In our hubris, we build in tornado alleys, flood plains, deserts, frozen tundras, earthquake fault zones, beside volcanoes and all manor of stupid places, all the while thinking we can control nature. But, ask the people of Fukushima, the Jersey shore, Oklahoma, New Orleans and all of the many communities around the globe where Nature has decided to flex it will, who controls who.

Perhaps if we lived with and as a part of Nature, we would come to understand that humanity can only control its own stupidity and not Nature's sacred elements.
