Polar Quakes


Hemisphere Map Centered at 90°N,90°W Okay so ever since the big quake that happened at Yuletide a couple years back I've been fascinated by the earthquakes of the world .... following the link above will take you to a map of all the earthquakes in the Northern Hemisphere.

The one thing I've noticed, and have been concerned about, and which doesn't seem to be getting any media coverage is the number of quakes at the polar regions.

Perhaps it is just sheets sliding off the bergs, but over the last couple of years I have never seen so many of them. Yes there have been a few of the 1.0-2.0 variety in the waters surrounding the southern polar region, but now we are getting 4.0-5.0 in the northern polar region.

I have to wonder if the increased traffic in the area by the Russians, Canadians, and Norwegians to establish their 'ownership' of the lands doesn't have something to do with it.

It could also be the beginning indications of the 'polar shift' which seems to occur every 10,000 years or so (at least that was the last timeline I had heard) ... the shifting of the positive and negative poles they figure are accompanied by wild and violent weather shifts - very extreme - theory has it that the Earth itself will flip end-for-end.

The quakes could be indications of an impending flip ... or a shift in the tectonic plates such as what broke up Pangea (although that is much less likely)
