Last Friday,I gave a presentation about “natural disasters” in the UK and Japan.
In the UK, natural disasters like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, heat waves and tornadoes hardly ever happen. Floods happen about once a year.
By contrast, natural disasters often happen in Japan. In particular, earthquakes, floods and typhoons happen almost every year.
According to the Global Peace Index Rankings in 2010, Japan is in 3rd place and the UK is in 31st place. The Rankings include internal situations like violence and crime and external situations like wars and military operations.
Where would you rather live, the UK or Japan?
What kind of country do you want to live in?
