As everybody knows, the Earth has a fever, but what you may not know is that the fever has given the Earth the shakes.
Here are some excerpts from the five-star-alarmist Associated Press:
"... global seismic activity on Earth is now five times more energetic than it was just 20 years ago.
"The most serious environmental danger we face on Earth may not be climate change, but rapidly and systematically increasing seismic, tectonic and volcanic activity..."
Followed by the standard, "it's still possible to save the Earth, but we must act NOW" quote:
"Unless the problem of global warming (the problem of persistent thermal imbalance of Earth) is addressed urgently and comprehensively - the rapid increase in global seismic, volcanic and tectonic activity is certain. Consequences of inaction can only be catastrophic. There is no time for half-measures."
To paraphrase the great environmentalist James Bond, either we stir ourselves, or we all get thoroughly shaken!
And that's the way the shake-it-up, baby Ball bounces.
