2010


www.msnbc.msn.com

This was the year the Earth struck back.

Earthquakes, heat waves, floods, volcanoes, super typhoons, blizzards, landslides and droughts killed at least a quarter million people in 2010 — the deadliest year in more than a generation. More people were killed worldwide by natural disasters this year than have been killed in terrorism attacks in the past 40 years combined.

It's hard at times to have a really good idea on exactly what is going on in the world. The news we get is received quickly, but at the same time quickly forgotten. This story gives a good snapshot on how Natural Disasters have increased over just the past year. Get ready for more as the world will continue to experience the Tribulation that comes from God's wrath.

Hmm, did they just go ahead and completely forget about the 2004 tsunami in Indonesia that killed 283,000?

The earth is doing what is has always done - change. Sometimes it is very violent.
The difference, in our current times, is that there are many more people on the face of the earth.

Take for instance the 1906 earthquake of San Francisco.
If that magnitude happened today, many more lives would be lost than in 1906.

There is just so many more people in existence and many of them living directly in a location that lends itself to natural disaster - living on fault lines, living in coastal areas, living on the slopes of active volcanos, living on 100 or 500 year flood plains, etc. I don't think there is a 'safe' place on earth. Is there?

The way they talk in this article, you'd think tsunami, flood, earthquake, blizzard, were words that were first coined in the past decade.

The only substantial natural disaster listed here is the Haiti quake. Without that you (or msnbc) would have no story. Were the disasters in the list you provided all of this magnitude, then it may actually be concerning.

After all, the world's population continues to increase at a rapid pace. These losses are nothing if taken in scale.

Hi, world watchers.

We don't need deaths to see that all the "bizarre" happening right now was
well talked about in 1981, by the link in the second line of my signature.

What we are experiencing are only "inconveniences".
It's not fun, but it's life.

Blue skies.
