Space Weather and Quakes
We have just had a 7.7 quake near Cuba (more on this later). Here follows a Twitter channel worth following:

Here follow some interesting online comments (anonymous):
“The second we get a sunspot we have a 7.7 [quake]. This pattern hasn’t stopped since the sun went into grand minimum. The sun is deader than a door-nail and if it get any activity we get quakes. Just like every other grand minimum. The volcanoes go when the sun has no spots and the cosmic rays are highest, and when you do get spots or storms we get earthquakes. This is actuated by your decreasing magnetic fields that even NASA has admitted for 20 years now”.
“Holy ****, we actually got a tiny sunspot, no wonder. We get Aurora now whether we have spots or not. We have a 200 year low in spots and almost never any at all. Expect the giant quakes to return when we hit tiny maximum in a few years. And of course, when these nothing burgers happen with our lowered magnetic fields they come up with all sorts of ways to explain their increased impact”.
"The crack developed on Jan. 28th when the interplanetary
magnetic field (IMF) near Earth tilted south. This partially
canceled our planet's north-pointing magnetic field, creating
a gap through which solar wind could flow. During Solar Minimum
(happening now), we rely on such cracks and gaps to
"stoke the fires" of aurora borealis without the usual
support of sunspots and solar flares."
“This was preceded by quakes in Puerto Rico. I also saw a big blot echo in Peru or somewhere around there recently. I think there may have been one in Caribbean too. Those are almost always and indication of bigger earthquakes. Surprised they don’t put earthquake warning out when we see those”.
The huge 7.7 quake recently happened of the coast of Cuba:
This earthquake epicenter occurred along a “strike-slip fault” located between the North American Plate and Caribbean Plate. This scenario has minimal tsunami threat as land slides horizontally across rather than vertically.

Make up your own mind
As usual I urge you to make up your own mind. Is it coincidence that climate change (whatever that is) coincides with increased earthquake activity and pole shift? I don’t think so. Of course it is true that correlation is not causation. What do I mean by that? Let me tell you a story……
It was noted that women always got pregnant in the spring when storks returned from their migration and built nests on the chimney. It was concluded that the storks brought the babies.
What is wrong with this reasoning? The two events are correlated because they both happen in spring (stork migration and pregnancy). They both happen in spring for obvious reasons. However, we cannot conclude that stork migration causes human pregnancy. They are unrelated events. Correlation is not causation.
Therefore solar activity and earthquakes might be totally unrelated. However, (for what it is worth) I don’t think that is the case. It seems logical to me that “earth weather” is influenced by “space weather” and that our inner iron core is influenced by magnetism (or the absence/reduction of magnetism). The climate change supporters have latched onto space weather and pole shift and are now arguing that pole shift is caused by “earth wobble” namely, the melting ice caps cause a weight redistribution (of water) which in turn causes the core to move and that results in earthquakes. I find this disingenuous because the new religion of climate change blames everything on man made CO2 .
First, the loss of polar ice is disputed as is almost every other claim made by climate change. Sea levels have certainly not increased as much as they predicted no matter what they say and neither has the average temperature. Secondly, the polar shift event is periodic as established by Geo-science and ancient cave paintings etc. That means it happened before civilization and before man made CO2. It seems then that the Z-pinch plasma event is not caused by “earth wobble” the opposite is true. The sun (and Space Weather) influences our magnetic field and therefore the amount of incoming radiation. In turn this causes (?) magnetic pole shift. Are we to believe that all this has nothing to do with climate, sea currents, upper atmospherics etc?
Does all this explain periodic cold (ice age) and warming earth phases, or is it all due to Milankovitch Cycles and Precession etc? There are probably dynamic and complex feedback loops between all these processes (including CO2). Scientific reductionism and binary answers are simplistic and therefore probably wrong. All these things are in play. We are not God and we do not know everything. We are like the kid who takes apart his clock and puts it back together and then finds that he has parts left over (LOL). A man (and mankind) needs to know his limitations. My opinion….they are connected in complex ways that we don’t fully understand. Man without God is like the beast that perishes. Sometimes we are just dumb animals.
