the next apocalyptic horror

mike davis, what hath you wrought? he's practically the grandaddy of nightmare scenarios for LA's future. and now everyone wants a piece. as if yesterday's economist article on preparing for the Big One wasn't scary enough, this week's LA Weekly devotes 30 pages to the deadly threat of...smog? seriously, smog? isn't that texas' problem now? well, no. this isn't just your everyday, run of the mill, fuel emission smog. this is double super secret smog. the areas most at risk? the port of LA and the LBC - both areas where there is a huge concentration of diesel fuel emissions from ships.

tomorrow: the looming threat of locust plagues and what to do when the LA river runs red with the blood of a thousand virgins.
