My last article on Toronto seismicity is not a be-all and end-all theory of earthquakes, but rather a series of hypotheses that can be easily tested for a few bucks.  The problem is that all the powers that control us are against it.  I'm talking Big Oil, Big Nuclear, Big Government and all that.  To be kind, they are not actively against it, they are ignoring it, like vw and diesels.

Lest we forget.  Alaska just had an M7.1 that woke everybody up, but no damage.  That's the trouble with preparing for earthquakes in this neck of the woods -- those in power say we're no Alaska or California, blah, blah.  Problem is that a rare earthquake for them is an 8 or 9, for us it's a 6 or 7. This is the latest seismicity map for Southern Ontario.  The two lines mirror the two

Extrapolation without physics

Reference I like this article because it goes into the danger of trying to extract signal from noise for a correlation.  People then want to use this correlation to predict future events.  This happens all the time in earthquake studies, but was a new thing for climate. For earthquakes, people are so jaded by the numerous attempts that they demand physics.  The electromagnetic signals are

Some people say they could never live in California. The earthquakes are scary and the state will fall into the sea. The politics are too crazy. It's an urban hell. Californians are too flaky. Pick you reason. But there are things that are undeniably nice about California. Our fall season is one of them. Oh, it's true that my fair state can hardly compete with the extravaganza of
