Someone has got to publish a paper linking earthquakes to global warming! I can’t believe these events are still being written off as “acts of god” when people could be convinced to feel responsibility and guilt. Who wouldn’t pay an extra dollar per gallon for gas or buy a more expensive car if you could convince them we would have an earthquake if they don’t act now.
