Japan earthquake not caused by global warming

Not surprisingly, a number of environmentalists have recently attempted to link the tragic earthquake in Japan to, you guessed it, global warming. But Dr. Tom Borelli of the National Center for Public Policy Research isn’t buying it, and has this to say: “Clearly global warming alarmists will exploit any natural disaster to promote their anti-fossil fuel agenda. The very idea that carbon dioxide – a trace atmospheric gas – and global temperatures could impact plate tectonic forces and cause an earthquake is absurd and is unsupported by any credible scientific study. Spreading such hype in the media without a shred of evidence is irresponsible in the extreme.”
