OH MY GAWD...

...WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!...
the sky is fallingUh... wait a minute...

Mr. Cassidy says the most vulnerable region is the West Coast, which has been hit with giant magnitude-9.0 quakes 13 times in the last 6,000 years, the last of them about 300 years ago.

He says B.C. is in the window in which a massive tremor might strike, but acknowledges it's a big window, spanning 200 to 850 years.
Professional journalists... your ethical & intellectual superiors.

Speaking of science, I hate winter...so where's my freakin' global warming.

You guys promised.

Speaking of journalistic hokum... this one takes the prize...
In an interview with the Star, Rae said he was struck by some of the people he met at Toronto’s Occupy demonstrations in St. James Park — middle-class people such as teachers or accountants who feel that their concerns and fears are being ignored by the polarized, political class in Ottawa.
Fortunately, there are journos out there who don't take the bait...
Accountants in the yurts? Teachers in the tents? Mr. Rae must have stumbled into the Occupy Toronto suburbs, where the tents have two-car garages and neat, carefully-kept lawns.
Or, you go with Occam's Razor... he's simply lying.

Nothing to worry about.

That Glowball Warming will kill us off in just a few more years according to the Eco Greenie Gaia Gurus over the AGW Club . . . way before any earthquakes will get us.

You'll have a long wait. They are only forecasting 7 degrees C in the next century. It won't make Ontario tropical but it will melt enough ice to raise sea levels. Plus cause havoc with agriculture.

"anon says... forecasting 7 degrees C in the next century"

sure thing... "the next century".

this, from the same folks who can't reliably tell me what the weather will be like on the weekend.

BC is spending hundreds of millions of dollars to upgrade schools to withstand an earthquake that will never happen. They just spent millions on a school near me and then closed it and built a new one a few kilometers away.

Weather is short term. Climate is long term. I can't predict your truck will need service today, but I can predict it will probably be at the wreckers in 20 years.
Should I presume you sold all your investments because of a short term down trend? Or are you hanging on because in the long term they always go up?

my truck will be at the wreckers... and so, next century, we'll be experiencing a global meltdown.

That earthquake WILL come, sooner or later. But that's not news and hasn't been for yoinks. Even in the '60s these reports were coming out.

"frances says... That earthquake WILL come"

and people will continue to live in earthquake zones or (remember hurricane katrina) flood plains and then have the audacity to bitch when the water rises and sweeps away their lives.

life is choice.

choose wisely.
