Overview

"This is simple but brilliant observation, followed by reasonable applications; implausible to dismiss as coincidence."--Dr. Cort Stoskopf, Co-host, Popular Science Magazine/ Radio, April 20, 2013

Millions of people on three continents, from London to Caracas, from Liverpool to Los Angeles, have heard the evidence in “Earthquake Prediction: Answers in Plain Sight”— on television and radio, in newspapers and magazines. It’s an important message for the immense populations along the US and Canadian west coasts and the Mississippi River Valley.

While the prevailing view has placed seismic forecasting in the realm of near impossibility, a number of facts infer quite the opposite. Here is a persuasive and open-minded inquiry into compelling clues and data that have been downplayed or ignored for almost two centuries, connecting hundreds of scientific studies with a stunning series of historic seismic events on the US West coast during the 20th century. "Earthquake Prediction" attempts to answer an ancient enigma by joining the interlocking parts of a scientific detective story that ranges from the steppes of Russia, to the jungles of Central America, and back to the San Andreas, Cascadia and New Madrid Fault Zones in the US and Canada. Remarkable evidence concerning what has been hypothesized about quake prediction--from as early as antiquity to the present--gives a thought-provoking overview of how this topic has remained in scientific limbo for so many centuries, culminating in a list of hours-long higher probability windows for seismicity into the future. Here are the plain spoken reasons how and why it should be realized that it is plausible, with some degree of accuracy, to forecast the next ground-shaking catastrophe.

“If proven this would be the “Holy Grail” of seismology.”—Conan Nolan, News Anchor, KNBC News, Los Angeles, 1997
“It’s such a no-no. Seismologists won’t even talk about it!”—Kate Delaney, America Tonight, 2010
“It’s simply mind-boggling that with the evidence Nabhan has put in front of scientific and governmental authorities over the last two decades that they are still reluctant to at least consider the advisory he proposes. Simply mind-boggling.—Rob Mc Connell, X-Zone television and radio, Canada, 2011
“This is the multi-billion dollar question. Does David Nabhan have the answer?”—David Page, KSRO Morning News, San Francisco Bay Area

Meet the Author

David Nabhan is an advocate who has been calling for the creation of an earthquake advisory for the US West Coast for the last two decades. He proposes a plan with zero cost and available for the first steps to be implemented tomorrow which, if after being validated and viewed as feasible by the appropriate panel of experts, could lead to the incipient phases of a rudimentary seismic warning system. His proposal to undertake a thorough investigation to determine whether higher probability windows for elevated seismic risks might be ascertained has placed that controversial debate into the public forum with the USGS, Cal Tech, and the Southern California Earthquake Center. Nabhan is currently directing a campaign to marshal public opinion to impel the Honorable governor of the state of California to convene the California Earthquake Prediction Evaluation Council for the purposes of establishing the viability or fallibility for such higher probability alerts. Mr. Nabhan is the author of three books on this subject, and has been invited to voice his opinion about the merits of the plan he proposes by science journals both in Europe and the United States. Nabhan spent most of his adult life in Southern California, taking degrees at Mesa College and San Diego State University. He was a certificated bilingual public school teacher for nineteen years in South Central Los Angeles and the former Los Angeles Unified School District Earthquake Preparedness Coordinator for his school site for fifteen of those years.
