How CERN’s Large Hadron Collider Could Be Linked to Recent Earthquakes

In just the past two months, there have been thirteen earthquakes over 6.0 on the Richter scale. Some of these quakes were incredibly intense, namely that which occurred in Nepal that ranged from magnitude 6.6-7.8. The damage was enormous and the loss of life was in the thousands.  And most recently, a magnitude 7.1-7.5 rattled the island shores of Papa New Guinea, but thankfully has not caused nearly as much damage or injury.

What I find curious about all of this recent tectonic activity is that CERN in Geneva, Switzerland (Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire, [French acronym]) or perhaps more commonly known in the States as The European Organization for Nuclear Research, has recently fired up its Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particle accelerator again, just before this unusual stretch of high-magnitude earthquakes began.

The LHC is the most powerful and largest particle accelerator on the planet and while the majority of the world of science considers it invaluable to making further discoveries about our universe, some scientists including Stephen Hawking are offering fair warning of the damage it can cause to the planet, humanity and even the time-space continuum. Read more on Hawking’s concerns about CERN here: https://rt.com/news/185876-universe-elimination-higgs-boson/

Just months after the discovery of the Higgs boson or the so-called “God Particle” in July 2012, CERN completed its first continuous run of the LHC which recorded around 5 billion collisions at an energy amount of 8 TeV (Tevatron scale). Only 400 of these collisions produced results even remotely compatible with that of the Higgs boson. (Source: https://press.web.cern.ch/press-releases/2012/12/first-lhc-protons-run-ends-new-milestone ).

Fast-forward to present day and they’ve nearly doubled the amount of collision energy to 13 TeV. The plan is to have the LHC do another run for 3 years continuously and this time CERN announced that their focus is to “capture dark matter” and on “the discovery of other dimensions”. While I am all for raising the awareness about our place in the universe and of course the working of quantum space dynamics to better grasp an understanding of ourselves, I feel that it should not come at the expense of Mother Earth or that we should go into this kind of science biting at our own tails.

Simply put, the Large Hadron Collider creates the biggest magnetic field on the entire planet, second to that created by the planet itself! It may seem only speculation linking the LHC to seismic activity, but we must take into consideration how magnetism on this grand of a scale affects the layers of the Earth.

Each time CERN forces a collision, the residue energy causes massive magnetic vibrations within the Earth, therefore in my opinion it would be naïve to not at least consider that this is not somehow contributing to all of the recent quakes. And these recent “coincidences” are not the first, either.  In 2010, mass LHC activity at CERN coincided with the 8.8 Chilean earthquake­, which was the 6th worst in our history.

I stand behind scientific exploration and furthering our knowledge of the workings of the Universe, absolutely. In fact, I live and breathe this stuff! I am what you would call a cross between a Quantum Physics nerd and a yoga-loving Jedi in training. But the fact remains that I hold true to the feeling in my gut that it’s more than mere coincidence in the timing of these earthquakes and the recent power up of the LHC. And I just hope that our thirst for knowing how small we can go into particles, doesn’t leave us in a self-created black hole somewhere on the outer edges of space …just saying. 🙂

(Video) Moment Earthquake Struck Nepal — Devastation in Kathmandhu & Mt Everest

A major earthquake of an estimated 7.9 magnitude has hit Nepal today resulting in massive devastation to the main city of Kathmandhu, the destruction of sacred sites, and avalanches covering spring climbers on Mount Everest.

The BBC video above gives a good summary of how the earthquake affected Nepal. According to experts (quoted by the BBC), the quake was geologically “shallow” which made it even more devastating. The city center was hit badly. This video shows images of people rescuing one man who’s entire body was buried in rumble.

Sacred buildings have fallen. Most notably, historic Dharara Tower of Kathmandu was basically reduced to rumble.

Also, since we are now in the first part of climbing season, many campers were also on Mount Everest, were several avalanches occurred. BBC reports reports on this video that part of the base camp was covered from an avalanche. This story from CBC News reports that their have been casualties on Everest, and contains comments from climbers who experienced the quake.

What exactly does 7.9 magnitude mean? For a clear explanation and visual demonstration, watch this short video.  Check out inspirational photos of people helping people in the wake of the  Nepal Earthquake.

Barsha Pump Provides Irrigation Water Without Needing Fuel

| Gizmag

Barsha pumpClimate-KIC, a European-union climate innovation initiative, recently selected a jury of entrepreneurs, financiers and business people to award funding to what they felt were Europe’s best clean-tech innovations of 2014. Taking first place was Dutch startup aQysta, a Delft University of Technology spin-off company that manufactures what’s known as the Barsha irrigation pump. It can reportedly boost crop yields in developing nations by up to five times, yet requires no fuel or electricity to operate.

Although the Barsha pump (Nepalese for “rain pump”) is a new product, it’s based on a very old design – it has its origins in ancient Egypt.

The pump itself is essentially a water wheel on a floating platform, that’s moored in a nearby flowing river. The moving water rotates the wheel, that in turn utilizes a spiral mechanism to compress air. That air drives water through an attached hose and up to the fields.

The pump claimed to be capable of pumping water up to a height of 25 meters (82 ft), at a ...

It’s claimed to be capable of pumping water up to a height of 25 meters (82 ft), at a maximum rate of one liter (0.26 US gal) per second. According to its designers, it has zero operating costs, only one moving part, can be built from locally-available materials, and should provide a return on investment within one year of use – for diesel-powered pumps, they claim that the figure is closer to 10 years.
