I like how in her quote prior to the earthquake she talked about how no candidate that doesn't understand science (in bold letters!) should be put into a position to make laws. In the meantime, her quote here is equivalent to "If we drill holes in their heads, we will release the evil spirits and cure them".

Also, from the science side (if you are to give credence to their flawed thesis), with the Earth's water cycle essentially being a closed system, "rising sea levels" are essentially just redistributing the weight of a fixed amount of water over around 0.0001% of the Earth's surface (essentially the continental/marine interface). If that change has some probability of releasing some fault pressure to cause an earthquake, it has an equal probability to stabilize fault pressure and prevent a quake. And again, only over the continental/marine interface.

AKA "trepanation".  Still practiced in some tribal cultures and was used in Europe up into the Middle Ages.

Back in the "dark ages" when I was in college, a geophysical professor showed us evidence that the North American continent had been depressed into the mantle during the "Ice Ages".  Because of that incredible weight, he pointed out that even now, 10,000 years later, the northern parts of the continent were still "rebounding", albeit slowly.  The fractures in the crust that formed when the continent was pushed away from Europe by the forces of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, are also part of what pushed up the Appalachian Mountains.  Quakes on the East Coast also travel further because of the more solid nature of the bedrock as opposed to the softer alluvial strata of the West Coast.  Those softer rocks, frequently sedimentary (shale, sandstone, etc.), absorb the quakes vibrations.

I'm pretty sure I saw this in a TEOTWAWKI movie:

https://twitchy.com/amy-curtis/2024/04/07/san-francisco-spraying-sodium-chloride-to-combat-global-warming-n2394816

I'm appalled at the hubris of the so-called scientists to just go ahead and do it. They are the same econazis who demand years long environmental impact reports before somebody drills a hole in the ground for oil. Or digs a hole in their backyard, for that matter.

Isn't salt bad for things made of metal?  As in, it causes them to rust?

And I thought it was now "Climate Change" instead of "Global Warming".  Or has that changed again?

In a refreshing switch from blaming everything on global warmulating/climate changing, there are now suggestions that Friday's earthquakes in New Jersey may have been caused by the impending solar eclipse:

And the rust just causes more corrosion which leads to more mining and metals productions to replace the rusted metal. 

That won't actually affect global warming since it is a myth anyway.

"The View" co-host Sunny Hostin blamed Monday’s solar eclipse, Friday’s earthquake and the expected cicada breeding season on "climate change."

"All those things together would maybe lead one to believe that either climate change exists, or something is really going on," she said Monday.

A few years back, she asked NASA if the Mars probe could see the flag the astronauts planted.  I am not sure which is worse.

Also, one of Lee's jobs was:

Quote
ackson Lee, who once led the House Science Committee’s space subcommittee, made several false statements that stunned a crowd of teenagers at Booker T. Washington High School during Monday’s solar eclipse.

She also responded to criticism by claiming that "Yes, I misspoke and those right wing extremists are making a big deal about it. I meant the sun."  :rofl:

Yes, she misspoke (obviously), but she didn't mean the Sun. She mentioned both the Sun and the Moon in her rambling mental dump.

Though the point would be that if she had actually meant the sun, it would be even stupider, since she was saying that humans can live on the moon because of "the gases".
