Japan quake: Gaea is angry with us!

Global warming explains all. So I have written. Amen.


God, I love the magical thinking some people indulge in. In the real world, an earthquake is caused by tectonic plates fracturing and shifting along a fault line. Most people with a basic high-school education know that.

But, in the Cult of Anthropogenic Global Warming, Man is guilty of horrid offenses against the Earth, and so it punishes him.

Yes, global warming caused the earthquake off Sendai:

Hours after a massive earthquake rattled Japan, environmental advocates connected the natural disaster to global warming. The president of the European Economic and Social Committee, Staffan Nilsson, issued a statement calling for solidarity in tackling the global warming problem.

“Some islands affected by climate change have been hit,” said Nilsson. “Has not the time come to demonstrate on solidarity — not least solidarity in combating and adapting to climate change and global warming?”

“Mother Nature has again given us a sign that that is what we need to do,” he added.

Global warming enthusiasts have also taken to Twitter to raise awareness of the need to respond to the earthquake by finally acting on climate change. And the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s Lee Doren compiled some of the best ones.

Some examples:

AliceTMBFan said “2 hours of geography earlier talking about Japan has left me thinking…maybe global warming is way more serious then we thought…”

Arbiterofwords tweeted “I’m worried that Japan earthquake, on top of other recent natural ‘disasters’, is a sign we’ve passed point of no return for climate change.”

MrVikas said “Events like the #Japan #earthquake and #tsunami MUST keep #climate change at forefront of policy thought: http://bit.ly/cZe8To #environment

What’s next? Beseeching the forgiveness of the Goracle? Human sacrifice to propitiate Gaea?

I’m sure a drum circle is coming at any moment… .

    I guess public education has decided that plate tectonics is just too hard to teach these days, so we will pretend that Mother Earth is using earthquakes to frighten more people into using toxic (mercury vapor) florescent lights while consigning incandescent bulbs to hell… I mean, Gaia’s lower intestines…

    well now this is truly news,all of histories mysteries have been solved,the planet is likely only 2000 years old, the ice age never occuered,and man came from outer space also recently,right. now tell me the sumarrians existed,we came from anotehr planet called planet x,and earth is truly only 2000 years old,and i tell you maybe you got a few screws missing,and likely need a new outlook on life as we know it.
    this was strange stuff,i think it needs submitted to strange cosmos??????????????????
