Acts of God

I have recently been fascinated by a paradox apparently ignored by many people. As you may know, the east coast of the United States has been strongly tested by hurricanes, flooding, and more. Other parts of the world have also experienced disasters of many kinds. Of course, these events have existed for centuries, even if today, factors we all know increase the instability of the climate.

In legal usage throughout the English–speaking world, “acts of God” are things we cannot prevent, which include any naturally occurring catastrophe (such as earthquakes, tornadoes, erupting volcanoes, hail, lightning, windstorms, and of course, hurricanes). In these cases, no human is seen as responsible.
