A warning from Gaia?

The Bali conference was somewhat rudely interrupted today by a 5.4 richter scale earthquake. (From CNN.Com - Asia).

Perhaps our planet was just giving them a little warning that they need to act pdq?

5.4?

Enough to shake a few Martinis round the pool, but I fear not enough to stir many into much more action.

I used to divorce such geological events from climate change as they were hard to connect, but a few bits of scince do at least now persuade me to consider the possibility that there may be some links.

Mind you, I have always wondered what the heck our sucking billions of litres of oil out of the ground might end up doing just in terms of what is (or isn't) left behind.
