February 27, 2014 - Deep Time, Global Change and YOU lecture series: Magnitude 9 - How We Learned that the Largest Earthquakes on Earth Happen in BC Presented by John Clague, Earth Science, Simon Fraser University Evidence discovered by Canadian and U.S. scientists over the past 30 years has shown that the largest earthquakes on Earth occur at our doorstep, off the BC coast. In this presentation, Dr. Clague describes how scientists found and interpreted the geological and biological evidence of these earthquakes. He also reviews the likely effects and impact of the next "Big One" on Vancouver, Victoria, and cities in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. www.sfu.ca/cstudies/science
Greatland: Wonder if all the massive amounts of nuclear bomb testing have caused the poor earth to crack some, man is a crazy beast and evil. Why would men deliberately force war, poverty, fake illness and all the rest on the human race as well as all other species?
torputube: James Milton: smh
Billy Bunnell: don't you think if we have supervolcanoes we would have super quakes which we have experienced neither maybe?
Carla Garrett: have you been studying dutchsinse?
JAMES MILTON: Note the diagram at 20:35. The southern most segment of the Jaun de Fuca ridge off northern California is bounded by the Mendocino fault and the transform fault angling to the northwest to the next segment to the north. These non parallel faults cause the plate to be wider to the west and narrower to the east. However plate tectonic theory demands that the magnetized segments of ocean floor to originate at the ridge crest thus the complimentary stripes must be the same length. It is impossible for the faults to be non parallel and the magnetic stripes to be unequal in length as shown. This is a simple, straight-forward demonstration that plate tectonics is not real.
marilyn valin: Have to look at the whole world to see the progression of earth quakes.
carla mc ewen: does the added weight of huemanity and alla our industry, make a difference in subduction rates?
maxtonight: I wonder why he never mentions that Juan De Fuca /Farralon Plate is actually being spun clockwise around under the North American Continental Plate, which is pretty obvious just looking at a map.
tk421missing: "They" lie. In order to keep the masses away from the special cities where people get food and water that is not poisoned. God, the Force, destroyed Israel. God, the Force, will destroy those who poison innocents.
Brian Garrow: Check out the series of public lectures done by a professor from Central Washington University. His lectures are over a number of geological topics, including the Cascadia Subduction Zone. His name is Nick Zenter. Some really fascinating stuff and he uses the research done on the Washington and Oregon coasts.

Ju Valca: Scary to see along the ring of fire how active its been lately..Except B.C's coast!...Where is all the energy going, is it stored to burst any time soon??And Vancouver keeps building high HIGH buildings everywhere...
CreeperPlayZ 590: This turned out real.
abhishek khare: Woo
Duke Dingus: fracking sh!t
The Shootist: Lost interest when you got to fracking
donna4843: I heard of a study that showed saline consistency changes prior to a subduction zone eq. Any update on that?
