The world is becoming a more hazardous place. Assess. Discuss.Watch
I have this question, I was wondering if you could help me out in answering it, with usefull websites or topics I can use to answer in my question. I am not asking you for full answers (although, they'd be good ) just topics I could talk about.......like the media makes it more eventful and brings it to the attention of the world.
I really need this help, if you can help,thanks.

Hopefully will be useful...
The number of hazards is increasing each year (it's not a case of the number of extreme natural events increasing (although some may be due to climate change...but basically, the number of earthquakes etc is staying constant) but a case of the events having more of an impact on humans and human systems).
The world is only becoming more hazardous because, as Lukas said, more people are living in more vulnerable areas.
Hope that helps and good luck!
