Is Somebody Trying To Tell Us Something?
A 5.9 magnitude earthquake struck off of Bali, where the UN conference on climate change is meeting. The quake was "strongly felt" by the conference. Luckily, there was no threat of tsunames. I think it goes without saying that losing all of the world's diplomats responsible for negotiating an agreement to rolling back climate change would be a pretty major setback for the larger cause of rolling back climate change. The image of it happening, on the other hand, does add a certain urgency to the conference's outcome.
