It Was Only A Matter Of Time
As Iowahawk joked in late 2004, "Top Scientists Warn: Fire Make Sea Gods Angry!"
- India Daily, 1/5/05: "The cause of Tsunami is earth’s melting of permafrost in artic circle due to global warming: Indian Scientists – many more global landslides and earthquakes possible."
- Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. at the Huffington Post, 8/29/05: "Now we are all learning what it’s like to reap the whirlwind of fossil fuel dependence which Barbour and his cronies have encouraged. Our destructive addiction has given us a catastrophic war in the Middle East and--now--Katrina is giving our nation a glimpse of the climate chaos we are bequeathing our children."
- Spotted by Australia's Tim Blair today: "Actor Danny Glover believes that the Haitian earthquake was caused by climate change and global warming."
Top scientists and Danny Glover agree!
Seriously though, while it was only a matter of time for such an outburst from Gaia's more impassioned defenders, as I said yesterday, responding to Pat Robertson's outburst, let's have a separation of church and quake please -- from both sides of the aisle.

Update: And speaking of omnipotent powers! In office or not, is there nothing President Bush can't do!?
