Earthquake Hazard Mongering


When we engineer our cities and infrastructures, we engineer for the worst we have observed, or something less than that. With a false sense of security, we then rely on these structures, and build our communities accordingly. Then when a big earthquake hits, we are always caught off guard, and the disaster is worse because of structures and infrastructures we have created.”

I guess I'm just hazard mongering along.  Oh well, earthquakes seem to be winding down, and no self-delusional CBC story, so I'm going into a deep funk.  I'm going to try hard not to write for a while.  :(
