Vastly increases potential of massive tsunami in next 20 years.
The reason I moved from the Gold Coast to Melbourne is that in addition to reading about the faults hanging by a thread on the Ring of Fire that were unknown up until about the 1990's, one of them which recently sneezed and destroyed Japan, I also discovered that nearly every one of them is overdue for an "adjustment." Combined with all the other earth changes I have been expecting for a long time, I realised I had constructed Firehold Bravo on what amounts to the trigger of a mousetrap. I had done well by building on solid stable rock but unfortunately it was right in the path of an area that was discovered to get hit by 1000 foot waves every couple of hundred years. The last time was just a short while before Captain Cook claimed to have discovered Australia. Back then nobody saw it unless it was some aborigines in the area. Otherwise you could get the impression it was a relatively stable area and build a lot of cities there, just as Australians have done. It is no such thing. What happened at Fukushima and before it at the Boxing Day Tsunami in Indonesia were just preliminary omens and canaries in the coal mine presaging major tectonic activity approaching soon for this region coming from the Pacific Ring of Fire.
After I read all this stuff I began having nightmares constantly about it. That's how it affected me. I used to wake up on Saturday mornings with a start because I thought I heard the roar of ocean water approaching. I know it is crazy. It is definitely crazy. It was really bothering me for a while, especially after Fukushima was hit. I began to think that the people trusting in outrageous good luck to protect them were the only people being unrealistic. The eastern coast of Australia gets hit with whoppers regularly. That's a fact. If you don't live on top of the mountains there (We had friends that did) then you should consider that in coming years your life could get really interesting, really briefly. The whole Ring of Fire in the Pacific is starting up and it probably won't cool back down until the end of the Maunder Minimum just starting now.
All I can say is that I have not worried at all about it since we moved to Melbourne. I have not had a single nightmare about a wave approaching that blotted out the sky. In fact, I don't think I have had any nightmares, period. That's all I can say about it. The move seems to have placated whatever inner muse was prompting me to it. I really wish I could have dug up Bravo and brought it down on the back of a truck but given all my problems with mold in that tropical climate, it might be for the best I will be building from scratch for the next one with a much improved design.
