North And South Poles Continue to Shake With Increased Earthquake Activity

The number of earthquakes at the poles is increasing, and over the past 72 hours, numerous large quakes have occurred at both the North and South Polar tectonic plates.

The Earth’s Crust Cracks Like An Egg

The Earth’s crust cracks like the shell of a boiled egg.

When you boil an egg, the inner egg gets hot, and the harder outer shell cracks to release pressure. The Earth’s crust can be viewed in a similar way, albeit, the Earth is much more complex than an egg. But, the principle is the same.

The Earth’s “plate boundaries” are cracks in the “planetary egg”, and when the Earth heats up and shifts at the poles, the planet “vibrates” and the crust moves. Both the North and South Poles balance and spin in the middle of massive cracked plates.

Most of the plate boundaries cannot be seen because the Earth is far too big to see what’s hidden beneath the oceans. Yet, we know when the Earth moves because earthquake and volcanic activity increase near these polar boundaries.

In 1955, Einstein said:

When the mantle moves, the poles follow.

EQs Over The Past 72 Hours

In order of occurrence:

Northern Polar Region

  1. 4.3  Ft. McPherson, Canada
  2. 3.6  Ft. McPherson, Canada
  3. 5.3  Kuril’sk, Russia
  4. 4.3  Semisopochnol, Is, Alaska
  5. 4.7  Petropavilovsk-Kamchatskly, Russia
  6. 4.6  Petropavilovsk-Kamchatskly, Russia
  7. 4.3  Nikolski, Alaska
  8. 4.3  Homer, Alaska
  9. 4.4  Shawville, Canada
  10. 3.6  Shawville, Canada
  11. 3.5  Chirikof Is, Alaska
  12. 4.4  Petropavilovsk-Kamchatskly, Russia
  13. 3.5  Homer, Alaska
  14. 4.4  Petropavilovsk-Kamchatskly, Russia

Southern Polar Region

  1. 4.9  Raoul Is, New Zealand
  2. 5.3  South of Africa
  3. 5.0  South of Africa
  4. 5.0  South of Africa
  5. 5.7  South Mid-Atlantic Ridge
  6. 5.3  Visokol Is, South Atlantic Ocean
  7. 5.0  West Chile Rise
  8. 4.2  Rolleston, New Zealand
  9. 4.8  Southern East Pacific Rise
  10. 5.7  South of Africa
  11. 4.9  West Chile Rise

With this much activity at the polar plates, there is little doubt the poles are moving.
