    Will this be the Excuse when the Global Warming Doom Fails to Surface in Coming Years?

    Chile earthquake may have shortened days
    Seventh strongest quake in recorded history may have shifted Earth's axis

    updated 8:11 a.m. MT, Tues., March. 2, 2010

    The massive 8.8 earthquake that struck Chile may have changed the entire Earth's rotation and shortened the length of days on our planet, a NASA scientist said Monday.

    The quake, the seventh strongest earthquake in recorded history, hit Chile Saturday and should have shortened the length of an Earth day by 1.26 milliseconds, according to research scientist Richard Gross at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

    Wouldn't Surprise me...

    "You know, Experts are estimating that the Earthquake in Chile in 2010 might have just shifted the Earth enough that it saved us from Global Warming..."

    I'm not sayin' this is what they will do, but if they do...

    :)

    peace...

    OH yee of little faith....

    The Apocalypse is coming! Listen to the words of the profit, and repent your sins of greed and sloth and bow over and worship at the alter.

    The sins of man will be cleansed away in the heat of the future.

    The profit has spoken, do not fail to heed the words of the profit.

    Well, watch the coming years.

    You are stating that nothing is going to happen. I state that the warming will bring changes that will be damaging to agriculture and the energy infrastructure. Damaging enough that we will see major increases in the cost of both. And shortages of both, even in rich nations.

    Prices are going to Increase?... Populations will grow?...

    Helluva Prediction there... We could go into an Ice Age and it would be FAR Worse.

    There has been NO Global Warming Documented in over 10 Years... Since that one El Nino back in the Late 90's...

    And even at that... The 50... Maybe 100 Years of Relatively Respectable Record Keeping, is still so Incomplete and Inconsistent, and not a Reflection of 100's of Millions of Years, that it's Silly for ANYONE to be Predicting ANYTHING Off of it.

    peace....

    All i know is in the 80's I was told, in school, that if we didn't fix the environment the ice caps would be melted by the year 2000. Why are they growing now?
