I expect flames, etc., but COULD these recent quakes be caused
by "global warming". Could the melting of ice in the polar regions and other changes in snow cover, etc. cause a "shake up" like we are seeing? Does anyone else here think it is possible? I kinda do. It's just my opinion but has anyone seen any science that might touch on this? Thanks for the unrec, in advance.

3. The Gods are ANGRY !! This calls for sacrificing teabaggers.
Seriously, I don't have any idea if there could be a connection.

Good question.

5. It's called 'post-glacial rebound,' and the theory has credible proponents

19. it may not be significant, but in physics, you can't just say
temperature is irrelevant. higher surface temperatures would change the rate at which heat dissipates, which will cause a slight rise in underground temperatures. extremely slight, and inconsequential, perhaps. but heat is heat. physics is physics.
Yup they got it down pat...:rolleyes:

The AGW religion-beast is mortally wounded, you are watching its death throes. The level of delusion has gotten so bad there that I can no longer bring myself to argue on the topic, I feel like I lose IQ points every time I engage one of them.
