Dear George,
Never heard old George linked to tsumanis or earthquakes.  That sounds
pretty far-fetched.
However...recent ice cores taken from the arctic showed that the levels o=f
CO2 in the atmosphere have NEVER been as high as they are today--and all
thanks to modern man.  This is a significant showing of man's ability to
affect change.  CO2 levels affect so many things it is mind-boggling.  So=me
research has revealed that exotic invasive plants actually grow faster wi=th
increase CO2 levels that native plants (which also grow faster--but not
nearly as much as the exotics.)
Something to think about,
Ellen Nibali
