Dams induce earthquakes which seem to have caused the pandemic flu of 1918 to 1919. The response of influenza is significantly similar(See Figure 3 for the deterministic relationship) to that of seismic moments as Figure ACh68 reveals:
The mean locations of the quakes, the hotspots(thermal readings from satellites) and of the swine flu eruption locations are interchangeable. See the following Table QHFLULOCS2009(Look at the Chi-sq distribution):Note that the mean hotspot for 26th April 2009 is next to Mexico City where the largest number of flu cases were registered.
The corresponding graphical representation follows:
There are 22755 earthquakes on this map. The period is 1.1.1973 to 20.04.2009. The approximate area of this coverage is 1958000 km^2.There is an earthquake for every 86 km^2 during this period. The corresponding hotspots as read on 16/04/2009 from satellites(Global Infrared Hotspots) for 0-24 hours are shown below:
Even for a single day the hotspots are a faithful reproduction of the previous earthquake locations. History repeats itself. As developed above the flu pandemic of 1918-1919 faithfully reproduced the earthquake seismic moments between 1900 to 1919 as excess death rates. Similarly if the present swine flu is not contained globally it will faithfully reproduce the Maximum Seismic Moments of the historical earthquakes from 1900 on(the dam era). But the death toll would be an order of magnitude higher(500 million to a billion). The figure,DEC65:1900-2007 below, shows the relationship between the annual mean seismic moment and the annual dam capacity. We have seen above how the 1918-1919 flu pandemic death rate is a faithful reproduction of the shape of the earthquake curve. The genesis of the shapes lie in the global electrical load demand which correlates deterministically with the seismic moments and the flu death rates. The load demands are met head on synchronously by the hydrogenerators which draw the water from the dams in surge waves which create surges of bending stresses on the faults worldwide resulting in the very high frequency of earthquakes compared to the pre-dam era as shown in this article. The earthquakes and the pandemic flu are thus parallel responses with the pandemic lagging the earthquakes by a time period determined by the ecological relations between the multifarious non-homogenic participants. The persistent surges of heating up of the earth by the electric load demand (and other consumptive water uses) and the surges of filling up of the reservoirs during the rains cause a number of parallel responses apart from earthquakes and pandemics. They are floods, fires, volcanoes, landslides, ice melts, sea level rises which synergistically alter the state in which the earth and its inhabitants have to readjust themselves, in ecological and geological instants instead of at rates they were used to on much larger time frames. As shown above(Figures 1 and 2), the frequency of the earthquakes has increased by three orders of magnitude in the modern era compared to the pre-dam era and is increasing further as the number of dams are relentlessly increasing.
