Cause of 9.0 quake?



If you want corporate oil tragedies all you have to do is point to the the massive conflict and environmental pollution the industry causes.



I think that's bad enough; it's not necessary to put up a page that says 'I know nothing about petrogeology or seismology. People who do have cast doubt on my suspicions. I still say it's not a coincidence that oil prospecting took place in an area where *a month later*, there was an earthquake, and then *gasp*, two days after that quake but THOUSANDS OF MILES AWAY, the biggest earthquake for forty years occurred.'

Q: Two earthquakes occurred on the same day. Are they related?
A: Often, people wonder if an earthquake in Alaska may have triggered an earthquake in California; or if an earthquake in Chile is related to an earthquake that occurred a week later in Mexico. Over these distances, the answer is no. Even the Earth's rocky crust is not rigid enough to transfer stress fields efficiently over thousands of miles.
