THE NEPAL DISASTER: A QUICK OBSERVATION

As I am sure you know, there was a disastrous earthquake in Nepal yesterday.  As I write this, an estimated 2,200 are dead, with the number sure to rise far beyond this already-horrific number.  Countless people are homeless and countless buildings are either destroyed or teetering on compromised foundations and uninhabitable.

My observation:  If this had happened not in Nepal, but in Nebraska, or New Mexico, or Nevada, or New Jersey – would the extreme branch of environmentalists who seem to have overtaken the earth sciences be blaming it on fracking?  And/or global warming?  And would mainstream media dutifully be publishing their every word as if it had come down from Olympus in a chariot of fire?

Think about it.
