DANGERS | EARTH QUAKES AND TSUNAMIS (NOT PEAK OIL, NOR CO2 RELATED)
There is absolute no connection known between Peak-Oil and CO2 on the one side and big earth quakes / tsunamis on the other side. Maybe on micro level the extraction of oil and gas will cause some minor earth quakes (recently again in the UK), but they are too small to cause tsunamis. But earth quakes and tsunamis have always been happening and will be happening. But there is difference: By the media and the globalization of them we see them (very soon after they have happen) on our televisions CNN. Earth quakes and tsunamis have always happen and will also happen in a maybe CO2 and certainly Peak-Oil influenced world. If the ocean currents stop, this could have influence on earth quakes, but the earth surface is formed by the earth subsurface and not the other way around. Still earth quakes and tsunamis will happen, also in the next 10 or 20 years, when we 'don't have really time for them' due to the effects and dangers of PeakOil.
