40+ Volcanoes Are Erupting Right Now,

And 34 Of Them Are Along The Ring Of

May 16, 2015 - (Economic Collapse) You may not have noticed, but our planet is
becoming increasingly unstable. According to Volcano Discovery, 40 volcanoes around
the globe are erupting right now, and only 6 of them are not along the Ring of Fire. If that
sounds like a very high number to you, that is because it is a very high number. As I have
written about previously, there were a total of 3,542 volcanic eruptions during the entire
20th century. When you divide that number by 100, that gives you an average of about 35
volcanic eruptions per year. So the number of volcanoes that are erupting right now is
well above the 20th centurys average for an entire calendar year. And of course we are
witnessing a tremendous amount of earthquake activity as well. Nepal was just hit by the
worst earthquake that it had seen in 80 years, and scientists are telling us that the
Himalayas actually dropped by an astounding 3 feet as a result of that one earthquake.
How much more does our planet have to shake before people start paying attention?

Of course the things that we have been seeing lately are part of a much larger
long-term trend. Seismic activity appears to have been getting stronger over

the past few decades, and now things really seem to be accelerating. The
following is how one news sourcerecently summarized what we have been
If it seems like earthquakes and erupting volcanoes are happening more
frequently, thats because they are. Looking at global magnitude six (M6)
or greater from 1980 to 1989 there was an average of 108.5 earthquakes per
year, from 2000 to 2009 the planet averaged 160.9 earthquakes per year: that
is a 38.9% increase of M6+ earthquakes in recent years. Unrest also seems
to be growing among the worlds super-volcanoes. Iceland (which is home to
some of the most dangerous volcanoes on the planet), Santorini in Greece,
Uturuncu in Bolivia, the Yellowstone and Long Valley calderas in the U.S.,
Laguna del Maule in Chile, Italys Campi Flegrei almost all of the
worlds active super-volcanic systems are now exhibiting some signs of
inflation, an early indication that pressure is building in these volcanic
But of course most Americans are never going to care about any of this until
it starts affecting them personally.
Well, perhaps they should start paying attention to the warning signs. In
recent weeks we have seen significant earthquakes in Michigan, Texas,
Mississippi, California, Idaho And Washington. In addition, it is being
reported that pressure is building in dormant volcanoes in Arizona and
California. Just because we have not had a killer earthquake or a large
volcanic eruption in the U.S. in recent years does not mean that it will always
be that way. Right now the entire planet appears to be waking up, and this
especially seems to be true of the Ring of Fire.
If you are not familiar with the Ring of Fire, just imagine a giant ring that
runs around the outer perimeter of the Pacific Ocean. Approximately 90
percent of all earthquakes and approximately 75 percent of all volcanic
eruptions occur within this area, and the entire west coast of North America
is considered to be part of the Ring of Fire.
For so long, the west coast has been incredibly blessed not to have
experienced a major seismic event. But scientists tell us that it is only
a matter of time.
And right now, just about every other part of the Ring of Fire is shaking

For example, a magnitude 6.8 earthquake just hit Japan on Wednesday

One Japanese expert is warning that Japan might have entered an era of great
earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, and considering the immense
devastation that the great earthquake and tsunami of 2011 caused, that is
a very sobering assessment.
Meanwhile, a series of very strong earthquakes have struck Papua New Guinea
recently as well. The following comes from the Washington Post
Once again, just because things have always been a certain way does not mean
that they will always be that way.
As Americans, we are not accustomed to being concerned about major
earthquakes and massive volcanic eruptions, but that could soon change in
a big way.
The truth is that our planet and our sun are changing in ways that are
unpredictable and that our scientists dont completely understand.
For example, a recent LiveScience article discussed the fact that scientists
are deeply puzzled by the fact that the magnetic field of our planet is getting
weaker 10 times faster than previously believed
Scientists already know that magnetic north shifts. Once every few hundred
thousand years the magnetic poles flip so that a compass would point south
instead of north. While changes in magnetic field strength are part of this
normal flipping cycle, data from Swarm have shown the field is starting to
weaken faster than in the past. Previously, researchers estimated the field
was weakening about 5 percent per century, but the new data revealed the field
is actually weakening at 5 percent per decade, or 10 times faster than thought.
As such, rather than the full flip occurring in about 2,000 years, as was
predicted, the new data suggest it could happen sooner.
