Dangerous developments in the bizarre Canary Islands earthquake swarm, which began in July, have the government of the small East Atlantic nation worried — but the threat reaches far beyond, across the ocean to the U.S. East Coast.
Eleven years ago the BBC introduced the Canaries mega-tsunami theory to the English-speaking world in a broadcast special, since then rebroadcast widely and frequently, that named La Palma as the trigger for an Atlantic Apocalypse:
“What will happen when the volcano on the Canary Island of La Palma collapses? Scientists predict that it will generate a wave that will be almost inconceivably destructive, far bigger than anything ever witnessed in modern times. It will surge across the entire Atlantic in a matter of hours, engulfing the whole US east coast, sweeping away everything in its path up to 20 kilometers inland. Boston would be hit first, followed by New York, then all the way down the coast to Miami and the Caribbean.” — BBC, October 12, 2000
The mainstay theory seems perilously possible now, but the mainstream media is strangely silent about it. After airing the mega-tsunami scenario when it was an abstraction, why do they avoid it now that it’s becoming an actuality? While it’s bad for journalists to be an alarmist, it’s far worse for them to not report an alarming possibility, or for his editors to bury their reports. While Internet investigators are ridiculed as conspiracy theorists, in the case of a possible mega-tsunami — one that could liquidate millions of lives — there is plainly a conspiracy of silence. After Fukushima, how can a journalist wave off a tsunami story?
The extracts below, from present to past, document the danger. They are from sources that differ about much, but agree about the danger of a mega-tsunami.
Scientists from several countries have cautioned that should a volcanic eruption occur and part of the Hierro land mass sluff off into the ocean, a mega-tsunami could erupt and have a dramatic effect on the Eastern shores of the United States, where people within a 20-mile radius of the coast would have about eight hours to evacuate. — The Lone Star Iconoclast, yesterday
“Volcanic activity on La Palma – the most tectonically active of the Canary Islands – could trigger a mega-tsunami that would cause extensive damage all down the Atlantic Coast of the U.S., the Caribbean, Western Europe, West Africa and the east coast of South America.” — Current TV, October 4, 2011
“You won’t find this on the front page of the New York Times or anywhere on CNN, but if you have your ear to the tracks you might’ve heard rumblings from far off in the North Atlantic Ocean where, near the Canary Islands, there have been an incredible number of earthquakes recorded in the past week — 620 and counting, 400 in just four days!” — Your Weather Blog, July 28, 2011
“‘We have lots of money, resources, and new weapons that no one knows about. With them we will destroy any part of the planet within 15 minutes. Not an explosion, not a ray burst, not some kind of laser, not lightning, but a quiet and peaceful weapon. Whole continents will be put to sleep forever.’” — The Nation, May 18, 2011
“The incidence of historic worldwide earthquakes is increasing, especially since 2002. Whether earthquakes are tied to global warming, or to the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), which some scientists say is utilized by the military to cause droughts and hurricanes, the advent of the increased numbers is worthy of concern and of additional study.” — The Lone Star Iconoclast, July 24, 2006
“On the evening of July 28, 2005, the Southeast Texas sky erupts into a hurricane of fire, dozens of miles high and wide, over the blazing BP refinery in Texas City. Captain May’s voice reveals his fear of a BP nuclear attack. His earlier national warnings of a Houston false flag have been validated. The tension builds when a helicopter begins circling his position. At the end of the interview, he calls for a military coup d’etat counterattack.” — Cloak and Dagger, July 28, 2005
“‘Others are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.'” — Department of Defense transcript, April 28, 1997
