Well, it's a little of both. My son loves disaster movies where the cause is
man-made and the govenment tries to hide it. I'd believe it of these modern
governments, although they'd be more likely to ignore it than consciously
There's a lot of gas well drilling in this area, and my son can't decide if
it will cause a giant earthquake or awaken Mothra. Personally, I think it
will just screw up our drinking water. We have so much natural gas that
there are stories of wells exploding from natural gas and an electrical
spark from the pump. If it ain't one thing, it's something else :-)
