Smoke and Mirrors: New Zealand shaken by recorded and felt ‘Ghost quakes’

Posted by te2ataria on September 11, 2018

Today’s Prayer:

  • Lord, please strike down corrupt politicians, judges and their progenies throughout the world, especially in NZ…

How did so many people feel the quakes, if “they didn’t occur”?

Geonet quake jockeys get their knickers twisted, or something more cynical?

Four earthquakes were recorded on Geonet’s monitoring website on Monday, and  people across the country reported feeling the tremors.

However, the quakes appear to have been “ghost quakes” because they never occurred.

Geonet says that a strong quake M6.9 quake 785km north-east of Whakatane some130km deep triggered the ghost quakes locally.

A GNS Science ghost seismojockey said:

“When we get these large earthquakes up north of New Zealand – it happens quite often actually with events even further north in the Pacific Islands – our system records them and the first stations that start to get the signal, they try to locate [the quake] but they go under the assumption that the earthquake is actually close to New Zealand.

“So they mis-locate it as being close to New Zealand and then further south, stations start to record it and they try to associate it with the previous earthquake but since the previous earthquake was located really badly, it can’t associate it so they think it’s a new earthquake and … this starts happening all over the country.”

Which begs the question: How did so many people feel the quakes, if “they didn’t occur”?

What next, ghost zombies?

Air Farce Toxic Foam

Foam contamination found in streams around Palmerston North airport

Contamination from banned chemicals in firefighting foam

“Contamination from banned chemicals in firefighting foam at levels above safe drinking water guidelines has been found in streams around Palmerston North airport.”

Here’s why you’re out of your fucking minds!

Department of Conservation decision makers victims of brain damage caused by banned toxic foam

The Department of Conservation has proposed to allow dogs into Westland Tai Poutini National Park, home to endangered native birds including kiwi, little blue penguin and kea.

Four tracks have been earmarked for recreational dog walking in the national park – Tatare Tunnels Walk, Callery Gorge Walk, Canavan’s Knob Walk and Neils Creek Track. Dogs would need to be on a leash.”

Myrtle rust: Number of infected properties rises to 12  — [Bad Karma]

Myrtle rust is a serious fungal disease that affects plants in the myrtle family. Plants in this family include pōhutukawa and mānuka. The first detection of the disease in mainland New Zealand was at a Northland nursery in early May 2017. The disease is likely to affect some of our iconic native plants as well as commercially-grown species.  [MPI]

Myrtle rust has been found in Kerikeri in Northland and in Waitara, Taranaki. It is also widespread on Raoul Island in the Kermadec group, about 1,100km to the north-east of New Zealand. Myrtle rust (Austropuccinia psidii) is also known as guava rust and eucalyptus rust. The fungus attacks various species of plants in the Myrtaceae family, also known as the myrtle family. It is found in many parts of the world including New Caledonia and all along Australia’s eastern seaboard. Myrtle rust spores are microscopic and can easily spread across large distances by wind, or via insects, birds, people, or machinery. Source: info@mpi.govt.nz

Myrtle rust fond on at least 12 properties

“Four further Taranaki properties have tested positive for myrtle rust, bringing the number of positive locations nationally to 12.

“At this time, the disease has only been recorded in 2 regions – Northland and Taranaki. 8 of the affected properties are plant nurseries or retailers/distributors, and it has been detected in four private gardens.

“This response is rapidly changing as large numbers of members of the public report through suspected finds. To date, Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has received some 380 reports of suspected symptoms through its 0800 number and the number of affected properties is expected to grow.”  http://www.mpi.govt.nz/news-and-resources/media-releases/myrtle-rust-response-media-update-22-may-2017/

Police Road Fatality Reports: Extreme Censorship in Effect

  • NO vehicle-related fatality report allowed by police today, as of posting, despite multiple serious crashes reported locally. [Only one train v pedestrian fatality reported. See above.]
  • At least five foreigners have been killed in vehicle-related crashes in New Zealand recently. The fatalities include two Singapore nationals, two Samoans and one Aussie.
  • Based on insider information, statistical models and local news, We believe about 900 people were killed and 8,000 others seriously/critically injured on NZ suicide roads in 2016; however, only 328 fatalities were reported last year.
