Whistle-blower told to shut up…


Good morning Netizens…

Gioacchino Giuliani, an Italian seismologist, is my kinda’ guy. Sensing radon emissions rising, combined with increased seismic activity, he made a prediction several weeks ago, that a major earthquake would strike in the vicinity of L’Aquila, Italy. Gioacchino Giuliani, had driven around the town a month ago telling locals to evacuate their houses, prompting the mayor’s anger. So angry, in fact, Giuliani was forced to take his warnings off the Internet, sit down and be quiet.

Here we see the outcome of the tragedy which destroyed many Italian towns, some of which date back to the time of Christ or beyond. An injured man sits in the garden of his destroyed house after an earthquake in the Italian village of Onna April 6, 2009. REUTERS/Chris Helgren

Now I wonder how the Mayor of L’Aquila feels now?
