    I get a McAfee "Site Advisory Warning - Are You Sure You Want to Go There?" in a large red bordered box.  I stay away from sites that have that warning.

    Your Diary is fascinating.  Thank you so much. I have followed this from the first moment I was made aware of it.  It is logical that there will, sooner or later, be more damage in populated areas on earth from these phenomena in the future.

    We humans fool ourselves in thinking we can handle any and every natural disaster - when it is being made perfectly clear by mother earth and our universe, that we cannot.  We are ants with strategic nuclear weapons and inadequate national structures and incompetent/inadequate extranational groups to deal with disasters.  Haiti.  Katrina.  Sandy.  Earthquakes.  Floods.  Tornadoes.  and on and on...

    Capitalism often fails in handling man made disasters also- i.e. Carnival Cruise Lines, and many more.  We humans set ourselves up for failure - often due to the worship and quest for outlandish profits & more and more money.   The Republican right in the US seeks fewer regulations and less government involvement in oversight = Regressive social structures = every man & woman for himself/herself.

    Thank you for this Diary.  Vous etes Formidable!

      Slate.com? I have a hard time believing them deserving a red box warning.
