Message to Humans Doomed to Repeat, don’t be so duped by politicians, or leadership who says; “no one saw this coming” after a terrible disaster, usually they are just covering up bad judgement and inept decision making – often conclusions which came out of a bureaucratic group think committee. No one wants to own up to their disregard for Murphy’s Law, Physics, Probability, or those who recommended against it. Our think tank over the years, has studied disasters of all types, natural and man-made, most of the deaths were preventable and most of the real problems were predicted and forewarned. Let’s talk.
And, can I recommend a few very interesting books to read? I recommend all of these books, yes, I’ve personally read them myself and thus, felt compelled to write this article + putting together my own experiences and observations in the real world. The books I’d like you to read are:
1.) “Flirting with Disaster – Why Accidents Are Rarely Accidental” by Marc Gerstein
2.) “Crashes, Crisis, and Calamities – How We Can Use Science to Read Early Warning Signs” by Len Fisher.
3.) “The Politics of Disasters – Katrina, Big Government, and a New Strategy for Future Crisis” by Marvin Olasky.
The last book is relevant to the upcoming 2015-2016 El Nino, which is said to be the strongest in 20 years and the Sacramento CA levees. Northern California got a lot of rain, but the snowpack was not at 200% of normal, luckily we dodged a bullet, in 2016 (we think, as we are still not out of the woods yet, as of writing this article). Still, that is a perfect example of poor decision making with government budgets and just hoping for the best. China’s Three Gorges Dam is another case in point, one year perhaps within this decade, it will probably fail – imagine the loss of life and damage – almost incomprehensible.
When it comes to disasters, this is an interesting topic when you study what happened and why in hindsight, whether from reading the NTSB air disasters report or those from space disasters like the Space Shuttle Columbia.
Our Think Tank does such research to separate the political scare tactics from the realities so as to know where to put our best efforts before a pre-cascading collapsing catastrophe strikes, and trust me “Black Swans” aside, it is rarely an event that totally blindsides us. The 2008 Economic Collapse was a series of missed opportunities to prevent the crisis. Beware humans, the laws of physics and laws of unintended consequences along with Murphy’s Law are all real.
