Earthquake Prediction

Show Archive
Date: Friday - November 21, 2003
Host: George Noory
Guests: Open Lines, Jim Berkland

The first half of the program featured geologist and earthquake predictor Jim Berkland who said we are just about to enter a "seismic window," i.e. a period of greater likelihood for quake activity. Correlated with the start of the new moon, he said a 140 mile range from both San Francisco and Los Angeles, as well as the Oregon and Washington coasts would be particularly susceptible.

Discussing his study of increased missing animal reports that are made before major quakes, Berkland recommended the book When the Snakes Awake by Helmut Tributsch, that also draws a connection between animal behavior and quake prediction. There is evidence that major solar flares could be another correlate, and Berkland noted some large quakes had occurred within a short space of time after X-class activity on the sun. Eclipses, such as the one next week, are also associated with increased earthquake risk he said.

Open Lines

The second half of Friday's show featured Open Lines with a special topic line set up for stories of the "Boogey" man, the fearful creature that is often imagined by children. One caller described a set of entities that appear when he is particularly tired. The incidents, he said, always started with a small being that seemed to be looking over his right shoulder. Another person shared his tale of the "Wah Wah" man, a scary skeletal thing that would come dancing towards him.
