The earthquakes are subtle, but there sure have been quite a few in the last few days. Haven't caused any more cracks in my walls. I like to think it's letting some pressure off there in the seismicity of our region.

Maybe it is the east coast of Baja continuing to lift. Nature's way of trying to save the palm tree from rising sea levels?

Additional Quakes


Two more this afternoon (Thursday the 8th) in the Gulf, centered 35 or so miles east of Loreto.

In the 4.5/4.6 range.

lencho,


Since Naples Italy has risen 15’ in a few decades baja rising a few inches in the same period is entirely possible.

Looking like the big island had some seismic activity. 2.7 to 6.2 depending on who reported.

A non-scientific opinion.....


Earthquake swarms when you are living near a volcano...Not good!

Earthquake swarms when you are living near a fault line....Better than one big one!

AK,

You’re from a part of the “Ring of Fire” that has both. I don’t know what this will turn out to be. There was a smaller swarm in this general area last year or so. We’re approaching the anniversary of the big Easter Mexicali quake. A volcano might be nice though. Tourists love them.

The "you got me under me under pressure' song lyrics comes to mind.

A relief valve of any kind can be a good thing, considering the alternative of a big bomb of a bang without any prior energy mitigation like these recent tremblers hopefully represent.

Dk, you were probably born before theory of plate tectonics was developed. You may also be one of the many anericans that thinks the bible creation story is more accurate than the story spun by geoscientists.

You might be surprised to learn that much of geoscience is about computer modeling of physical processes based on what we observe today. Just like climate science!

Dk, do you know that plate tectonic theory is based on what geologists observe in rocks? Much like climate history is based on what geologists see in rocks!
Scientist use observations today to theorize about the past and future.

Goat,

I’m old enough to have been there during the great “Continents are too massive to move around like skaters” debate. My best high school friend’s Dad was the head of the Geology Dept at a major university as well as a primary consultant for energy and resource companies.

The Geology Establishment literally went to their graves refusing to admit that the pacific hotspot that created the Hawaiian island chain and the now undersea mounts north of it moved rather than the plate above it. When in fact the plate moving overhead of the hotspot actually caused the island chains. My friend’s Dad was on the side that had it right!

The point here is that the scientific establishment is usually wrong and often fights to the death (their’s) against those pushing new and (in their opinion) unproven theories. Then the process repeats itself.

To say that because you’re pleased with the current establishment’s climate opinions the debate is over is just self serving BS!

Usually wrong??? As opposed to you, I guess, and the rest of the science deniers, who are usually right?:lol:

Cultist,

Use the complete quote! Editing quotes selectively is a cheap shot. But consider the source!

“ The point here is that the scientific establishment is usually wrong and often fights to the death (their’s) against those pushing new and (in their opinion) unproven theories. Then the process repeats itself.”

How many thousand examples of the above do you require?

You apparently don't know what "edit" means. I didn't edit your quote, nor take them out of context. Those are the exact words you wrote in the exact order you wrote them, and I didn't bother quoting the rest of the sentence, because it doesn't change the meaning of the first part, only embellishes it.

Cultist,

Still can't parse English sentences very well!

Ok, take out of context then.

“ Quoting out of context (sometimes referred to as contextomy or quote mining) is an informal fallacy in which a passage is removed from its surrounding matter in such a way as to distort its intended meaning.[1] Context may be omitted intentionally or accidentally, thinking it to be non-essential. As a fallacy, quoting out of context differs from false attribution, in that the out of context quote is still attributed to the correct source.

Arguments based on this fallacy typically take two forms:

As a straw man argument, it involves quoting an opponent out of context in order to misrepresent their position (typically to make it seem more simplistic or extreme) in order to make it easier to refute. It is common in politics.”

Stop being a condescending jerk. I know exactly what taken out-of-context means and explained that the part of your sentence I quoted did not in any way distort its original meaning, because the rest of that sentence just continues with the same assertion- science is usually wrong and anyone who challenges established science is vilified or silenced.

If someone writes, "I hate people who take advantage of others" and I only quote "I hate people", that is taking a quote out of context in order to distort what that person said.

If they write, "I hate people because people are disgusting", and I quote "I hate people", that isn't out of context, because it doesn't change the fact that the
writer made it clear that they hate people.

So what part of you saying "the scientific esstablishment is usually wrong" did you not mean?
