If only we had signed the Kyoto treaty, none of this would have happened.

It's Bush's fault

There is no assessment yet made, no one attributes earthquakes to Bush or Global Warming and a dear friend of mine lives there. Congratulations, you must be proud. You pissed off a complete stranger over the internet for your ignorant remarks.

7.4 is no little quake.

No kidding, the Loma Prieta was a 7.1 for a point of reference (that was the '89 San Fran quake for all of you who weren't there and don't have that permanently branded into your memory)

It was sarcasm. Everything that has happened the last 6 years has been blamed by the true ignorants and enemies on the president and/or global warning. Someone has to post and get it out of the way:') Prayers for your friend.

He probably is. Colby is a tough ole bastard (he's a barrister to boot) but I still have some worry. I've known the man for 9+ years and he's my favorite Aussie. He lived in Darwin for a while then moved to Vanuatu. His internet connection was never better than dialup, so there may be some time before I hear. Still though, I worry.

I understand what you're saying. I'm guilty of it too. The "bush's fault" thing however is about mostly trivial BS.

This is about real people and life or death. I'm concerned for my friend. He is probably just fine, but that quake is a whopper.

The 2004 NBC mini series "10.5" layed the blame for the major earthquake as man made activity.

I was looking at a map one day and noticed we had a lot of little quakes in Texas. I followed the code. "man made"

According to IRIS, a 6.2 hit just off Honshu Japan just 2 minutes later.

Understand, I'm not a newb to FR. I get that.

It pisses me the eff off when it's not appropriate. In this case, it's not. It's not funny or appropriate when real people are probably dying.
