Anthropogenic Continental Drift UPDATED

We Are Running Out Of Time.

The best part of the whole AGW thing is how the solutions for reducing carbon emissions dovetail so nicely with lefty desires (World Government, tax the pants off of everybody, etc.).

In the Copenhagen thread below, Cicero answers my plea for a right-wing scam to rival AGW:

Anthropogenic Continental Drift. It's real, the science is settled, and it's got to be stopped before the continents all coliide [sic] in a massive global cataclysm that will threaten the very existence of all of mankind.

Now, everyone knows that continental drift is a natural, ongoing process of the Earth, just like climate change.

The continents, and the tectonic plates they are attached to, shift about and grind into each other, causing mountains to be rucked up into the sky and volcanoes to erupt, and earthquakes, and other geologic shit of this nature.

What you may not know is that this process, while unstoppable, can be slowed down tremendously. We can save lives this way, and more importantly, beachfront property. But we haven't been doing it.
Our inaction in saving lives- and some really sweet bungalows- is tragic. Tragic.

How can we slow down this destructive process?
One word, friends: friction.

How do we enhance the natural friction that keeps these gigantic continents from slippy-sliding all over the place, crushing everyone that you love and burying their wicked bitchin' summer rental cottages in hot lava?

We need to extract the dangerous lubricants that are hiding deep in the Earth.

Right now, under the ground, possibly thousands of feet under your very...uh, feet...are vast deposits of a black, menacingly slippery substance that scientists refer to as 'oil' [TX pron: awl].

We gotta get that shit out of there, stat! Our recalcitrance in this regard is frustrating and downright dangerous. The time to act is now.

No matter the cost, humans must find a way- with specialized pipes and pumps, perhaps- to reduce these vast deposits of 'oil' that imperil us all.

Who knows? We may even find a use for it.

Our Scientists are currently investigating how anthracite deposits may also be accelerating Anthropogenic Continental Drift.
Don't worry, enough grant money and they'll come up with something. Because that's how science is done, old boy.

UPDATE: Cicero points out that The People's Cube came up with the ACD theory. Sorry about stepping on toes, guys. It was an accident.

Oddly, their explanation of the cause of ACD is diametrically opposite mine. Let's all call them Denialists.

UPDATE NUMERO TWO-O: From 'random' in comments.

One thin September soon
A floating continent drifts
Oh SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very nicely done, random.
