Natural gas prices venture into earthquake territory
It's still rising because of our ice age, and has barely hit earthquake levels. We got a strike-slip series on the main Oklahoma mechanism. I'm guessing if natgas plunges again, the earthquakes will stop. But I think it will go up because we are getting no Pacific heat at all, and it all comes in spurts from the Atlantic. We can't sustain warmth on that.
Meanwhile, the UK is experiencing a heat wave because of a very narrow jet of warm air from the Atlantic. I wonder how long that lasts. The Gulf Stream is still cut off by the cold Arctic current.
