    "The tide comes in, the tide goes out - never a miscommunication." Sorry I couldn't help myself.

    But rattler, on March 19th the moon is going to be the closest it has been in 20 years. That's the difference that people are murmuring about. It's not just a high tide, or full moon. It's the Lunar Perigree conjoined with a full moon as well as being very close to the equinox. On top of that there has been some hefty Sun activity, with a couple sizeable flares being shot out recently. The sun's activity is more or less unrelated, I think.

    Scientists do hesitate to say that the moon's qualities will affect any sort of natural disasters that might occur, but this quake was huge... and the Indonesian quake in 2005 correlated with a potent moon as well.

    The pressure you put on a gas pedal hardly compares to the force of a moving vehicle, but that's what triggers a car to move. With the right equilibria, it only takes a tiny perturbance to cause massive upheavals. It might not be likely, but it's totally plausible.

    That being said, it's also not provable and there is very little evidence suggesting the powerful moons cause natural disasters. But as a superstitious being who looks at the sky and is afraid of Earthquakes I am certainly ready to run outside or hide under my desk.

    If there were ever an earthquake of any significant magnitude where I am, the whole place would be in ruins! The buildings here are all on stilts and hillsides or even on top of the ocean.

    actually as i said above it does affect it a measurable amount......its just not a big enough to matter.....if the Supermoon triples the activity its still only a three percent increase over normal......would be enough to be noticed by those that are studying the world as a whole to see when they crunch the numbers but not enough for the average person to notice......the Ring of Fire aint gonna go ape**** just cause the moons pull is a lil stronger.....

    I think you might be making a bit of a false dichotomy there - nobody is saying that it's going to make seismic activity go crazy. Just that it could precipitate some relatively unusual events. Sometimes all that is needed is a little extra nudge.

    Now it seems one of thier nuclear power plants is having cooling issues. Man I sure hope they can get that under control. That would be horrific if there were a Chernobyl type event on that tiny island.

    Correction. 2 power plants! Oh my!

    Ugh, so it's true after all. It was mentioned briefly at the top of a news story I read but they gave no other details. I was hoping they were just being sensationalist.

    I sure hope it's is a case of yellow journalism.
