30 April 2011 - rare skyfall
< yesterday --
How ready should you be for something that you don’t expect
at all? Mainstream scientific opinion before the Japan
earthquake was that such a large quake was impossible in
that location. Some new research said it had happened
before, but in science outlying data points are merely
advisory. In public policy it’s the other way around; if
they say it can’t happen here, whether it’s financial
meltdown or any other kind, take it as advisory.
Everybody who isn’t panicking yet, raise your hand. The
slight breeze you feel is the first sign of the sky falling.
I still want to see the cost-benefit analysis.
give me a clue so sweet and true
