Earth is fighting to stay alive – mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin in 2016

Posted by feww on November 20, 2015

M6.0 quake strikes SSE of Chichi-shima, Japan

Centered at 25.9ºN, 143.4ºE, about 90km SSE of Chichi-shima, the quake occurred at a depth of 10km , according to Japan’s weather agency.

Approximate Distances

  • 990km SSE of Katsuura, Japan
  • 1,050 SSE of Tokyo

Nishinoshima Volcano (27.247°N, 140.874°E)

The quake struck near Nishinoshima volcano, which resumed eruption on Tuesday. Intermittent eruptions have helped the volcanic island to grow by more than 12-folds in the past two years.

Located about 1,000 kilometers south of Tokyo, Nishinoshima Island currently measures about 2,000 meters across.

In 2013, an undersea eruption formed a new island near Nishinoshima, and continuing lava flows eventually linked the two islands several months ago.
