Has anyone from Arkansas noticed their animals acting strange or running away? It is common when earthquakes are imminent for them to act awry.

Earlier on another thread about this I mentioned the quartz, but that theory would only work if the other areas with the die offs had high quart as well.

Op you did a very good job of explaining it to us, keep up the good work.

Volcano under Hot Springs....that's my call.....

can you imagine that and the New Madrid going at the same time? Shit...



OK, I get it.......so, would someone explain what the likely scenerio would be. I don't live THAT far from there, So. IL.

New Madrid Fault
The 150-mile (240 km) long fault system, which extends into five states, stretches southward from Cairo, Illinois; through Hayti, Caruthersville and New Madrid in Missouri; through Blytheville into Marked Tree in Arkansas. It also covers a part of West Tennessee, near Reelfoot Lake, extending southeast into Dyersburg.

Most of the seismicity is located between 3 and 15 miles (4.8 and 24 km) beneath the Earth's surface.
[edit] Earthquake history

The zone had four of the largest North American earthquakes in recorded history, with moment magnitudes estimated to be as large as 8.0, all occurring within a three-month period between December 1811 and February 1812. Many of the published accounts describe the cumulative effects of all the earthquakes (known as the New Madrid Sequence); thus finding the individual effects of each quake can be difficult. Magnitude estimates and epicenters are based on interpretations of historical accounts and may vary.

Re: ALERT!!! This is How the Mass Bird Death Happened - The New Madrid Fault may produce MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE soon!
Since birds are dropping in other parts of the World I have to change my opinion regarding these birds deaths.

Now, this is my revised theory.

Birds use the magnetic field to navigate. It isn't some kind of heads up display like a GPS, ect. They probably sense simple direction like North versus South.

Or they can feel slight electrostatic charges as they move through a magnetic field.

Either way it appears the anomaly of deaths is more Global then once thought.

Now it appears the birds were knocked unconscious due to the magnetic field shifting. Or magnetic lines are snapping as the fields shift. I'm not talking about a full reversal. I am thinking about chaotic shifts before the reversal.

To a bird the shifting magnetic field might give them a serious sense of Vertigo.

Or their brains are capable of measuring slight electric charge potentials due to motion through a magnetic field. If this is the case then the birds are being electrocuted in the brain.




For what ever reasons now, this is getting serious. Should the anomaly increase our electronics could begin to suffer.

In fact, one should attempt to measure voltage potential from a copper wire and see if any shifting is causing fluctuations in voltage across the wire.

I believe as well that something is forth coming in mother nature where and when I am not sure. But I feel it , birds and fish are dying by the millions and thousands if you look today you will see that in maryland, and sweden and another country just had 2 million fish die and birds die.. check those areas for earthquake activity.
I do not believe 2 million of anything died at the same time from starvation as they stated.. 100 tons of fish show up dead in brazil... I found this here stating this past weeks upheavals of mother nature..

Weird thought I just had.

I went out to eat for lunch yesterday. I spent the whole hour watching a little bird trying to get inside the back door.

He kept trying to rest on the glass pane, and never gave up.

Just now while on the computer another little bird just flew up to my window and is trying to get inside.

Why do the birds want inside? Makes me wonder.

We had a small sparrow slam into the window New Year's day. Luckily after about an hour of me holding him he came to and was able to fly off. Sunday at work a small bird flew into a window, he wasn't so lucky. Wednesday, while looking out my window, I noticed a flock of cardinals. I have never seen them flock before. Usually we have a male and a female, sometimes two males. I counted at least eight cardinals in a 30X30 area. Seemed odd.

Just started a hen house early last Spring. We have ten hens,one rooster, three turkey hens, and a tom. We are still getting a massive amount of eggs. Average is about eight chicken eggs and one turkey egg. I thought laying slowed down in the winter?

hey im new here. :)

anyways, what you say sounds interesting. i just heard about the birds just today, i am a little slow on the news. when i heard fireworks etc as the cause i simply just could not believe it. it doesnt seem that simple of an answer to be right. you mentioned the earth quakes...i think we are in for some soon. i live in bay area california and i swear i felt a very small shake in my room, i felt my bed shake and heard my wall creaking. it only last about 3 seconds. but i talked to everyone in my house and they did not feel anything. also my mother has been saying one of our dogs has been acting scared, which she has. she has been walking around slowly with her head low, and has been very cautious the past 2-3 days. our other dog has been very flighty and nervous, which is normal with her but this is double the norm. my mother and father i know are not prepared for earthquakes, but i have felt for awhile now that a big one is coming. i know this is somewhat off topic, but im worried. should i be?

I live in dyersburg tn. We had a 3.4 hit in 2009. I am in the new madrid zone half an hour from reelfoot. We are overdue for a megaquake. Remember the animals before the tsunami. Animals have a six sense or intuition with mother nature. I will be updating this blog with ground zero information. I have definitly noticed an unusual amount of roadkill animals. Damn near two on every road. Rabbits coyotes and other wild game has been in our paper for entering our cities which is very unusual.

I saw a huge flock of birds going around in a circle.

During our recent earthquake here in San Jose, CA 01/07/2011. I saw a huge flock of birds, crows, seaguls, jays and sparows going around in a huge circle just before the quake hit. It was kinda freaky as I have never seen those type of birds flock together let alone in a huge circle.

Just my two cents on the subject.

SO2 = Rotten egg odor, sulphur dioxide is lethal and makes me think of the "canary in a coal mine."

CO2 = Carbon dioxide is lethal and makes me think of "Limnic Overturn" volcanism that occurs in lakes/oceans killing (aquatic life, land mammals, people) all that comes into contact within a range of sixteen miles+ on land near lakes.

I'd provide a link to wikipedia for more credibility to my statement(s), but I'm lazy like that.

The piezoelectricity remark piqued my interest and has provided me with more knowledge about nature. I believe the combination of SO2 release and piezoelectricity could work hand-in-hand to the bird die-offs.

I believe the release of CO2 or "Limnic Overturn" is the main culprit in global aquatic die-off. Again, Google "Limnic Overturn Volcanism" and you'll be led to links on African lakes that have experienced Limnic Overturn and is now wide-spread throughout the oceans and waterways of our planet, but is rarely reported correctly through lame stream media sources.

I hope this helps in your search for truth as we continue to connect the global cataclysmic dots.

Hmmmmmm, would these gases come from volcanic activity etc, maybe magma rising to the surface worldwide??? A lot of people, including myself and Ninrez have said that magma is seriously moving a lot under our feet, could they cause gasses to be released, fishes to die, birds to get knocked out, make activity high in volcanoes, more intense EQS been happening last few weeks, New volcanic Island forming, El Hierro having strange activity, Yellowstone showing weird activity, people feeling tired,sick & having balance problems, weather patterns messed up (Late winter) etc etc, some dots for you.........EDIT: Shit, there is this thread too:

Thread: Massive Methane LEAK in Arctic sea - the End is Nigh


How about more......Think on these...

If you have a gas stove or burner, turn it on (without igniting it)and look through where the gas is releasing, what do you see???? You see the gas distorting the view, like shaky waves...... What have we been seeing in the skys??? Haziness.....the sky has been hazy alot and looks misty. The moon at night appears to have an Halo, this maybe could be gases in the air distorting the light coming from the moon...

Now, they have been chem trailing for years haven't they....What if they are either spraying that shit to dissolve the gases being released OR what if they are constantly chem trailing to keep the gas trapped high up so it doesn't drop back down..........

This is just a thought as well, people have been complaining on here about the sky looking a red/orange/pink color lately, could the gasses be causing the sky to look like this when the sun and moon light is shining on the gases???
The gasses sort of distorting the light maybe...........I don't know, just throwing ideas out there....

Carbon Dioxide (CO2)


Carbon dioxide (chemical formula CO2) is a naturally occurring chemical compound composed of two oxygen atoms covalently bonded to a single carbon atom. It is a gas at standard temperature and pressure and exists in Earth's atmosphere in this state, as a trace gas at a concentration of 0.039% by volume.

Carbon dioxide also is a by-product of combustion; is emitted from volcanoes, hot springs, and geysers; and is freed from carbonate rocks by dissolution.

As of November 2011, carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere is at a concentration of 390 ppm by volume.[3] Atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide fluctuate slightly with the change of the seasons.

Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas as it transmits visible light but absorbs strongly in the infrared and near-infrared, before slowly re-emitting the infrared at the same wavelength as what was absorbed.

Before the advent of human-caused release of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, concentrations tended to increase with increasing global temperatures, acting as a positive feedback for changes induced by other processes such as orbital cycles.

Concentrations of 7% to 10% cause dizziness, headache, visual and hearing dysfunction, and unconsciousness within a few minutes to an hour.

Up to 40% of the gas emitted by some volcanoes during subaerial eruptions is carbon dioxide.[38] It is estimated that volcanoes release about 130–230 million tonnes (145–255 million tons) of CO2 into the atmosphere each year. Carbon dioxide is also produced by hot springs such as those at the Bossoleto site near Rapolano Terme in Tuscany, Italy. Here, in a bowl-shaped depression of about 100 m diameter, local concentrations of CO2 rise to above 75% overnight, sufficient to kill insects and small animals, but it warms rapidly when sunlit and the gas is dispersed by convection during the day.[39] Locally high concentrations of CO2, produced by disturbance of deep lake water saturated with CO2 are thought to have caused 37 fatalities at Lake Monoun, Cameroon in 1984 and 1700 casualties at Lake Nyos, Cameroon in 1986.[40] Emissions of CO2 by human activities are currently more than 130 times greater than the quantity emitted by volcanoes, amounting to about 27 billion tonnes per year

Carbon dioxide disolves in the ocean to form carbonic acid (H2CO3), bicarbonate (HCO3-) and carbonate (CO32-), and there is about fifty times as much carbon dissolved in the sea water of the oceans as exists in the atmosphere. The oceans act as an enormous carbon sink, and have taken up about a third of CO2 emitted by human activity.[42]

As the concentration of carbon dioxide increases in the atmosphere, the increased uptake of carbon dioxide into the oceans is causing a measureable decrease in the pH of the oceans which is referred to as ocean acidification. Although the natural absorption of CO2 by the world's oceans helps mitigate the climatic effects of anthropogenic emissions of CO2, results in a decrease in the pH of the oceans. This reduciton in pH impacts the biological systems in the oceans, primarily oceanic calcifying organisms. These impacts span the food chain from autotrophs to heterotrophs and include organisms such as coccolithophores, corals, foraminifera, echinoderms, crustaceans and molluscs. Under normal conditions, calcite and aragonite are stable in surface waters since the carbonate ion is at supersaturating concentrations. However, as ocean pH falls, so does the concentration of this ion, and when carbonate becomes undersaturated, structures made of calcium carbonate are vulnerable to dissolution. Even if there is no change in the rate of calcification, therefore, the rate of dissolution of calcareous material increases

Great thread! This is why I come to GLP, to hear new ideas that I haven't thought of yet, give them some thought, propose my own ideas etc. I have loved science, thinking, etc. since I was a little kid and appreciate all of your interesting comments.

Is there any chance a big EQ in that general location could have a causal relationship with any kind of bad situation around the caldera in yellowstone, etc.?

I'm tired and I would do the research but I'm interested in what others have to say about it.
