Tsunami Woowoos

Conspiracy theorists out in force: So it didn’t take long for the nutjobs to come out of the woodwork after the tsunami hit. (I’m especially partial to that specific news story because the guy debunking the woowoos is a Filipino scientist from PHIVOLCS.) Best crackpot sightings yet are from Portland Indymedia: “Was the tsunami caused by a bomb?” and NAZI BUSH REGIME’s ENVIRO/HAARP-REICHSTAG FIRE: seize Aceh oil militarily as ‘rescue.'”

(HAARP is an especially fun culprit for the woowoos, since the auroral research program’s methodology of beaming HF radio waves into the ionosphere — scientists, correct me if I’m wrong on that — fits in so well with their conspiracy theories of an Evil Overlord’s Super Death Ray.)
