Re: Natural Disasters Up More Then 400 Percent In Two Decades
My first gut question is:

Does this mean that there are more storms, floods, droughts, blah - or does this mean that there are more people being affected by storms, floods, droughts blah because there are more of us in the way?

To quote the link:

Between 1985 and 1994, Oxfam found that 174 million people were
affected * by disasters each year. In the following decade, this figure increased by 70 percent to 254 million people per year.

(* emphasis mine)

For instance that Tsunami that washed through the Indian Ocean - yeah it affected millions of people in the 21st century.

A similar sized event took place in the 1700's it only affected at most 10 thousand people.

The difference was not the scope of the tsunami or the quake that caused it. What fudged the numbers is that in 300 years the population in the area went from thousands to tens of millions.

So are disasters on the rise because there are more storms, droughts, floods, etc - or is there just so many of us now that these natural events are crossing our paths more often?
