Bill Clinton Warns on Disaster Preparedness
Hillary Clinton and other presidential candidates might do well to heed the cautionary advice of former President Bill Clinton, who warned of coming disasters of both the man-made and natural varieties. He spoke during a conference Friday at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.

Clinton, speaking at a forum sponsored by Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, said governments fail to act even when disasters are anticipated because leaders are distracted by fulfilling campaign promises and scrambling to respond to immediate emergencies. Big-picture planning gets “crowded out,” he said.
“This is coming,” Clinton said. “And I know there is no great political constituency for it, but we can avert these disasters for not very much money if they can be put into the public debate and people understand clearly what’s going to happen.”
