My last article on Toronto seismicity is not a be-all and end-all theory of earthquakes, but rather a series of hypotheses that can be easily tested for a few bucks. The problem is that all the powers that control us are against it. I'm talking Big Oil, Big Nuclear, Big Government and all that. To be kind, they are not actively against it, they are ignoring it, like vw and diesels.
Nothing good could come to these guys if we resurrected Earth Sciences in Canada. Harper destroyed the federal science system which was the only outside third party that had the nerve to do what should be done. Perhaps the new guy can do it, but money has to be taken away from welfare projects. :) Not likely.
In this area, we are better off than the US, which does nothing for Eastern Seismicity. Of course, it will all change with a big Oklahoma earthquake, and all the insipid media will ask the question "Could it happen here?". A resounding yes on that.
One reason that the big powers have such a chokehold on us is fact the media has been dead a long time, but they haven't reported it yet. There's been no money for them to try and penetrate the 'PR wall' of the Powers. Now they are finally folding up their tents. Only social media is left "Trial by Youtube".
Only disasters can crack the facade of the big Powers. Until then, everything is okay.
**Whoops, this is depressing, and I must always force myself to cheer up. I have total faith that Papa Trudeau will fix this all up. That's my story, and I'm sticking with it. :)
