Weather predictor Ken Ring was basically rubbished on air in an interview with John Campbell for the Campbell Live show last night. I am often scepitcal of these people, but figure that it is stupid to write them off entirely. So I suggest proceeding with caution!
Do you think we should listen to these types of people with their predictions based on opinion and science? Do you think people like Ken Ring are just out for publicity through generic claims that could fit any situation (there are always earthquakes in Christchurch)? I have heard from other sources that it is common for a not quite as big aftershock a month after a big earthquake. Did you see the interview?
The weatherman, who uses the moon's positioning for long-range weather and earthquakes forecasts, predicted the February 22nd earthquake in Christchurch.
In his blog posted on the 14th February, he says "the window of 15-25 February should be potent for all types of tidal action, not only kingtides but cyclone development and ground movement".
And he's predicting another big jolt on March 20.

Will you be preparing yourself on March 20 for another earthquake? Is the world going to end in 2012 like some people think? Will there be a big earthquake in Wellington in June of an unknown year?
