Earthquakes are good. That means the tectonic pressure is being released along the fault lines. Gaspar de Portola recorded the first one in 1769 while he was exploring in the desert southeast of Los Angeles. There are between 12,000 - 14,000 a year. #Relax.cnn.com/2019/07/06/us/…
There are over half a million earthquakes around the world and we forget that population growth in vulnerable areas is the main reason why these natural events become disasters. We keep building on fault lines and shores.
By contrast war and famine are preventable disasters yet we can't seem to figure that out. So we worry about the "big one" while our President threatens the "big one" with Iran and other nations. Just google "Trump Threatens". #Gofigure
