I got this little bit of spam last night from a 'concerned citizen'. And indeed they should be concerned - concerned about the proliferation of pseudoscience, concerned about the lack of critical thinking or even basic common sense they display in this email, or perhaps even concerned about the real agenda of whoever duped them into sending this silliness out.
Anyway, here's the text of the email without the headers:
Research data obtained from the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program shows an exponential acceleration in the frequency of large / noteworthy earthquakes during the period ( 2002 - 2004 ), a period in which heavy bombing of Afghanistan and Iraq took place. Most of the increase occurred in the Asian region. The number of large earthquakes during the period examined are as follows:
2004 ( 42 ) ; 2003 ( 48 ) ; 2002 ( 12 ) ; 2001 ( 7 ) ; 200 ( 6 ).
In 2004 earthquakes equal to or greater than 7 M which hit Indonesia are as follows:
Feb 7 ( 7.3 ) ; July 24 ( 7.3 ) ; Nov 11 ( 7.5 ) ; Nov 26 ( 7.1 ) ; Dec 26 ( 9.0 ).
Why was the public not informed of this trend which began in Feb 2004?
The increase in frequency of worldwide atmospheric disruptions resulting in large / noteworthy events such as severe floods, forest fires, volcanic eruptions, etc. plus the significant increase in frequency of earthquakes during this period warrants public debate.
Further, significant environmental disruptions in one region of the world cannot be self-contained, and thus can trigger atmospheric and seismatic disruptions in other parts of the world. Therefore, the cumulative total should be cause for concern by all people worldwide.
