What is happening with the Planet ~ Earthquakes, Volcanic Eruptions, Climate Change,


An Earth Changes Special

A group of experts discussed earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and climate change, and shared their predictions as to what we might expect in 2008 and beyond. First, geologist Jim Berkland and author/earthquake 'sensitive' Cal Orey spoke about quakes and weather cycles. Berkland noted that there's a relationship between earthquakes and heavy rain/snow, which can cause loading to the crust.

Offering their predictions, Orey suggested that there'd be flooding in the Tahoe area, a possible quake in Alaska affecting the West Coast, and around a 6.0 quake in or offshore Northern California within a year. Berkland finds it more likely that a 6.0 will hit Southern California this year, with a seismic window particularly strong in the new moon periods of May, June and July. As a sensitive, Orey said she sometimes hears "ear tones" before a quake; Berkland stated that some sensitives get headaches before earthquakes.

In the third hour, volcanologist R.B. Trombley and author Stan Deyo appeared. Deyo warned of extremes in the weather, and severe crop failures in the next 7-10 years. We could be facing extreme heat and fires if the sun's core starts to shrink, he said, citing solar changes as well as biblical and American Indian prophecies.

Trombley reported there've been 21 eruptions so far this year (some began in 2007), including Mount St. Helens. Yellowstone had some "background seismicity" but is rumbling along in normal mode. In the last hour, Berkland returned to join Deyo for listeners' phone calls.

Biography:

Stan Deyo has held Above Top Secret Security Clearance and worked undercover for the FBI. He was part of an exclusive "black project", headed by Dr. Edward Teller specializing in the development of "flying saucer technology".

Biography:

Geologist Jim Berkland was suspended from a California Government Geology Job when he made a prediction that a major quake would occur during the 1989 World Series in the Oakland Bay Area. It hit and the government told him to not make any more predictions. Now that he is retired, he publicly states quake windows. Mr. Berkland uses tidal flooding tables based upon Lunar Perigee (time when the moon is closest to earth to affect more gravitational pull on the earth).

Biography:

Robert "R.B." Trombley, Ph.D., is the founder and Principal Research Volcanologist of SWVRC and is a registered vulcanologist with the International Association of Volcanology & Chemistry of the Earth's Interior(IAVCEI). He is an award winning scientist and has traveled all over the world working on volcanoes. Dr. Trombley is also affiliated with many other volcanology associations. He is the principal designer of the highly successful software program "ERUPTION" Pro 10.5 which provides long-range forecasts of volcanic eruptions all over the world.

"R. B." has written, and had accepted, a paper for the American Geophysical Union (AGU), as well asseveral other papers, authored the book "Island Born of Fire: Piton de laFournaise" and has also written several articles involving volcanology forvarious volcano related publications. Dr. Trombley has also served as one ofthe Technical Advisors to the National Geographic Society on a TV documentary about volcanoes. He has been elected to "Who's Who" twice in his career. Dr. Trombley is a Professor Emeritus at the Phoenix, Arizona campusof the DeVRY University. Dr. Trombley received his BSEE from the Lawrence Institute of Technology, his Law degree from LaSalle University and hisPh.D. from Dallas State College and completed post-doctorate work at UCLAand the University of New Mexico in geology & physics.

Biography:

Cal Orey, once dubbed a "health and pets writer," is not just an author. A native Californian, this sensitive animal lover spread her wings in 2004. Orey wrote the book, The Man Who Predicts Earthquakes. The author knew her late pets sensed the Oct. 17, 1989 World Series Quake, a 7.1 monster that geologist Jim Berkland predicted and coined. But through her research for the book, she has discovered that she, too, can sense imminent shakers. She is one of the countless "earthquake sensitives" -- humans who have shown an ability to detect precursors that signal an upcoming quake.
