MANA on earthquakes and fracking

After an earthquake in Hawkes Bay today a Mana Party candidate issued a statement:

“There’s nothing like a reminder from Ruaumoko why we shouldn’t allow fracking in Ikaroa-Rawhiti” said MANA Candidate Te Hamua Nikora following today’s 4.2 earthquake in Napier.

“I was in Napier when it struck and it freaked me out. We all know that our country sits on fault lines and today was a reminder of that”.

“If ever there was a reason to not allow fracking to take place in Aotearoa, I would have thought being on fault lines would be more than enough. This Government thinks it’s ok to open up the lands and seas of Ikaroa-Rawhiti so that the multinational oil and gas companies can come in and plunder all that they can. Potentially they may cause the odd earthquake and turn our underground water supply into fuel lines. Why take the risk?”

“MANA’s message is simple; Frack Off!”

Maybe it was an opportune sign. Other signs that might be Mana reminders:

  • A rain storm might remind us not to bore for water.
  • A snow storm might remind us not to go skiing.
  • A washout on a road might remind us not to use cars.
  • A landslip on a railyway line might remind us to avoid trains.
  • A tornado might remind us not to have rooves in case they blow off.

    I have no doubt that the technology exists to cause earthquakes and that this technology is related to oil exploration techniques. I would go further than suggesting that some New Zealand earthquakes have been unintentionally caused by fracking.
    Rather I think it extremely likely that the Christchurch earthquakes were caused by the use of the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, the University of Alaska, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).(Source:
    which can be used to bounce radio waves off the ionosphere to targeted below ground locations to determine the existence of oil and natural gas deposits.
    The fact that oil and gas exploration and mining companies are in New Zealand investing millions while claiming that they have only a 50% chance of being financially successful supports my suspicions. It does not make financial sense to speculate with so much money on a 50% gamble. It makes much more sense if they have already used technology which actually determines precisely where oils and gas deposits are. HAARP is such a technology and its capacity to trigger earthquakes is well documented.

    This means that some earthquakes will be predictable then? As usual money will resolve everything.
