There Were Earthquakes Before Climate Change?

 

The 1556 Shaanxi earthquake occurred in the early morning of Jan. 23, 1556 in Huaxian, Shaanxi during the Ming dynasty.

Modern estimates put the direct deaths from the earthquake at over 100,000, while over 700,000 migrated away or died from famine and plagues, which summed up to a total loss of 830,000 people in Imperial records. It is one of the most fatal earthquakes in China, in turn making it one of the top disasters in China by death toll.

Call me Nostradamus, but if this event happened on Jan. 23, 2023, it would be almost universally blamed on “climate change.”
