We all sighed and shook our heads at Pat Robertson’s ridiculous assertion that the Haiti earthquake was caused because the brave slaves who rebelled against France back in the 19th Century had “made a pact with the devil.”  But we should be just as dismissive of Danny Glover, who claims that the quake is the earth’s revenge for the failure of Copenhagen.  From the story:

“When we see what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens, you know what I’m sayin’?”

Gaia has attacked people who have no impact on global warming because of Copenhagen?  Good grief. Robertson and Glover have a lot in common, despite their worshipping different deities.
