Another possible cause of the Ferry Disaster MV Princess Of the Seas was revealed today in the fact that there are a critical lack of experts in the meteorology field to read the data that could have saved hundreds of lives. The Philippines had just invested $40 million dollars in new detection equipment, but they have nobody that knows how to use the equipment.

This appears to be a wide and varied problem for the PH as they lose critical experts in related fields of science to higher paying jobs in other countries. In this case it contributed to the heartache of many people. Nobody can put a price on that.

Ran across this post today that says that there may have been a nuclear blast as a result of the Sichuan Province earthquake supposedly coming from a high level Chinese military official. Apparently the largest Chinese military arms depot is located in a mountainous region there.

Of course now the theory is and has been for awhile that this quake may not have been a natural event. Who knows, with HAARP technology it may very well be possible according to some theorists.

After carefully analyzing seismic data, military experts in southeast Asia confirmed a non-geological shock had occurred at the earthquake epicenter. The energy released was equivalent to that of an underground nuclear explosion.
