blaming the eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano on global warming
. Oh, and the recent earthquakes around the world, too.
In a feature titled, "Is Earth Striking Back?"
, Weisman hypothesizes that as 'global warming' melts glaciers, they flow off the land. As a result, the land "rebounds" and "a volcano awakens in Iceland... The Earth shudders in Haiti. Then Chile. Then western China. Mexicali-Calexico. The Solomon Islands. Spain. New Guinea. And those are just the big ones, 6 on the Richter scale, and just in 2010. And it's only April."
I wonder how long it will be until kids are taught how mom's SUV causes earthquakes, not plate tectonics.
