Dengler On "The Big One"

I didn't read the New Yorker article that HSU earthquake gal, Lori Dengler, comments on, but she still makes a point in cutting through the media hype over The Big One- the big earthquake supposedly just around the corner:

"A Cascadia rupture is not 'long overdue.' We don’t have a good enough or long enough record of past earthquakes to define the pattern of occurrence."

Now that's my kind of scientist. Acknowledging that sometimes we don't know everything.

The New Yorker article was good but not "news". Hope the link works.
