No laughing matter


Before December 26, 2004, in the Indian Ocean, most people had not seen a major tsunami.

Before May 18, 1980, at Mt. St. Helens, most people had never seen a major lahar.

Scientists are now warning about the dangers of global warming, something capable of killing every member of the human race.

Pretty funny, huh?
