Ilan Kelman – Disaster by Choice

July 2, 2020

Tonight’s guest on Inquiry believes that disasters are not natural. The tornado, earthquake, or hurricane is not to blame….we are. By making choices on where we build, how we take care of the poor, and how we maintain critical infrastructure, we are setting the stage for a natural event taking huge tolls on human life. Tonight we speak with ILAN KELMAN about his new book: DISASTER BY CHOICE: HOW OUR ACTIONS TURN NATURAL HAZARDS INTO CATASTROPHES.
