Chalko is best described as a pseudo-scientist--at least when it comes to the fields of global warming and earthquakes about which he was quoted by CBS and MSNBC as an authority. He is not a meteorologist. Nor is he a geophysicist or seismologist. His website reveals that he is into "self healing," "vibrations," and alien visitations...
You would think that CBS and MSNBC might want to check into his background a little, right? Wrong:
...I decided to perform Google and Yahoo searches of the "scientist" who had issued the finding, one Thomas Chalko, MSc, Ph.D. In less than five minutes I found that Chalko was perhaps the last person who should be quoted on the purported impact of allegedly man-caused global warming.
It is amazing how the MSM reacts when given any story about Global Warming/Climate Change.
No research involved. Given this guy's credentials, you may as well have asked the local palm reader to give you a detailed explanation of Global Warming.
