A month or so ago I posted an entry about the increase in natural disasters this year. When I mention it to friends, the still say, “Oh, it’s no more than usual, or “Oh, they’re just getting better at reporting it.”
OK, so lets put the question to bed. Here are the official statistics. Please note that the disasters for 2011 only include those of the first half of the year. There’s still 6 months to go!
