More Threats from Nature than Man

A recent report says this: "

Seven (7) times more people’s livelihoods are devastated by natural disasters than by war worldwide, at the moment.

So, despite the Iraq war, Darfur, etc. -- natural disasters (like Katrina, Tsunami's, earthquakes, etc.) are causing seven times more grief to ordinary people worldwide than war.

So the threat from a hurricanes, floods, etc has caused more damage to people's lives than 9 11. Think about it.

So while terrorism is a problem we need to focus on natural disaster preparation (and relief) even more.
