  1. The increasing frequency and intensity of natural disasters looks like it's could be evidence of climate change, in my opinion.

  2. @Martin:

    Your theory regarding "natural disasters" seems to be based on the homocentric superstition that a "healthy" Earth will exhibit fewer earthquakes/ volcanoes/ hurricanes/ forest fires/ mud slides, et al, when, in fact, no such occurrences are, in and of themselves, symptoms of a "problem" (however inconvenient they may prove to be for human populations): they are business as usual for this planet. I suspect quite a few people are susceptible to various "Climate Change" narratives because these narratives play to subconscious, quasi-religious fears that we (humans) are being "punished" for "sins" as diverse as industrial pollution, technological hubris and sexual perversion. I suspect the architects of these narratives are aware of this fact and push the right Media buttons accordingly. Getting the general populace to panic (and submit to all kinds of sinister procedures, as a result) is the goal. Being rational, educated and unified is the only defense against it.
