Now for a little more speculation. We are living in a time of crazy, weird weather, the cause of which most scientists say can be laid at the door of global warming, and to man's failure to protect the environment. The earth may be sending us signals to get in gear. Every year it seems that earthquake activity is getting more frequent and more violent, as if the planet is trying to shake us off, as if we might be ticks or a lice infestation. It is said that animals listen to the signs given by nature, and man generally ignore them. Speculation here -- Maybe Mother Nature has told the animals that's its okay to go and get us?
