Anybody been following the news. This is just awfull.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - Facing a second night on the streets, dazed earthquake survivors wandered past dead bodies Wednesday, crying for loved ones or seeking help. Officials feared the death toll could reach the tens of thousands.

Death was everywhere in this devastated city of 2 million. Bodies of tiny children were piled next to schools. Corpses of women lay on the street with stunned expressions frozen on their faces as flies began to gather. Bodies of men were covered with plastic tarps or cotton sheets.

Moreover, untold numbers were still trapped after the magnitude-7 earthquake Tuesday crushed thousands of structures — from schools and shacks to the local U.N. headquarters and the National Palace, where a dome tilted ominously above the manicured grounds.

I really am afraid of the final body count, Very sad situation. Could real distroy their nation even more. The dam world countries offering help need be there yesterday , not tomorrow. Why they take so long. USA put 20,000 troops anywhere in the world in 20 hours. just sad

So sad. I think the death will be huge when it's all said & done. I hope they get the help they need before people start starving or dying from unsanitary conditions.

It takes awhile to get the right aid in there in the proper order (lessons learned from other disasters) no country has these teams sitting on fully loaded planes. First they had to make sure the airport had a good runway, the airport is the center & they will all work from there Myself I am amazed at how many different teams & organizations are there allready & the U.S. Hope should arrive shortly. First & foremost its search & rescue, opening what roads are useable, all the supplies in the world won`t help if you can`t get them where they have to go.

I see that they are starting mass graves, sad but neccessary with the temps there. Guess Batesville will be sending their plane down for the bodies that will be identifed & sent back to their home countries. We all tend to complain at times but something like this goes to show just how lucky we are.

Humanitarian assistance aside, the country had horrible security and policing to begin with and now that is utterly destroyed. Reports of gangs going at each other for looted stuff already. Won't be long before they turn their attention to citizens (particularly those who have been fortunate enough to receive any supplies from aid efforts). Hopefully security forces are sent to protect any humanitarian assistance efforts provided. Things could get ugly quick (even more than it is already, amazingly enough) if the bad guys get the sense they have the unobstructed opportunity to gain great power in the midst of the tragedy.

Danny Glover has already blamed this Earthquake on the U.S failure to get a Global Warming accord in Copenhagen

“What happened in Haiti could happen to anywhere in the Caribbean because all these island nations are in peril because of global warming.”
“When we see what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens, you know what I’m saying? We have to act now!”

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.

Ah yes, that brilliant climate scientist, Danny Glover. Not only does climate change have no effect on earthquakes, there is no global warming. We've been in a cooling cycle since the late 90's and we're heading into at least a 30 year trend the same direction per ACTUAL climate scientists.
