86. Completion of above post.
I accidently posted before I was finished. Here is the rest.

3. You have to get that huge amount of energy to the target. Since one may assume that your aren't going to go to the target and drill down to the fault line, then you are talking about some means of doing it remotely. So you have to transmit an amount of energy that we can't even generate, to a target. (Star Trek Phasers?) We don't have the means to transmit that much energy.

4. You have to dispose of waste energy at the transmission site. When energy is put into a transmission system, there is ALWAYS waste, because no transmission system is 100%. Some of that incredible amount of energy is going to leak out at the transmission site and will have to be disposed of. We are talking about waste energy on the level of nukes. The waste energy alone would blow your transmission site to hell.

These are just some of the problems. There is no known physics today that can possibly cause an remote triggered earthquake.

And to try to cause an earthquake where one is already close to release would require even more energy.

YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT SHOVING TECTONIC PLATES AROUND. We just can't do that.
