2018 may be the year the earth slows

Double, double toil and trouble: 2018 has been predicted to bring an increased risk of natural disasters, especially earthquakes and volcanoes, in some scientific circles.

Last year saw an unusually high number of hurricanes reaching landfall, a huge volcanic eruption on Mount Agung in Bali, and ongoing nervousness around quakes.

And while the evidence is far from conclusive, some are predicting we can expect more, potentially much more, of the same in the next twelve months.

But should we be dusting off our how-to-survive-the-doomsday-manuals or are these so-called experts only blowing smoke up our collective volcanic chimneys?
