The paper deals with an inherited inadvertence that became anachronistic. When physical events like earthquakes, droughts, heavy rains, landslides, storms and/or volcanic eruptions occur in populated areas they are properly called hazardous events. Their probabilistic occurrence is thus emphasised. But hiding human involvement and responsibility in the consequences of those events under the euphemistic syntagme “natural hazards” is an impiety. Nowadays, due to population growth and human cumulated errors Planet’s balance is in danger. Urgent solutions for controlling the created situation are strongly expected. Agriculture plays a crucial role in restoring the harmony between nature’s basic components. It’s worth doing the best that conference’s slogan Agriculture for Life, Life for Agriculture to come true.
