The devastating Haiti earthquake, the worst oil disaster in the history of the United States with the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano and the deadly stampede during the Love Parade in Duisburg are signs of human error and the threatening decay of civilizations.
