Subject: SLS: Why Global Warming Might be Good (?)

Global warming lofts ocean water by the
gigaton to the poles, where it precipitates
as ice and snow, shifting the weight of
the planet in a crushing action which
causes the tectonic plates to adjust.

Imagine the earth in a vise, with the
poles in contact with the vice grips.

This is the effect which global warming
will have, because the heating is not
uniform -- it is most intense at the
equatorial latitudes, where the angle
of sunlight is most vertical.
