There is an article in ADN today which tells about some promising earthquake prediction research that is said to be able to predict some earthquakes. What would be necessary to get Alaska's Congressional Delegation to take up this as something that could be of considerable value to all Alaskans and maybe to the rest of the world? With the recent Haitian quake it seems like this is a most timely subject and one that might save large numbers of lives here in this hotbed of temblors.

This reminded me of the episode involving Einstein and Professor Gutenberg at Caltech. It is recounted here -

The High-frequency Active Aural Research Project (HAARP) in Anchorage is supposed to be working on some of this research.

What blows my mind is recent accusations by Venezualan president Hugo Chavez that the US has a new "Earthquake Weapon" that caused the recent tragedy in Haiti. I am NOT making this up!

Does that nut job actually believe that nonsense or is this just more anti-American propaganda? OOPS - Rules of the road says we can't make any belittling personal attacks on this forum. Ok - I apologize for the name calling. I will not call him a nut job. But COME ON people, this is just too bizarre for words in my book.
