Tsunami Coming! And Other Disasters Soon To Follow!
For the east coast of the Americas, a tsunami may well do the sweeping. An island in the Canary Island chain, La Palma, contains the geologic prerequisites to create a tsunami that will engulf the entire eastern coast of the United States as well as most of the remaining eastern coasts of North and South America.
The link above provides colorful illustrations and complex mathematical formulas to describe the event.
Impending doom surrounds us. The Discovery Channel specializes in perfect disasters. Indeed, Discovery Channel is where I found out about La Palma. We also face doom from super volcanoes, giant asteroids, comets, disease, famine, and God knows what else.
With this overload of threatening catastrophes, how can one respond? Planning for the future begins to seem useless. Living for today looks like the only option. The dooms day alarmists need to cool it just a little. A constant state of alarm cannot be sustained by an individual nor a society. Constant stress harms the body, individually and collectively.
How about giving us a break, all you dooms day prognosticators?
In the mean time, maybe we should move everything back from the coast 15 or 20 miles, just in case.
