after wave of tsunamis have left the South Pacific
reeling, scientists are looking for answers. Now,
researcher Phil Lanois believes he may have found the
underlying cause of these destructive events - offshore
oil drilling. Dr. Lanois, (former professor of
environmental science at Landsville Community College in
Quebec and author of “When Sea Urchins Cry”) used
computer simulations and data analysis to reach this

vibrations from these giant rigs propagate across the
ocean floor causing massive shifts in the earth’s
crust.” Lanois states, “In 1896, the first offshore
wells were drilled in the Santa Barbara Channel. That
same year, 27,000 people died when a series of tidal
waves hit Japan. The evidence couldn’t be clearer. The
tsunamis, whales beaching themselves...it’s all

Singh, public relations representative for the
International Geological Institute scoffs at this idea.
“It’s preposterous.” She states, “Tsunamis are a natural
phenomenon caused by earthquakes on the ocean floor”.
Lanois’ explanation is corroborated by petroleum
industry insider Shane Williams. He says the big three
(Exxon, Shell, BP) have known about this problem for
years. “There was a memo circulating about this back in
the 90s” Williams confided “Now I wish I’d kept a copy.
I think I would make a good whistle blower - I’ve always
wanted to be on TV”.
