‘Unending Seismicity Insanity Syndrome’ Turns Deadly

Woman killed outside Remuera garden centre (Auckland)

A woman was killed and her companion seriously injured after a car hit  them outside the Palmers garden centre on Shore Rd in the central Auckland suburb of Remuera.

The Author believes that the incident may have been due to the ‘Unending Seismicity Insanity Syndrome’, (USIS) a consequence of the uncertainty surrounding the Kaikoura earthquakes.

The car was reportedly driven in reverse at full speed out of the store’s car park, hitting the two pedestrians.  http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/auckland-police-attend-fatal-remuera-crash-between-car-and-pedestrians

The psychosocial consequences of the Kaikoura earthquakes

Meanwhile, government’s Chief Science Advisor, Professor Sir Peter Gluckman, ONZ,KNZM, FRSNZ FMedSci, FRS, ABC, DEF… XYZ (RUFKM?) has warned that: “Earthquakes are disempowering events over which individuals have no control, and which may leave them with essentially no control over how they live.”

“The increased seismic activity triggered by the original, complex M7.8 quake, and the uncertainties surrounding the possible implications of observed slow-slip movements between tectonic plates in the lower North Island, have heightened our awareness that we need to be prepared for the possibility of another significant event. As such, there is a need for ongoing human and organisational resources, perhaps even those of a conflict resolution team, as well as a long-term commitment to ongoing psychosocial support,” Gluckie said.

[What Gluckie doesn’t know, but it will hurt him, is that…]
