An Up Tick in Earthquake Activity: Is it a Sign of Trouble Ahead?

By Dr. John L. Reizer

What’s causing such an up tick in seismic activity in the past several years in areas of the world that are usually considered seismically stable?

Are we, in fact, beginning to experience major earth changes that some have claimed would occur in 2012?  Are ancient fault lines, previously undiscovered, suddenly becoming active after being relatively silent for thousands of years?

The truth of the matter is that scientists don’t really know what’s happening. The, so called, experts appearing on television programs, in an effort to assure people that everything in the world is safe, are as confused as everyone else. They don’t have the slightest clue about why we’re experiencing earthquakes in unusual areas. They want you to believe everything transpiring, seismically, is completely normal. Whether these types of activities are normal or not is a matter of opinion.

Mainstream media will always attempt to quell public anxiety by downplaying this kind of news. Others will attempt to spread fear by making more out of a situation than is really warranted. What level of concern does this subject deserve? Only the future can reveal that answer.

We are living in extremely interesting times. Of course that could be said about any period of time that has transpired on our planet. The world is always changing and adapting to its environment. Earth is a very old place and we have only experienced a brief sliver of its existence within the cosmos. Our true lack of understanding about this amazing planet precludes us from being able to understand what lies in front of us.

We should always be prepared for natural earth changes and not be so quick to dismiss the theories and ideas of knowledgeable people just because they may have different opinions than mainstream thinkers.

Our recorded history, what we routinely use to determine normal versus abnormal earth changes, does not represent a very long period of time. This is especially true when we consider the actual age of our planet. Since most everything on earth seems to revolve around cycles, it’s hard for us to be able to take into consideration the cyclical earth changes that might have happened prior to our keeping of records.

We know for a fact that areas on our planet previously covered by water are now land masses and certain areas that used to be above water are presently covered by the oceans of the world. Our planet changes and it changes more often than we might believe. It’s easy to think of earth as a stable place when you only glance at a relatively brief period of its history. Recorded history gives us the false illusion that our planet is a stagnant world and that major earth changes do not regularly occur. We must keep in mind that not every major earth change has to happen a million years from now. We might not be able to predict the future, but we can certainly increase our chances for survival by being prepared for the unusual. And we should all know by now that unusual things can certainly happen!

Just Thinking Out Loud: Would They Tell Us About an Earth Changing Event?

An earth changing event is about to take place. It’s not the first nor the last time this sort of thing has happened. According to ancient records being closely guarded and kept out of the public domain by certain world leaders, the coming event will not destroy earth, but many people will die. The passage of the event will cause massive planetary changes, affecting most forms of life. At first, these changes will be barely noticeable. Later, as the event draws nearer, the earth changes will grow in intensity and the people of the world will begin to notice that something is not quite right.

Members of the media will offer conventional explanations for the changing weather and environmental conditions. Government agencies will assure their citizens that everything taking place is perfectly normal and there’s nothing to worry about.

The leaders of the world, aware of impending doom, have long ago made a collective decision to remain silent and not alert citizens, living within their respective nations, about what is happening. It’s important to understand that there’s absolutely nothing that can be done to stop this event. To alert the people of the world is to risk worldwide panic. This sort of civil unrest could ultimately be very dangerous for people in positions of power. Riots, looting, and acts of aggression might be directly focused at world leaders.

The powers that be believe that if the general public knew massive earth changes were in motion and that life was going to be drastically changed, most people would not report to work or bother to pay their mortgages and taxes. The entire global infrastructure would likely collapse and create a hellish situation for any person in a position of authority.

The really important members of society, the elite families that have run the world for longer than most people realize, will attempt to ride out this nightmare situation in subterranean security bunkers. Their plan, very simply, is to exit such shelters after the event so they can reclaim their positions of power and wealth. They have instructed their puppets, the elected officials running various governments, to keep quiet and conduct business as usual.

By the way, are you going to watch major league baseball’s All-Star Game this week? And how much money do you think Tom Cruise had to cough up in his divorce settlement?  Who do you think will host American Idol next year?

2012: If All Hell Breaks Loose – Could You Survive?

By Dr. John Reizer

Imagine, for a moment, that all hell breaks loose and you are forced to survive, for several months, without any of the comforts associated with modern technology. Think about how different your life would be without electricity, fresh water, grocery stores, banks, ATM machines, hospitals, prescription drugs, television, computers, and a whole list of other items I’m probably overlooking. Let’s address the large, pink elephant standing in the middle of the room that no one wants to discuss. Most of us Americans would find it extremely difficult to exist, for any significant amount of time, without the modern comforts that are firmly embedded within our culture and a major part of our lives.

The average U.S. citizen has about a 5-7 day’s supply of food stored in a refrigerator. Without electricity, most of that food would spoil in a day or two. It wouldn’t take very long for people to grow hungry and thirsty if their access to food and water was suddenly withdrawn. Upon closer inspection of this situation, it would be fair for me to write that most folks just don’t have the necessary skills to successfully live off the land.

If an incident, causing all hell to break loose, was catastrophic enough that it permanently altered our way of living so that we were prevented from ever having access to modern technology and subsequently forced to function in a new and foreign environment, many of us would, unfortunately, die. Within a relatively short period of time, supermarkets and food stores would be raided and picked to the bone. Gasoline and other fuels would, instantly, become unavailable or, at best, scarce. Whatever gas you had in your car’s tank would probably be the only fuel you’d be able to come by. After that, you would have to pedal a bicycle or walk to get around.

There are too many products and services to count, that we depend upon each and every day, currently available to us through the industrial – retail grid. Living outside that grid is such a tough deal when you have been raised your entire life in a society that is so dependent on various technologies.

The point of this article is to highlight the fact that a large majority of Americans are extremely unprepared to sustain themselves and family members in the event that “something big” happens.

If you are silly enough to believe that natural catastrophes cannot happen on a local, regional or even global level – think again!  The people in Fukushima, Japan were probably not thinking about having to permanently leave their homes several hours before the earthquake and tsunami destroyed their lives.

There has been a steady increase in global earth changes in the past few years. We have all read about the up-tick in major earthquakes, erupting volcanoes, abnormal flooding and animal die-offs. These natural disasters are more prevalent than ever before. The skeptics are always quick to put subjects like 2012 into conventional order telling everybody that life will go on as it always has. And maybe it will!

My feeling on 2012, and anything that might bring catastrophic consequences to our planet, country, or local community, is that it’s always better to be  a little over prepared for “something big” than a little under prepared. My advice to anyone willing to listen is to take the time to get ready for “something really big.” The signs and symptoms coming from the bowels of mother earth are everywhere. I would have at least a six-month supply of food and water to keep every member of my family healthy. A year’s supply would be even better. The more survival supplies you can get your hands on, the better your chances of survival will be. Realistically, it may take several months, or longer, before any form of normalcy returns to society, if it ever returns. Until you are able to produce your own crops and secure regular access to clean drinking water, you will have to rely on prepackaged foods and a lot of stored water.

Of course there are many other considerations to think about when it comes to surviving a catastrophic incident. Food and water are certainly very important, but clothing, shelter, medicines, and first aid supplies shouldn’t be forgotten. In addition to these items, a first-class survival manual is a must have.

If you are like most people I know, you won’t last long if and when all hell breaks loose unless you take the time and effort to prepare in advance. This is your opportunity to organize and get ready for “something really big” that might be coming our way. Use your time wisely; your life might depend on it.
