Should we be worried? (21 Nov, 2017)

Look out, the sky is falling -- or at least the ground is rising.

Or is it?

Do the predictions of increased seismic activity in 2018 really correlate with the paper on which those reports are being based -- or does that paper simply ask a question rather than make a prediction?

And is NZ well enough prepared if these predictions are true?

Have we learned enough from the recent quake tragedies that have hit us?

Expect the insurance industry once they see this to hike up premiums again..

thats quite well researched in the context or the now normal news reports
i was doing a long term viewer survey for tvnz news but they kicked me off when my comment was how the survey had made me really look at the standards of news reporting nowadays and how appallingly low they had become
if i was worried i would be more concerned with whats been happening around the loyalty islands for the last few weeks and the link to the tonga samoa area than any broad predictions that some years are worse than others
