AFFORESTATION: A report published by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) suggests that the tsunami of 26 December 2004 caused less damage in the areas where natural barriers were present, such as mangroves, coral reefs or coastal vegetation. A Japanese study of this tsunami in Sri Lanka used satellite imagery modelling to establish the parameters of coastal resistance as a function of different types of trees. Natural barriers, such as coral reefs and mangrove forests, prevent the spread of tsunamis and the flow of coastal waters and mitigated the flood and surge of water. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsunami_barrier

"Νow, thanks to the involvement of scientists from other fields of science including biology and astrophysics in preparations for the report, it has become apparent that the currently observed events are of galactic scale and are directly related to THE POSITION OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM IN OUR GALAXY, the Milky Way. It is this position that has a major impact on the formation of geological megacycles during which planet-scale biodiversity change is observed": http://arknow.net/site/202/f/2737#.T9sNMJjF-So

Volcanic hazards Risk
3.25 ...There are a range of volcanoes across Europe (such as SANTORINI in the Aegean Sea) which could have consequences for the UK...
3.27 ...Significant eruptions of this type can emit gases and particles into the stratosphere, above weather systems, where they may also have subsequent CLIMATIC effects. [=VOLCANIC WINTER]
"If you had a big [volcanic] eruption of this sort [globally devastating], let's say in the middle of Europe today, the effects would be enormous and a few months might not be enough to get your act together." http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v482/n7383.

Frozen moss suggests climate cooling kicked off fast, possibly with help from volcanoes
The Little Ice Age, a centuries-long spell of cold summers in Europe and elsewhere, began suddenly late in the 13th century, a new study finds. A string of volcanic explosions may have set off this change in climate by belching particles that reflected sunlight and allowed Arctic sea ice to reach epic proportions, researchers report online January 31 in Geophysical Research Letters. Polar ice samples have revealed just such a series of eruptions, says Robock: an especially big explosion somewhere in the world in 1258, and three smaller ones in 1268, 1275 and 1284. - http://www.agu.org/pubs/crossref/2012/2011GL050168.shtml.

Natural disasters rise because we have entered a RISING magma stimulation and volcanic CLOUDING-COOLING period, when COLD winds cause more downpours/floods etc, and COLDER seas leave less vapour, thus more droughts in-between: basic meteorology, hushed up by egomaniac self/destructive obscurantists, who are also MANIAC deforestators, like hating each-other Kain and Abel, who started the first wars, rivals for further deforestation (after a series of volcanic winters), instead of BENEFICIAL AFFORESTATION of all deserts and VULNERABLE deforestated plains: http://www.saharasia.org.

Of course, that does not mean that we must keep humankind in cement babylons, instead of DECENTRALIZATION-AFFORESTATIONS-AUTARKY mutual-aid, the traditions that produce altruist CENTENARIANS!
