Scientists have found strong evidence that 2018 will see a big uptick in the number of large earthquakes globally. Earth's rotation, as with many things, is cyclical, slowing down by a few milliseconds per day then speeding up again.
You and I will never notice this very slight variation in the rotational speed of Earth. However, we will certainly notice the result, an increase in the number of severe earthquakes.
To start, the research team of geologists analyzed every earthquake to occur since 1900 at a magnitude above 7.0. They were looking for trends in the occurrence of large earthquakes. What they found is that roughly every 32 years there was an uptick in the number of significant earthquakes worldwide.
The team was puzzled as to the root cause of this cyclicity in earthquake rate. They compared it with a number of global historical datasets and found only one that showed a strong correlation with the uptick in earthquakes. That correlation was to the slowing down of Earth's rotation. Specifically, the team noted that around every 25-30 years Earth's rotation began to slow down and that slowdown happened just before the uptick in earthquakes. The slowing rotation historically has lasted for 5 years, with the last year triggering an increase in earthquakes.
To add an interesting twist to the story, 2017 was the 4th consecutive year that Earth's rotation has slowed. This is why the research team believes we can expect more earthquakes in 2018, it is the last of a 5-year slowdown in Earth's rotation.
What Is Causing Earth's Rotation To Slow Down?
As with many new findings in science, this story began with the data that supports the cyclical slowdown then speed up of Earth's rotation. The research team is then tasked with the "why" to explain this phenomenon. While scientists aren't exactly sure the mechanisms that produce this variation, there are a few hypotheses.
One hypothesis involves Earth's outer core, a liquid metal layer of the planet that circulates underneath the solid lower mantle. The thought is that the outer core can at times "stick" to the mantle, causing a disruption in its flow. This would alter Earth's magnetic field and produce a temporary hiccup in Earth's rotation.
Currently, the data only notes a striking correlation, but no causation. Hence, scientists are still unsure whether this change in Earth's rotation is the cause of an uptick in earthquakes.
While there's no direct link between the two, the trend over the past century suggests that 2018 will be an unusually active year for earthquakes. Typically, there will be 15-20 large earthquakes (M 7.0 or greater). However, during the noted uptick in earthquakes aligning to the 5th year of Earth's rotation slowdown there are on average 25-30 large earthquakes.
Earthquakes remain the most difficult natural disaster to predict. They tend to occur with little to no forewarning and can thus be incredibly destructive. Often times, geologists are limited to historical trends in data to predict the likelihood an earthquake will occur. This new research provides another dataset to inform communities about the near-term risks they face.

First broadcast on October 4, 2017, TBR Radio’s Andrew Carrington Hitchcock interviews Planet X researcher David Meade.
Contrary to mainstream media misinterpretation, David Meade never stated that the world would end on September 23 2017. Rather, one-third of Earth will suffer the catastrophic consequences of Planet X passing in the Jewish year of 5778 (2018). The indications of the approach of Planet X will be an increase in solar flares; the significance of Revelation 12:1 to 12:5; and many other topics.

In 2008 the CIA began quietly relocating its entire Langley, VA-based domestic operation to Denver. No clear explanation was given but to U.S. scientists, and naval personnel the reason is clear: in the immediate future violently rising sea levels and tidal waves would wipe out much of the East coast, Gulf coast and West coast cities. The cause of this danger is widely believed to be melting ice caps in Greenland and the Antarctic caused by man-made global warming. But the government knows the truth and the reason behind the deception —a newly discovered 9th planet is wreaking havoc with the earth’s rotational, electrical and gravitational pull. John Moore, former intelligence analyst turned criminal investigator and private detective, will present nearly 20 years of research, interviews and critical observation into this electrifying story of what is about to happen on a global scale.Audio podcast is property of The Earth Frenzy Radio Show on Blog Talk Radio
The audio podcast "Doomsday Comet Prophecy" as spoken by the "Seer of Bayside" Veronica Lueken, at the 24th Anniversary of Our Lady’s Appearance at Bayside - June 18,1994.
The following are excerpts of the messages about the coming doomsday comet which Our Lady calls the Ball of Redemption. These messages are apocalyptic in nature and can be disconcerting to some. Parents, please use discretion if reading these messages or discussing them in the presence of children or teenagers. Please refer also to the Book of Revelations in any New Testament Bible printed prior to 1964.It should be noted in the below messages the urgent recommendations from Our Lady to store food, water, blankets and blessed candles as well as placing a crucifix upon the outside of each door to your residence.
