    We just had another one 3.6 about one mile from Berkeley. That's three in a week on the Hayward fault. The Hayward fault is the one the geologist have been warning us about. If it goes it will be big, killing many and causing billions of dollars in damage.

    I am a native Californian and don't spend a lot of time thinking about earthquakes; however, I think I shall spend some time today adding water and more batteries to the emergency supplies. This much activity is very unusual.

    Trying to equate surface effects with triggering seismic events miles deep is ridiculous. The Great Lakes region is STILL isostatically rebounding from the last continental ice sheet.
    The whole area is rising at the rate of about an inch per year. Where are all those earthquakes?

    This is yet another of that incompetent correlation equals causation crap that has gotten the climatologists in so much hot water.
