CNN Decides To Mainstream Notion That Puerto Rico Earthquakes Are Linked To ‘Climate Change’

Puerto Rico has been experiencing lots and lots and lots of earthquakes over the last week. They had a big 5.9 Saturday. Here’s just one view of what is going on

Remember, Warmists are blaming/linking the earthquakes to anthropogenic climate change (much like Warmists have done with other earthquakes). So, let’s go to CNN where they are always looking for responsible journalism and opinions, never hysterical and cultish

In Puerto Rico, quakes worsen climate of fear

(the headline above is from front page. It has gone through several changes. The one on the single page is “Puerto Ricans need new words to show what’s at stake”)

On Saturday morning the earth shook from under my elderly mother’s feet in Ponce for the nearly one thousandth time — the earth has not stopped shaking since the early morning of December 28. Since then, according to Puerto Rico’s Seismic Network, there have been nearly 1,000 tremors and aftershocks, the largest one slamming the southern region on Tuesday and registering 6.4 on the Richter scale. Tuesday’s quake — which locals are calling El Grande — came a day after a 5.8 magnitude quake struck Monday morning. That same morning, Paul Earle of the US Geological Survey (USGS) told David Begnaud in an interview on “CBS This Morning” that the estimated chance of another big earthquake happening at 3%. On Saturday, another earthquake with a magnitude of 5.9 rocked Puerto Rico, according to the US Geological Survey.

The back-to-back natural disasters — earthquakes and hurricanes — that have hit the Caribbean island of my birth in just over two years have left many residents there anxious, sad, stressed out, confused, irritated, and exhausted. And also, asking questions. They are wondering if man-made events are the reason why the earth is literally coming apart under their feet, threatening the very ground they walk on.

“It’s crazy,” a friend texts me in the middle of the night from her home near San Juan. “It’s like we’ve entered some kind of porthole, loop, an alternative reality, an aberration of reality … so many crazy things going on and increasing in intensity. I’m concerned fracking is the result. We are being dismissed as crazy.”

Both the US Department of Energy and the USGS have denied rumors of fracking on the island in statements to the media. But after the treatment the island of Puerto Rico has received by the US government, especially under the Trump administration — but also extending back decades across administrations of both parties — no one could rightfully question the skepticism or the raw power of fear held by people who live there.

No one could rightfully question! Except everyone who understands Real Science rather than Cult of Climastrology science. Heck, after highlighting this cult Hottake, opinion writer Sandra Guzman, notes something real

The island residents I’m in touch with are particularly questioning if rigs they have photographed and observed near areas where new gas and petroleum was found a few miles off fault lines — Lajas Valley, Montalva Point, and the Guayanilla Canyon — could be causing unusual seismic events. The quakes are happening a few miles off the southern coast as the North American plate and the Caribbean Plate squeeze Puerto Rico. Literally.

Yes, literally. Perhaps the government run education system should teach more in the way of science rather than gender confusion, anal sex, Protesting, and being a social justice warrior. Anyhow, regarding the new words, let’s look

Geologists and social media journalists have used their networks to calm the public and dismiss the connection. People in Puerto Rico are asking questions because they don’t buy the answers they’ve been given by geologists and others. They’ve coined a new word for those who refuse to stop questioning, conspira-noicos, two Spanish words that form a combination of conspiracy and paranoid.

So, they’re questioning people involved in a hard science by invoking a new word for their climate cult beliefs. And then

Locals in the region say they are under attack by energy colonialists. Energy colonialists is another term they have coined to describe the 21st century battle for the billion-dollar gas industry on the southern part of island. It’s playing out now in a toxic mix of tremors, tsunami warnings, and confusion. Roughly two-thirds of the island has been in the dark, without power, a situation that only breeds more exhaustion and fear. Even as the power begins to come back on for some, for many the fear will linger.

SJWs

Language continues to be expanded by Puerto Ricans and Puerto Ricans will continue to create new words to describe just how much is at stake in the era of climate emergency when words in the dictionary are not enough.

Good grief. There is not climate emergency, and earthquakes are not being caused by man-induced climate change, nor are they linked.

    On 11 October 1918, the western coast of Puerto Rico was hit by a major earthquake which caused a tsunami. The 1918 earthquake was caused by an old left-lateral strike-slip fault near the Mona Passage. In 1953, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic,

    In 1918 the CO2 readings in the air were 302ppm. In 1800 the PPM was 282.

    Please explain how co2 is responsible for todays volcanos. when there were just as many volcanos in 1800 when the co2 was 282 as there are today when the co2 is 402.

    Put more lipstick on that pig cause its looking uglier and uglier what wid all those scientific facts and all.

    Isn’t it reasonable to investigate whether hydraulic fracturing (fracking) impacts earthquake frequency?

    https://phys.org/news/2019-09-link-fracking-earthquakes.html

    Can you blame our fellow citizens in Puerto Rico for wondering? After all, they’ve been through a lot the past few years.

    Article: But after the treatment the island of Puerto Rico has received by the US government, especially under the Trump administration — but also extending back decades across administrations of both parties — no one could rightfully question the skepticism or the raw power of fear held by people who live there.

    TEACH: No one could rightfully question! Except everyone who understands Real Science rather than Cult of Climastrology science.

    Denialist propagandist TEACH rewrites the concern of Puerto Ricans! They don’t trust their own federal gov’t to tell them the truth but TEACH misleads his hapless readers by accusing them of questioning Real Science! Suddenly TEACH is unquestioning of our federal government.

    The scientific truth is that it is highly likely that fracking is responsible for minor quakes.

    https://www.usgs.gov/news/induced-earthquakes-raise-chances-damaging-shaking-2016

    The question is whether fracking is taking place in and around Puerto Rico (probably not!). It’s most likely that the current PR earthquakes are NOT induced.

    But TEACH believes that Americans should not question their federal government.

      Yeah, and investigate all those earthquakes in North Dakota while we’re at it.

      It is? How’s ’bout the fact PR lies on a huge fault? And real science does not include global foolishness.

      After all, real science is based on proof, not consensus.

      BTW Teach was being sarcastic. Of course, you’re too dense to see such things.

      Nice little weasel there.

      But TEACH believes that Americans should not question their federal government.

      He spent 8 years questioning it recently.

    For those interested in science, rather than Lefty witchcraft, some facts about PR’s vulnerability to quakes.
