THIS IS THE WARNING!
Hurricanes in America
Tornadoes in Poland
Storm in Greece

many people paid their lives for the Nature's wrath
We damaged and killed this planet for a long long time
Now, it's time for us, to pay for all we have done to our homeland, to the Earth

Stop killing the Earth
or the Earth will kill us

Does anyone actually believe that this is Mother Nature doing this? This is all the climate weather changes that they've been screwing with across the world! I think this was caused intentionally!
