Okay, let me see if I can get my head around these statements. Ummmm....No!
Having been educated with degrees in biology, geology and and graduate studies in petroleum engineering I can't seem to make a single conclusive evaluation that supports any link between earthquakes with global warming. Unfortunately, any real issues associated with the causes of global warming become a house of cards when idiotic pronouncements like this are made.
Earthquakes cannot be caused by global warming. The energy expressed in earthquakes is product of plate tectonics and are subject to forces well beyond the capabilities of our species to impact. Vulcanism does and has historically been the biggest factor in global warming since the genesis of this planet. It too is beyond the scope of our species to manipulate.
The problem here is that these inane comments by politicians and the green wannabe's have there impact because they know that most people won't do any research on their own. That if they just pretend that everything causes global warming... then fear will lead them lock step into a liberal solution. A solution that will have limited, but no longitudinal impact on atmospheric warming.
Don't get me wrong... I don't have a problem with going green.... but there are no "real" solutions out there to date. Windmills and solar will certainly not solve scaled needs and no one wants nuclear.
