Natural Disasters, Manmade Catastrophes, and the Future of Human SurvivalBook - 2008
Tsunami, earthquake, volcano, hurricane, pandemic--are these and other natural calamities more probable--and more frequent--than they were? Are things gettng worse? If so, what can we do about it? Are the boundaries between natural and human-caused calamities blurring? Are we ourselves part of the problem? In Dangerous World, de Villiers examines these questions in a time when we truly need to understand the dangers that we face, to act in such a way that we are not making things worse, and to prepare as best we can for the inevitable disasters when they come.
