What’s Yellowstone Trying To Tell Us?

A picture of a theater spotlight.

The spotlight is on the USA today for an increase in earthquakes.

There is an increase in both earthquake and volcanic activity around the western half of the USA today, and the spotlight is on Yellowstone. So, what’s Yellowstone trying to tell us?

Watch The USA

Magma is rising all over the world, but when we see an increase in earthquake activity in the USA, we need to pay attention to the patterns.

Specifically, we need to watch Oklahoma, the states surrounding the Yellowstone caldera, and California.

Large amounts of magma lie under Yellowstone’s super-volcano.

There has been an increase in earthquakes in Oklahoma, and although many people want to blame these quakes on fracking, this isn’t completely accurate.

Fracking has weakened the already vulnerable Craton boundary, much like shattering a broken window, but the signs to watch are that the Craton is heating up and expanding due to the magma channels beneath the North American Plate.

The Gulf of Mexico is rising and heating up, too, as well as the New Madrid (which is splitting and heating up), pushing the western half of the USA.

These are dangerous geologic times. Activity at Yellowstone is another sign that the USA is shifting.

Quakes In California

Expect an increase in the number and magnitude of quakes north and west of the Rockies, and this means California. We have been spoiled in the USA (you can say that again), and have experienced very few damaging earthquakes and volcanic eruptions in our recorded history.

It’s time to open our eyes to the reality that our country is not immune to geologic activity, and we have now entered into a new phase of Earth movement.
