    It makes a lot of sense to me. Sometimes I wonder if things like cyclones/hurricanes, earthquakes, volcano eruptions, etc., aren't some form of allergic reaction by this planet to what we're doing to it. I have a feeling we're in for an even bumpier ride the next several years.
    I enjoyed the diary a lot. Keep them coming!

      of the complex system's self organization to diminish gradients of energy that build up.  Sagan says much about it and Into the Cool discusses it in detail.

      I agree about the coming "bumpy ride"  Those gradients are getting more severe and will need to be discharged more frequently and more violently.

      An idea is not responsible for who is carrying it. It stands or falls on its own merits.
