Governments Are Responsible For Natural Disasters
- Height of Conspiracy: 1900s to Present
It is actually pretty sad how often this specific concept is floated around. There are many people who are convinced that the government is responsible for major natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, and much more. This seems to go back to an earlier thing we mentioned revolving around contrails. As some are under the belief that either the United States government or all major world governments have control over the weather. Of course, this is one of the scientific conspiracy theories that seem to persist in nations like the United States more often. Mostly because many of these people also do not believe in climate change either.
You can, however, blame the government “slightly” when it comes to some earthquakes. We know we’re giving into this theory a bit but it’s not what you think. There is a common practice known as “fracking,” which is the process of injecting high-pressure liquid into subterranean rocks, and boreholes (among many other things) to force open existing fissures that might contain oil. This has been proven to cause some earthquake issues, especially if fracking is done in a particularly problematic area for earthquake issues anyway. However, the government only clears the ability for companies to do it. They are not involved in the process at all. Of course, this is only one thing in the wide variety of natural disasters that have impacted the world.
