And a meteor hits Sibera and a 17000 near miss asteroid pass on the same day. Is this "earth speak" or just a scientific coincidence? I don't know.....however.

"The weight of the object was about 7 tons and at 48 miles away the shock wave blew out thousands of windows, bent metal and knocked down some walls which were in construction".

If the earth speaks this language better think twice.

Purely a coincidence. The meteorite in the Urals was on a completely different trajectory than 2012 DA14. NASA is also estimating the weight of the meteorite at 7,000 tons, not 7 tons. It is a damn good thing it exploded over 20 miles above the surface, or the damage would have been much worse. As it was, it is estimated that it produced a 500+ kiloton explosion.

If 2012 DA14 had entered the Earth's atmosphere and exploded, it would have produced a 4.5 megaton explosion, about 8 to 9 times bigger. That would certainly have completely flattened a large city, possibly killing hundreds of thousands.

According to CNN, asteroids may just be another side effect of global warming :

It gets better. The CNN empty head was obviously referring to anthropological global warming. All those evil man-made SUVs are just sucking rocks right out of the sky!

CNN seriously. I am just saying perhaps this is the way the earth "talks". to our scientific minds it's the other way...

a question however I read this was a 500 kiloton explosion but "little boy" was 15 kilotons? I don't get it.

Correct, "Little Boy" was dropped on Hiroshima, and while it was larger than anticipated it did not exceed 15 kilotons. The explosion over the Urals was approximately 35 times more powerful than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima.
