The take-home message here is that life adapts to changing environmental circumstances. Except for some sectors of humanity who seem quite unable to change when the environment does. These people are effectively dead from the neck up but sadly, and perhaps tragically, these neck-deaders are in charge of our governments and policies.

The Solomon Islands, where I lived for eight years, is just north of Australia and just south of the Equator. It is part of the “Ring Of Fire”, the area of strong earthquake and volcanic activity that encircles the Pacific. You can see below that the islands are on a plateau, with a clearly visible earthquake fault just south of (below) the island group. This fault is actually the line where the Indo-Pacific plate (lower left) dives under the Pacific plate (upper right), and has been diving there since forever. As a result it is the location of an unending string of earthquakes, tsunami, and vulcanism. You can also see another fault that starts just above the lower left corner and comes up to the right.
