Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I had a thought today whilst watching the news. New Brunswick and Nova Scotia and the Feds are in talks with Big Oil to start offshore drilling in an area that, if an earthquake is produced, a tsunami could get my ass wet. I live just north of "The Bend" and I am sitting at about 35m above sea level. As it is, we have a tidal bore, albeit much diminished after a causeway was built which silted up a very wide and navigable river. It's made possible by the way the Bay Of Fundy narrows. There is a creek in a small valley right on the bend that runs not far from my house.
