if you speak French

Fear-mongering! It's a global pastime! I watched this édito-vidéo by scarf-sporting journalist Christophe Barbier and had to laugh. The video's title indicated that he was going to discuss what risks are involved after an earthquake. I had hoped that Barbier's exposition would end on some sort of positive, constructive note, but what he did instead was offer a litany of disaster scenarios and conclude by observing that people seem able to protect themselves from almost any natural disaster except water, for which the only answer seems to be flight. Yep-- he ended on "la fuite." Rather depressing, Chris.
