One is an anomaly. Two is a pattern. Three is a crowd.

..two is coincidence. Three is enemy action.

Not saying there is a direct connection, but Space Weather is intimately connected with telluric currents.

Opening bombardment by hostile aliens prior to invasion? They're just softening us up.

Seems like an interesting premise to a Sci-Fi book.

"Take us to your leader. So, that's where he went. Ooglab Veeshnitz, you are under arrest under galactic law."

You decide for yourself which world leader is Ooglab Veeshnitz, an interplanetary fugitive.

It was two thoughts,I should have used a separator.
________

But it is a common sci-fi theme that the Earth is being 'terraformed' to make it suitable for some Other Species.

You believe climate scientists blame anyone for current volcanoes?

Future volcanoes definitely. Once Antarctica lost its ice cap the relieve of pressure will get things moving big time. And Greenland, on a much smaller scale, but a lot sooner.

Anyway, volcanic activity does not spread purely random as the causes are not random. If a tectonic plate moves, it causes earthquakes and may activate volcanoes all around its edges.

Xist is blaming them himself. Just in a trollish, back-handed, 'just asking questions' way.

Oh, I don't mind, just wondering what the thought process was there.

Lots of conflicting opinions around here anyway. But I'm happy to agree to disagree with anyone about anything.

OBVS, Elon Musk. He's the only one trying to get a way.
