Is there any chance at all that the doomsday scenarios of a gigantic tidal wave coming across the Atlantic Ocean could be about to happen?
Haven’t heard of this one?
There are hypotheses by geologists that a megatsunami could be created during an eruption of the “Cumbre Vieja” on the volcanic ocean island of La Palma in the Canary Islands.
Not familiar with the Canary Islands? They are a group of islands off the northwest coast of Africa.
Back in 1949, when the Cumbre Vieja volcano erupted in the Canary Islands, it creased a 2.5 long fissure on its eastern side that caused the western flank of the volcano to slip 2 metres downwards. The thought is that another eruption of this volcano could trigger the western flank of the volano to fail and collapse into the ocean. If it falls into the ocean all at once, it is estimated that this will generate a megatsunami that will race across the Atlantic Ocean in about 6 hours. It is estimated that the wave could start at around 1,000 metres tall (3,300 ft) and would be still around 50 metres (164 ft) tall when it hits the east coast of North and South America.
There is great debate if this could/would ever happen, but if it does, millions of lives would be lost.
Just yesterday there were 2 new volcanic eruptions off the south coast of the Canary Island of El Hierro island (just south of La Palma island). Nearly 600 people were evacuated. (source) El Hierro is the smallest island in the Canary Islands. Get this – the island of El Hierro has experienced over 10,000 earthquakes since July 19 of this year – a signal that magma is rising toward the Earth’s surface.
I knew this was coming:
Mountain Equipment pulls water bottles off shelves – http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20071207.wcoop07/BNStory/National/home?cid=al_gam_mostview
But I kept drinking my litre of water everyday at work out of my nalgene bottle.
If they aren’t safe, what is? Back to glass? What do you carry your water in ?
I linked to QuadsZilla‘s SEO BlackHat blog a few weeks back on the subject of Global Warming. As I’ve stated, I don’t believe humans are causing the earth to warm and that our politicians and David Suzuki are the only things that can save our hides. I specifically have questioned the sun’s role in the warming (or cooling) of our planet.
QuadsZilla dug out references that indicate four other places that are getting warmer – and our polluting cars are not the cause – they are Pluto, Triton, Mars, and Jupiter!
To read what he has to say, visit: Global Warming on Mars, Pluto, Triton and Jupiter where he talks about “Global Warming on Mars, Pluto, Triton and Jupiter strongly points towards the Sun or Some other cosmic force being the cause of the recent global warming on Earth.”
Anyone who knows me personally knows that although I was raised Catholic and was forced to go to Religion Classes every Tuesday night for 7 years of my childhood, as I have grown and matured I have left my Catholic upbringing and schooling behind and I am now firmly against organized religion.
Now I won’t go over my multitude of reasons for this decision because I know some of you are deeply religious and I don’t want to offend for the sake of offending.
However, I just can’t believe these people currently in our daily news. They are Jehovah’s Witnesses. They used scientific methods to conceive and the result was a woman who was pregnant with sextuplets. The Dr’s urged them to abort two of the fetuses to help save the lives of the four remaining ones. Sure. Tough decision. But why were you implanted with so many eggs in the first place. They decline and give birth to 6 babies that are 15 weeks premature.
Bump up to present day. The babies were born in January. Two have now died. The parents refuse to give the remaining babies the necessary blood transfusions that they need for any hope of survival because it is against their religion! HELLO!! Where is your free thought? You believe in scientific methods to carry 6 babies at once, and you bring these precious lives into the world, but you don’t believe in the necessary health care for them to survive because it involves blood products?????? :crazy:
The British Columbia Ministry of Children and Family Services took over custody of 3 of the remaining 4 babies this week just long enough to give them the blood transfusions they required and then reverted custody back to their parents.
Now the parents have a lawyer and are taking the government to court for an apology.
Anyway, rant over, needed to get that out of my system.
The Global Warming scam was designed to
1. Scare people into giving time, money and power to charlatan scientists and sham politicians
2. Dramatically increase the size and scope of government and proliferate a worldwide socialist agenda
3. Oppress developing Nations
Sadly, the scam is working.
This fraud was dreamed up by intellectually dishonest scientific professionals coveting government grant money: Was latched on to by politicians and political groups that seek to expand their own influence as well as the size and scope of government and is perpetuated by the ignorant masses who do not have the capacity to refute what Hitler coined the “The Big Lie.”
Not much more I should probably say while I’m still employed where I am.
