I heard this geologist on the radio tonight and thought he might be on to something.
This week saw millions of dead fish. Jim thinks it has to do with the magnetite sensors in the brain being disturbed before a major quake.
This magnetite helps fish return thousands of miles to their original spawning grounds, dogs and cats return home after being moved hundreds of miles.
But before major upheavals, animals especially seem affected by disruptions in the earth's magnetic fields, and reportedly the number of missing cats and dogs increases dramatically just before a quake.
The magnetic polls are moving. Perhaps they always have been.
Earth's Magnetic North Pole Is On the Move
A Major Earthquake in North America Imminent?
Take a look at what experts are increasingly calling the so-called ring of fire that is encircling the entire Pacific Ocean. You remember Chile's massive earthquake about a year ago. Then we had that big one in New Zealand just last month. Then of course Japan.
If this clockwise trend continues, my next guest says North America looks to be on tap next. Don't laugh.
Geologist Jim Berkland is worried. When he worries, you should worry too. Jim accurately predicted, get this, the 1989 so-called World Series earthquake four days before it shook the San Francisco Bay Area. And Jim says this month is of particular concern. Why, Jim?
JIM BERKLAND, GEOLOGIST: On the 19th of this month not only the full moon, but within an hour the closest approach of the moon to the earth until the year 2016. The next day is the equinoctial tides. So you're bringing together three of the maximum tide raising forces. We know about the ocean tides. But there is also an Earth tide. And there is a tide in the ground water. All of these help to release sudden, built up strain, and cause earthquakes.
CAVUTO: But that would seem to imply that we could be looking at a very imminent event in the United States within the next week or two? Is that right?
BERKLAND: Yes. My -- what I call a seismic window, this top seismic window in years is developing between the 19th and 26th of this month. And this was 7.0 monster and it says geologist had warned about it. And a week earlier, the they were talking about the tides, not to worry about the really tides coming up. I think there is worry here too.
I used to just scoff at these kinds of things, because I was a mainstream geologist until I found out that earthquakes are fitting a pattern. The big earthquake in the Indian Ocean followed massive beachings of whales in Taiwan -- not Taiwan, but New Zealand and Australia and Tasmania. And then within couple of days, they had a 8.3 in south of New Zealand, and then came the 9.1 in the Indian Ocean, with the big tsunami, on the very day of the fool moon.
The previous big quake and tsunami was in Alaska, which is a 9.2 magnitude event, on the day off the full moon, on the 27th of March.
And do you remember the week before this last quake, all of the talk about the huge solar flare?
Was the Sun a trigger to the Japan Earthquake on Friday?
TWS Meteorologist Kevin Martin thinks there is a correlation between solar and seismic activity.
