With the recent article showing that the Haiti fault line runs all the way to France, we need to be cognizant of a much greater threat to our beloved Earth than global warming.
Man’s incessant drilling for oil and removing water from subterranean aquifers from well drilling is creating a much greater problem than CO2 production. It is causing increased tectonic plate shifts.
Tectonic plates are the natural segments of the earth’s crust and their movement causes volcanic and seismic activity. As we remove more oil and water from the earth, thus robbing the earth of it’s natural lubricant, the plate shifts are more jarring, causing a tremendous probability of far more severe earthquakes than we have seen in the past.
Global Scientists, along with prominent politicians, met in secret in Luxembourg to come together on a consensus on what should be done about the problem. Said one scientist, who did not wish to be identified yet, as he is awaiting his government grant to research the subject, “Whole cities could be destroyed. We will all be looking like Haiti, if we don’t take some sort of action to prevent this.”
Conference participants said that they watched a film, “Violent Earth”, put together by prominent environmental activists, showing Big Ben falling, the Tower of London crumbling, Los Angeles totally demolished and Manhattan skyscrapers falling to rubble. Many gruesome photos of crushed inhabitants were also broadcast, just to make a point about the human cost of our ignoring this crisis.
Said one scientist, “We were all moved to tears at the sight of a toddler and his puppy partially buried in the debris.” Another dramatic moment in the film showed moose in Alaska, peacefully browsing and then getting sucked into a giant crevasse when a massive earthquake occurred.
Politicians have been quick to pledge support for the effort, vowing to protect their citizens by prohibiting any more drilling for oil or well drilling. “We are just going to have to get used to the fact that we have to quit using oil, and get our water from rain barrels instead of wells.”
When asked if this would cause a reduced standard of living for the Earth’s people, he said, “It is a small sacrifice to make to prevent the sort of unmitigated disaster presented in “Violent Earth.”
As would be expected, Oil Executives weighed in on the other side of the issue. One prominent Oil Company Geologist was quoted as saying, “Tectonic plates have always shifted, and probably always will. Oil removal has no affect on that.”
In response, the head of “Friends against Tectonic Plate International Grating” (F.A.T.P.I.G.), a new group formed to focus public awareness on the emerging crisis, said, “We would expect that the self serving oil industry would come up with such a blatantly untruthful and anti-human statement.” He went on to give a website where people could donate to help them organize their resistance to efforts to cover up the coming disaster.
The United Nations is proposing a global tax on water through worldwide monitoring of wells, in order to raise money to deal with the problem.
A U.N. spokesman said, “We may have made a few mistakes about the global warming crisis, but this is not a joke, it is real, and the world had better take heed and be willing to open up their pocketbooks, or we will see devastation such as can hardly be imagined.”
