The 24 August 2016 Damquake in Italy- Dams caused it!

The Italy Earthquake of 24 August 2016 was caused by the World’s Dams

World's dams cause earthquakes
Modern civilization
Cannot detect cause!


The damquake:
2016-08-24T01:36:33.590Z 42.714 13.1719 10 6.2 mwp 0.199526231 65.5611

The dams of the world input a surge energy of 989 times the energy released

actually by the 6.2 MM shallow quake at the hypocentre. Thus the many aftershocks.
Some numbers will capture the scale of destruction and deaths:
The worldwide dam content change of 0.14 BCM which caused the earthquake and the aftershocks

resulted in a vertical upward displacement of the focal point of 91.3 m in 12 seconds of rupture.

The rupture at the quake and the aftershocks all culminated in this upward displacement of the hypocenters.

And hence the total destruction and landslides. The vertical upward displacement rate was 7.6 m/s and the upward

ground acceleration was 0.634 m/s/s at the 6.2 MM quake focal point. The vertical velocity was 5 orders of magnitude fold

that which existed on the average for the earthquakes in the world till the time of the 6.2 MM quake at Norcia. The vertical acceleration of the ground was 10 orders of magnitude fold that which existed before this quake on the average. The destructive power of

the released energy at the focal point was 10.5 TW. For comparison the total electrical power capacity
of the world is 6 TW! The distance to the center of gravity of the dam contents to the hypocentre was 8117 km on the great circle. 
The data for the Norcia earthquake was retrieved  from
on 6 October 2016.

COMPARISON OF Norcia quake with the La’Aquila quake brings out the power of dams to lift mountains(cf Ref: The science of dams causing earthquakes and climate change and the reference 5(Fisher) therein). See the revised(11 October 2016) Table1NorciaLaAquila: The rupture duration data and the data on injuries for this Table are from

USGS: Significant Earthquakesof the World at Updated information available now at:

From  Table1NorciaLaAquila, observe that the vertically downward displacement of the hypocenter of 91 m during the 6th April 2009 La'Aquila damquake is restored by the vertically upward displacement of like amount during the 24th August 2016 one.
The Chisquared distribution probability of 88% between the ratio of injuries during the two quakes, the ratio of energy released and the ratio of power applied at the two locations shows that these ratios are interchangeable.  The destructive power of the dam surges is thus enormously more than what the plate tectonics theory is capable of mustering( cf USGS reports of these two significant earthquakes in the reference above with its speculations).


Modern civilization, a society of specialists, however, is built on false foundations

of specializations and is blind to this fact of horror caused by the world's dams. See

Have a look at the characteristics of the Italian quakes in the dam era 1900-2016 compared with the pre-dam era -1450 to 1899, Table 1:
See how the number of significant 6MM & + earthquakes in Italy and all significant earthquakes in Italy vary similarly with World Dam Capacity

How can we improve our civilization from this fate? Get rid of dams and deforestation!

The development mantra of PM Modi must include these for survival in health.

Also to avoid catastrophic extinction breeders like the Fukushima triple melt which was caused by the dams of the world. See

This Italian phenomenon and the like elsewhere(like Fukushima in 2011 and continuing) and the lessons were not learnt and the world moved swiftly by NOVEMBER 2019 to lowly coronavirus dealing a death blow to modern civilization - a slap in the face of the wild people. The phenomenon illustrated by the Italian quakes of World Dam Dynamics shook the ecological base on which the health of Italy stood and which continues to this day as seen by the severity of the attack measured by the number of caronavirus hit cases and deaths as a result of the damage to the gene pool of Italy. Really the deterioration of the gene pool is a global phenomenon caused by World Dam Dynamics and the Italian case is one manifestation. We can buy an armed truce with modern civilization in the form of prevention by social distancing and a vaccine but the total shutdown is a stern warning for change to a way of life which respects nature and harmonises with her. Perhaps it is late and extinction is knocking on the doors of suicidal modern civilization, which is infintely inferior to nature.
