  • A Slow Emergency and a Sudden Slump

    UC Berkeley | May 7, 2018 | Berkeley Seismology Lab
    This type of motion is not new, it actually has a name. It is called the Hilina Slump. During the last strong quake in Hawaii, a magnitude 7.2 event on November 29th 1975, this slump slid toward the ocean by about 11 feet. Another temblor, the 7.9 magnitude Hawaii quake of 1868 caused the slump to move as well, resulting in a tsunami with a maximum wave height of about 60 feet. With all respect for the people who are being affected by the current eruption, the way Kilauea lava comes to the surface is rather tame. It crawls slowly...
  • Hawaii volcano: Why Kilauea's lava is causing eerie blue flames

    The U.S. Geological Survey has posted footage of the strange blue burning flames on its Facebook and Twitter accounts. Caused by methane gas, the flames were observed on cracks in a street in Hawaii’s Leilani Estates Subdivision on May 22. “When hot lava buries plants and shrubs, methane gas is produced as a byproduct of burning vegetation,” explains the USGS, in the post. “Methane gas can seep into subsurface voids and explode when heated, or as shown in this video, emerge from cracks in the ground several feet away from the lava. When ignited, the methane produces a blue flame.”...
  • Volcano’s Lava Flows Into Power Plant, Sparking Fears Of Deadly Gas Release

    Emergency workers in Hawaii are racing to protect a geothermal power plant near the Kilauea Volcano. Slow-moving molten rock entered the site and is just a few hundred yards from the wells. There is concern lava could trigger the release of deadly hydrogen sulfate gas... Lava continued its steady advance toward the Puna Geothermal Venture Plant before stalling late Monday. The facility is shut down, but the wells there still present a risk if overrun with the molten rock. “It’s not easy to predict where it’s going to go, and when it’s going to get there,” said Tom Travis, of...

  • Bombshell: ‘Washington Post’ Confirms Hillary Clinton Started the Birther Movement

    Breitbart ^ | September 26, 2015 | By John Nolte
    New analysis from the Washington Post removes any doubt that the anti-Obama Birther movement was started in 2007 and 2008 by Hillary Clinton, her campaign, and her Democrat supporters. As Breitbart News reported earlier this month, other left-wing media outlets, like Politico and the Guardian, had already traced the Birther movement back to Democrats and Ms. Clinton. Using his wayback machine on Wednesday, the Post’s David Weigel took an in-depth look at the origins of the false rumors that President Obama is a practicing Muslim who was not born in a America. Weigel’s reporting contains the final pieces of a...

    Donald Trump is right: It was the Hillary Clinton campaign that spread the rumor in 2008 that Obama was not born in America and, therefore, might not be eligible to serve as President. Hillary sent out her Chief Goon to take care of this high-priority matter. It was Sidney Blumenthal who spread the rumor. Remember him? The one who sent hundreds of wacky long-winded memos about Benghazi and the Middle East to the Secretary of State, including several that contained classified material. Well, before Sid was a fake spy and clandestine adviser to Hillary, he was her chief enforcer. Blumenthal...

    Governor Mike Pence appeared on ABC’s This Week on Sunday, where their Presidential Debate Moderator Martha Raddatz relentlessly grilled him about Donald Trump’s involvement in the “Birther movement.” Under pressure, Pence defended himself by reminding Raddatz that members of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign leaned on questions of citizenship to take jabs at then Senator Barack Obama. But Raddatz wasn’t having any of it, “I want to talk about the facts. What's the proof of that?” At first, Pence tried to stick to the issues by noting that the American people don’t care about the birther issue and are not talking...

    Make no mistake, if you or I robbed a bank would we keep the money if caught? In a word, NO! For CNN to say it is a “moot point” whether or not Barack Hussein Obama AKA Barry Soetoro / Soebarkah is eligible to hold the Office of the United States Presidency is a travesty to the nation! CNN is fully aware that an official law enforcement investigation spanning more than 23 months by the duly authorized Cold Case Posse for the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department in Arizona led by the Constitutionally elected Sheriff Joe Arpaio has determined that the...

    Surfacing again this week in cyberspace is the purported, Columbia University identification card of “Foreign Student Barry Soetoro.” Upon enlargement, the following info appears to the upper left of a photo which is clearly that of America’s 44th president: Barack Hussein Obama: 6009620 1 1054355, along with what looks like a regal crown imprint in the paper itself. The double letters AA with 81 also appear to the left of the Obama photo. A bar code is right above the name “Foreign Student.” Unfortunately, the link to this story is being taken down “left and right,” according to a number...

    Maui County police says the late state health director Loretta Fuddy died due to cardiac arrhythmia as a result of stress after a Makani Kai Air plane crashed off of Molokai last month. An arrhythmia is a problem with the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat. Fuddy's death has been ruled as accidental. On Dec. 11, the plane lost power off of Kalaupapa. Nine people were on board the plane including Fuddy. The pilot and seven other passengers survived the crash. The pilot and a passenger who swam to shore have said Fuddy appeared fine while bobbing in the water...

    A month after a small plane crash in Hawaii, a surviving passenger shows GoPro footage and even a selfie taken during the ordeal. Would you have done the same? Ferdinand Puentes was one of nine passengers in a 2002 Cessna Grand Caravan which suddenly suffered engine failure off Kalaupapa, Molokai in Hawaii last month. As he heard the engine fail and saw the plane heading for the water, one of his first instincts was to turn on his GoPro camera and film what might have been his own demise. As KHON-TV reports, Puentes knew the danger he was in, yet...

    (HONOLULU) -- The dramatic images of a small plane crash in December that killed one person off the coast of Hawaii were made public Thursday. A passenger was recording video as the Dec. 11 crash occurred. In the images, the Makani Kai Air’s 2002 Cessna Grand Caravan turboprop can be seen about to hit the water. It descends straight down to the ocean and crashes on the surface. In the video, the passengers can be seen making their way out calmly. They clutched the wing to stay afloat. In two groups, they floated for an hour in choppy waters until...

    Loretta Fuddy, the Hawaiian official responsible for the release of Barack Obama’s birth certificate, died last week in a small-plane crash off the island of Molokai. The plane crashed was enough to raise suspicions among those who follow these things. That she was the only one of the nine onboard to die heightened those suspicions, especially given the conflicting accounts of how she alone failed to survive. More than a few people have asked my opinion on this given that I wrote a book on a case with some parallels – the death of then-Commerce Secretary Ron Brown in an...

    A medical professional who verified Obama's birth certificate with 8 other people was in a plane crash into the ocean in 2013. Donald Trump tweeted the following about this at the time. "How amazing, the State Health Director who verified copies of Obama’s “birth certificate” died in plane crash today. All others lived" One of the other passengers was wearing a go cam video camera during the entire time. A news station played a few seconds of this video. In the video, you can see Ms.Fuddy, the health director safe and alive holding onto an airplane wing. Then it appears...

    When Hawaii Health Director Loretta Fuddy, a central player in the production of Barack Obama’s controversial birthcertificate died in a mysterious plane crash, those of us who are convinced that the birth certificate was forged, suspected foul play. Of course we were belittled. A month later, the cause of her death was released, cardiac arrhythmia. Now, a recently discovered report from a Maui Police Detective reveals that Loretta Fuddy’s heart wasn’t the problem after all. She drowned…. with her life jacket on.

    It's not only a possibility in the Hawaiian Islands. A chain of about 40 volcanos runs along the West Coast between Canada and Mexico and all have the potential to become active. (The potential for each peak is outlined in the gallery above.) They've all erupted at least once in the past 10,000 years and they all have a supply of magma under them.
