The Earth is not a safe place, and I am not talking about people. I'll save that for another day. Many natural forces are arrayed against us, from invisible forces in the air to earth-shaking tectonic activities beneath our feet.

The Thames breached its banks. The jet stream has changed its course and there is no end in sight to this bleak winter.
