The Rape Of The Earth And The Human Ego

By Mary Hamer M.D.

14 May, 2010

*CLAIM: I believe humans are destabilizing the Earth's crust & predisposing the Earth to earthquakes & a shift in the Earth's orbit-- as a result of Oil drilling, Nuclear bomb testing, Mining, Dams, Ground Injections of Waste Products, Skyscrapers & other human destructive activities in the Earth's outer land mass. As an example, I believe humans are converting the relatively low seismic Gulf of Mexico to a seismic geologic location – due to Oil drilling.  I am not a geologist; I am not a seismologist; I am not a volcanologist.  But, I am concerned Homo Sapien technological activities in the Earth's crust are putting locations such as the Gulf of Mexico at great risk for seismic events i.e. Earthquakes & other geologic events.

*WARNING by INDIADAILY.COM: Indiadaily.com states: “Uncontrolled drilling of (the) Earth's crust … will cause major problems. The Earth's crust is brittle …According to a computer model, if these drilling projects below the ocean & … on the continental crust are continued, it will cause … complete destruction of the crust”. “Some experts believe that (the) earth's crust weakening experiments should be … monitored by the United Nations”. (1) If humans destroy the Earth's crust & expose or breach the mantle, What unknown risks do we face? – Do we risk increased Earthquakes &/or Volcanic activity? Do we risk a shift in the Earth's axis? Do we risk a tilt in the Earth's axis?

*RAPE METAPHOR: Humans are raping the Earth. Rape is about Power, control & domination of another entity. Homo Sapiens are Penetrating, drilling, mining, blasting, damming, extracting & bombing the Earth's outer land mass -- As a sexual predator rapes it's victim & then leaves the victim for dead. & The Earth is hurting.

*BULLFIGHTING METAPHOR: Another metaphor to describe what humans are doing to the Earth is Bullfighting symbolism. Humans are goring the Earth's crust like a Matador spears a Bull to death during a Spanish Bullfight.

*HOMO SAPIEN AGENDA: Why are humans destroying the planet Earth's crust? In my opinion these human acts of exploitation of the Earth's outer land mass are due to:

#1. Human Overpopulation.

#2. Excessive Consumption of Natural resources.

#3. The human addiction to War & Military activities.

Homo Sapiens have excessive Self-interest & addictions to pleasure that drive human Overpopulation, the super-Consumption & depletion of natural resources and the creation of Pollution & waste – At the expense of other Animals, Trees & the Earth. Also, the Homo Sapien desire for wars consumes significant resources including Oil. Humans lack: Compassion, proactive behavior & impulse control for the Earth due to Greedy, glutinous & carnal drives for Oil, coal, dams & nuclear bomb testing.

*EVIDENCE of Human Destabilization of the Earth's crust by: Nuclear Bombs, Oil-Well Drilling, Coal Mines, Natural Gas Production, Dams & Reservoirs, Skyscrapers, etc.: While many Anthropocene (2) discussions in the media are focused on Human destruction of the Biosphere (3) i.e. the Atmosphere, Hydrosphere (oceans) & the living organic Lithosphere (4) – What about destructive human activities in the less sensational more inorganic solid component of the Earth's Crust? [Note: Synonym of Earthquake: Temblor (5), seismic activity or tremor. (6)] The Key Sections of this paper are: I. Nuclear Bomb Testing & Earthquakes, II. The 2004 Indonesian Earthquake, III. Oil & Gas Drilling & Earthquakes, IV. Coal Mining & Earthquakes, V. Dams, Reservoirs & Earthquakes, VI. Injection of Toxic Waste Products Underground, VII. Military Testing, VIII. Skyscrapers, IX. Miscellaneous Topics, X. Discussion.


*THE EARTH'S CRUST: The Earth's Crust is the outermost layer of the Earth & it ranges from 5-70 km in depth. The thin parts are the oceanic crust (5-10 km) … The thicker crust is the continental crust. [en.wikipedia.org: The Structure of the Earth.]

*”The crust thickness averages about 18 miles under the continents, but is only about 3 miles under the oceans. (The ocean's floor) is light & brittle & can break. … It is where most earthquakes originate”. (7)


*Whiteford studied earthquakes before nuclear testing & after nuclear testing: “In the fifty years before testing, large earthquakes of more that 5.8 occurred at an average rate of 68 per year. With the advent of testing the rate rose ‘suddenly & dramatically' to an average of 127 a year. The earthquake rate has almost doubled” as a result of nuclear bomb testing. Some studies warn that “Nuclear tests are weakening the earth's crust triggering earthquakes & causing the earth's pole to shift”. Shigeyoshi Matsumae, President of Tokai Univ. Department of Aerospace Science states: “Earthquakes & fluctuations of the earth's axis are related in a direct cause-and-effect to testing of nuclear devices”. “In 1991, the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation published Whiteford's findings in an article called: ‘Is Nuclear Testing Triggering Earthquakes & Volcanic Activity?'”


*NUCLEAR WEAPONS & VOLCANIC ACTIVITY: Babst & Krieger state: “In the early 1980's, the world had it's greatest volcanic activity in 70 years … At this time, many nuclear tests were being carried out by the U.S. & U.S.S.R.”. (9)


*MILITARY TESTING & EARTHQUAKES: On 12/26/4 , a 9.0 magnitude earthquake in the Indian Ocean caused a tsunami & it killed more that 300,000 people. “For some, the finger of blame doesn't point squarely at nature but at top secret Military testing in the waters of the Indian Ocean . The Egyptian weekly magazine Al-Osboa claimed that (this earthquake) ‘was possibly' caused by an Indian nuclear experiment in which ‘Israeli & American nuclear experts participated”. (10)

*NUCLEAR TESTING: Are humans causing earthquakes, volcanic activity & changes in the Earth's axis due to nuclear testing? Should nuclear agencies, governments & nuclear corporations conducting nuclear testing be held accountable for the negative effects of these tests on the planet Earth?


“On 11/28/4 , Reuters reported that during a 3 day span 169 whales & dolphins beached themselves in Tasmania …. Bob Brown, a senator in the Australian Parliament, said ‘Sound Bombing' or seismic tests of ocean floors to test for Oil & gas had been recently carried out near the sites of the Tasmanian beachings”…

“These (sound waves) are known to affect whales & dolphins, whose acute hearing & use of sonar is very sensitive”. …

“On 12/24/4 , there was a magnitude 8.1 earthquake more than 800 km southeast of Tasmania near New Zealand .” …

“Interestingly, the locations of the whale beachings over the previous 30 days correlates with the same general area struck by the 8.1 Australian earthquake. The seismic testing also took place in the same area. Then 2 days after the Australian tectonic plate shifted, the 9.0 earthquake shook the coast of Indonesia ”. (11)

*CONCLUSION: The Earth & it's animals & ecosystems are suffering due to Homo Sapien greed for Oil & gas and our addiction to consumer goods.

III. OIL-WELL DRILLING & EARTHQUAKES: e.g. the Gulf of Mexico .

*THE BRITISH PETROLEUM GULF OF MEXICO OIL SPILL: The British Petroleum oil drilling rig fire & oil spill was originally called an “Incident” by the U.S. government – The truth is that this man-made disaster is a major catastrophic event for the Gulf of Mexico & the world.

*THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION's Response to the BP Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill: Shannon Jones in her Gulf Oil Spill article states: “The response of the Obama administration to the (BP Gulf of Mexico) disaster is indicative of it's prostration before the powerful corporate & financial interests it serves”. “Following the oil rig explosion the Obama administration remained Silent & indifferent”. “The White House continued it's silence as the scale of the disaster widened, continuing it's calls for expanded offshore drilling”. Downplaying the significance of the unfolding environmental catastrophe, (President Obama) merely called the oil spill an ‘Incident'”. (12)

*SAFETY EXEMPTIONS: The U.S. exempted British Petroleum from Safety Study: “The ( U.S. ) Interior Department exempted BP's calamitous Gulf of Mexico (Oil) drilling operation from a detailed environmental impact study. …. Three reviews of the area concluded that a massive oil spill was unlikely”. (13)

*RESPONSIBILITY: Who is Responsible for this Environmental Catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico ? British Petroleum, Halliburton, Trans Ocean & Cameron International are responsible for the Deepwater Horizon explosion, the destruction of Gulf of Mexico ecosystems near Louisiana, the damage to the fishing industry and the killing of birds & animals including dolphins & pelicans -- & the risk for a Seismic event in the Gulf of Mexico. I feel BP, Halliburton, TransOcean & Cameron International failed to apply the Precautionary Principle in their Deepwater Horizon Oil well operation in the Gulf of Mexico – especially with respect to safety measures such as the Blowout Preventer. (14) (15)

* GULF of MEXICO OIL RIGS : Number of Violations of the Earth's crust in the Gulf of Mexico : ”The number of U.S. (oil rigs) in the Gulf (of Mexico ) is roughly 4,000”. (16) *DEEPEST OIL WELL: The Depth of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Well: The Deepwater Horizon was “The deepest oil & gas well ever drilled with a vertical depth of 35,050 feet (10,680 m)” (about 6.6 Miles). (17)

*OIL WELLS CAUSE EARTHQUAKES: “Pumping out underground crude contracts the rock in oil reservoirs & sets up large pressure changes over short distances”. (18) Segall states: “Seismicity is correlated in space & time with production from some oil & gas fields”. (19)

*HUMAN-TRIGGERED EARTHQUAKES IN SEISMICALLY INACTIVE AREAS: “The rate of seismicity in the Gulf of Mexico is relatively low”. (20) Klose states: “Human-triggered earthquakes are particularly dangerous … if they occur in seismically inactive areas”. (21) Question: If a human-induced earthquake occurs in a low seismicity area such as the Gulf of Mexico , will such an earthquake be as “dangerous” as Klose warns?

* GULF of MEXICO 2006 EARTHQUAKE: In 2006 a “Magnitude 6.0 temblor, centered … southeast of New Orleans , Louisiana , occurred. …Powerful earthquakes are rare but not unheard of in the Southeast U.S. … Most earthquakes take place near the edges of the tectonic plates …The recent Gulf of Mexico earthquake … occurred in the middle of a plate”. (22) Question: Was this rare 2006 Gulf of Mexico earthquake related to oil drilling in the Gulf?

*GULF of MEXICO POLLUTION: Secondary Effects of Damage to the Gulf of Mexico's Earth's Crust: The Gulf of Mexico is becoming a Toilet, a Sewer of man-made pollution from: The BP Deepwater Horizon Oil spill, Debris from land sources (including waste disposal facilities, waste water treatment plants & post-storm runoff from urban & agricultural sites) (23), Tanker debris & chemical pollutants (24), Mississippi River run-off including Dead zones & Red tide algae blooms (25), (26), etc.. Also, University studies identify: “Flame retardant materials in … (the) Gulf of Mexico ” & “Human & animal feces in the Gulf of Mexico ”. (27)

* HAITI EARTHQUAKE: Was the Haiti Earthquake near the Port-au-Prince of January 12, 2010 with a magnitude of about 7 (28) -- affected by Oil drilling in the Gulf of Gonave ?

*CONCLUSION: Humans are penetrating the Gulf of Mexico with oil wells to satisfy modern society's addiction to fossil fuels – While at the same time Homo Sapiens are putting the Gulf of Mexico at risk for earthquakes & polluting this ecosystem.


*Klose states “Three of the biggest human-caused earthquakes of all time … were a trio that occurred in Uzbekistan 's Gazli natural gas field between 1976 & 1984”. (29)


*”Klose has identified more than 200 human-caused temblors, mostly in the past 60 years. ‘They were rare before World War II' (Klose) said. ‘Most were caused by mining'”. (30)

“The most powerful earthquake in Australian history (1989) magnitude 5.6 … was caused by human beings!” “That quake was triggered by changes in tectonic forces caused by 200 years of under ground coal mining, according to a study by Christian D. Klose of Columbia University 's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades , New York ”. “'Klose has indentified more than 200 human-caused trembles, mostly in the past 60 years. ‘There were rare before World War II'” (Klose) said. Klose states “‘Most were caused by mining … but nearly one-third came from reservoir construction. Oil & gas production can also trigger earthquakes'”. (31)

*OTHER MINING ACTIVITIES & EARTHQUAKES: Lendman quotes Klose as stating: “Mining activites disturb the … stress in the upper continental crust & can trigger earthquakes”; Lendman goes on to cite past examples of human-induced earthquakes including: Potash mining, copper mining & ore mining. (32)


*The Koyna Dam & the Koyna Reservoir in India were built & filled with water in 1962 & 1963, respectively. In 1967 “An earthquake with an approx. magnitude of 7.0 shook the region in & around the dam”. “The area was believed to be seismically stable prior to this event. Most experts are convinced that this earthquake was reservoir-induced. The concept of a reservoir-induced (or dam-induced) earthquake is that the enormous pressure of the water behind the dam actually causes shifting in the underlying earth, eventually leading to increased seismicity”. (33)

* Hoover Dam: “Perhaps the most famous example (of Reservoir Loading & Earthquakes) in the United States is that of Hoover Dam. Hundreds of earthquakes occurred as the water level rose. … The level of seismicity … fluctuated in direct response to (the) water level. … The largest (shock) was about magnitude 5 … The area had no record of being seismically active”. (34)

*Regarding China 's Zipingpu Dam & the subsequent earthquake in 2008, Lendman quotes Science magazine as stating: “The added weight (affected the) fault, weakening it & increased the stress tending to rupture (it). The effect was 25 times that of a year's worth of natural stress loading from tectonic motions. When the fault did finally rupture, it moved just the way the reservoir loading had encouraged it to (move)”. (35)


*Lendman states: In 1961, …(the Army) injected “Napalm toxic waste into the earth's crust (in the Rocky Mountains ) … (that) likely trigger(ed) regional earthquakes”. Lendman quotes seismologist Dave Wolney as stating: If you are doing deep well injection, you are altering the stress on the underlying rocks & at some point, (it) will be relieved by generating an earthquake”. (36)

*CARBON DIOXIDE CAPTURE & STORAGE & Climate Change Management: “During the 1950's, it was discovered that injection of fluids (into the earth) at high pressures could cause small-to-medium sized earthquakes. … Guidelines have been developed to prevent injection-induced microseismicity. Now, regulatory agencies limit injection rates & pressures to avoid unintentional hydrofracturing. Microseismic monitoring is often done (during a project) to establish operational parameters for injection. Carbon dioxide storage projects would operate under similar guidelines (to minimize the risk of earthquakes). (37)

VII. U.S. MILITARY HAARP TESTING: Although the HAARP program involves primarily the atmosphere with secondary effects on the Earth's crust, it is another illustration of potential man-made earthquakes that can cause damage to the Earth. “A number of independent researchers have warned” that the Military's HAARP (High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) “Operation has a secret agenda including weather modification, mind control, hi-tech military experiments & the triggering of earthquakes”. (38)


*Lendman states regarding Ravilious' UK Guardian article titled: “Skyscraper May Cause Earthquakes”: The Taipei #101 (building) in Taiwan , the world's tallest building weighing 700,000 tons: “The building's stress may have reopened an ancient fault. Before it's construction, the Taipei basin was very stable … Thereafter, ‘The number of earthquakes increased”. (39), (40).



“New evidence showing that very large earthquakes can trigger an increase in activity at nearby volcanoes – has been uncovered by Oxford University scientists”. (41)

*VOLCANIC ACTIVITY & VIOLATIONS of THE EARTH'S CRUST: Question: If Volcanic activity is defined as: “An opening or rupture in (the Earth's) surface or crust, (through) which … hot magma, ash & gases … escape” (42)– & Volcanoes & Earthquakes are strongly related (43) -- & There is proof of human-induced earthquakes [Material presented in this paper.] --Then why wouldn't Oil drilling or other violations of the Earth's crust predispose the Earth not only to Earthquakes, but also to increased Volcanic activity – Or other yet unknown disasters?


Although there is no evidence that the Chilean earthquake was human-induced, this earthquake demonstrates the potential of earthquakes to cause tsunamis & to affect the earth's orbit.

*”The 8.8 earthquake in ( Chile ) … has caused considerable changes throughout the world. No only was there a tsunami some 6,700 miles away on the other side of the ocean, but the force of the earthquake … caused the earth to shift 3 inches off her axis”. (44)

-- “Which will shorten our day by a little over 1 microsecond”. (45) Note: “The climate & weather patterns are determined by the earth's tilt & not rotation. The quake didn't knock the earth off it's current tilt”. (46)

*GLOBAL WARMING & TILT OF THE EARTH'S AXIS: While global warming generally involves the atmosphere, it's effects upon the ice sheets of the Earth's crust classifies it as a relevant topic for discussion in this paper. “Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory say that global warming could actually alter the tilt of our planet's axis due to instability from (& redistribution of the Earth's weight from) melting ice sheets”. (47)

*THE HUMAN EGO: The goal of the Kola Superdeep Borehole was “To drill as deep as possible into the Earth's crust” -- about 7 & ½ miles deep into the Earth. It is the deepest hole ever drilled -- & For what purpose? The human Ego? (48)

*NUMBER OF TOTAL PENETRATIONS OF THE EARTH'S CRUST: Due to All Human Exploitative Activities: It is difficult to quantify the total number of all human destructive events in the Earth's outer land mass. Here is a sample of numbers of exploitations of the Earth's crust: U.S. Oil wells in 2006: over 500,000; Chinese large Dams: over 22,000; France: 160 underground Nuclear tests; China : 22 underground nuclear tests; India : 6 underground nuclear tests; Pakistan : 6 underground nuclear tests. (49), (50), (51)


*PENETRATING, DRILLING, MINING, EXTRACTING & BOMBING: Given the increasing Human population, the demand for Natural resources such as Oil & Technology – Humans are destroying the Earth's crust. As we keep penetrating, drilling, mining, extracting & bombing the Earth's crust, I believe that humans are weakening the Earth's outer land mass. Also, nuclear bomb explosions underground & in the oceans are weakening the Earth's crust.

*EARTHQUAKE & VOLCANIC RISK: As we weaken the Earth's crust, we are increasing the risk of earthquakes & secondarily volcanic activity.

*THE EARTH'S AXIS: These earthquakes then have a potential to cause a shift in the Earth's axis. Climate change is also affecting the make-up of the Earth's crust & hence the tilt of the Earth's axis.

*CONSENT: We all give our consent to the Governments & Corporations to abuse the Earth. We are all responsible for this Rape of the Earth. But, the masses of people also have the power to withdraw their consent for this Violence to the Earth.

*VIOLATION of the Earth's Crust below a Sacred NATIVE AMERICAN Site: The Black Hills of South Dakota are a sacred site for the Lakota Nation -- & yet the Black Hills are being exploited for “Scientific purposes” deep below the Earth's surface in the old Homestake gold mine. “Far below the Black Hills of South Dakota, crews are building the world's deepest underground science lab(oratory) … -- A place uniquely suited to scientists' quest for mysterious particles known as dark matter”. One person states regarding this Black Hills scientific laboratory: (It) “Tickles us pink”. (52) Are the Native Americans “Tickled pink” about this scientific project located about a mile below one of their religious sites? Are U.S. scientists placing a higher value on science & dark matter than on Respecting the Earth's crust & a sacred Native American site at Black Hills ?


*THE HUMAN EGO: We are Not a wise species as our Homo Sapien name suggests. Rather we are Homo Violent. We humans do Not live in harmony with the Earth – Rather we Homo Sapiens are separate from the Earth.  We are enemies of the Earth. We are predators. We seek to Dominate, conquer & destroy: the Earth, the Native Americans, the Tibetan people, the Mustangs, the Eagles, the Dolphins, the Trees, etc.. We lust for Power & Control.  Why?  The HUMAN EGO -- It is a very dangerous thing.  & I Apologize to the Universe for the Human Ego out to the 10K-1 Galaxy.

Namaste. Salaam. Shalom. Shanti. Peace.

Thank you. Respectfully, Mary Hamer, M.D.
