Has anyone recently read Whitley Streiber's 'The Coming Global SuperStorm'?

Man made, man exacerbated or not, able to be ameliorated or not, I think it's high time that we pay attention.

BOMBAY, India - India's financial capital was paralyzed Wednesday by the strongest rains ever recorded in Indian history, with torrential downpours 37 inches in one day marooning drivers, forcing students to sleep at school and snapping communication lines. At least 200 people died.

"At its worst, the rainfall descended in what looked like a solid wall of water, overwhelming Bombay, a crowded city long accustomed to monsoon rains.

"Never before in Bombay's history has this happened," said Police Commissioner A.N. Roy. "Our first priority is to rescue people stranded in floods."

Heads Up!
