Chinese Earthquake Is Set Off by Collision with India
The earthquake in the Sichuan Province of China on Monday was a result of a continuing collision between India and Asia.
India, once a giant island before crashing into the underside of Asia about 40 million to 50 million years ago, continues to slide north at a geologically quick pace of two inches a year. The tectonic stresses push up the Himalaya Mountains and generate scores of earthquakes from Afghanistan to China.

Now, is Al Gore going to make a movie about this and advocate policies to drag India out into the Indian Ocean?
And if he does, will he get another Nobel Peace prize?
