The mass media is silent about the massive increase of earthquakes around South Sandwich Islands. In fact, in 2021 the entire Southern Hemisphere has witnessed an increase in earthquakes, and even Australia experienced large magnitude earthquake in September. This increase of earthquakes is clear sign of the rapid shifting of Earth's magnetic poles, but of course, the holy scientists of the global warming religion are in charge and they will always find a theory to insert any observational fact to their dogma. ALL THE CURRENT CHANGES IN THE EARTH'S ATMOSPHERE, ON ITS SURFACE AND AT ITS INTERIOR ARE CAUSED BY HUMAN ACTIVITIES. HOW MUCH MORE STUPID CAN IT GET?
