We are told that climate change and global weather anomalies are caused by global warming, but this might not be entirely true…
Multi-sensor studies conducted before and after the 9.3 magnitude earthquake off Sumatra on December 26, 2004 published in International Journal of Remote Sensing showed significant changes, as well as correlation, between land and ocean temperatures, as well as wind speeds and humidity in the quake zone and beyond.
In addition to these changes, the quake caused a shift of the earth on its axis and shortened the day by increasing the speed of earth’s rotation. It is very reasonable to conclude that this in turn, might have caused climatic changes all over the globe and various weather anomalies worldwide.
The mega earthquakes in Haiti, Chile, and most recently in Japan had had very similar effects. In fact, every earthquake of magnitude greater than 5.0 causes changes to the landmass, wind speeds, and if it were near it, also to the ocean. Following every mega quake there are thousands of aftershocks that last for months after the main event.
In this light, following each mega earthquake we can expect more weather anomalies such as droughts, record breaking snow or rain falls, floods, and significantly warmer or colder temperatures.
It is no accident that after the two mega quakes in Haiti and Chile at the beginning of 2010, we have seen more severe weather anomalies globally, and we can therefore expect more of them during the rest of this year as well as the years to come.
This means that global warming due to human activities is not the main cause of recent climate changes, and even though it is good to curb the emissions, it will not stop the climate change.
Why is it then that it is not studied more? It is a mystery, especially because of serious implications of correlation between mega earthquake events and global climate change.
Perhaps it is political correctness that makes scientists as well as the public stuck on global warming theory. Maybe it is time to look for clues elsewhere, and start to plan how to predict and adapt to our changing global weather.
