"Across the world in every kind of environment and region known to man, increasingly dangerous weather patterns and devastating storms are abruptly putting an end to the long running debate over whether or not climate change is real. Not only is it real but it is here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon : the man-made natural disaster"

- Barack Obama

I do hope the CHANGE that may sweep thru America in the next few days will also take place in Disaster Management in this part of the world and that landslide prevention and mitigation will take on a new meaning and urgency.

My thanx to Dr David Petley of Durham University for the above quote.
