Title: This is bad..................VERY bad

Mount Fuji close to erupting, experts say (http://now.msn.com/mount-fuji-close-to-erupting-experts-say)

I really feel sorry for the volcanologists tasked with trying to keep people alert without causing panic. After the recent earthquake and tsunami the whole country is on edge so itís a fine line indeed more suited to psychologists than scientists just trying to warn people of danger. I was going to say potential danger but the factors mentioned are beyond that. The problem with this branch of science is that itís based on Mother Nature's timeline and people don't work in that scale well. The eruption could happen tomorrow or 20 years from now and by Mom Nature time thatís "recent" or "Very soon" heck even "immediate". Problem is they have to put out the alert and hope people don't get complacent if it does not happen for five years. At the same time if they kept their mouths shut waiting for an absolute proof of when it will happen it will be too late.

Yikes GMS, they don't need that, and neither do we(rest of the world) - the damage to Japan would be another terrible blow, not to mention the disruption of weather patterns, ash deposits etc.

         Its the same old story, just a different chapter. Most of the people in the world
   want to belive that " oh that won't happen there just saying that ".

         Everyone on the East coast of the U.S. and Canada is sitting at the target line

     in front of a mega cannon aimed at them called the island of La Palma. Its off

     the coast of Africa, not as large as some islands but large enough to wipe out

     most people that are living in the area from the coast to several miles inland

     from it. How you ask ( some people don't have a clue about what it's up to ).

       Well its a volcano thats still alive but just sitting there right now, but inside it

      it has a cancer that is eating is guts out. Its guts on the west side of it not on

     the East side. This cancer is rain water erosion that has cut very large channels

     from the top of the ridge that runs North to South between the two volcanos

     that make up the island, these erosion channels run up and down the side of it

     very much like how they drill the side of a mountain where they are putting a

     road through it. These channels are cutting very deep down into the flank ot it

     and will just keep eating there way down untill they reach magma. When that

     happens the whole West side will be sliced off from top to bottom and slide
 
     into the deep water that is right up to the island.

     This will be the largest landslide the world has ever seen and it will throw up

     a wave estimated to be as much as 1000 feet high and race across the Atlantic

     to North America in eight hours. It will reach from the southern tip of Fla. to

     the upper coast of Canada! Do the math, how many people do you think could

     or will be able to go far enough inland, and fast enough to excape. 

     This is one of those " its not if it could happen, but when will it happen " kind

     of things.

     You don't belive me ?  Look it up ! There was a program about it on TV
     about a year ago and several times this last summer that showed all about it.

And it's even worse if you are a seismologist living in Italy and you CAN'T predict earth quakes.

Exactly brotherjames - a dangerous game that prediction stuff. The scientists who released the info that XT mentions above are in hot water too but from their peers. Looking over their info I can see why. They were ..... creative  with some data. Made some assumptions and leaps of faith and then meda grabbed it and ran. Now they are being accused of fear mongering. The point being that the average person has not got the technical background to be expected to understand when a scientist is trying to project possibilitites based on perhaps thin evidence and their personal belief versus hard data and certainty. How the data is presented  - ie in credible science news format can be misleading as you cannot tell when the conjecture parts cut in. Makes it hard for a scientist to just do some arm waving and "what ifs" if every tme they do there is somebody trying to blow it up in media hype.

I  would like an update on this.  One of my boys is in the Air Force and is stationed there with his family.  On the realistic side, this is a natural thing and is how gold, crystals, and minerals are either deposited or formed.  Only the Lord has the answers to what is going to happen and when, but science may give us a clue.

I have claims in Central BC and this summer there was some movement along the fault lines in our vicinity. We had a pond drain in a matter of days that was situated in a in a bedrock type bowl. we also noticed that a couple of springs ran dry for the first time since we been Prospecting in the area. There was a large beaver pond that was beening fed by these springs and it had significant water depletion by seasons end.  <_miner_>

I figured Yellowstone would be the next major explosion in the US thanks to mother nature and take out most of the Midwest in the process.

That IS bad. So totally non geological. Something blowing up in the manner nature truly intends to do would make an awesome Hollywood spectacle if imagined and created realistically. Even the sound of it was trash.

Next up, maybe they should hang weather forecasters and stock market analysts?  What a story.

tis a joke for sure.the church the bible and Nozderdamous were all great predictors the Italians shoud no that better than anyone about predictions.yes all the high paid professionals say yay to this and yay to that but they play a guessing game and should not be condemed to Death for being stupid enough to make a profit.we the fools that listen to these pros deserve what wee get.Everybody wants to put blame on some poor virgin before she is old enough to enjoy her life.look at Japan some of the best science in the world.nobody guessing at all the devastaion there.but sure a few heads get lopped off.just becuase.When mother earth decides too have a bowel movement she will where ever she wants too and if anything like my mothr inlaw you do not want to be there.Still waiting for YK2 and the Inca calender.P.S. will give predictions for a nominal fee no warranty.Luck Mcbain.
