I have written a book named Ice-Shedding of Ages ( about the glacier of Greenland discharging violently due to Arctic warming, causing a world wide series of sky-high tsunamis, earthquakes, and mega floods.

I have thoroughly grounded my thoughts in general physics. The isle countries will be in the greatest danger, along with all coast-lands and lowlands.

Go on living your normal life but do preparations as you best can. Then when the ground begins to shake, rumbling and moaning, and will not calm down, louder and louder, shaking more and more violently, then escape as far from the coast and as high as you can.

Resort to God if you don't know any safe place, as I myself have done many times and gotten help.

Regarding the letter from Kauko Loukas (a Finn) on the ice-shedding of Greenland's ice cap (#137), the March 11th Japanese earthquake/tsunami disaster is a reminder of how vulnerable scores of millions could be, especially if they live near a coastline.

Should the Greenland ice cap discharge via continued global warming it's likely to occur on a long term basis, but over a 50-100 year period it will still pose a serious threat to future generations.

Kauko's third paragraph was unintentionally 'prophetic' about Japan's trauma! As to"preparations" it's the world's best prepared nation, yet is struggling to cope.

I have a problem with Kauko's exaggeration "sky-high tsunamis". It seems he's being alarmist and catastrophist to promote his book.

Of greater concern is his mention of "God", as if "any safe place" could be found by means of the intercession of a deity. Kauko may not realise that many Investigator readers are atheists. Over 11,000 people in coastal NE Honshu are now dead, many of whom failed to reach a high place. Nothing could have saved Christians (1% of the population), the Shinto and Buddhist (84%), and non-believers (10%).

Religious beliefs and "spirituality" have nothing to do with any tectonic event. Kauko should have stuck to (geo)physics, and downplayed his "imagination" and his belief in a god, thereby increasing his scientific credibility.

Kauko believes that he's received supernatural help "many times", but that's anecdotal, merely survivor self-talk, and in my opinion, delusional. It undermines the case he's trying to make about global warming and future tsunami calamities.

Kauko Loukas (#137) believes in the existence of a divine being and the power of prayer. He urges us to resort to God to reverse the effects of global warming.

As many allege that God created heaven and earth in the first place, putting the brakes on dramatic climate change should be a piece of cake for the Creator. So on your knees guys and start praying.

Incidentally, with temperatures rising, Greenland's future problem won't be melting glaciers but an influx of boat people looking for a new  homeland!
