This book is
about saving lives, not just a few lives, but tens of millions of
lives over the next fifteen years. If you live in a known earthquake
zone, this book may even save your life. This is not fiction. There
are some very dangerous seismic events coming. The core of this
book is a set of charts to identify the most likely dates for these
events between 2005 and 2020. The charts show that the next extreme
risk days occur in November 2005. However the book examines approximately
5,500 dates in two different time zones to assign a risk rating.
High risk days occur from week to week. Anybody living in harm's
way should consider a routine of safety measures appropriate to
the risk level of each day. Failure to do so could be fatal.
The predictions of this book are not guesses, not psychic readings
and not crank science. They are based on genuine scientific discovery
and calculation. There is a simple test to prove the predictions,
and that is to apply the method to history. When applied to the
last 30 years of data from the US Geological Survey database we
find that high risk days are almost nine times more likely to show
a great earthquake than low risk days and extreme risk days are
almost twice as likely again.
The book also examines where seismic disasters are most likely to
occur and proposes a range of survival measures. A particular area
of concern is Indonesia, where millions of lives are at risk.
