    Indeed. That and the notion that we need to, or can, save the planet is the highest form of human arrogance and vanity our fragile species has ever adopted. We are highly fortunate if we can survive on this planet whatsoever.

    The Earth was here eons before we showed up and it'll still be here eons after we've gone the way of the Dodo bird.

    No kidding. Our technology prevents way more loss of life due to "natural" events than it would ever cost even if AGW was true. :(

    HEY! US GOVERNMENT!! Where is the aid that you promised, President Obonehead. It doesn't do much good to have it sitting in 4 carriers off the coast of Japan while the people are freezing and starving.

    There was no trouble getting aid to that Pig Sty Haiti and it is STILL sitting in ruins.

    and another thing. Why in the hell would ANYONE contribute money to the RED Cross to allegedly help the Victims. How SOON we forget. Find a reputable charity. The Red Cross isn't one of them.

    The American Red Cross is a very reputable charity. The international version, not so much.

    I'm getting a little ticked at this focus on the nukes and how they were placed on a fault and this and that. WHERE ELSE could they have put these things. THE Whole darn Island is a perilous not only for its island status but also for its proximity to enemies. It's as if we don't care about the people because their country used nuclear energy and nowthey deserve what they're getting?

    The story IS NOT THE NUKES...that's part of it...the STORY is the people. WHERE IS THE AID?? The Japanese do not deserve this treatment.
