    The link seems to be to a crank website (the usual riot of colours and fonts is a giveaway

    ), part of a family of crank websites run by a lawyer can Ben Davidson:

    "The Mobile Observatory Project, ObservatoryProject.com, Suspicious0bservers.org, Observing the Frontier, SpaceWeatherNews.com, MagneticReversal.org and QuakeWatch.net are creations of KAHB LLC, a company created and owned by Ben and Katherine Davidson.

    KAHB is a combination of the first letters of the first names of my family (pre-kids!), but now the company operates under the name Space Weather News, LLC

    My family comes first. Everything I do is for my wife Katherine, my children Kira and Noah, and our two puppies.

    Perhaps we should start a rival site called "Crankwatch".

    Ah! Thanks. Serves me right for not actually checking the link. The domain name sounded innocent enough.

    I haven't spent much time vetting the site, so can't really tell whether any actual science is being attempted there, so far.

    For now, I'm putting this thread in "Alternative theories", because the earthquake predictions there seem to take into account some rather strange factors, at first glance - e.g. looking at what the Sun is doing, rather than (or maybe together with) what the earth is doing.

    At some future point, if any discussion ensues, I might decide to move it firmly into Pseudoscience. There's always the slim possibility that it might turn out to be proper Science, though my first impression is that's unlikely, and I have to bear in mind that it's river's post.

    Seems to involve claims that earthquakes are electrically generated. And there is something on one of the other sites about a "plasma universe", which I see is a wacky theory developed (naturally) by an engineer......

    I smell electrocrankery.......

    But he was an intramural golf champion! They don't give out those awards to just anyone, you know.
