daniel Cox utilises a wave laboratory to gauge the effect of different sized tsunamis. Replicas of towns based on actual layouts of coastal cities that could be affected by a Cascadia-triggered tsunami are used to collect data that is then input into a computer, simulating potential situations and scanning for the worst areas of damage. The results, even on a small scale, are terrifying, and the fear doesn't lie only in the force of the tsunami waves, but also in the projectiles that get swept up in it, including vehicles or temporary buildings that could crash and, ultimately, obliterate permanent structures. With knowledge of the mass panic caused during evacuation due to natural disasters, even this facet of the event has been mapped out by experts at Oregon State. Combining elements of how the water moves onto land and factoring in human behaviour leads to the conclusion that most people are still unaware of how to react should an event of this large scale arise. How likely is it that there will be a 9.0 magnitude earthquake on the Pacific Northwest within the next 50 years? "Somewhere within one in seven chance within the next 50 years," says Daniel Cox. "These odds are way too high for us to accept. There's too many lives at risk. We have to come up with some better ideas." - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

HEADLINE: A tour inside the Utah mine utah-mine-collapse CAPTION: The owner of the Crandall Canyon Mine in Utah, where six miners remain trapped, gave journalists a tour inside the mine Wednesday. (Aug. 9) [Notes:ANCHOR VOICE] Wednesday -- mine owner Robert Murray - took a small group of reporters on a tour inside the mine .. The entrance -- a forbidding darkness ... Once inside -- the group is led to a briefing area where miners put their names on a multicolored board. SOT: The group gets told how much safety training miners get SOT: safety seminar once or twice a year And get a chance to try the safety equipment each miner carries. SOT: you get mouth nose eyes, it will save your life Soon after, they're met by the mine owner who explains what the group will see on the trip into the mountain. SOT: we'll shut down the operation for just minutes .. So you can get a picture. From there the group gets into pickup trucks .. For a dark drive downward .. SOT: nats todd, we're getting pretty close -- The ceiling gets lower the farther the group heads in. SOT: pretty low todd, 2-inches there. After more driving .. A stop. Murray explains how things work down here. SOT: first you notice how we support the roof, we call this wire mesh -- SOT: and the stoppings are used to separate forces of air .. SOT: when the concussion occurred from the earthquake -- it blew out these stopping all through the mine At one point -- a vehicle carrying equipment toward the rescue operation passes by. SOT: nats of motor Murray points out some of the work crews are now doing to support the mine shafts from seismic activity .. SOT: bolt it in here so we can continue the rescue effort. Finally, Murray leads the group to where the cave-in separates the rescuers, from the trapped miners. SOT: where the damage is here, we're about 2-thousand feet deep. Here, it's a bee-hive of activity in the frantic rescue effort. SOT: nats SOT: nats of Murray .. And then they start they're drilling effort. SOT: nats of machines .. As machines here churn up debris in an effort to clear the cave-in. It's here that Murray also has hope. SOT: two things I want you to notice, very positive .. Number one the roof is in perfect condition. Second thing, Look at the amount of venthilation going through here. If the stoppings .. Then a lot of this will keep them alive .. And all they need is air, until we can get to them. But in the meantime -- the digging ... the drilling ... and the desperate effort to make contact with the miners -- continues.

2016 Terzaghi Lecture - Ground Deformation Effects on Subsurface Pipelines & Infrastructure
For more than 50 years, the Karl Terzaghi Lecture has been given by an individual honored for their exemplary contributions to the field of geotechnical engineering. The 2016 Terzaghi Lecture was presented on Tuesday, February 16 at the Geotechnical & Structural Engineering Congress by Thomas D. O'Rourke, Ph.D., Hon.D.GE, NAE, FREng, Dist.M.ASCE. Dr. O'Rourke is the Thomas R. Briggs Professor in Engineering at Cornell University. There are millions of km of pipelines in the U.S., and tens of millions worldwide used in water supplies, gas and liquid fuel delivery systems, electric power networks, and wastewater conveyance facilities. Geotechnical and structural engineers play a critical role in managing the performance of these systems that are affected by ground deformation arising from tunneling, deep excavations, and subsidence due to dewatering and mineral extraction as well as geohazards, such as earthquakes, floods, and hurricanes. The lecture explores the mathematical functions used to characterize soil deformation in response to underground construction and natural hazards. It examines both the soil and structural mechanics of soil-pipe interaction under various ground movement patterns, including the material and geometric nonlinearities of pipelines, conduits, and soil. Guidance is provided for estimating tolerable levels of ground deformation for frequently encountered continuous and segmental pipelines subject to tunneling, open-cut excavation, and extreme events, such as earthquakes and landslides. Large-scale laboratory testing and numerical modeling for the next generation hazard-resilient pipelines are described, and innovative ways of accommodating ground deformation are illustrated. Water supply and wastewater system response to widespread liquefaction-induced ground deformation during the Canterbury earthquake sequence in New Zealand are evaluated with high density LiDAR and GIS analyses. Dr. O’Rourke is an expert on natural disasters and their impact on the infrastructure supporting civil society, pipelines, and underground construction. He authored or co-authored over 360 publications on various geotechnical topics. He served on several teams reviewing and reporting on significant disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and earthquakes around the world. O’Rourke also headed a team that analyzed the impact on infrastructure systems of the attack against New York City on September 11, 2001. He served as chair or member of the consulting boards and peer review of many large infrastructure projects. Throughout his career, Dr. O'Rourke received many honors, including ASCE’s Stephen D. Bechtel Pipeline Engineering, Ralph B. Peck, C. Martin Duke, and LeVal Lund Awards. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and International Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering.

Diablo Canyon Nuclear Plant Quake Risks
Diablo Canyon literally sits on Shaky Ground! California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom says he has been pondering the issues relating to extending PG&E’s Diablo Canyon nuclear power station operation for some time. In a December 18, 2015 meeting of the State Lands Commission – which he chairs – he voiced his conclusions. This video provides verbatim excerpts of Newsom's concerns about the citing of a nuclear power plant in a seismically unstable location. Agenda item VI. 123 This video was created from an excerpt re-posted by the Ecological Options Network (EON) from the Commission's video archive as a public service.

Diablo Seismic Testing - Pt. 1 - Environmental Impact Report
This is the Intro. & Calif. Lands Commission Environmental Impact Report segment of the workshop on Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) proposed plans to conduct seismic testing off the Diablo Canyon Nuclear plant on the California coast. PG&E claims the sonic testing is necessary to map the earthquake faults on which the plant is built. Opponents of the project say the expensive tests - for which PG&E ratepayers would be charged - are not only unnecessary, since the faults are already adequately mapped, but would kill thousands of sea creatures like whales, dolphins, seals and fish in the testing area. In the wake of the on-going Fukushima disaster at a nuclear plant built - like Diablo Canyon - on earthquake faults in a tsunami zone, the Nuclear Free California Movement is calling for the permanent shutdown of the state's remaining nuclear reactors at both Diablo Canyon and San Onofre. The latter, which is also built on earthquake faults in a tsumami zone, is currently shut down after two new multi-million dollar steam generators both failed. In the workshop, held Sept. 24, 2012 by the California Department of Fish and Game PG&E, state and federal agencies and a long line of citizens presented their views on the issue. We have downloaded and re-posted the long public meeting in 6 segments for ease of viewing and to encourage wider public awareness of this important issue.

The MEGA New Madrid Earthquake is Coming Soon -
click for more news http://www.countdowntozerotime.com/ What began a couple of months ago as a series of small bubbles trickling into Bayou Corne, in Assumption Parish, Louisiana, has now turned into a massive water filled sinkhole that is pulling trees, boats, and anything else into its deep dark abyss. Experts say that all of this is being caused by a salt mining operation which was compromised in 2011. They are saying that this salt dome has failed, and is in the process of collapsing. But that is not the worst of it. . . . Mega Disasters: Earthquake In The Heartland The History Channel, 2009 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Psu5yp... Houses Shaking and 'Mysterious' Bubbles in Louisiana Swamp - July 3, 2012 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RleGRi... Louisiana Sinkhole Grows Overnight; Authorities Monitor for Radiation - Aug. 9, 2012 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBc5aZ... Louisiana probes cause of massive bayou sinkhole http://articles.cnn.com/2012-08-09/us... Various news reports of sinkholes from the past two years, covering states like California, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, and Florida. Lake Peigneur: The Swirling Vortex of Doom The History Channel, 2006 Lake Peigneur sinkhole disaster http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddlrGk... Football Field size Sinkhole opens up in Assumption Parish, Louisiana declares State of Emergency. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4G2fZT... . . . Over the years they have been filling a nearby salt dome in Assumption, Parish, Louisiana with radioactive waste and 1.5 million barrels of liquid Butane. If this sinkhole continues to devour land and trees in this area, it may eventually breach this storage area releasing not only toxic radiation into the environment, but also butane which will then become exposed to the air above. All it would take then would be the spark from a car ignition or some other source of fire to set in motion an explosion which some suggest could be equivalent to about 100 nuclear bombs similar to those used on Nagasaki or Hiroshima, in Japan. As bad as all of that would be, there is something even worse that could come from this. An explosion on that magnitude would create a giant crater deep in the earth exposing this salt dome to the elements. Since this salt dome is also connected to the much larger Luann salt basin, that means water from the bayou will trickle down and quickly become a torrent of water to dissolve the salt in areas covering 5 states, up to a mile thick. As the salt dome looses integrity, all of those deep oil wells will become funnels to either blow out or pull more water into the cavity. When that finally collapses, ALL of Louisiana will sink into the Gulf of Mexico. Parts of Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida will also be underwater. The salt dome under the Texas gulf will also collapse, sending a huge tsunami tidal wave as far inland as the Balcones Escarpment. Cities like Houston and New Orleans will sink into the ocean, never to be seen again. Cities like Fort Worth, Dallas, Waco, Austin, and San Antonio will also be flooded, but might be restored as the tidal wave recedes. The New Madrid fault and Mississippi river basin is being targeted with HAARP, frac tech drilling operations, and possibly other means (such as nuclear explosions). They are planning to create an earthquake in that region to split this nation with an inland sea from Chicago to New Orleans. It will not be an "act of God." I believe that this could happen very soon. Some will say that this is fear mongering, but there IS mounting circumstantial evidence that these are not mere accidents and we are slowly being led to the slaughter by the ruling elite. I would rather sound the warning and risk being called a deluded fool, than sit back and say nothing.
