…but it took me a few days to get around to checking.
L’Aquila, home of this year’s G8 summit, is the same L’Aquila which had a very deadly earthquake in April.
The leaders will meet in L’Aquila, Italy where a major earthquake occurred in April, killing nearly 300 people. There is an evacuation plan in place because the area is still experiencing tremors.
It intrigues me that Australia is not considered economically powerful enough to be a member of the G8, and yet Kevin Rudd gets to attend and sign plans which are potentially quite damaging to economies. Perhaps his secret plan to get Australia in to the G8 is to bankrupt the existing members.
