    shocked2 A Major Earthquake in North America Imminent (w/video)

    Aprediction. But from a person that knows what he is talking about.

    NEIL CAVUTO, HOST: Boy oh, boy, just what Japan does not need. An imminent earthquake warning just issued for several regions of the country. On edge there, on edge here, because it really didn't start with Japan. Take a look at what experts are increasingly calling the so-called ring of fire that is encircling the entire Pacific Ocean. You remember Chile's massive earthquake about a year ago. Then we had that big one in New Zealand just last month. Then of course Japan.

    This is pretty worrying. We'll see, I guess. Everybody be on the lookout for news of beached whales in CA.

    This guy sounds like a complete moron. Most of the **** he's talking about is pure pseudoscience and superstition.

    If this clockwise trend continues, my next guest says North America looks to be on tap next. Don't laugh.
    I will laugh. No serious seismologist thinks there is a "clockwise trend" in earthquakes. It isn't that simple.

    Geologist Jim Berkland is worried. When he worries, you should worry too. Jim accurately predicted, get this, the 1989 so-called World Series earthquake four days before it shook the San Francisco Bay Area.
    Mm-hmm. And I wonder how many earthquakes he's predicted that DIDN'T happen. After all, if I run my mouth about some sort of calamity every day, I'm bound to eventually get one right by pure chance.

    Well, if it was, one in the northwest, in the Cascadia Trench, like we had in 1700, that would be a nine magnitude quake. I'm not predicting that. But I'm saying we just had a massive fish kill. Maybe a million fish died in Redondo Beach. They had a massive fish sweep in Mexico. We just had a bunch of whales come in close to San Diego.

    Changes -- changes in the magnetic field that off then precede larger earthquakes. Most animals have the mineral magnetite in their bodies, including people. But it causes homing pigeons to enable them to get home. Just before big quakes, they often can't get home. There is the delay factor. So we look for those kinds of things.
    Pure superstition. There is absolutely no scientific evidence that animals behave strangely in the days before an earthquake, just anecdotes. And whatever seismic sensitivity animals might have that people don't, it's nothing compared to the kind of seismic sensitivity that seismometers have.

    I used to just scoff at these kinds of things, because I was a mainstream geologist until I found out that earthquakes are fitting a pattern.
    At least he admits that he's a nut. Don't hold your breath for that California earthquake, and if by coincidence it does happen, it's just that: Coincidence.

    Don't worry, you can't freak out 24/7. It can happen any time and get you with "your pants down" - sleeping in bed, driving on a collapsing bridge, debating politics in a tall office building, etc. Say you prayer and be prepared to depart this world God collects you.

    As soon as he said "what scientists are now calling the ring of fire..." I scoffed and turned it off. That area has been known as the ring of fire for ages, I learned about it in elementary school. If you can't keep the facts straight, get off the air and stop calling yourself a journalist.

    That would be a great theory, if the Ring of Fire went between Chile and New Zealand.
