Do not drill more wells into the 3000 mile Santa Barbara Fault Line

Do not drill more wells into the 3000 mile Santa Barbara Fault Line. It will be like drilling into a volcano.

Removing the oil from the Santa Barbara coastline will trigger larger earthquakes and tsunamis.

If we drill into this fault zone and remove the oil from this gigantic 3000 mile fault zone crossing the Pacific Ocean, we will make two changes that are not at all good. They are:

1) We will change the underground pressures, which will probably lead to fewer small scale earthquakes in the short term in a highly unstable tectonic area.

2) The removal of the oil will also take away one of the lubricating agents that keeps this fault system sliding smoothly. By removing the oil, you will lock the two plates together; the medium term result will be to diminish the earthquake tremors. The long term results will be, when the fault blocks finally move, that the pressures and forces, trigger an earthquake that will make the Haiti Earthquake look pleasant.

Earthquakes and Tsunamis would devastate Vandenberg Air Force Base, Santa Barbara and Los Angeles Counties

The resulting tsunamis that will be generated will devastate the Santa Barbara Coastline and Vandenberg Air Force Base. There will be no warning to the people of Vandenberg Air Force Base, Santa Barbara, Carpenteria, Ventura or Oxnard. The tsunami will be upon them within 5 minutes. This gigantic fault runs the full length of the Santa Barbara Coastline and out to sea, across the pacific ocean for 3000 miles. It is a real.

See the 3000 mile Fault Zone on Google Maps


Go to Google maps. Put in Santa Barbara. Click on the satellite mode in the top right hand corner. Pan out until you see the scale of the fault zone. You will know when to stop, when you can see the whole of the North American Continent. You can now enlarge the maps and follow the fault zone back to the Santa Barbara Coastline. This fault zone has created the step or zigzag fault block system of the Santa Barbara and Los Angeles Coastlines. The fault zone is also 30 miles wide with Vandenberg Air Force Base, Lompoc, Gaviota, Goleta, Santa Barbara, Montecito, Summerland, Carpenteria, Ojai and Sulphur Springs forming part of the northern boundary. The Southern boundary is bounded by the Channel Islands, Port Hueneme, Oxnard, Malibu, Santa Monica, Los Angeles, Pasadena, Glendora, Rancho Cucamonga and San Bernardino. These cities and towns will face the full force of the earthquake.

The military, the people and the environment suffers.
