wide series of sky-high tsunamis, earthquakes, and mega floods.
grounded my thoughts in general physics. The isle countries will
be in the greatest danger, along with all coast-lands and
life but do preparations as you best can. Then when the ground begins
to shake, rumbling and moaning, and will not calm down, louder and
louder, shaking more and more violently, then escape as far
from the coast and as high as you can.

don't know any safe place, as I myself have done many times and
"RESORT TO GOD"?

Regarding the letter from Kauko Loukas (a Finn) on
the ice-shedding of
Greenland’s ice cap (#137), the March 11th Japanese earthquake/tsunami
disaster is a reminder of how vulnerable scores of millions could be,
especially if they live near a coastline.
Should the Greenland ice cap discharge via continued global warming
it’s likely to occur on a long term basis, but over a 50-100 year
period it will still pose a serious threat to future generations.
Kauko’s third paragraph was unintentionally 'prophetic' about Japan’s
trauma! As to "preparations" it's the world's best prepared nation, yet
is struggling to cope.
I have a problem with Kauko's exaggeration "sky-high tsunamis".
It seems he's being alarmist and catastrophist to promote his book.
Of greater concern is his mention of "God", as if "any safe place"
could be found by means of the intercession of a deity. Kauko may not
realise that many Investigator
Religious beliefs and "spirituality" have nothing to do with any
tectonic event. Kauko should have stuck to (geo)physics, and downplayed
his "imagination" and his belief in a god, thereby increasing his
Kauko believes that he's received supernatural help "many times", but
that's anecdotal, merely survivor self-talk, and in my opinion,
delusional. It undermines the case he's trying to make about global
warming and future tsunami calamities.

readers are atheists. Over
11,000 people in coastal NE Honshu are now dead, many of whom failed to
reach a high place. Nothing could have saved Christians (1% of the
population), the Shinto and Buddhist (84%), and non-believers (10%).

Kauko Loukas (#137) believes in the existence of a
and the power of prayer. He urges us to resort to God to reverse
the effects of global warming.
As many allege that God created heaven and earth in the first place,
putting the brakes on dramatic climate change should be a piece of cake
for the Creator. So on your knees guys and start praying.
Incidentally, with temperatures rising, Greenland's future
problem won't be melting glaciers but an influx of boat people
looking for a new homeland!
