Earth Committing Suicide

Al Gore is going to be extremely disappointed. Apparently, the earth is doing "damage" to itself:

A volcanic eruption close to the South Pacific nation of Tonga has destroyed rich birdlife and vegetation, leaving a wasteland of black ash and tree stumps, witnesses said Friday.

"The island itself is totally destroyed," Lavaka said, "there is no living thing left there, it's all covered in black ash.

"There are only black stumps where the coconut trees were," he added. "We saw dead birds and fish in the water."

Wait, perhaps we just do not understand. Using the incredible brilliance of Al Gore, perhaps this should be interpreted as the earth attempting suicide while in the throes of depression over the "damage" man has done. (We know Al knows about the throes of depression.)
