No, really! The Commission have produced a communication to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions - "A Community approach on the prevention of natural and man made disasters".

The idea anyone, let alone the EU*, can prevent natural disasters can best be summed up in two words - Jesus Christ!
* A Deranged Organisation staffed entirely with/by deranged people.
