Earthquake shakes Indonesia

A strong earthquake with a magnitude of 6.1 on the Richter scale has jolted islands in north-eastern Indonesia on Saturday but no immediate damage or casualty has been reported and no tsunami alert has been issued.

The quake was centered 155 km (95 miles) southeast of Labuha in the North Moluccas at a depth of about 30 km (20 miles) and occured at 4:41 p.m. local time,according to the local Meteorological and Geophysics (BMG) agency.

The BMG said the quake did not trigger a tsunami. It was the latest of a series of earthquakes to jolt Indonesia in recent months.

Indonesia is located on a series of geological fault lines, making it vulnerable to frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

  1. The present surge in earthquake activity might be antropic. 2010 is statistically the highest year on record on earthquakes for all categories, except for the man-made surge during II world war carpet bombing. If we consider only the statistics for April it is an all time record. But what has humanity done this April 2010, to create fluctuations in the gravitational and magnetic fields of the earth responsible for magma motions that cause earthquakes? Very simply: we have switched on what is today the strongest gravitomagnetic field on this planet, the Large Hadron Collider. This machine that could latter in the decade at higher energy/mass produce strangelets (Pb-pb collisions) and black holes (over 10 Tev collisions), is today the strongest gravitomagnetic field on Earth. According to Einstein it should be producing gravitational waves that provoke mass displacements in the magma, cause of Earthquakes. 2 types of gravitational waves take place: perpendicular affecting the antipodes (Australia and similar islands) and parallel, affecting the borders of the Eurasian plate (Iceland volcano, etc.) those are the top spots for earthquakes. Many people are dying; and if the machine produces latter in the decade black holes or strangelets, all people might die. A cautionary stop of that machine and serious studies on its effects are long overdue.
