Ankara Mayor Gokcek, the Sequel: 6.3R earthquake may have been caused …artificially

The powerful earthquake in the Aegean Sea on Monday might have been caused artificially, Ankara Mayor Melih Gokcek said just hours after 6.3 R stroke between the islands of Lesvos and Chios in the East Aegean Sea. It is not the first time, the Mayor of Ankara unfolds his scientifically unfounded conspiracy theory. He once again demands investigation into those evil seismic ships in the area, that cause the earthquakes. Of ocurs,e these ships are not Turkish, but belong to other countries – like Greece.

“Now I think that this might be an artificial earthquake. I do not say it is certain but it is a very serious possibility,” Gökçek tweeted.

The Ankara mayor unfolded his theory in some 20 Tweets and uploaded videos from earthquakes that occurred in Turkey also in areas like Van where no seismic ship conduct investigation.

The amateur earthquake-chaser wrote also:

“I say that it should definitely be investigated. Was there any seismic research ship sailing near the epicenter? If so, which country does it belong to?” he said.

Ankara Mayor Gokcek’s theory is apparently based on an obsession he obviously developed after being exposed to too much chem-trails. His theory claims that dark external forces organize the earthquakes cause with the aim to destroy the Turkish economy.

One may assume, Melih Gokcek has Greek ships in mind, seismic ships conducting hydrocarbon research in the area. But not only such ships. He ay have made suggestions in 1999. In 2017, his delirium theory has expanded and includes also other enemies like Fetullah Gulen, whom the Turkish regime accused of having organized the coup in July last year.

It is not the first time that Gökçek has theorized about “artificial earthquakes” triggered by nefarious foreign powers, Turkish newspaper Hurriyet notes.

In February, he said quakes in the western province of Çanakkale could have been organized by dark external powers to destroy Turkey’s economy.

“Today a serious earthquake occurred in Çanakkale. I have investigated and there is a ship conducting seismic research nearby. What this ship is researching and which country it belongs to should be solved urgently. I worry about a potential earthquake that could be triggered artificially. This should definitely be investigated and announced to the public,” he said.

Despite, Gokcek’s warning his friend Erdogan did not order any investigation. The Turkish president left his old friend and loyal supporter to worry alone in the cold.

I suppose, when Ankara Mayor Melih Gokcek finds out that the mysterious ships belong to powers that are friendly to Turkish state, – even that they are Turkish ships- he might need to rush to the nearest hospital for a double portion of strong antidote against conspiracy theories, deliriums and any forms of illusions.

The 68-year-old man is the mayor of the Turkish capital, the second largest Turkish city with more than 5 million inhabitants, since 1994.

  1. Sorry but he doesn’t sound loony to me. The two areas in Greece that are being explored for hydrocarbons – the Ionian and north Aegean (near Lesvos) – have been suffering severe earthquakes throughout the search period. This is not ‘accidental’ but ‘byproduct’ because the hydrocarbon search areas coincide with the edges of the tectonic plates. Remember “you can’t make omelettes without breaking eggs”?

      I remember powerful earthquake have been happening before the hydrocarbon research and independently of them

  2. As if the Turks are not doing their very best to destroy their economy all by themselves…
    But hey, better blame “other sources”

  3. I have a geology degree and am an amateur geologist. If we were able to cause earthquakes we would be able to save millions of lives by causing mild earthquakes to relieve the stresses that build up and thus prevent the large earthquakes that cause so much damage and kill so many people! Almost all of Turkey lies on the Anatolian micro-plate which is being squeezed (like toothpaste in a tube) in a south-westerly direction by the anti-clockwise rotation of the Arabian micro-plate as the Red Sea rift zone widens. Most of this movement is along the North Anatolian Fault which runs along the northern coast of Turkey, through the Sea of Marmara, and which then turns south-west into the Aegean where it’s known as the North Aegean Trench. This is a ‘sticky’ fault so huge stresses build up which are relieved by devastating earthquakes that regularly kill thousands of people in northern Turkey. It is the south-westward movement of the Anatolian micro-plate that caused the recent earthquakes near Lesvos, it’s got nothing to do with human activity.

  4. Tony Cross….. here you go:

    “A five megaton H-bomb device called Project Cannican was fired underground on Nov. 6th, 1971 in Alaska on Amchitka Island, of the Aleutians, closest to the then existing USSR. This island chain is located on what is a tectonic plate boundary known as part of the ring of fire. The shot was filmed and shows the ground in movement typical of an earthquake. The earthquake in this case was around seven on the Richter scale and generated a small tsunami that washed up on the shores of Hawaii and all along the western coast of north America from Alaska down to California. The tsunami did little damage, but the detonation of an H-bomb of such a size underground on a major fault proves that artificially triggering and earthquake is possible.”

  5. @zebedee did you hear of a 5-megaton bomb going off near Lesvos? No, thought not.

  6. Just out of interest I’ve done some research on the nuclear bombs and earthquakes idea. There is indeed some evidence that fault lines close to a nuclear blast can be ruptured, though in all the cases I’ve been able to review the shockwaves from the blast were several orders of magnitude larger than those from the ruptured fault. It does appear that the affect is marginal and the resulting ‘earthquake’ is both tiny and extremely short-lived. The USGS (US Geological Survey) states quite flatly that nuclear bombs do not cause earthquakes. Interestingly, the tidal forces that the Earth’s crust experiences due to the gravity of the Moon and Sun (the same forces that cause tides in the seas) subjects the crust to stresses around 100 times stronger than the 20 kiloton nuclear blast that destroyed Nagasaki (or the 15 kiloton blast at Hiroshima) so the crust, even at locked faults, is considerably more resistant than you might imagine.
